I wanted to say I'm sorry I've been away so long. It's been a crazy stretch of time lately.
First, our local town held a parade May 5th, where my girlfriend and I were on the planning committee. That's a full, organized parade, done in five months flat. It drained time and energy from me.
Second, we've had a sick kitty. Lucky, our little black and white, has been having breathing and stomach issues. Concern over her health and well being overrode time online. Diagnosis as of last night: She has asthma. At least now we know!
Third, life at my house has been ... unique. Parents needing transport and a room after medical procedures, me having medical issues. girlfriend having issues, hurricane damage repair, changes at my bill-paying job... Well you get the idea.
Finally, I got introduced to another writer forum that sucks your time 200 times worse than FM ever did. :> At present, I'm avoiding that site, however, as I managed to get a virus from it. I think. Still exploring that issue right now.
I'm back here to do more now, to get back to the forum that helped me.
