I'm Back

...and very tired and jetlagged.
I got to know the Amsterdam airport better than anyone should know it. I had an 8 hour layover there on the way to Florence; 8 hours of "_________on flight __________to ______________, you are delaying the flight. Please board immediately. We will offload your luggage." I heard that announcement more frequently than any other. The Dutch don't mess around.
Did I really save that much money by not flying direct to Pisa?
Other than that, the flights going and coming back were blessedly smooth and uneventful. I hate flying.

I had a great time in Florence, and I had a wonderful time with Barbara Crafton and Q. More about that later.
I need a cup of tea.

I can't even tell you how jealous I am that you got to spend time with those two!

Welcome home. And if you haven't seen it already, check out the new White House page on civil rights. :-)
