The couch in here is much too comfortable. It is taunting me even now.
I will be playing the MATH in a bit though. Can't let work get in the way of poker.
Little brother and Dad are in France on a four day trip. Today is Memorial Day. Thank you Uncle John Lloyd. The youngest of seven, my father was born in 1929. John Lloyd was the closest brother in age to Dad. He volunteered for the airborne and broke his leg parachuting into Sicily. As his unit was not scheduled to jump into Normandy, he volunteered for a transfer. Dad last saw him a few months before D-Day when he was able to come back to Florence on leave. This is Dad's first trip to his brother's burial site.
