Fred

Not entirely out of the woods, but I have to link to this NPR story about my Great-Uncle Fred. Fred was great. When I got married, my cousins gave me a blender. My parents gave me a washing machine. Fred gave me the complete sonnets of Shakespeare. By his lights, it was a household essential.

Listen, don't read.

I see him fitting into your family tree so perfectly. I am so jealous you get to be related to him.

I heard that the day it was broadcast. You're related to him? Freaking awesome.

In other news, I am thinking about you and hoping that your life allows for regular posts again soon. Miss you.
