Happy Fourth of July

To all my fellow Americans – I wish you a Happy Fourth of July!

FYI: I flew to Frankfurt from Dammam, Saudi Arabia, on June 22nd and then home to Houston on June 23rd. After the usual one week to recuperate from jet-lag, I finally am caught up on chores …. although my expense report is still pending! We had a ton of rain last Friday, but I managed to drive home without getting caught in high water – a fear we Houstonians always have to watch out for especially during thunderstorms. As always, it’s great to be home – sweet – home.
