be good while i'm gone

My bags are almost packed, and I'm almost ready to go.

The plane leaves Sunday evening. A five hour flight to Iceland, switch planes, three hours to Stockholm, another two hours by train to Falun, Dalarna, the folklore district.

Be good while I'm gone. I don't want to have to spank anybody when I get back.

Not sure I'll have time to reply here before I leave, but here's an old photo to ponder from one of my earlier posts.

the bridge

Just wanted to let everybody know that my family is safe. both of my kids work within walking distance and use the 35W bridge on a daily basis. M crossed it three times yesterday before the collapse. a friend was getting ready to cross and witnessed the collapse and began calling people from her cell phone. i think i got a call from my daughter about 6:15. it was very strange to hear about something of that magnitude without yet being able to get info from the internet or local news. of course now the coverage is intense, so i've been glued to the local stations.
