OK, Y'all I'm Back

Hello, everyone. I'm back. A little worse for wear, but I'm back. To let everyone why I haven't been around for a while is because my 2-story house is now, for all intents and purposes, a 1-story. On September 1st a bolt of lightning took care of my worries about our plans for renovating the second story of my old Victorian home. (It's really a Queen Anne but everyone calls it Victorian.)

The good news is that the insurance company is collaborating with the historical society to rebuild the damage to bring the house back to its original splendor. (I can't wait until one of the carpenters tries to drive a nail into the original beams. LOL) I did lose some fish in the basement fishroom as well as the majority of my electrical/electronic gadgets. The Bottom tier of tanks in the basement became submerged with the water from fighting the fire. The Victorians, and all of the rarer fish, survived, miraculously.

I'm just glad to be back, although it may be rather sporadic for a while.

Sorry to hear about that Bob! Hope your fish loss wasn't too bad, and that you get your house back to normal ASAP.

Glad to have you back with us however!

I'm ready for the pressure.
The drama and the pleasure!
If there is one thing I want to see here, it's HUMOR.
I believe I can fly!
I believe I can touch the sky!
I think about it every night and day!
I stand in awe of my body.
