Oh, Snap

I woke up this morning and for the same reason as exactly two years ago my heart jumped. Juliana Bravo, the single-most optimistic human I have ever met, sent Lynn and I a voice recording. Hers is not an ordinary voice…hers are not ordinary… Continue Reading “Oh, Snap”

Sweet “Home” Alabama

Yes more-than-faithful readers, its time for the next installment of my Semi-Annual blog. I’d say, “Buckle Up”, but that would imply a vehicle’s forward movement. That has not happened for one hundred days since Lynn, Bella and I arrived in Foley, Alabama for what… Continue Reading “Sweet “Home” Alabama”

Hunkered down in a 43′ x 12′ box…Thanks for asking…How about you? It’s one thing when close friends and family (some tactfully and others not as much) remind me I have not written a blog in two months. Thanks however to John, Lynn’s ex-husband,… Continue Reading “FROM SEPTIC SHOCK TO SELF ISOLATION”

Trippin In The Desert

Hell of a ride I’ll tell ya…Hell of a ride. Two days after being released from the hospital, I finally have the energy to catch folks up with what happened. From the heart, Lynn and I so appreciate the support from so many last… Continue Reading “Trippin In The Desert”
