How rude!



How rude, to just disappear for so many moons with no explanation.

In the beginning, I didn't realize it would be so long. I intended to start back several times, but somehow my good intentions kept getting foiled. (Evil forces, no doubt.)

Listlessness, lassitude, lethargy. Laziness! And also a bit of a detour towards a genealogical addiction.

I know, those dead relatives aren't really going anywhere. But with the living ones, well you never know. Got to prise all those deep dark family secrets out of them while they're still around. Got to motivate them to dig in the closet for those old portraits, before they're sold for a song at the estate sale (since nobody has a clue who those old moldy dudes are anymore).

Anyway. Sorry for the long absence. Hope you'll forgive me.

Nice to see you back, karen! Looking forward to the news and views from your neck of the woods.

Well, hey, you could share some of yor juicy dead-relative stories here! (Names changed to protect the guilt, of course.) Good to hear from you again in any case.

It may be too late for my brain to disassociate a cartoon stink bug with some unnamed tragedy. One cannot live on "niches" alone. I require balance. Welcome back.

Going on genealogical benders is sometimes the only way that works.

We'd forgive you anything because we missed you, Rurality...and it's in our own self-interests not to squawk. Any one of us might need to temporarily disappear and then return.

It's good to read your posts.

Welcome back. Pull up a keyboard, grab a cup of joe, light a cigar, and stay a while. We can change the world one bird pic at a time.
