Last night I drove from Cedar Rapids back to Lawrence. Tonight Jeri and the kids and I will travel back to Des Moines, spend the night, then head to Cedar Rapids on Friday. My grandmother's funeral is Saturday, and we will be back home on Sunday night.
I hope to be back to a normal schedule on Monday. I'd like to thank everyone for being patient over the last few weeks as the book crunch and then family issues have had to take precedence. I particularly want to thank subscribers of the John Sickels Baseball Newsletter for being so patient. The 2005 subscriptions will NOT expire until I get you everything I'm supposed to get you.
And of course, thanks for all the warm thoughts and prayers over the last few days. They are very much appreciated.
