Okay, dear reader, I'm back. Although who knows when you will check back after my extended vacation from this blog. I don't blame you, but the holidays and the interregnum between the election and the inauguration just caused me to go into suspended animation.
All kidding aside, one reason I haven't been back on sooner is that my dear mother died a week ago in Erie, PA. More about her in the next post.
But it's good to be with you again.
