Who sent me fancy candy?

This morning the doorbell rang at 9Am giving us all a start: we aren't used to people coming to the house. It was the Fed-EX guy with a package for me. The cardboard was lined with silver insulation and it had freezer packs on the bottom. Inside was a package of fruit pates and a box of artisanal chocolates from Christopher Elbow. They are the fanciest chocolates that I have ever seen; with unusual fillings like caramel infused lavender. Unfortunately, there was no card or any other clue as to the gift giver. This gift is too special and yummy to go unthanked, so please fess up.

After relaxing and singing on Sunday, Marty I went to Sloan-Kettering in NY on Monday. It was a nice drive and not too much traffic. The doctors were nice, but they can't recommend anything until they get the biopsy slides and results from NIH. So I'm on hold. We got Chinese for dinner. My fortune was,"You will spend your old age in comfort and material wealth". Marty's was "God will help you overcome any hardship". I think we got each other's fortunes.

My trip to Sloan-Kettering gave me a sense of urgency to do the things I need to do. I am planning to drive out to Caitlin's and help her move to her new condo the end of this week. I'll be home for the singing at Maiden Creek the Saturday before Labor Day. I'll probably take a long weekend to visit Allison the weekend of the 12th. I want to participate in the Cancer Walk in which she is participating. As you can see from her widget, she is doing a great job raising money.
I have uploaded nearly all my vacation photos to my flickr site, I'll post the link tomorrow.
