Sad news and travel update

So, the only way I can keep up with this site is to write my posts in advance and program them to drop throughout the week. That includes my most recent post today about Saint Louis.

Unfortunately, since I wrote this we learned that my uncle, William Marion Smith of Barnhart, Missouri, passed away yesterday at the age of 89. Funeral arrangements have been made at the Kutis Funeral Home in Lemay for this coming Friday.

While professional commitments, family obligations, and (most recently) health problems in California have too often kept me from attending family funerals during the last several years, I do plan on attending this one.

If anyone needs any more information or needs to get in touch with me, please send me an email or get a hold of me through my contact page.

I am still planning on retrieving the aforementioned documents, but I will post about them probably next week sometime. In the meantime, if anyone would like to write a guest blog for Friday, please let me know and I will upload it. And please come back on Wednesday to read the latest post in my month-by-month series leading up to the Pearl Harbor attack. We’re up to August now…

Anyway, thanks for your understanding, and have a great week.
