My mother died last night. Not much else to say.

I will be traveling today, so if I don’t get around to replying to comments in a timely fashion you know why. It’s going to be a busy couple of days for me.

Wordle: five, my starter was SINCE
Connections: perfect, Green > Yellow > Blue > Purple

    Oh, Paulie!

    Rarely am I at a loss for words. I pray for your peace.

    Please keep us posted on the arrangements.


    • Thanks, Steve. I will wind up being two days late as I intended to drive down tomorrow for a weekend visit. I don’t know what to expect when I get down there, but I will find out then.

    I’m so sorry for your loss, Paulie. In the coming days holler if you need help with anything or just need to sit and have a beer with someone.

  4. Sally says:

    Well crap Paulie! I am so sorry. I am at a loss for words too! Let me know if there is anything I can do to help. Hang in there. We all love you man!!

  5. Barb says:

    Have a safe drive, hope you can get “whatever” done down in FL without too much craziness.

  6. Bob says:

    So sorry Paulie!
    Safe travels down to FL.

    I’m available if you need to bend an ear, hang in there man.

  7. Jenka says:

    Oh, Paulie, I am so sorry! My deepest condolences. Please let me know if I can help you in any way while you’re dealing with this.

  8. Barb says:

    Green – yellow – then fail.
    Wordle in 5- my guesses weren’t bad, and never a letter in the wrong spot.

  9. Sally says:

    Wordle in 5 starting with MONEY. Just couldn’t get that 4th letter…too many options.
    Connections with 2 mistakes in order, green, yellow, blue, purple. Obviously I didn’t get purple…it was just the last 4 left.

    • Jenka says:

      I got Connections in the same order with one mistake. One of them was an obvious red herring!

      • David says:

        Fuck that stupid Conniptions shit. Wordle in 5, it was a roulette day. I had three correct letters in 2, and it took three more passes to close the gaps.

  10. Debbie says:

    I’m so sorry Paulie. It’s a loss like no other. I’ll be thinking of you.

  11. Steve says:

    Wordle in 4, Conniptions fail! I fell for the red herring.

    At Auburn vet school for Phinneys lameness issues. The lead vet introduced himself to me and as I shook his hand, I said “Roll Tide”. He didnt miss a beat, saying, “Sure, we can double the bill. I liked him immediately.

  12. In an effort to keep this as normal as possible I have stopped at the Mexican restaurant south of Valdosta at which I have eaten on many Florida trips.

    So sorry to hear about your mom. Love coming from Greensboro.

  14. Barb says:

    Landed in San Jose. No one in the middle seat, so nice to have the extra room.
    Now to get our bag, get a car & see where our adventures take us.

  15. Barb says:

    Found a crazy little Mexican taqueria for lunch.

    We are now stuck in crazy traffic in the UC Santa Cruz campus.
    This place is a lovely hilly campus, with no road options. Some protest has an intersection area shut down & the town is at a standstill.
    But- Allan got his Banana Slug T-shirt – so he’s happy.

    Hello to all the ITP readers in ATL, I have not missed a day reading this blog. Please take care of WLB during this unpleasant time, he was so supportive during my divorce. You guys better have his back.
    Love from Greensboro.

  17. Stacy says:

    I am really sorry to hear this news Paulie. Keeping you and your family in my thoughts and wishing you as much comfort and peace as possible at this time.
