First, some history. I did not even know this race existed until 2016, when I tripped over it walking to Walgreen's from my hotel because it was a sunny day and I needed sunscreen. That day I was scheduled to meet OVERWORKEDJANET and two other... Read more

They know something's up... besides mom, that is. Note left for their keeper. Mail stopped. Suitcase is packed and in the hatch. I'm traveling light and if I need anything that I forgot, I'll get it there. I learned long ago that I tend... Read more
