2017 was also a sad year…

I lost my friend Josh, who was funny and smart and a rascal, and who helped me research all things Delaware. Rainbo 2

I said goodbye to my father and wrote a tribute to him.

What will 2018 bring? We’ll have to see, and I hope we’ll share it together, either in person or virtually.

Happy New Year, my friends! May the next year bring only good things.
