I am indeed still alive. I spent the better portion of the long weekend visiting my parents who happen to live 900+ miles away. Because of the location of both myself and them, flying isn’t a option financiallly so my wife and I drove. Round about 13 hours straight. One way. Lots of fun. But we’re back safe and sound.
Of course the downside is that I’m extremely tired and extremely backlogged for stuff to read and do and comment on so hopefully there will be a steady string of bits and pieces that will show up here over the remainder of the week.
