where is spring??? we all froze in nashville this weekend, though it's probably in the mid 50's today. Enough! Bring on the sun, while you're at it.

a lovely weekend, the opry was fun, the greencards sounded great, and it was a treat to see connie smith and gene watson. both were in fine voice!

i went to the wonderful downtown nashville library yesterday, and managed to run into a friend and his kids. I joined them for lunch at provence (the great cafe at the library), and killed a few hours hanging with them. Provence was a godsend during ibma...on the saturday of the conference, ruth and rob and i spent close to 4 hrs there. Why go anywhere else? We sat, drinking coffee (and later having lunch)...and everyone we wanted to see showed up to grab a cup. So, we stayed dry, warm, and comfy, and everyone came to us, whether they planned to or not!

i'm killing some time at an overcrowded starbucks near vandy....i'd forgotten what self important jerks college students should be. Sprawled over four chairs, when one would do, leaving trash on the tables and yapping on and on about the latest drama trauma. One did ask before removing an unused chair from my table, but another took it as if it was a god given right.

i'd love an earlier flight back to dc, but my only choice was 8, 1 or 6.

btw, had a lovely lunch on friday with my friend mona. We ate at The Yellow Porch. If you're visiting town, you'll need a car. Food and service was very good, and the company was a-one.

Why starbucks when you can go to FIDO?

I'm sooo jealous.

Bro has decided we need to do a trip to MKE soon.

I guess maybe after lake michigan stops freezing.

Were we really such jerks when we were that age? I'd like to think not!
