The News from Here

Son Tim, the Brave and True, spent the weekend at the Phish concert in Coventry, Vermont. Trouble is, his car broke down, and he and his friend Meaghan have been stranded there for two days. The Lovely L is on her way now to pick them up, a 3 to 4 hour drive. As for the Phish concert, it's already becoming legendary. 65,000 people and lots and lots of mud. Kids parked their vehicles in the fields, which were then promptly inundated with the torrential remnants of Hurricane Charley. Local tow-companies will be busy for days to come, they tell me, hauling those cars out of the mud!

Anyway, pray that Laurie connects up with Tim and Meaghan without difficulty, works something out with the broken car, and that all make it home safely.
