Just a quick note to say that I haven’t forsaken this journal, but it has been a busy few days hereabouts. My brother, his wife, and their two teenage sons have been staying with me for the last few days, and it has substantially impacted my ability to do much blogging. It’s all for a good cause, though – they’re here to see their oldest son Noah (who is also my godson) up to Milwaukee. He’s about to begin his freshman year at Marquette University, where he’ll be majoring in Technical Theater. Which, of course, means that he’ll probably make a much better living in the theater business than we impractical actors will! In any case, it’s good to see them all, even if it keeps me Away From Keyboard a little more than usual!
