My handy research assistants are laying here keeping me company on the back porch as I hammer out a research assignment, a paper, and a unit outline on this warm but breezy and overcast Sunday afternoon. This is their favorite chair. I don't like it because they chewed up the corners and it doesn't match the rest of our decor, but I think they would be crushed if it disappeared so I let it stay around. They are as sad as their mommy that it is going to be back in the 20s and 30s by the end of this week. They are also sad that "Mommy" will be leaving Saturday to go to Clemson for spring training for a week. But it's supposed to be much warmer there, so "Mommy" isn't as sad as she probably should be.
