Gail is in San Diego

My dear Gentle Reader, I will be away in San Diego for Condor this weekend, leaving Friday morning.

via Janet Borkowski on FB

I'll have a mobile device with me but no computer. I'll be on social media occasionally, but nothing major and no more blog posts until I get back. At which juncture, I hope to have tons of delightful things to tell you and photos to share.

Take care. And don't drink ALL the tea while I am away.
