I am sad to say that my good friend Edmund passed away on Sunday. I mentioned this likelihood on Sept. 13 in a post, and I am taking a few days away to deal with much here at the homestead. Many of you have already expressed much fine and good thoughts and I am most grateful for your concerns.
When I have enough presence of mind to resume here, I shall.
So stay tuned. And thanks for your consideration and patience and warm regards.
