Service a bit interruptus: We've been whisked away by overnight train to sojourn with family from distant parts here in the southernmost part of Maine.
With apologies, this is a special event. Making their first-ever North American appearances:
A 7-month-old great nephew, live and direct from Dublin (with his parents). Also, and a bit more magically, given relations between the two countries: The 16-year-old daughter of our niece's husband, live and direct from Havana!
Also present, but old hat: Two great nieces, ages 2 and 8!
(They've embedded themselves in a small heated pool. But only with supervision!)
As we've occasionally noted, the world is full of superlative kids! We thought we might do light posts this week, but it looks like services may be non-existent until we return to our sprawling campus this Thursday evening.
By the way, do you know what one wall said to the other? Not to brag but, provoking amazement, we incomparably did!
