  1. nice story. i can't decide if i'd be saddest to miss the things i love so much (of course - like a carne asada taco, a perfect BLT, fresh summer peaches, yellowtail & ankimo sashimi, Lays BBQ potato chips, liverwurst - never mind the foie, stinky runny cheese, caviar, truffle or pate end of things!), or the ability to try things I never got to eat.... like a lobster roll. or a new england clam bake. (i'm sensing i need to get to the east coast.)

      Next Summer. Road trip wiv just us. Lobster. Clams. Mussels. Lobster rolls. Clambakes. Blueberry pie. Clamcakes. Steamed everything. Fried everything.
      That sounds so good; rent us some big old classic-model car (convertible? yep.) and GO. Music blasting hair in the air, and all the seafood we could ever want to eat. Meet up somewheres with some gals we know out there. Well, ok, at least in that general direction.

              Here's her piece in the NYTimes: It's truly inspiring to those of us who can relate, as well as those who hope never to have to. She's quite a woman.
