    • My uncle passed away this morning around 5:00am. My mom and her sisters were going to go this morning to see him. Now I'm a little mad. We just should have gone there, 3:15pm deadline or not. I can't understand how, if we got there at 3:40, they wouldn't have let my mom and aunt go in to see him for five minutes given they knew he was failing. Cousin P texted me this morning that C texted her that he passed. I told my mom that and she got annoyed that C texted P before calling her. I told my mom to let it go. I get that it's her brother and she and C have had issues about this, but it's over.

      There will be no funeral, he's supposed to be cremated. But, I was told they're bringing his body to a funeral home because they can't cremate him for 48 hours. So there's an opportunity to go pay respects at the funeral home. My mom said she and her sisters talked about it and they don't want to go. Which I don't get. I'm waiting to get the details. I'm going to ask my mom again. She said she would have a 40-day memorial service for him at church.

      Part of me feels really guilty as I was very wary of having her visit a nursing home given the pandemic. And while I wanted her to get to see him one last time, that same part of me feels a little relieved that she didn't. Am I an awful person?

      • Not awful at all. Things like this, along with the current situation, pulls all sorts of emotional strings. In the end, you are still caring for your loved ones, and hope they do what's best to keep them healthy, along with paying respects/etc in a scenario such as this one. My condolences on your loss, Scarlet.
        Never really developed a taste for tequila. Kind of hard to understand how you make a drink out of something that sharp, inhospitable. Now, bourbon is easy to understand.

        • Sorry Scarlet. That's just awful.


          Agreed with Rube. You did the right thing.

            • As I figured, the Mask Rules were followed about half the time at best at my bro's wedding. I pretty much sat at my table that had the few people I knew fairly well. It was SUPPOSED to be 2 childhood friends, but both had to back out (one volunteered to head to CA to fight the fires, the other had some health issues flare up). When the dancing/etc started, I was out. You just knew no masks were happening at that point.

                      • Patman is definitely correct, the DC Wharf eateries are overpriced, but d@mn is it convenient for me.

                            Someone breeched my credit card but they didn't process the transaction. I had called the card and they told me no, they didn't process the transaction. Then coudln't explain why no one notified me. I have 24 mo of no interest to pay off my laptop. Thinking I might close the card out. Still considering bugging out of the support part too. Spent the afternoon entertaining the policeman on the back deck, talking to the bank, talking to the CC co, talking to my major CC people. You cannot make this stuff up.
                            Wait, why were the cops involved? Normally I just have my CC company send me a new card and move on. Usually they catch it in the first or second transaction, lock the card, and give me a call. Takes five minutes and I can usually talk them into overnighting me a new card.

                            • Good morning Lodge!!

                              Sitting at ORD waiting for my flight back to Texas. Doesn't look like I'll get business class, which was the whole reason I chose this flight home (787 with most of it open)...oh, well.

                              As some of you know, my grandmother passed away on Saturday and the wake and funeral was this Wednesday and Thursday, respectively. Social distancing left a lot to be desired at the wake, but masks were required (with varying degrees of effectiveness). Funeral was limited to 150 people in a pretty large church.

                              One more week of work before furlough, unless congress can get something passed.

                                You did the right thing. If something had happened and they got sick you would have been devastated. So sorry it happened the way it did.
