Let's see, most real life stuff.

Saw our youngest daughter off to Japan last Thursday, then recovered her car from the repair shop and drove home overnight. God, 9 hours! Got home at 3 in the effing morning! And the wife had to go to work three hours later.

Then drove to the Delaware shore Friday afternoon for a weekend retreat at Bethany Beach with our church. This is a really nice perk, if you will, for going to a Disciples church. The regional church has had a retreat area at Bethany Beach since the early 1900s. There's cool pictures of all these people in suits and long dresses and corsets and big floppy hats at the BEACH! The accommodations are a little sparse, but there are three meals a day and the property is TWO blocks from the ocean! And it costs barely $100 each! The two-block property is probably the least developed plot of land on the entire Delaware coast! A total of five buildings on an area you could stick 50 condos at a million a piece!

Our oldest daughter is leaving for France in about two weeks. She's seeing old friends at Rutgers this weekend, it's homecoming.

Being retired has some advantages, but only making half of what I used to has become a real trial. Anyone want to give me a grant?

Have a couple of fics being betaed over at TQP. Hopefully they'll be up sometime soon.

Small world. What year are you in? What's your major?

My daughter majored in Art History. Graduated Magna Cum Laude, couldn't be prouder of her. Are you familiar with the restaurant on Easton Ave. 'Stuff Yer Face?' It was my favorite! Primarily because of the beer!
