Today would have been Aunt Jean’s 87th birthday.
Her daughter called my mother, and they commiserated. Mama will probably go into the hospital tomorrow or Friday for her transfusion, and when she is released, we plan to go up to Sherman to visit with her brother and my various cousins. (Yesterday was Cousins Day!)
This means Hubby will have to drive the Hummer all by himself through Amarillo and New Mexico and the Raton Pass and to Denver. He has a full suite at one of those “homesuite” places across from the company he is taking the Hummer to for demos. He’ll be gone all week. It would have been fun to ride along. (The other families are going–there’s a company picnic on Saturday that they’re all looking forward to. Hubby is not the picnic type, but he can suffer through it.)
I know a lot of people are “through with LJ because of the downtime,” but if we look at it rationally, any DDoS attack of that strength would shut down pretty much anyone except the Pentagon. The people who are responsible are trying to end freedom of speech and expression in Russia. Shame!
I should probably get that cross-posting stuff from Dreamwidth going. Been too lazy to do much except establish a DW account. I read here and feel that it’s a great home. But maybe it’s time for that backup. Facebook just ISN’T MY BAG.
