Friday, June 18th...........a red letter day. Sagezilla finally got her cast off after a month of uni-footin' it with crutches and a broken ankle from a no handed cartwheel gone bad.
My "little sister", who has been taller than me for about 25 years--as she likes to point out--flew in from near Portland, Oregon in near monsoon conditions. Her flight landed early and then all subsequent flights were promptly grounded as Chicago got caught in a deluge and high winds.
We were in the car at the time and saw a whole 6' sidewalk stack of dog crates blow over, and a street full of people's umbrellas invert. She got to spend the day and well into the night, watching the "pack a family of 4 for 14 days abroad without strangling anyone" show.
Saturday we all leave for a 3 generation, 7 person, once in a lifetime, Swedish holiday.
