Family Business

I'm in Yuba City today, having come down here last night. I have some business that has to be transacted at the actual bank where I have my account (I'm closing a safe deposit box that I no longer use before the box renews for another year). Then I head home via Dobbins to visit my mother for a short time before rushing home in time, I hope, to attend a Worldcon 76 division heads meeting.

Despite not setting an alarm and being up rather late (by my standards) last night, I woke up only about an hour later than usual. But that means I get to watch the conclusion of the Wimbledon Djokovic-Nadal tennis semi-final suspended by curfew last night. I might be able to see the women's final as well if this first match doesn't go like the marathon yesterday. (What is it about Isner and marathon Wimbledon matches?)
