Just learned that my step-brother in Mississippi has terminal cancer, and is only expected to live for 3-4 days.

 

We will be heading out in just a few minutes.

 

This is one road trip that I damned sure damn not looking forward to.

David, when I read the title, I was hoping you were being sarcastic, and I am sorry to hear it is not the case.  I hope & pray you get there in time, but do be careful while driving, as you've got a lot on your mind.

That's terrible news.  So sorry to hear it.  Be careful on your trip down and prayers sent for all involved.  I never got to actually meet you at plow day last fall and was hoping to do so this year.  Perhaps next time.
