I read Rhys Ford's story in the Grand Adventures anthology. It gave a little background of who Rook's cousin Alex was, but nothing I thought was vitally important as far as reading the books featuring Rook.
Mom and I went to a little grocery store, then our usual grocery store. We saw Z. It was a productive trip.
We went to the exercise club. It was our last day. I went into the covered-over outdoor pool for a bit, but it was cold. Mom went in a few times, and stayed in longer when she was in there, and swum some laps. I texted various people. J. said he'd get back to us later tonight or tomorrow, and that he had an appointment with the doctor tomorrow to see how his recovery from gallbladder removal was going.
We called Mom's stepmother H. She lives near West Palm Beach. She said her place was very lucky, and only lost power for a night, no damage to the buildings. She sounded very weak. She said she had various illnesses, and told Mom she had C. diff. H. said that Mom's half-sister and her family were okay. Aunt E. lives in Boca Raton.
