Where I’m At

Sorry to you all for abandoning you for almost 2 weeks.

As always, it was never my intention. Real life unfortunately reared up and kicked us right in the hinder last week.

My Father In Law, who was one of the best people I ever had the pleasure of knowing, lost his two year battle with cancer last week.

He was a good man, and a noble spirit. He had more responsibilities on his broad shoulders than most people could handle in a lifetime, and he carried those responsibilities for years without ever uttering one word of protest or regret. Those of you who know me know to which I speak.

I had the honor of calling him my father in law, as well as my friend, and I will miss him.

To all you kind soles who sent us your well-wishes through Facebook, phone, or in person, we thank you wholeheartedly.

Anyway, that’s it for now. I’ll get myself back on an even keel blogwise next week, when I will hopefully have the time to resume posting, and reading, all your fine words.
