Here we are in South Bend, Indiana. Tomorrow was supposed to be the beginning of our European vacation, but extremely sadly we learned my wife’s mom passed away on the 13th. So instead it’s been a trillion flights, not enough sleep, too much time with funeral directors, some major ransacking of a full but empty house, and beers and carnitas with beloved family. We belatedly begin the European vacation early Saturday, and that will be more than enough after a funeral and an interment. Most earned vacation EVER.
