First, Larkin is back from a week-long hiatus. You can catch his latest effort here.
And on a sad note, our colleague Paul Hooson will be taking some time off from blogging. Paul's father passed away last Tuesday following an extended illness. Our thoughts and prayers are with him in this very sad time.
Paul has posted a touching tribute to his father on his Progressive Values website, linked here.
On Tuesday at about 1pm at our home, I faced something that I hoped I would never witness, the death of my father from an apparent severe stroke. After months of illness for unrelated colon illness, my father simply became very weak in the last few days and got up out of bed and died in the bathroom. Life has been very difficult caring for him recently due to all of his health needs which were nothing like his strong and hardworking nature all through his life. There was never a lazy bone in his body.
