Just saw my dad, siblings and their spouses off on their way back to FL. I head back to MD in a little while myself. It was very good to see all of them these past few days, as well as so many family friends and relatives even if the occasion was sad.

An evening well spent with my dad and my siblings and siblings-in-law swapping stories and fond remembrances over excellent food and drink.

Rose early this morning to get a walk in, pack and then head to Union Station. Ensconced in a comfy seat from here until Connecticut.

Slowly dissolving into a 750 of dark barley wine from my cellar while enjoying a marathon of Miss Fisher with the family. Happy New Year, everyone.
