Back soon

Out of officeThose of you who are Facebook friends know that my stepfather-in-law passed away on Monday. I had fully intended to write something philosophical and thoughtful, with perhaps a few meanderings on death, and...well, I found that I just didn’t have it in me. I’m sure something will be forthcoming eventually, but not just yet. Suffice it to say that it’s been a rough year.

In the meantime, it’s a short roadtrip to Missouri, where he and my mother-in-law retired quite a few years ago. That’s where she has decided that they will be buried. I’m taking the laptop with me, so I’ll keep in touch and try to keep up a bit, but I won’t be on a lot.

While I’m away, play nice, and carry on, citizens!


  1. Wishing you and Ken (and his mother) comfort and peace.

  2. Have a safe trip Beth and Ken,

  3. Sorry for your loss, you and Ken, and the family, are in our thoughts.
    Safe travels.

    Bob and Carlos

  4. Ken & Beth,

    I am so very sorry.
    It has been a very rough year for both of you and all my very best energy goes out to you.

    I wish there was more I could say or do.~Mary

  5. Ken and Beth... I am sorry for your loss and the both of you will be in my heart as you mourn your loss...

  6. Somehow I missed that. My new job has a no personal internet use policy, so it's been hard for me to keep up this week. Good, uplifting thoughts to both of you (and sorry if my last FB comment seemed a little flippant.)

  7. Ken and Beth.....Sorry for your loss.

    Hugs, Rose

  8. I am so sorry Beth and Ken that you are suffering so much at this time. I am sorry I have not bee commenting much lately but you of all people will I am sure understand with teh death of my dearest sister and the days/weeks prior to that...

  9. Keeping you both in my thoughts and sending good karma your way.

  10. Wishing you both strength at this difficult time. Safe journeys,


  11. As I said to Ken the other day, our thoughts are with you two. This time is always sad and unpredictable.


I'm funny how, I mean funny like I'm a clown, I amuse you?
