~Funeral = Abbreviated Issue~
We've had to leave town on a moment's notice for a funeral. See News From the Home Office for more information. Since we're on the road, this issue will be abbreviated. We're including extra markets to keep you busy. Please, oh pretty please, don't send me any condolence emails. I'm already swamped!
