On the eighty-seventh day of the year, I explained how I had been away from home twenty-four nights. On this, the one hundred fiftieth day of the year (hello, fellow 365ers!), I am reporting that that number has risen to fifty (I hit it a week ago). I am booking seven more days away, my monthly trip south, this time to help out my recently widowed mother.

One third of my days away this year. And no real vacation in sight.

I have been to so many memorials of late that when I received a work e-mail with the subject line “Sprinkler Service June 5,” I immediately wondered Who’s Sprinkler?, and would I have to find room in the summer issue of the journal for his obituary?

It is, of course, an annual inspection of the system.
