Been a Long Time

Yep, it’s been a long time. Too much to catch up on so let’s just say I’m back. Let’s just touch on a few highs and lows.

I was in Texas part of the winter. For a number of reasons I didn’t want most people to know my house was unoccupied. That only explains part of my silence.

Some of it was just a matter of being busy with my own business. Stuff happens. Other times I’m making stuff happen.

Like most people I’ve been watching the war in Ukraine. Russia cannot win this. They could destroy the country and call it victory, but they can’t win.

People are freaking out about gas prices. As an old guy who got his driver’s license in the 70s, this feels really familiar. Looks like my 100 mpg scooter will be doing a lot of errands. Just got a new tire for it before tire prices go through the roof. Anything made from petroleum is going up.

So it’s interesting times. Throw another bag of rice on the pile. Keep your iodide pills nearby and your powder dry.

Don’t forget to have some good times too as there’s more to life than just having a heartbeat.

My lovely wife and I are doing fine. We had a bout of covid. For us it was like a very mild cold, but we are vaxxed to the max. I was pretty ticked off because we were staying with relatives who needed our help but would not take basic precautions. One person in the household had a very bad time indeed but recovered.

Unfortunately we lost Brownie the Sailor Dog before Christmas. The poor old girl had a ruptured spleen and died from internal bleeding. It was unexpected. She was a very good dog and there’s a hole in our hearts.

Anyway, be well.

    1. Thank you. Looks like blogging might be fun again.

  2. I just figured that Sixbears in the Woods was doing what Sixbears does in the woods & would show up when he was done. Welcome back. Sorry about Sailor Dog.

    1. Thanks. We are going to miss that old pup. She was good one.

  3. Good to hear you are doing as well as can be expected with all the crazy going on. Keep being you.

    1. Thank you. I don't know how to be anyone else.

  4. Can't remember if we too , had acquired the covid bug when we talked via email. It was not fun but we both survived , although I fear the cough is permanent...
    Trying to figure out how to stuff more in our tiny house...

    1. Yeah, you had let me know. Sorry to hear about the cough. We seem to have recovered well, but who can say?

      Wouldn't it be nice to have a longer break between horsemen of the apocalypse?
