It’s finally here! I’m off for a week to visit my parents and travel with them to Stratford, Ontario, for our annual pilgrimage to see some of the best theatre in North America at the Stratford Festival of Canada. And you, Dear Reader, get to go along, too.

I’ll have more on the shows we’re going to see and other observations of the journey throughout the next few days. In the meantime, please make sure your seatbelts are securely fastened and your seatback and tray tables are in the locked and upright position for take-off. The flight attendant will be by shortly to offer you a selection of breakfast choices (did I mention that we got upgraded?). Sit back, relax, and enjoy the time off.
