mission accomplished, pal

Eden M. Kennedy is the co-author (with Alice Bradley) of the book Let's Panic About Babies! (St. Martin's Press).

A former college-radio DJ, Mrs. Kennedy has driven cross-country six times in a 1973 Volkswagen Bug and enjoys standing on her head.

Currently she works a straight job and is just about finished writing her first novel.

Slow Traffic

Driving the narrow back roads around here you always have to slow down for one thing or another, tractor trailers trying to make 90-degree turns mostly, or a peloton of morning bike riders. (Don't those people have jobs? Oh, wait, neither do I. Well, carry on.) But occasionally you get stuck behind a truck that's driving under the limit so as not to dump several dozen water-filled buckets of flowers on their way to market, and that's okay because then I can balance my camera on the steering wheel so the picture isn't blurry.
