"Happy May Day! It's raining right now, which is a relief given that the temperature was 102 on the back porch earlier this week. Am taking a friend to the airport today - he's going to Paris for two weeks. Had another friend go back to Paris on Monday, too. Am jealous. Have to stay around here, write papers and study for exams. On an unrelated note: found some mushrooms on the reduced price produce rack at the grocery store the other day. Took them home and made a sort of cream of mushroom soup out of them. You know what? Was *much* better than Campbell's. You keep taking care."
