I usually enjoy being away, but it's always nice to get home. Glad you're back safely. Was it a good, or more importantly, a successful trip?

CC, I've got a big library event tomorrow in Jacksonville - I'll rest when I'm dead.

Elizabeth, I'm a huge Monty Python fan! That's where the title of this post originates, plus I always add a line.

Lee, all of the trips were successful! Hoping the trend continues with tomorrow's trip.

Helen, I have the WEIRDEST cats ever!

Creative Chronicler said...

I don't know how you do it. I'll be thinking of you (baseball fan) tomorrow night. I'm going to see a play called Cobb at that theatre where I did my show.
