Being back

Goodness. No post in over a week. Since I've been blogging for real, I think that's been the longest gap.

Mostly, I was in Texas. My father turned 80 on Tuesday, and my family had a little celebration for him over the weekend. I just returned late yesterday late in the afternoon.

But, unexpectedly, I flew there. C. and I were going to drive down, but C's 98-year-old grandmother died last week, and the funeral was Saturday. We tried to come up with a way to make it possible for both of us to be at the funeral *and* the birthday celebration, but it just wasn't working out. So he took the bus to Michigan, and I flew to Texas.

And, just for the record, C. says he'll never take Greyhound again. Too much waiting around in sad bus stations. Too much time sitting.

Another way people who aren't rich get constrained in space and time.

Not that my day was without lots of sitting and waiting, but at least I had more choices (for the most part) for where to walk, sit, buy coffee.

At any rate, we're both back, so more, better blogging soon.

I know I didn't wait around as long as you, but I thought it was fun. At least I was able to miss some work...well, I wouldn't say I MISSED it. Anyway, I'm glad you were able to come down this weekend.
