I handed over the keys for my New York City apartment to my broker on Thursday and flew off to Chicago.
My new place won’t be ‘mine’ until Tuesday, so until then, business trips — and generous cousins in a nearby burb — are providing shelter.
I’m used to living out of a suitcase, so this vagabond period doesn’t really bother me. But it is somewhat disconcerting to not have keys to anything.
We spend so much time looking for our keys, carrying them, losing them, finding them…and now, I got nuthin.
My cousins, on the other hand….
They’re just showing off.

On my Delta flight back to NYC from Toronto today, I was flipping through Sky magazine, and an article on the Mississippi Delta caught my eye.
Where to go. What to do. All the summer festivals, food and drink.
As I skimmed the recommendations, one bolded phrase caught my eye:
Pull up a chair and have a helping of barbecue at Kentucky’s Fancy Farm Picnic – – the world’s largest picnic – – held in August.
Look at that, friends and family! We’ve got another publication to add to the list!
I almost grabbed the PA from the flight attendant to get everyone to read page 83…but decided to let them discover it for themselves.
It’s more fun that way.

I have great friends.
This I have always known.
But the past couple of months, they have been seriously showing off. We’re talking epic love and support.
You know who you are. You know what you’ve done and continue to do every day. So I just want you to know how much I appreciate every little thing.
The Sticky Egg lost its editor and inspiration yesterday, my cockapoo Rory. He was 17 years old.
Quite simply, he was the best person I’ve ever known, and I’m so lucky to have shared his long life.
Rory never knew a stranger, so he has many friends who mourn his passing with me. Thank you for always showing him such love and affection. He loved you all in return.
Thank you too for your support, for listening, for understanding. Rory is at peace now, and with time, I will make peace with that.
Parting is all we know of heaven, and all we need to know of hell. – – Emily Dickinson

I can’t decide if Modern Family was showing its age last night or its writers were.
Did you happen to watch?
All the jokes were either racist or homophobic… but after each zinger, one of the characters would say, “That’s racist”… so does that make it okay?
Ironically enough, in one storyline, Jay and Gloria were both feeling their age as the oldest parents in baby Joe’s daycare class.
Sadly, the whole show felt past its freshness date.
