fcbk “Justin, Call Kate’s cell! she’s stuck in seattle!”
I call the number I usually use and the machine picks up. It happens to be her land line number.
Then I get a call on my cell. Her husband has tracked down my number from my fcbk profile. She begs for salvation. She’s in an hour long line with a three year old. Three weeks into a one-week mission.
I go pick them up for a 3 day layover while we watch the skies using a graph similar to the recent one.
I take Kate and Ella to Rusty Cock Ridge.
I ride the pogo stick.
Kate rides the pogo.
Orion rides a Rusty Cock.
Ella rides a Rusty Cock
Kate rides a Rusty Cock.
And she crosses the Skywalker Bridge.
Kate gets the first mini-pie on April Fool’s eve day.
Ella tries the pie on mommy’s face.
