[ Done with late for a little while at least; we're back after the big trip to Maine. ]
One of the things bunny_hugger and I kept meaning to do was to have a barbeque cookout. We'd meant to do it the previous year, and not managed; we kept meaning to do it some evening this week, and not managed. bunny_hugger had suggested the best solution we had now: have a cookout for lunch instead.( Collapse )
But I did eventually catch my father, and got in the car even though he insisted we had to move move MOVE because the airport cop was supposedly on his case so I didn't have the time for luxuries like opening the back door of the car to put my bags in; I had to throw them over the seat as I lunged inside. But we got home safe and sound, ready to go back to work.
