So that is still in the air. But it was the first time I pulled Vernon’s death certificate out of its envelope and actually looked at it. So strange to mix that in with the important paperwork like birth and marriage certificates. I’ll live with it all in one place in the house now, the main records of his life.

It’s a giant photocopy of a pigeon from an adult coloring book that my childhood dentist’s wife sent me. She also sent along a pack of colored pencils, thinking we could all have a go at coloring in this delightful bird. Long live pigeons! Thank you, Mrs. Lee. I love it.
Speaking of art, the craft fair starts tonight. Here are a few more things you can expect to find there:
Sansoxygen Coffee! Hand-roasted right here in town. I can’t wait to try some of this.
