The dog ate my homework.

Actually, the reasons my posts on book/daddy were so few and so slim this past week were 1) I had the flu (still recovering from it, truth be told), 2) I had to finish a grant proposal for a friend (and missed the deadline anyway) and 3) my father-in-law, Bernie Shub, died. His family and friends had an appropriately loving and funny send-off for him at the Rolling Hills Country Club in Arlington. A memorial service at a golf course was perfectly fitting: He owned and ran the pro shop there.
