Another middle-aged habit I've developed, though I plead the needs of genealogy rather than old age, is reading the obituaries. In addition to keeping track of the losses of distant relatives, I occasionally see a familiar name from the past. This morning is was James C. Fidler.
Old-timers will remember that Jimmy Fidler was the predominant meteorologist in Austin for a couple hundred years. He passed away on April 28th.
Another icon gone.
