Finals Week Day 4

A long, long day: at work before seven for an extra-early-morning "final exam" (a class presenting their final project reports; we elected to meet early to ensure that we'd get out on time as many of them had a difficult theory exam later this morning), lots of individual student appointments for their project presentations (and as the deadline approaches the panic becomes more apparent and the plagiarism more blatant), the final at the evening Astronomy class, and then (sadly) to a funeral home south of the metro to visit family for a while (a loved great-aunt passed away a few days ago). So Southern Man will be home at eleven or so this evening and will no doubt pour himself a drink and ponder mortality, both his own and that of his loved ones. Lord, you promised us our days would be three score and ten but we can never know what time we have. Please grant us the wisdom to use that time well. Amen.

I'm sorry about your aunt, also. No, we don't know how long we have. I just found out a friend had a brain anurism and was flown out of state for surgury.
