I finished the rewrite and submitted it, so that's the primary reason I haven't been blogging much lately. Now the waiting begins again.
The other reason I didn't get around to blogging is because a brother-in-law became terribly ill and was taken, unconscious to the hospital three days ago. He passed away late yesterday afternoon. It's hard to lose someone who shares so many memories, and who has been 'family' for so many years. He was a diabetic who lost his fight with a sneaky illness.
There was a little matter too of a grandson qualifying for the District wrestling tournament in his weight. Of course I had to go watch it. He went three rounds and did a great job for his first year competing in the sport.
I'm not going to promise to do better. It seems that each time I think my life is going to settle down a bit, a new crisis arrives. Anyway I just finished reading a really fun Western and had planned to include a review in my next blog. Maybe next time. The current contest goes until noon Monday, but because I'll be involved with family and the funeral, I may be a little slow announcing the results, but I'll try to do it Monday afternoon.
