It's been so long since I've posted here. It seems Mr. Cobblestone and I have had very little time at home lately as we've been criss-crossing the country, mostly visiting with the little pebbles. They really aren't so little anymore and it does the heart good to see them out in the world creating their lives. We are indeed proud.
I wanted to share with you an experience we had during one of these trips. For years now we have approached air travel with a rather unconventional slant. As opposed to the masses who arrive at the airport in apparently their comfiest sweatshirts, well broken in sneakers and elastic-waisted polyester pants, we choose instead to outfit ourselves in business casual or better. (Wouldn't Stacy and Clinton be proud!) It has been our experience that doing so results in much more pleasant interactions with everyone from airport wait staff, TSA, flight attendants, etc. Although the adage is to not judge a book by its cover, I do believe it is simple human nature to do so.
