Lily

My sister Karen posted this photo of her granddaughter Lily (who is, of course, my great-niece).

Lily was born 10 weeks early, and her due date was the past Friday.  She is a healthy and hearty baby who is really quite cute, as babies go.

Random thoughts

Thursday luncheon at Union Loafers, and then dessert at Chouquetteis an STL delight.

Taking a day off in early August is also a delight.


The work of Inbox KP never ends.  I have unsubscribed recently from so many mailing lists . . . a healthy minority of them things for which I never signed up.  Damn third-party resellers of email information.


Credit card fraud is real.  This past week I apparently spent money in Boston and Seattle. Thank you, Fifth Third, for healthy fraud detection software.


Anna the Niece and I went to see the movie Lady Macbeth on Tuesday evening.  Dark dark dark.

Then we walked down the Delmar Loop for ice cream.  Overpriced and not that tasty, but fun presentation, Thai style.


I booked a major Webster-related trip this past week.  Athens/Vienna/Moscow. September and early October.

The Moscow airport is a 45-minute drive from the city center at 4 a.m., and a 90-minute drive at 4 p.m.

This will be a whirlwind trip: less than two days on the ground in Athens, 36 hours in Moscow, but a blessed weekend in Vienna to do some work with adjunct faculty.
