I figured I better get on here before people think I am dead. I've been out of town, then back to the mountains, and dealing with some logistical issues that have needed taking care of. Nothing but the dreary details of life that none of us escape. Put some "on hold" music on above, one of my favorite pieces of smooth jazz.
Here's the cartoons I missed this week from Branco.
I have gotten a lot of good emails from folks, and I am really sorry it's taking me so long to answer them. The only thing I take computer wise with me when I travel is my Kindle, and it's just not set up for emails. You have to peck out each word with a stylus.
Things are just about back to normal here though. M is back and is feeling much better, though it will be awhile before she is rested up enough to feel "normal." Rufus is beside himself with joy that M is home again, and won't leave her side. His little bed has been moved into her bedroom so he can sleep right there next to her. I guess the little guy lived with an old lady all his life, and feels more comfortable with M than with me.
Everything up here on the mountain is great. Maintenance is under control. The weather is excellent, low humidity and up into the low seventies. The kids are all settled in their nice new place in Nashville. I do see some really scary people walking around in town now that the "subsidized apartments" are in full operation. But I don't let it bother me. Instead of a rustic, quiet place our town looks like Barter Town from Mad Max now, but it is what it is. I swear, I saw two guys walking down the main street today that would not have stuck out in the Barter Town scene below.
Be back up with a proper post tomorrow. Hope everybody is holding the line, where ever they are.
