Sorry this posting is coming so late in the day. Today, we attended the memorial service for Sharon's father Bob; the gathering was deeply moved by the stories of his life. We returned home with Kathleen and Valerie for a pasta dinner and a family movie. Patty had a few dicey moments, nausea-wise, through the day, but was otherwise fairly energetic. Now, I'm heading back to our Tivo-ed edition of Real Time with Bill Maher, part of our required weekly viewing. I'll get back with you tomorrow.
