Letters to Holly

Lies. All Lies.

Your Sister is catching flak from all sides contending she has "pregnant brains." Parents and students accuse her of losing papers to excuse their negligence; administrators think she'll flake out on next semester's teacher workshops. The grapevine isn't helping. One upset teacher called her to ask why she was quitting teaching altogether. She spends a great deal of time putting out fires and less time grading. Another teacher party has been announced for this weekend, and I hope to help her make an appearance.

We did manage to walk last night around the neighborhood. Downhill was easy. Not so much for uphill.

Picture of the Day
The New York Times at Wicker Man? I dunno.
