...for hosting me (and letting me stay even when you've gone away!) during my stay in the Bay Area, dB. Your birthday was a blast (ice cream cake--yum), the tech-art group you're in is very cool, and you and your friends are accommodating and wonderful as usual.
Post some ladybug pictures and good luck with figuring out how to make/alter that circuit for your earrings (will they be done by the time I get back?)!
Private to the boy: is it a microscope?
