And we had a nice long chit-chat! I think someone was lonesome or bored or both. Actually the "stinker" called to ask his sister to attend the Marine Ball with him! Made her cry for the second day in a row! Now if anyone knows of some cheap tickets or where to find them quickly, please let me know. What we have found so far is around $300 and that may be the best it gets. I am in denial right now and refuse think about her travelling by air in order to not dampen her excitement! Thanks everyone!
