well, tis the season for traveling to michigan and ohio for a few days. i'm excited on many levels and not on others. sounds like we're heading into bad weather and we will have two cats traveling with us. not fun. the other thing i don't like is that my wife insists on driving. i'd prefer racking up points and flying, but i'm not the one in charge. i'm afraid my books won't be arriving in at the church before we leave, so i think i may have to redirect them up to michigan. not quite sure what to do there. well i'm in charge of all the last minute things that need to be done, and i probably won't post until after christmas. so everyone have a merry christmas, happy hanukkah, happy kwanzaa, and if you're an atheist try to enjoy the next few days as much as you humanly can. peace.
