Just home from work and wanted to wish you and yours a Happy Thanksgiving TB... I for one give thanks for the great story and hours of entertainment, discussion, and introspection you’ve brought to us here by sharing it with us.

Happy Thanksgiving!

This, so much this.... Happy Thanksgiving TB! Thanks for the HOURS of entertainment. This story got me though many a boring train rides, kept me occupied when I couldn't sleep, and continues to bring joy to my life.

In this time of year for friends and family
I imagine our heroes out in the wasteland
What will Soltice time bring them?
Do they dare have a holiday plan?

I’m happy in my pre-apocalypse
I’ve many preps in good supply
But if I were asked what I’m wanting
I would give this kind reply

I don’t want a new water filter
I don’t need more ranger bands
I’ve got beans and bandaids aplenty
And a practiced bug out plan

When I think of the one thing
That I’d really like the most
I just want to scan this story
And find a brand new TB post!

***********

I wish you all, writer and readers alike,
all the happiness you can find.

Thank you for the Awsome uppdate, and for keeping this story going for us...
(I read the uppdate a while ago but didn't have time to reply)

I really think you should publish this and make some money off it..

But now it is time to feed your starving
Mooaaar-Zombies a little more story!!!!

(I'd happily send you some money for a beverage of your choice to get the inspiration flowing )

4 months TB..... 4 months. The MOAR horde is emaciated we are but shells of our former selves. We need MOAR to survive, much like the dead need flesh, we need story. I see the light at the end of the tunnel, soon sweet death shall encompass me and take me away...... Unless.... UNLESS.... MOOOOOOOAAARR

I saw the new year come in
Honored the peaceful protest slog
I saw how a shadow on the snow
Can frighten a sleepy groundhog

Driving a Tesla electric car
I saw the Starman
Heading out past Mars
Alone, but enjoying the plan

So how much longer
will my barren winter last?
I need another bit of story
To face the next icy blast.

TB hasn't been here since mid October, I've sent him a pm a while back but no response. Perhaps if everyone who reads this story would send him a pm he would get tired of getting email alerts of all the pm's he's getting. Just bombard him until he gets tired of them and comes back.
