Hey S,
Just a quick note before I crash.  I’m exhausted.
This has been a FUN Thanksgiving, even though the lack of sleep is getting to me.  Apart from having to line-edit a bunch of sub-literate essays, I’ve inherited the task of entertaining my five-year-old niece, whose parents are relieved to have me take her off their hands for six or eight hours every day.  Don’t get me wrong: I love the job.  She’s the cutest little girl in the history of the world, but, whoa, is she a terror!  It takes all of my ingenuity to keep her from destroying the house.  
Still, I’ve loved rediscovering the books I used to read to my daughters when they were little.  I even find myself remembering the particular cadence with which I used to read certain sections so as to produce the optimum five-year-old response.  And it still works.  Yay.  Everybody else in the house is busy with cocktail parties and chitchat.  I get to play with her.  Lucky me.
Anyway, I’m wiped out right now.  Hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving.  Talk to you soon.

Hiya Scot,
I am dashing between meetings but thinking of you.  So glad that your holiday turned out better than you had thought!  My niece put on a concert on Thanksgiving, playing two songs with both hands!  
Hope you’re having a good day back at work.
