Good morning, loyal readers, this is Patrick the substitute blogger here.  I dropped Karen and the girls off at the train station this morning and this is my first unsupervised post.  This should be a snap.  I have a technical job, and this is a technical kind of thingy, blogging.  Except I think I have to stay under 140 characters.  I have to ask my daughters about that .   Karen also always shows a picture, but I can take pictures too.  Easy peazy lemon squeezey.  Next post. Picture, picture, picture.

Anyway, only two dishes and a lamp broken so far.  Things are running smoothly. As long as Karen doesn’t find out about the lamp.  She really liked that one. Talk you all soon. – pjw
