Friday, August 26, 2016. New posts below, but before scrolling down. Please read:As you probably know by now, the "family emergency" I referred to the other day is the death of Mrs M's dad. As I wrote, it was sudden but not really a surprise, considering all he'd been through. But we weren't prepared, emotionally---whoever is?---but also financially. We didn't have money set aside for a trip to Philadelphia or for the many expenses that crop up when you're getting ready for a funeral. For instance, neither Ken nor Oliver owns a good pair of dress shoes. Coming on top of the medical bills and with the new college year starting next week, we're in a tough bind. So, please, if you like what goes on around here and you can swing it, this would be a very good time to consider making a donation. It would be a big help and much appreciated.
Thank you to all of you who've donated already. You're really helped save the day. And thanks to all for reading the blog.
