Well hell.

Whiny bloggers are really boring, right?  Boring as shit.  So I’m not going to bore you.

My father has suffered an unexpected health crisis. Out of the blue. I guess that’s sort of redundant. Unexpected… Out of the blue…

We’re all doing our best to cope.

I imagine I’ll post tomorrow, but right now I feel like I’ve been punched in the gut. I may be leaving town as soon as Tuesday and I have no idea how long I’ll be gone.

In light of the coming election here in the United States, I think this movie, this particular scene, says something significant about the quality of character, the quality of a nation… doing what is right, not expedient, but right.  My father is a jurist. This is his favorite movie, the scene his favorite, the lines delivered by his favorite actor, Spencer Tracy.

    Sorry to hear about your Dad sweets. Hope it isn’t to serious and that he recovers. When you do head over there just make sure you concentrate on the road and get there safe. Keep in touch.

    I hope your dad gets better soon Julia! I’ll being praying for him and you.

  5. Thinking of you. Please, let me know if I can help. If Dan has to come out, and flies thru Portland he can leave his car to cut expenses, Or I can also get him to the Logan bus or transportation. It will save the garage expense. If his dog wouldn’t scare the hell out of my kids she could stay here as well.

    ‘kay? Steph

    Julia, I’m so sorry. I haven’t been online much in the past week, so I didn’t see this. I hope whatever happened to your father isn’t very serious. I’ll say a prayer and hope he’ll be all right soon. Take care and best wishes to you and your family.
