As I noted, my gramps is dying. Talked to my Aunt Ruth for the first time in three years or so tonight, and my brother for the first time on the phone in two years tonight. I wish it was under better circumstances. It was good to hear them both, if it was only for a short period with the former, and it was bearing tragic news to the latter.
They don't think gramps'll make it through the night, though he could last longer and suprise everyone. When I get the word, I'll be jumping in my car, heading for upstate NY. From there we'll trek to Illinois. So I might suddenly vanish for a bit.
I'm not even in the mood to post a bunch of random links.
