No posts for a bit.

Two nights ago, my dad had what we think was a stroke in his sleep. He passed away today around six in the evening. I managed to get into town and say goodbye first, and I'm glad he's not suffering any longer.

I'll be in Ohio for the rest of the week, posting will likely be erratic for a while.
