I'm off to Chicago later today. Happily, the elves are able to keep a watch on things, so all will be well on that end. I'm not sure about how regularly I'll be posting here for the next few weeks, in large part because of all the machinations that need to be done. However, I've actually already written a bunch of things that can be posted. And I might find that writing new pieces could be a good change-of-pace.
I'll have more about my dad later. For now, this below is a song that he and my mother grew to love about 10 years ago or so. It's the closing piece of music that starting a few years back they began ending the wonderful Midnight Special radio show with on WFMT in Chicago.
