"Twelve lunches to pack, 10 lunches to pack, eight lunches to pack. . . ." That is how I counted down the last days of the school year in June, days that felt like they, too, were jammed into a brown paper sack.The calendar was cluttered with year-end assemblies, meetings and recitals. The kids had lost their self-control as the hours of their confinement dwindled.And my throat was a little tighter every morning as I anticipated a summer of two-on-one. Them against me.If hell truly is a punishment of our own making, then I know what eternal damnation will be for me. Two kids in a car and a list of errands.

Iwent to parking court this week to battle for justice, to preserve my honor and to avoid coughing up $52. Rather than hiring a lawyer, I served as my own advocate. My courtroom performance did not go exactly as I planned. It's safe to say I represent no threat to the livelihood of lawyers. At issue was whether I parked too close to a fire hydrant at the corner of Park Avenue and Mosher Street, a few doors away from my home. The ticket placed on my station wagon said I had failed to give the hydrant at least 15 feet leeway.

Hannah accompanies Jessa to visit her father in upstate New York. The opening scene shows them waiting at a sparse train station to be picked up, Jessa looking like Anne of Green Gables clutching her carpet bag. Their dialogue as they wait for Jessa's dad is deliciously funny. Hannah has to pee but the station consists of only a platform. Jessa directs her towards some shrubbery to relieve herself. Hannah is aghast: "You want me to cross the tracks, and step on the third rail potentially.

Thank you Michael Dresser for the stroll down Baltimore aviation's memory lane ("Airport born as Friendship marks 60 years," June 24). In the early 1960s a Sunday afternoon was extra special when my family would pile into the station wagon for a trip to Friendship. Standing on the paver-tiled observation deck I remember being thrilled at the very first plane I ever saw without propellers. I was in awe of the new-fangled jet airliners. These days while air travel has not only become de rigueur but also a major hassle, those field trips the to the airport remain a fond childhood memory.
