Sorry for the silence lately - it was appropriate, because I was called out of town in order to attend my dear grandmother's funeral. I want to post a proper memorial on her, once I can figure out how to straighten out my words into what I want to say. She was amazing, as grandmothers are, and surprisingly driven, inspiring, creative, talented, goofy, and fun. I'm terribly lucky that she was part of my life and part of my blood. But until then, here's a little remnant from the drive back that my boyfriend and I experienced ... HAIL!!
