We chatted a few days ago on FB, he didn't mention any new health issues with his wife, but he was never the type to complain anyway. I know his granddaughter visited for the summer and she probably kept them busy enough not to miss us lot too much.
Still around! Thanks for your concern, Jay! I have just been so busy that I couldn't take time to post. But today I'm really enjoying this rain that we're getting. I hope those folks down south of us that need it so badly are getting good and wet, too!
