On New Years Day I drove my dad back to Connecticut. Not to his house, because he can't live in it due to the smoke damage. I brought him to a hotel, where they were packing up the lobby's Xmas decorations. I couldn't drive back with that image in my head, so we went to the 99 and had a beer and a melancholy conversation.


Alexis and I both had Monday off, so got to spend the day together, playing with the dogs and such.


Back to work on Tuesday, looking out the office window at three.

It looks to have been a lovely vacation. How's your dad now? That's terrible what happened with his car; can his place be made habitable again? Does insurance cover any of that? I know you were worried about him - I looked forward in the posts but didn't see the update if there was one, so I hope no news is good news.

Dad is surprisingly serene given the circumstances. His place will be fixed up, and hopefully insurance will cover more of it. He may be out of his house for 6 months.

Oh that's good! But 6 months?! Is he staying with friends?
