We had it all planned. Today would begin our first Quarterly Fundraiser for 2015.
We spent last week discussing themes and dividing labor; had it pretty well nailed down. But the situation in Europe changed all that. It’s difficult to go about business as usual while The Eternally Aggrieved are beginning their bloody payback for imaginary slights.
I’ve not seen the Baron looking this tired before. The massacre in Paris and subsequent longer-than-normal hours have taken their toll on his usual resilient self. Thus when he wondered aloud on Saturday whether we ought to postpone the Fundraiser, I quickly wrote it in stone. Frankly I was relieved he was willing to give himself a break.
Since I’d already told a few people we were to begin today it seemed best to post this notice about our change in plans.
Besides… it would hardly be good form to start when we’ve yet to manage taking down the Christmas tree.
