Back down in Raleigh

Hey, y'all. Back down in Raleigh with the family; thanks to everyone for their kind expressions of condolences and sympathy.

Dad died very peacefully in his sleep yesterday morning.

I'm still rummaging through the family photographs, but as I drink my coffee this morning and get ready to meet the tide of incoming relatives, this is the one that's really making me smile.

Dad could fix *anything.* In this picture, circa 1973, the engineer on the left is giving the young man on the right a fundamental lesson in aeronautics.

(We're flying a kite off the deck of a beach house at Holden Beach, North Carolina.)
