As you gathered from the last blog posting, I didn't arrive home in Norfolk until midmorning today. From then on it was sort of a rat race to get ready for the next trip to Florida and Texas. That involved doing the wash, running some errands, and laying out my stuff to be packed tomorrow. During that process I heard our summer resident Clapper Rail sounding off from our marsh (web photo). It's nice to have him back for another year. After her workshop was finished, Joyce came home and we spent the evening together. The day ended with the Cards losing an ugly baseball game.
