Sorry about the gap in posting. I could give you all sorts of excuses and even some reasons. My dad had a mini stroke and I went up to Oxford to check on him. He is doing well and there doesn’t seem to be any long-term damage. He is 88 and with his age and my health we get a little scared when either of us has something happen. That is the reason I didn’t post yesterday. I meant to have a post ready last week to post yesterday and one for today. Here are some of the excuses I have:
No. 1 I have been sitting in front of the TV waiting on an announcement about the election of a new Pope.
No. 2 This whole sequester mess has me so rattled that I have sequestered myself in my man-cave and refuse to be productive until the president and congress start doing their job.
No. 3 I have been sitting for hours staring at the TV practicing for the NCAA Basketball Tournament. (My longest stretch is 4 hours without a bathroom break. Not bad for an old dude on 2 types of fluid pills.)
No. 4 Molly ate the rough drafts of some comics I was drawing. (The old “Dog ate my homework” excuse is still good for some things.
No. 5 The last post was up for about a week and I only received 2 comments and I have been delusional from beating my head against the wall.
No. 6 My wife has had allergies and bronchitis for about a month and I have been having sympathy symptoms that render me unable to do anything.
No. 7 I have been waiting in line at the Fast Checkout in Wal-Mart behind a lady with two carts full of groceries.
No. 8 I have been having some memory problems and I keep repeating myself.
No. 9 I have been having some memory problems and I keep repeating myself.
No. 10 Either none of the above or all of the above. Please feel free to use any of these excuses and if you can provide me with others for the future I would appreciate it.
