I spoke to dad a couple of days ago. He said that one of my brothers mentioned that the blog is coming off as a bit stilted, with some grammatical errors.
I just want to remind everyone that this blog is being called in by voice, which is then translates to text by an Iphone app. What I do is listen to the message and edit the words as they were spoken. Until now, I have basically not edited anything beyond that.
Dad is a great writer, very intelligent and thoughtful, but he also likes to use colloquialisms and sometimes speech patterns that reflect common spoken language. Please enjoy the words as they are spoken.
