Holy crap! My mother-in-law has DSL! Sure, it's the clunkiest DSL I've ever seen, but I'll take it over the 17K dial-up I normally get here.
My time here at the computer is limited, so I'll keep this short. Today we went to one of the places where Hank spent many happy times with her family when she was a kid. We brought some of Hank's father's ashes and spread them throughout the gardens and theatrical areas. Hank, her sister, a family friend, and Daisy all pitched in, grabbing handfuls of ashes and spreading them around.
It was a bit surreal seeing Daisy cavalierly toss the ashes. Afterwards, she enthusiastically remarked, "I LOVE spreading ashes!". I suppose it's good that she didn't quite internalize the gravity of the situation.
In other news, Vermonters are freakin' bonkers for their maple syrup.
