Oh I loved Crossing to Safety. It is one of my favorite books ever and not just because one of the main characters went to Smith. :)

Me too! I hate crumbs, dirt, or sand on my feet or at least when it is walking around the house.

Fantastic! I love the National Parks system. Maybe because my home state had five. I hope that you have fun in the countryside tasting cheeses and crisp bread.

And such nice questions too.
