I’ve been dealing with some things you know about — like the death of our upstairs neighbor — and some work-related things you don’t. And I’m just gonna keep that boring crap to myself.

But on the office front, I opened a desk drawer that I hadn’t in awhile and found a frame I’d purchased not long after I started working here. My intent had been to fill it with a picture of my beloved Susan and here we are eight months later and I finally got around to doing that today with one of my favorite of her taken at the Eiffel Tower overlooking the Seine when we were in Paris just about this time last year:

Now whenever I need a smile I can just see her smiling back at me.
