2009 trip to Texas: Day 13, final day

We’re back and it’s nice to be home.

What a nice time seeing all six of our kids and five grandkids, not to mention a number of nephews, nieces, grandnephews, grandnieces and, of course, by brother and sister-in-law. Did I note that we had 33 for Thanksgiving dinner?

On the flight back, I was reading Freakonomics by Steven Levitt and Stephen Dubner. It’s not a new book (2005), but I’ve passed it over for other reading material for several years. It is chock full of analyses on how incentive systems drive people’s behavior. Some of the analogies are interesting, such as comparing realtors to KKK members and sumo wrestlers to schoolteachers.

We arrived on time and rode the P&B bus back to the Sagamore commuter lot. A very wise and wonderful gentleman picked us up and drove us home.

Tomorrow we’re back at it. Must remember: Debits on the left, credits on the right.
