Saturday it was good to get with my sister and her family. Catherine, Matthew and myself helped Catherine wash her new BMW. Matthew got more water on me than the car. There might have been a water fight. But Matthew is tough. He can take it.

I flew home Sunday. Uneventful. Except for the flight attendant's comments:

"The flight attendants will be coming through to collect your cash . . . I mean your trash. And don't try to hide it. You know who you are. We'll find it."

"Ladies and gentlemen the pilot has turned on the fasten seat belt sign. We are approaching the airport. Please return your seats to the upright and most uncomfortable position. If you have any baggage out please stow it under your seats and fix your hair. Put away your laptops, iPods, Palm Pilots, and toasters."

"Thank you for flying our airlines and remember you can book your flights through our web site. You can do so in your pajamas or not."

"We hope you've enjoyed your flight as much as we've enjoyed taking your for a ride."

For every action, there is an equal and opposite criticism.
