I talked to Mom today. While she is feeling a little better, her health still isn't what it should be and she could use some help getting things done around the house. I've decided that when Miss V finishes up the school year (about midweek), we'll pack up and drive out to Utah and I'll see what I can do to make myself useful.
This means poor Captain Midnight will be stranded for a while without car or wife. (I have suggested he might want to rent a car while I'm gone. I have not suggested that he rent a wife.)
