I have spent the time normally allocated to blogging this morning in reading and writing comments on others' blogs, attending a tattoo party given to me by my children, and reading up on some local news. I've been getting the place ready to receive my esteemed visitors (sis and bro-in-law) later this afternoon. Also I learned that my elderly grandfather is very ill and in the hospital again.
I'm a little distracted, in other words. More to come later today I hope.
