A Quiet Night at the Library

Random Sunday Night Blathering

Joker the Bunny has gone home and I am gearing up for a couple of business trips.  The horrid part about that is Alex and Ainslie are expecting their baby sister while I am gone. I took them to lunch yesterday at Noodles.  I… Continue Reading “Random Sunday Night Blathering”
