Greetings from Richmond

We spent a very lovely Saturday in a very rainy Richmond with Cheryl plus Lin, Kevin, and two of Kevin's kids, meeting them all at the very crowded VMFA, which was having a Chinese New Year celebration in addition to hosting the Terracotta Warriors from Xi'an, and we went to see an exhibition of Steinlen (of Chat Noir fame) cats. Then most of us went to Kitchen 64 for brunch, after which we went with Cheryl to Maymont, which was having a Victorian Valentine celebration. Now we're watching the Olympics and have Adam here for five minutes since he came to pick up Daniel W who's in town for one more day!
