Traffic in Atlanta beats Chicago traffic to hell. We got stuck in traffic every day we were there. The worst story of our lives happened Saturday night. We had tickets to Springsteen and were on our way so cheerfully when we got stuck in traffic due to a hideous accident that kept us on the freeway for 4.5 hours. No Bruce. 200$ gone forever. And no Bruce concert. Husbandman and I are working through the grief stages. We're still in shock and denial, but the anger will come probably later in the week. Just getting back into the car today for the 9 hour road trip gave me shingles, but Harry Potter saved the day. Teen daughter and I traded chapters and we're about 1/3 through. The trip zipped by. Kudos and thanks to Dorothy for this picture of Samantha reading Harry Potter. That's a cooperative dog. I wish my foto subjects could be so cooperative. Every time I took a picture of my brother this weekend he kept saying, "Don't blog that!" I love him anyway, but geezlouise, it's clearly an honor to be represented on the blog and everyone knows that.
