[By the time this posts tomorrow morning through the magic of Blogger scheduling options, I hope to be on the road for at least an hour.]
This post is to explain yesterday's blog title.
As you know, I've been fretting about what shape I'll be in for this trip. I was talking to Mike about it a few weeks ago and he told me not to worry, it'll all be good no matter what, and besides, "You've always suffered well." I laughed at that, but it is true, at least in the mountains. In fact, both Mike and I have suffered well through a variety of mishaps on trips. I hope I still have that quality.
I decided it was such a good phrase that it deserved to be our motto. I asked my daughter Meghann to translate it to Latin. She's an über-nerd who not only took Latin in high school but was also president of the Latin club and married someone who also took Latin (and for the record, I took a semester of it in high school, too). Following is her explanation of what they came up with.
Now you know. And for some reason, that all reminded me of this.
