In two days I am off to my niece's PhD graduation in Clemson, South Carolina. This will take a minimum of 3 days for the trip. The graduation is on Thursday and I will head out Tuesday night and stay at my brother Walter's house in West Milton, Ohio (near Dayton), then finish the trip on Wednesday. I hope to get back late Friday or early Saturday. The annual cookie decorating party is at my place next Sunday afternoon and this old rumpled hermit needs to shovel out his house before the guests arrive.
In other news, I picked up a new Oxford World Atlas using a 25% off coupon at Barnes and Noble. It is the sort of book I can stare at for hours on end. It is also Very Heavy.
