Arriving at a little neighborhood train station in South Bend, Indiana, I wasn't sure where I was.  I am used to South Bend being "Notre Dame" town -- bigger than life.  A couple minutes later my brother pulled up.  I haven't seen my brother in three years since he visited me in WA.  But, I haven't seen my nieces and sister-in-law in seven years!  My eldest niece (Jennifer) is almost 28 years old, but hasn't changed in appearance one bit.  My youngest niece (Theresa) is 19 years old and she is now a young woman, but I am used to seeing her as a young adolescent and prior to that a little child.  It is great to get reacquainted with her, and she even wants to come visit Rhonda and me in Washington sometime! 

A few days later now after the paragraph above, today was my book-signing at Borders Books in South Bend.  A number of people came in, but the only sales were three books for my brother (Christmas gifts for his friends) and two others who showed up (one, a SABR member in South Bend and another friend of my brother's family).  However, the store manager wanted me to sign eight more books that she will keep in stock to try and sell for Father's Day and/or in their baseball book section.  After the book-signing, we all went to dinner at Rocco's Italian Restaurant.

I hardly watched any TV this past week while my brother and sister-iin-law were at work.  I walked over to Notre Dame about three times this week, and worked on my computer communicating with my spring quarter online students. 

Next will be a visit to Wisconsin with four booksignings scheduled there, and one in Minnesota before I head home....
