1. My dad can talk again. YAY! Still no diagnosis. So my guess? He's been drinking like a fish for fifty years now and it's beginning to catch up with him, the beginning of the prophesied end described by his doctors, his [ex-]wives and his children for years. It's sad. Free agency + Consequences + My dad = Not pretty.
2. This blasted dial-up from H-E-Double-toothpicks! It's worse than no Internet at all. I read a post and try to comment. The connection is gone. Read an urgent email, hit reply. Helllooooo? Gone. Rest assured that I do read your posts even if all of my wise comments disappear into the void before you get read them.
3.Quote of the week: So now that your Internet is gone, do you find yourself reconnecting with your children?
4. Answer of the week: No, but I finally figured out how to play Minesweeper.
5. This Thanksgiving, I thank God for the drop in gas prices. Whew! What a blessing!
