Home From SBL

SBL 2007 in San Diego

The flight yesterday was less of a hastle than expected. We got the Little People toys returned to our friend Lark, who was really great to us during our visit. In the morning, we had a nice breakfast at the pancake place that Catherine liked, where we ran into Prof. Julie Galambush from William & Mary and had a nice conversation (she pleased Rebecca by feeding her raisens). Then, off to the airport, where my bag was 3 lbs over the limit (we had to remove an item and carry it on). We've had this problem with SouthWest before; I must admit it's a pain. Aside from the waiting area being very crowded, the SouthWest experience from then on was great. There were 7 free seats on the plane, so Rebecca had her own seat with Catherine and me, which really was a huge relief. I really don't know how she would have managed on my lap. As it was, she spent half the flight straddling two seats and talking to the folks in the seats behind us. For about an hour, she slept with her head on my lap and her body spread out over the window seat. Anyway, Ron picked us up at BWI and we had a nice ride home and good night sleep. Thanks Ron!

I believe I sat next to Julie Galambush in the Pentateuch section. We chatted for a while and realized we had you as a mutual friend.

It was good to see you and the rest of the Family in San Diego!
