I'm taking stupid pleasure

in the fact that the week my favorite aunt, Florence, died, she got a hurricane named after her. Dreadful as this storm is, it still reminds me of my Aunt Florence, who wasn't dreadful at all. Ninety-six years old and a class act to the end.

2. Not a stupid pleasure, cyclonefence. My Great-aunt Florence died long ago,

but I think of her with great fondness. After my mother died, Aunt Florence called me every Sunday to make sure I was doing OK.

3. Think of it as not "dreadful" but mighty.

If your aunt lived until ninety-six, she had to have been mighty.
