Cheshire cat

When last we saw our heroine, she was...

This trip to Louisville was successful.
I should compose a song about it. A list song. Everyone loves those.
These lines would feature:
2 Robins
A MeeMaw a day
Aunts, Uncles, Cousins
Phone calls
2 comprehensive Seders.

Okay, so maybe it's a boring song.

Lets get to it, shall we?

Lets see, rest of the trip: got to play majjong with Robin, Mom, and Meemaw. Meemaw was the big winner (35 cents), but we all Mahjjed at least once, so that was cool.

My mother is attempting to downsize her house. I think she and dad are thinking of moving, although the phrase "selling the house" has not been explicitly uttered. I'm torn between wanting to drive down so we can load up the car with things before she gives them away or insisting we fly so we don't have to take everything. Among the things they insisted we take was the three unframed prints from a set of holiday prints they had as a legacy from Uncle Bert. We now have Shabbat, Channukah, and Passover. I dropped them off at the framer's yesterday. They're getting matching frames, brushed pewter with black trim, double mat with the top mat an off-white and the lower mat coloured to compliment the colours in the print.

The framer was delighted with the prints. They were hand-produced, each colour laid down separately. He was just delighted. He recommended I check ebay to see how much similar things were selling for, which I did, but I didn't find anything similar, so you know, that's that.
