Our daughter Laura has had many good assignments in her career as sports columnist in Albany, Seattle and Baltimore and as political columnist in Harrisburg.
This would appear to be one of the better gigs. Just saying.
But she has been working. Here is the proof:

I can imagine how much pleasure you and your wife get from watching Laura Vecsey flourish. And just before I read this I see USA shutout Switzerland with Hope Solo as keeper.

Well, there is the dollop of envy when she tells us about the weather there. She's been putting lots of pictures on Facebook, I hear. GV

What a tremendous experience and excellent write-ups. Portugal is a fantastic place to visit as well, with Lisbon a wonderful city and the ocuntry side beautiful, excellent roads, still inexpensive and food very diverse and excellent. In fact we sat on the same spot as the gentleman with the guitar, but without the guitar. Perhaps Laura will write the next book on future World Cups!!

Thor, we were telling Laura about the hills...she seems to have found them. We were there, oh, a few decades ago. I remember going down a steep staircase a few hundreds years old, steps all grooved, and I went down on my butt....rookie mistake. She is raving about the food, said the chicken dish pictured above was the best she has ever had.

Difficult work, but someone has to do it! Glad it is Laura.

Alan, you are too late. Go carry the laptop for Jen on her Moth expeditions. I am volunteering to do the logistics for Laura's WWC run.

“I don’t think people understand how Covid affects older Americans,” Mr. Caretti said with frustration. “In 2020, there was this all-in-this-together vibe, and it’s been annihilated. People just need to care about other people, man. That’s my soapbox.”
---Vic Caretti, 47, whose father recently died of Covid at 85.
---From an article by Paula Span, who covers old age for the NYT, which currently has 2646 comments, the majority criticizing the American public – and public officials – for acting as if the pandemic is “over.”
Classic wishful thinking, at a lethal level.
