June 7, 2010- Greetings

Kate Murr

I apologize, dear reader, for the recent lack of story line. We’ve had company.

Riding so close to home, we have had visits from Stuart’s mom, my mom and dad, and our dear friends the Millsaps and the McNertzes (aka, Karen and the Poke Man). We’ve had the good fortune to stay with new friends in Vienna, IL, and friends like wearing your favorite t-shirt on a lazy summer Sunday afternoon, the Rhodes, in St. Louis. We’ve also enjoyed the hospitality of Jefferson City friends Dan and Karen.

I shall attempt to summarize with high points of each day and get back to you shortly with the details, for now the Almirall-Rathsams have captured us here in Kansas City and are facilitating (encouraging even) MAA blog development, copious coffee consumption, and general hygiene for all Murrs.
