Response to Richard D (Reply #22)

32. By the way, for clarification...

...my "there's no excuse for this" comment was meant to be rhetorical. Of course there are good reasons why a person wouldn't have time to produce a CD. My daughter has a lot of kids, and I don't know how she gets anything done. I find myself exhausted when I babysit them for just a few hours.

(Last December I was telling one of my grandchildren, "You're going to take a long trip for Christmas with your brothers and sisters and your mom and dad. Your school will stop for two weeks, and your dad won't have to work for two weeks, and ..." And then I had a epiphany. I turned to my daughter and said, "You don't ever get a vacation, do you?" We talked about that and likened it to a business trip. Everyone else gets a vacation, but Mom gets a business trip. Mom has to do her regular job as always, but she has to do it on the road, while living out of a suitcase!)
