Where it is also raining

Our promising young potato, Suzanna, is being temporarily transplanted to the Columbus College of Art & Design for a three-week visual arts summer seminar. She won a scholarship. So book/daddy and the missus will abandon the hulking, still-leaking water heater and fly off to Ohio tomorrow to see to it that the sprout is well set up. Or, at least, that's the plan. Given the state of the American airline industry and this summer's weather, we will be fortunate if we're not left stranded in a swampy cornfield a few feet past the runway at DFW.

In any event, book/daddy operations, once again, will be temporarily suspended.
