What I am saying is: I haven't forgotten about you all. I just have a good deal more rewriting and editing to do before I will be able to share what I have written over the past week and change.
That being said, I want to take an opportunity to share something positive with everyone.
I learned a couple weeks ago that a couple of friends of mine have decided to buy a house. Yay them! I hope they realize that this means I will be crashing at their place whenever I am in trouble at home.
Then, just the other day I got a text from the afore mentioned friends letting me know that they had received word that construction on the place they are buying has commenced! Once again I say yay them! Oh yeah, he also mentioned that a building down the road had been blown up by a plane but since it was the IRS, who cares?
Back to the topic at hand...
Because I am a good friend, I will likely make myself available to help them move. Because I can carry a couch by myself, they will most likely take me up on it.
These truths are good and correct... Provided they butter me up on the big day with beer and pizza. (One of the very few instances when I truly enjoy beer is with pizza on moving day.)
Beer! They come in pints!?!
Equals a damned fun time on moving day. Now, I didn't load this car... But give me enough beer and I am sure I can duplicate the feat!
May-haps one fine day, I will once again own a home of my very own. When that day comes, I want it known that those closest to me will always have a place to crash should they have need. Home grown food will abound and great home cookin' will fill the air with it's sweet perfume.
Hopefully, by then, I will have found the woman who can keep me in the fashion to which I have not yet become accustomed.
Without question, the greatest invention in the history of mankind is beer. Oh, I grant you that the wheel was also a fin invention, but the wheel does not go nearly as well with pizza.
