Life, death & everything in between

On the 31st of March, 2019, my aunt, Lenora Rose Conwell, passed away after battling cancer for two years, outliving the doctors’ guess by a factor of 4. It was wonderful to get to spend that extra time with her


Several weeks were spent helping my cousins and the rest of the family came together and supported each other; all things considered, it was nice.

Then, my 1986 Toyota 4Runner needed some major work. I’ve never dealt with IFS (which I found to mean “Independent Front Suspension”), so it was a learning curve. I ended up replacing most of the front end, and still have the idler and Pittman arms to install.

Then, one of the best days I’ve had in my life happened: I got to take my niece out on an Uncle-Niece Dance Date!
