... and, boy, are our arms tired.
So, yeah, we were gone for almost a week. I'll have a little to report from the trip (the bit is actually kids-music-related), but let me get through the e-mail and mail and stuff that was dropped off at the doorstep first. (And, if you haven't read it, there's a nice YAKMA about Dan Zanes that mentions Bill and Amy.)
(Note: My wife has many good ideas. The "take a day off after a long-ish vacation" idea is near the top of the list.)
