Dear Kid,

Yark! This morning came a little early.

Actually, this morning came right on time. Our decision to do something with it came a little late. Which means I have 8 minutes to dash off this letter, finish my coffee, and be in the car.

We’re headed for a tour of a coffee roaster. I think that sounds like an excellent way to spend a boiling hot Saturday morning, don’t you? According to Dad, we’ll get to see the roasting operation and taste a couple of different kinds of coffees. I’m in!

Six minutes.

Other exciting things on the docket for the weekend: fill the car with gas, do some house cleaning, do a little cooking, brush the Puppy, sleep. Makes you wish you were here, doesn’t it?

Two minutes.

Gotta fly.

Love, Mom
