Away

A friend of the family passed away earlier this week. Not too much to say about it -- she was my aunt's mother and so a sort of grandmother-in-law. She was elderly, she'd been fading, so it's not really a surprise. But it's still a sad thing. I especially feel bad for my aunt; they were very close.

Anyway, various memorial events are taking place tomorrow, in a town four hours north of here. So that we don't have to be scrubbed and ready to go at 7 AM, T and I are driving half-way once we get off work. Which means I'll be offline tonight, and probably most of tomorrow. See you all upon my return. Hopefully next week will be a happier one for all of us.
