weekend update

Thanks for all the nice comments last week! While we're on the subject, I really appreciate every one, all the time, though I have yet to settle on a good system for responding to them. Blogger sends me my comments via email, but most of them do not come with a valid reply-to email address, so with a couple exceptions – people who've supplied their emails to Blogger, I suppose – I can't respond personally. At one time I said I would leave responses to comments in the comments, but I haven't, much, because I doubt people really go back to check. But maybe they would if I actually did it, so I'll try to be better about that.

Anyway, so much for being on a posting roll, since it's now been another week. I've been at a family wedding in Doylestown, PA, a place so cute it puts buttons to shame. It is also home to one of the best business signs ever:


And the Fonthill Museum, a 100-year-old concrete castle positively encrusted with handmade Arts and Crafts tiles, where my cousin got married.


It was a spectacular setting for a beautiful wedding and de facto family reunion, as these things go. My party girl danced the night away. The next morning, J made a reconnaissance mission to our hotel's breakfast bar and reported back to Iris:

"Would you like cereal, a bagel, a muffin, or a danish?"

"A danish."

"What kind of danish?"

"Salt."

"Umm... I don't think they have salt."

"OK, rainbow."

My child's eccentric tastes in pastry have also manifested themselves in a game she invented called "Tortilla," which, apparently, involves her Opa getting baked into bread a la Mickey in In the Night Kitchen. She'll have plenty of chance to play it over the next two weeks, when we'll be visiting him and Oma in Germany. I doubt I'll be posting while I'm away... maybe a picture or two (or twenty) to Flickr. Talk to you when we get back!
