I know I've been quiet again.
It's that dark season...
But don't worry.
I'm not dead.
The plane that crashed in Montgomery County, which is indeed my county, went down at the other end of said county and not on my little brick box of a house. We're all safe and in one piece. In fact, I'm out of town, visiting my aged dad up in Boston, and only learned of the crash through a Facebook post from a friend who lives closer to the site.
We return now to our regularly scheduled silence.
