You mean an email address you pay money for?
Do they have those?
A business I guess must have something more... elaborate than Hotmail or Inbox, so they must be available.
In my day, we didn't have virtual reality.
If a one-eyed razorback barbarian warrior was chasing you with an ax, you just had to hope you could outrun him.

Yup.
They want you to pay for an email address instead of using the free one you have, just so you can join their sight and let them teach you how to be Frugal.
Ironic, isn't it. :mrgreen:

I tried multiple times with my Comcast address and got bounce every time. I finally gave up. She does keep her blog updated (more or less).

OK. You probably think I've completely lost it leaving this story so long. Sigh. Trust me, I've tried to get back to it numerous times but sometimes you just plain can't do something you want to do. Between real life, writer's block, and numerous other excuses ... blah, blah, blah ... whine, whine, whine.

Anyway, I'm in the process of re-reading everything as we speak ... I'm up to like "January Year One" and as soon as I get everything re-read and get the character voices straight in my head I am going to finish this puppy up if it is the last flaming thing I do.

With one caveat ... my oldest is getting married the middle of this month so it may not be until after December 17th before I can actually post something. I'll try but I refuse to make another promise I wind up not being able to keep. Man this passed year has been a total bear.

Thanks for putting up with everything. Y'all are so great and I've missed the story ... but after a while I got so embarrassed at leaving it so long that it just got harder to get back to it. Life didn't help but I'm done rationalizing. I will get something posted in December.

While we're at it, crank up the BBQ grill and where the heck is that fatted calf? :mrgreen:


We missed you Kathy, but we all knew you'd come back when you could.
Congratulations on the upcoming wedding of your eldest! Try not to cry too much at at the wedding....you're not "loosing" your baby....you're seeing proof that you raised 'em right!

Thanks LowKey.

Cuffo, you can always contact me through any of the "comments" of the stories in my profile at blogspot. I have them going directly to my personal email addy. Also, I still get PMs from here when there is a notice that goes through. If I've missed anyone trying to reach me, my apologies.

YAY!!! I'm looking forward to moar! I started reading some of your other stories from your blog. Good stuff all of it. I wish I had it all in epub format so I could load it on my Iconia Tablet and read it while I'm not within WIFI. Such great stuff. I look forward to and hate the thought of the end of this story, but as they say "all good things".

Thanks Kathy.


Edit to add: Congratulations on the wedding. Meant to add it in the original post but I was to blown away by the good news of moar.

Welcome back, Kathy! Sorry your life has been difficult lately. Congratulation on the wedding of your daughter, however. That has to be a serious "up" (in spite of all the work in store for you :) ) Take care.

Hello Kathy,
I came across your story a week and a half ago, and attacked it like a rager!
I figured life and all had made it too tough to carry on, and I had decided to register today to say 'Thanks'; then I read your recent posts!!!
Thanks doesn't begin to cover it. You're going to start it up again?? Sweet!
Looking forward to it, and thanks so much for all you've done. It's been a great read.

Mother hen

glad you be to the point of finishing out the story here.

I will leave you with one final thought.

You think you be busy now, wait until you start haveing grand kids and baby sitting and shopping for cutezy cloths.

Congrates on the marriage.

Been a short trip has it not. Time flys and people just mosey along think they have all the time in the world

It takes 21 years to reach 21
but it only takes 9 years to reach 30

At thiry you are half way home

At sixty, you start moving into the fast lane to get it all done

before we are gone.

Later
wayne
