David and I are leaving the country for probably a little over a week or so. Please don't worry if you don't hear from us. We're going to visit an old friend at Melk Abbey and that place is not exactly known for it's mobile phone reception and wireless internet service. If you need anything in our absence, Liz says she'd be happy to help. Deirdre says the same thing. If you have to reach me, you can call the monastery and leave a message with whomever answers and we'll ring you back when we can.
Please be safe and careful. And congratulations on getting in to Chicago, Deirdre. That's fantastic news and you deserve it.
