It looked cold and nasty today as I drove out of town.


Michigan has a lot of scary double-dump trucks driving around. The regular ones are bad enough. At home I think they are all driven by retired NASCAR drivers.










The rain hit before I made it to Ann Arbor. I kept the cruise control fired up because there was no way I was missing my flight.



The best part was flying home on the Shamu plane.


I’m off tomorrow. I will be getting ready for Sara’s 9th birthday party on Saturday. That means I have to assemble her special surprise present tomorrow. I’m hoping she won’t read this until after her birthday so she does not beg me relentlessly to tell her what it is!
