Another busy event weekend is in the books, and by the time you read this I will hopefully have made it to my 5:45 a.m. flight. Also known as way too early. With an expletive in between. You get the idea.

Thanks again to the Broussard family for putting together such a great destination and also to Nancy and Caroline Dein, the McFall family and everyone else who was so hospitable to me throughout my stay!
