While you're waiting for the hammer to fall

So everybody's here that's going to be here, it seems. Picked up jamestrainor at Reagan National after a misunderstanding about whether P or myself or a player to be named later was going to take care of that little errand. Anyway, I got him over to Fox Way in time to meet Carlos on the way out of Forest Heights and give him the heads-up. Going over there after I finish this up to talk about the eulogy, which pretty much came to me in a flash this morning and is now waiting to be fleshed out into a three-minute talk.

My mom's sisters also made it in and are now settled in the guest housing at Bolling AFB after some misadventures on 395 and the G.W. Parkway, so that's one less thing to worry about. I'd thought they were coming in yesterday but I guess I thought wrong.

There's some interesting political stuff out there but I have to deal with eternity this evening, so it'll have to wait.
