Denise: this is *wonderful*! it's *better* than wonderful! and oh so familiar!

What a terrific post! Hemingway called courage "grace under pressure," and this is essay is full of courage, running under the wit and humor and pancakes.

You've made my Tuesday.

(Did you ever find Major, btw?)

Awwww, I LOVE This Denise! And Denise and Denise!
