Hi Jean- so great you're coming by! I tentatively planned on leaving NYC August 14th. But, I don't think it would hurt to stay thru the weekend. We've got to get you out on the water- want to do some free kayaking around Manhattan while you're here? You're welcome to stay on my couch.

Love to see you in the NY area, pretty flexible during latter part of the week of the 11th at this point.

Thanks Steve, Jill, Howard and T. I integrated into the doc what I heard from you. Will keep you posted on details. Finals by email or voice confirmation.

Hi Jean,
I'm generally free after 8 on Tuesdays (although I have a dance class until then) and Wednesdays. Brunch on the weekend would work, too. Or, if you'd like to come out to Jackson Heights for lunch or coffee, we could meet during the work day.

Dear Jean,
I'm flying back into France the 20th.
So, I would love to see you before. 18th? I don't know yet my plan. Let's say 17th or 18th.

--Anonymous (Not signed in).....Tue Jul 15 07:03:59 -0700 2008

Dear Jean,
The 13th would work fine, and either at Goucher in Towson, or I could get to DC...
