September 22nd

So, happy Bilbo's birthday (though I think of it as Silmarillion day.

As my time for my current research trip winds down,  there's always that final rush to get things to a good stopping point.  It's been a successful trip, and I've enjoyed seeing old friends and being in Milwaukee again (after all, I lived here for more than ten years). What can you say about a city that not only has a zeppelin mooring post downtown but also a bronze statue of a heroic little mother duck and three of her ducklings?

Still, it'll be nice to be back home again.
