URGENT PLEA: Following Paul's latest health scare, my two youngest children in California are desperately trying
to find a way to get home to see their father one last time before it grows too late.
They have raised over half the cost, but are falling short and time is of the essence.
If you are able to contribute any amount, no matter how great or small, our family would be eternally grateful. Thank you so much.

So sorry to hear about Paul's health problems. Why don't you just forget about the missing issues. You do plenty as it is.
Love Cuz Pam
Thank you, Cousin Pam! That certainly would seem to be the logical thing to do, but focusing and keeping a strict routine actually seems to be helping me cope with the issues facing us. Besides, when was the last time you noticed me behaving logically?
