how I spent my last 10 days

We got home from our mountain vacation at fabulous Daveland a few hours ago and I have been trying to catch up — but with some 1,500 messages, my index finger on the mouse finally gave in.

coupla pix before bed

I am falling asleep on East Coast time still. But a few quick pix: (L)Mia before the graduation (waiting at Madison Sq Garden/Penn Station) (notice the bag I made her), then (R) Mia waving her diploma after leaving the stage, at the 42nd St theatre where Phantom of the Opera plays every day and night. (L)Mia in front of her fabu school. Do you love her hat or what? Here is Ma and Pa Tracey in front of the U-No-What…notice…
