What fun!  I would go, but I know my husband wouldn't.
He won't fly, for one thing, and doesn't like to
travel, period. It took a lot of effor to persuade him
to go to D.C. (we live in L.A.) for our daughter's med
school graduation, and even to go up to San Franciso
for her wedding and then a couple of months later for
our other daught'er's law school graduation. And even
though the latter is living in S.F., which isn't that
far, he hasn't gone up since, though I have. He sees
her whens he comes down here.
