Back in Los Angeles
Los Angeles, California: A month away from
Little Leo proved to be just too much, so as soon as we arrived home from the
track meet in Eugene, I hopped on a plane to Los Angeles. (DT has Trustee
meetings all week, so remained in Oregon.) Lisa fetched me from
the airport, with a sleeping Leo strapped into his car seat. When he opened his
eyes and saw me, Leo gave me a big smile and asked if I was coming to his house.

There was another reason for my trip to Los Angeles. Lisa great
friend, Lady Katharine, was married in London a few days ago. The newlyweds were

fancy steakhouse where it was basically guaranteed the visiting Brits
would spot a celebrity. We had a great meal, but no movie stars.
