Home Sweet Home

When we arrived back in town 36 hours ago after another grueling flight from USA we felt our welcome back by the busy people of the area. As I rolled down the car window to assess the coastal winter temperature, the night air was broken with the familiar tunes of helicopters and fighter jets on their way to that Palestinian seaside resort just south of here. Ah, it's good to be back? Our early jet lagged morning brought us the familiar news of more dead "militants" and the ever familiar rumblings of our neighbors' calling cards. If I ever forget how home here feels, just a few minutes' wait and it all quickly comes back. Seems we didn't miss much while we were gone.

Anyway, congratulations to my baby sister for finally getting married! And, sorry Moose - you're now part of the family and we're officially no longer obliged to be on our best behavior (yes, that was our best behavior). Seriously, we love you both and have a great honeymoon!
