Dramatis persona*

helenhead Helen Chick

I've always wanted a bumper sticker that said "I'm a female, LDS/Mormon, Scout leading, geocaching, piano-playing, bicycling, mathematics educator with a PhD in maths ... and I VOTE"!

In the morning there was misty drizzle around Symmons Plains; in the evening there were some dramatic cloud formations at sunset just north […]
