Kate & I went out for coffee yesterday.
Missing only Maddy... already away at school.
We visited Mom.
She finalized the final packing.
And she ought to be on-board as we speak, the plane due to lift off in about :20. She'll wing her way to Detroit, then to Amsterdam, and finally to Edinburgh tomorrow morning -- or, rather, afternoon on her clock. Either way, I look forward to hearing from her along the way. And all the time.
I can't wait!
