Goodness! I'm very glad that Penelope was returned to you safe and sound, Diane!

I've missed a lot in the last few weeks.

Worst thing that's happened here recently was finding out the iPad we bought for one of our autistic sons had been stolen...from a school. We've returned it to them. It was very upsetting to learn that. Not every day I get a phone call from the police in FL.

Some woman I 'knew' through another forum telling me I can't be interested in politics and a Christian at the same time. She said she was helping me. I have nothing against her but this message of hers made me feel second-rate as most of her messages and advice do. This is the last time I will speak with her and the last time I will ask for her advice. I think being interested in history led to an inevitable interest in politics. To each his own and live and let live.

The day started off so nicely, yet now I feel sad for no real reason whatsoever!
Don't walk in front of me; I may not follow.
Don't walk behind me; I may not lead.
Just walk beside me and be my friend.

Well, I guess I just fell out of the loop really!
It occurred to me earlier on this evening that I'd like to belong to a forum again, which reminded me that I'd been a member here and so, voila! here I am =)

Thanks to all of you for your good Penelope wishes. She and I spent Presidents' Day at home with Gossamer, and I got some revisions done on a ghost story my writing group decided to set up as an exercise for ourselves. I also spent time responding to an interrogatory from an attorney. Pleh. But yay for a short week at work!
