A successful shower

Tara is a gracious bride-to-be.

The shower was a success. Nearly all the copious amounts of sweets were consumed, washed down by all of the punch and most of the coffee. Guests seemed reluctant to leave. Always a good sign.

Now the countdown to the wedding. It sounds like Tara is ready.

Note: The little cartoon of Dan and I next to our Trekker on the left side of this page was drawn by Tara.

Hovering vs Sitting

Many of us are looking forward to a trip away from home this summer. Pamela Redmond Satran’s post today on her blog, How Not to Act Old, is funny.

She reminds us of our mother’s advice not to sit on a public restroom seat. As she points out, many of us can no longer hover above the toilet as in the past. So, rather than give in and sit down, there are some that just stand. Ms. Satran’s post addresses this practice.
