Ok, yeah, there’s a reason I haven’t done a real good job on the keeping-up-with-the-blog thing.

My eavesdropping won out and I grapped the granola bars and headed to her office – just as the man whose office is on her other side came over from his side in perfect synchronization and also handed her a granola bar. You had to have been there – but it was funny.
So, this morning on the way to work the weather was all foggy and sunny and and I had my little camera so I stopped …
