Interviewed by the press!
Ellen Oliver came to the house, and over a bottle of wine interviewed me for the story. The first thing she asked was about vets. "Aren't some of you veterans?" "No" I said, "and we didn't make any huge contribution to a charity either! So if there's no story here, no hard feelings, feel free to wrap up right here."

Three hours later, I reiterated "I can't see what is interesting to other folks here, so don't feel under any obligation to print this. Oh, and please protect from embarassment anyone I might have thrown under the bus."

This is what they published. Ellen said "I have an 800 word limit and
when I finished the first draft I was just under 2000. I had to cut so much - I didn't even mention the safari." (Perfect, I don't think it should have been mentioned either.)
