What a week


To my regular victims, I mean readers, I have to apologize for my lack of activity over the past few days. The week began with a difficult and heart-rending decision to euthanize a beloved family pet. And that was the good part. The next day, my grandmother died. Add to that an ice storm that rendered my rural driveway impassable and unclearable, forcing my out-of-town relatives who came in for the funeral - including my elderly parents – to schlep up and down the hill like a bunch of Sherpas, and you can imagine what a lovely time we’ve been having. Oh, I forgot to mention the mother of all head colds. I’m expecting the plague of locusts any time now. But, as Scarlett O’Hara said, “Tomorrow is another day.” And, hopefully, tomorrow I can get back to blogging – and breathing. Go Steelers!
