Karen spent most of the day tied up in governmental red tape over getting her library started. How she remains calm through all this is beyond me. Juliana, our housekeeper brought her granddaughter with her today. Juliana's 15 year-old daughter gave birth about two years ago out of wedlock. The father took off and five days after the birth, her daughter died leaving a very healthy baby that was named after me. Charlini (sort of like Charles) is almost two and is fun to have around. John fixed a wonderful dinner from a recipe he got off the internet. It was delicious--he is a good cook. I just laid around reading, watching the Olympics (we get it live), and playing Tiger Woods golf on the Xbox.
