Well, our trip to Oklahoma has taken a different turn. We came here to celebrate my parents’ 60th wedding anniversary. The day we got to Oklahoma, though, we learned that my wife’s father’s wife–who had been in the hospital for a relatively minor operation–caught an infection and just died! (Shouldn’t the hospital be liable for something like that? The reason I addressed her like I did is that they married late in life, and she really didn’t serve as my wife’s mother or step-mother. In fact, my wife introduced them!) Anyway, we’re going back and forth across the state, going from celebration to grief and back again.
As I said, I’ll be posting when I can. Thanks for those of you “jonesing” for your Cranach fix. The guest blogger idea for later is an intriguing one. I’ll be gone for a longer stretch in July, so I’ll see what I can do. (Stewart has run off and gotten married and will probably still be honeymooning, so I won’t ask him to help set that up. But I have some ideas.)
