T has tilled our garden space once, early this past week. Since then, we've been busy or it's rained. It was supposed to rain yesterday - but it didn't - and, as it was, other things kept T from getting out there anyway. But guess was it was doing at 4:43am today? Raining! A lot! The sun was shining when I got up at 8am, but ... the clouds are moving back in. *sigh*
The clouds & rain are rather apropos anyway ... Yesterday morning we got a phone call that one of T's best friends, a man he's known since high school, was in a local hospital in critical condition, he'd been in an accident. T went to the hospital, only to find out our friend had just passed. M went to school with T's older sister, then when they were all on their 'southeast vacation' (in Vietnam), the 2 of them & 3 other guys from their neighborhood all happened upon one another. Of the 5, my T is now the last surviving man.
Last night, another of T's friends called to let us know his mother, too, had passed away yesterday. She'd been very ill & it was not unexpected, but, still ...
And we've all heard of deaths coming in 3's, so of course we were wondering who else ... then this morning's paper reported the death of the ex-husband of one of my mom's best friends, the father of my grade/high school best friend.
To top it all off, I received a jury duty summons yesterday. *sigh* I'm not adverse to doing my civic duty, but it asks I report at a time that's not good with my work schedule, so we'll see what happens.
Yep, a day that won't soon be forgotten....
On a good note for the day, K & I went to the scrapbooking expo yesterday morning - and I got to meet Wendy Vecchi of Studio 490! I acted like a total geek (OMG! You're Wendy!!)! I did get my picture taken with her, so I'll share that & a few other photos later.
If you are so inclined, please add my T to your prayers or whatever ... this is going to be a hard week for him. Thank you.
