Bash #8

The party's over: the guests have all gone, and LOML is putting the children to bed. I've walked the dog up to the square and back, and am about to collapse -- as is usual after this bash.
We have a major party every year on the 4th of July: this is our eighth annual such bash, one for each year we've had undergraduate students learning how to do research. We figured that first year that we'd an obligation to make the students feel at home, so we would throw a Memorial Day party, and then for much the same reasons, we'd throw a party for the 4th of July too. And both traditions have stuck.

Now, if LOML and I could just learn how to throw a minimalist party....

Yours, maximalistly speaking,
