Telephone rings, Hello.
Hi, Mom, have you read your email?
No, haven't made it into the office, yet.
I'm coming to visit. Should I rent a car or can you pick me up?
I'll pick you up. Are you staying with us?
Yes, if it's OK.
So, I'm off to LAX this afternoon, to pick up Carrie. What a great surprise. She'll stay for the week and leave on Friday morning. LAX is about 90 miles away, so I'll leave good and early and try to avoid some of the traffic.
