The Good News: It Can't Get Any Worse!
To add insult to injury, my mother-in-law passed away last week. I've just returned from Chicago where I attended her funeral on Sunday. She's pictured, above right, as she sat for our annual family portrait, this one in December 2001 (below). Yep, you counted right, she had 14 grandchildren. Claire was all about her family, and we all miss her.
So... July was a rotten month, that's why you haven't heard from me. I just didn't feel very much like writing. The good news: it can't get any worse! Thanks to all of you who wrote-in with expressions of sympathy, I truly appreciate it.
See you in August.
