Murder Has Been Visited Upon Us

There are no easy words that flow when a family member is murdered.

It happened on Wednesday, on a warm afternoon while he was gardening in his backyard. His neighbor entered through a gate that adjoined their yards and shot him from behind, returned to his property and killed himself with the same rifle. He likely never saw or even heard it coming. He was my uncle, by marriage, a kind, gentle, easy going musician, husband, father, and grandfather.

There is no way to make sense of the senseless, an act of violence so horrific that I wake up in disbelief every morning.

This has rocked their calm, safe, idyllic neighborhood. As news gets out, tributes come in. I’ve not spoken directly to my aunt (his wife). The investigation is on-going, their home is a crime scene, and the media has descended upon it waiting for her return home. How exactly does one return home when you and your son find your husband and his father slumped over in the yard, killed doing something he enjoyed? How?

    • Fantastic! Dang I wish I could be in NY but I will just be getting home from my trip to Austin. Any excuse to get to NY! LOL. I fell in love with that city! I will have an apartment there one day, I will I will I will! You and Hannah should go! Yeah leave the teenager at home alone, right!

    • That’s not just logic. That’s really sensible.

    • 你說的情況算「æ“’」。在本系列的牌例之中,「æ“’」的定義為:1) 先手出山雞,2) 結牌者用大雞六,而且3) 大雞六跟其他武子一樣,它能否結牌,乃視乎其他牌是否更大而定。舉例:a) 先手出山雞,下家出武五,對家出大頭六,上家墊。這算「æ“’」。b) 先手出山雞,下家墊,對家出大頭六,上家出七。這不算「æ“’」,而且結牌者為打出七的玩家。c) 先手出山雞,下家出七,對家雖有大頭六,但不及七大,唯有墊牌,ç„¡å¾—æ“’,至於打出七的玩家有無得結,要視乎尾家還有沒有更大的牌。如文中所述,有些地方俗例採用了所謂「以擒為大」的規定,在此規則下,上面定義的第(3)條就變成:3')手持大雞六者,不論其他人有無更大的牌,也可擒牌結。在此別例之下,上面(b),(c) 例中,打出大頭六者均可以擒牌結。本文並不採納「以擒為大」這種規則。

    • Ronnie – Interesting to read in your article about the facts from Guiness World of Records in metric. Is this how they quote them, or have you made them the conversions yourself? The reason I ask is that I have just emailed them following a report on the BBC referring to the tallest wave to be surfed by a human being. This referred to variously in the media as being ’90 feet’ (BBC) or 30m in the Portuguese press, and 27m in the Canadian press! What a mess!

    • Naturen og stillheten er nok det aller beste her ja. Men at det er et annerledes liv, det er helt sikkert, sÃ¥ mange synes vi er bÃ¥de rare og sære Vi lever godt med det, og gjør vÃ¥rt beste for Ã¥ være litt bygdeorginaler i ny og ne i tillegg, bare sÃ¥nn for moroskyld.Ha en fin kveld du ogsÃ¥ Bibbi
