I agree. From Booker to Michael Clayton. Whoda thunk?

I'm guessing it's been a while since you've been in a professional office, other than medical ones, Addie Especially in the South, where temps get quite high, it's common for women to wear sandals, and even flip flops, to work. A good pedicure is practically a required accessory.

Best of luck, Katy!

You will be sent home to change your sandals to appropriate foot wear. And it will go on your record. Boston still hangs onto the old rules.

Okay. Just don't say "in this country" when you're speaking only about Boston. It's confusing for our overseas friends

No. I'm gently chiding you You have this habit of saying things like "we at DC" and "in this country" when stating your opinions, as if you speak for all of us, or as if everyone in this country does this or thinks that when it's simply not true. So I'm suggesting you just speak for yourself so people don't get the wrong idea.

Doing something I should've done nearly 4 years ago. Editing and printing our wedding pictures.

A dear friend, who attended our wedding, took loads of pictures and generously made a video disk program (with music) of some of the photos and also put all photos on a separate disk so we could edit/print as we wished.

Well, that's what I've been doing since last night. I'm almost done and am looking forward to putting them in a beautiful album another friend gave us as a wedding gift.

It's been wonderful reliving that day again. Everything about it was perfect.

That sounds like such a happy project to be working on Katie! A little music in the background, a plate of wedding dinner foods, and it will be like being there all over again.

Besides Addie, for those of us not born or reared around these parts, Boston IS "another country". I know I know, danged foreigners. Well that's me, a danged Ohio born-and-bred foreigner!

Do they have a name for you?
Where I live I am called a "transplant".
And god forbid I would have grown up in the city of Erie
They frown upon those people with great disdain.
