A leave of absence explained

I took some time off, as you can tell. I was blogging away and life kind of got in the way.

I had some tough issues to deal with surrounding an aging family member. Lawyers, real estate agents, moving companies, the Veterans Administration, and doctors consumed all my free time. So did sorting through four decades of family photos, generations of possessions, and a dog who couldn't follow to the Assisted Living Facility.

My friends, who had gone through similar experiences, described it best when they told me, "You're going through a new door but the hallway is hell."

The room, and its occupant, are both now settled. So I find myself with time on my hands and ideas in my head.

So, log on, blog on, and write on.
