The Virginia weather really cooperated with us this past weekend for
our Dealers' Meeting. The Valley was absolutely outstanding, with the

Society and the P. Buckley Moss

We're on the last leg of summer, and everyone is starting to think
about going back to school. My grandchildren are either going to camp,
attending camp, or returning from camp. Some have gone to sports camps,
some to band camp, and my Italian granddaughters have just returned
from scouting camp. I've been told that they were really smelly after
a week in the woods and the rain, but I think they had fun. Sofia's
group won "best camping group," and she received a cooking
I flew down to Florida on Monday to spend a couple weeks in my St.
Petersburg studio, and I'm going to drive to Virginia with my daughter
Ginny when she's on her way back up from taking Picco for freshman orientation
at the Ringling College of Art and Design in Sarasota. We hope to stop
in Athens, Georgia, and see my granddaughter Kate Donnelly, who is returning
