Cathy, Ken, and Herman arrived home on 2008 July 27 Sunday. Yesterday, Tuesday, we were officially welcomed back home by an earthquake. It was one of those long rolling sensations that lasted a few seconds, and rattled the dishes in the cupboards (but the dishes did stay in the cupboards). I was watching Herman eating his food on the tile floor, so when the house began to shake, Herman slid sideways across the floor. Hmm.. He didn’t seem to happy about that, so he ran into the carpeted living room where he had better footing.
