Well, in the midst of chaos and grief, a little humor goes a long way. A package from the Johnsons arrived at last: they had mailed it to our team more than 4 months ago as a way to begin to bond with us, little imagining that they would beat the package here by a wide margin. Among the many fun gifts was a set of little rubber duckies for the Pair-o-docs/ ducks. See above. And now that we're in a leadership transition . . . that makes us not only a pair-o-ducks but lame ones at that.
