I'm Alive

Greetings.... to anyone who still wanders in here.

What's a six month absence between friends, huh?

Last May, the 22nd to be exact, a tornado ripped through the homestead here and leveled the place.

Fortunately I was at work and missed out on the excitement.

But.....

I was temporarily homeless, bunking with my son and his wife while this place was rebuilt. Most household items were lost/damaged. What I was able to salvage was packed away -- mostly electronics. Everything else had to be replaced.

So now I'm home and very happy to be here.

Hopefully I'll be able to get around to your blogs soon. I just wanted to post this quick little post for now.

Is that all? Holy crap! Did we know this? I'm so sorry if I missed a post about it. Thankfully, you've had a home in the interim. Please keep posting. I enjoyed your writing.

I have to say-- I was really wondering what happened to you and was hoping you'd get back to blogging!

I'm sorry to hear about the homestead because that's kind of a downer. How is work? How are you, otherwise?

Holy mother of God!! Now I feel bad for blog-stalking you there for the first few months. Thank God you're ok. Sorry about losing all your stuff, that's got to be awful.

I gotta say, though, that I'm psyched about you posting again. I'm sure there are TONS of stories stored up for us. :)

Holy cow! I'm so sorry that it happened, but very grateful you were unharmed and that you had a place to go while repairs were being made.

Thank goodness, you're alright!!!

I have missed you terribly and wondered if you would return...thank you for making my day by forgetting to wear your bra!

Welcome back.

Nice to see you back. For different (though real) reasons, I've also decided that 2011 wasn't the best of years ...
