BEFORE THE NORTHERN CALIFORNIA contingent left, I fashioned a sign for Owen to hold up when he was telling a joke......sort of a rudimentary applause meter so that folks would know when to laugh when he was delivering his four year old witticisms. I don't know if it'll ever be used but he humored me enough to take it on home with him.
Packed up and ready to leave, down the hall they trudged,
waited at the elevator,
down the road to their car,
G'bye, love. Come again soon!
