    Hey Mary! If your travels bring you close depending on your route, perhaps you could stop by. I'm wishing you a safe and enjoyable trip. I guess it may be out of your way as I'm probably due south of you and not really southwest, just wishful thinking. Anyway stay safe and I'll be looking for updates from you.

    Thank you, Todd. That is a very nice invitation. I'm a bit pressed for time this trip: need to get there by next Saturday in time for a new online work cycle starting next Monday. But I will keep that in mind; I'd love to meet you and your family and perhaps do some observing together! Maybe on the return trip!
