An Apology and An Announcement
I have am apology to make to the followers and the readers of these blogs, and then an announcement to make.
A very important announcement. At least it is to me, anyway.
First, I would like to apologize for the very erratic blog postings over the last couple of weeks or so. The telephone company has sold out to another company (a telephone co-op we've been told), and the DSL internet had become very spotty. Sometimes not working at all, especially if there was a thunderstorm. So, my landlady has switched the internet service to the cable company, and they still don’t have it quite right yet. I am getting my internet service (with her permission) via her wireless router.
I can’t complain since it is free to me, but still it’s annoying that it is still intermittent.
Now for the announcement, and the primary reason I have not posted as regularly.
The reason was, and is, a brand new baby girl born on June 19. Her name is Skylar Riley, and she is brand new first child to my “daughter” Jackie and her husband Todd Ray.
Jackie is the beautiful young woman whom I worked with at my previous job. She has never had a father in her life, and for some reason that I can’t explain, she became very attached to me, and decided that it is her duty to take care of me.
When Jackie found out that she was pregnant, she said “Steve, you are going to have to help me raise this kid, or I will have to hurt you”.
So what else could I do?
I am now a grandpa by proxy (she didn't have to exactly twist my arm), and I am very happy about it.
So there you have it. An apology and an announcement.
I love the announcement best.
