OOC VI:  A Thread To Be Named Later
Brand spanking new OOC thread.  Naming contest is still open, as I am awaiting one more response to the latest survey <cough>Euron/Amhairghin</cough>.

Oh, I forgot to mention this bit of possible hilarity I'm looking forward to at the funeral.  (Tonight and tomorrow night are visitation and services.)  My mother has gout and arthritis in her left ankle that has her hobbling around as well.  My sister, who had the car accident last year and lost part of her cerebellum, also has balance issues and walks slowly as a result, and does not do well on uneven surfaces.  My father has had spinal surgery and has Parkinson's.

And my grandfather is being buried at a small family cemetery behind his house.

On the side of a hill.

Up a muddy slope.

I keep envisioning all of us going down like dominoes.

Though my sister will likely not even attempt the climb.

Knee is better and scrapes are healing.  Ankle does everything it can to presage future osteoarthritis.

The gift that just keeps on giving, lass.  Like jelly-of-the-month.

  My sympathies on your loss.  It is always hard to lose a loved one, even when they've lived a long full life.  Will keep you and your family in my prayers...

Re: OOC VI:  A Thread To Be Named Later
I'm back from Kentucky, where there was much sermonizing, two family funerals, homemade buttermilk biscuits and sausage gravy (nom nom nom), some crying, lots of food, lots of seeing people I haven't seen since I was back for my grandmother's funeral almost exactly 8 years ago, some great stories (a few of which I managed to actually record), collection of many many old family photographs, and 22 hours round-trip of driving through some beautiful fall foliage from Pennsylvania through Maryland and West Virginia and into Kentucky and back again.

Am going to try to hit the longest-languishing threads now (Jonathan and Valan), and aim to move through the others tomorrow.
