i've had an epiphany.
eF and i have seen each other 3 times this summer. the deaths of ed mcmahon, billy mays, farrah fawcett, michael jackson, walter cronkite, and john hughes all occurred either before or during our travels.
clearly, we are somehow linked to THE SUMMER OF DEATH.
(and no, eunice has not died but it seems you are all awaiting an acknowledgement. there it is.)
