The blot on all this is that back home in Vermont, our house was broken into by thieves last Tuesday, they took a number of things including a laptop computer, and they tried to steal Ellen's car but gave up because on an icy driveway - they kept going into a snowbank! They finally abandoned the car with motor running. John found it the next day, doors open, tank empty, battery dead! Snow had obliterated all tracks. So we'll have to deal with that when we get back tomorrow. Sigh! But in every other way, it has been a great birthday week. Thank you Betsey, Rob and Katie!
We'll see Betsey and Katie in just two weeks at Stewart's memorial service in Elgin. Ellen, John and I will be driving out - it will be a great family gathering in honor of Stewart.
So - stayed tuned!
