“May have been the losing side. Still not convinced it was the wrong one.”

"This report is maybe 12-years-old. Parliament buried it, and it stayed buried till River dug it up. This is what they feared she knew. And they were right to fear because there's a whole universe of folk who are gonna know it, too. They're gonna see it. Somebody has to speak for these people. You all got on this boat for different reasons, but you all come to the same place. So now I'm asking more of you than I have before. Maybe all. Sure as I know anything I know this, they will try again. Maybe on another world, maybe on this very ground swept clean. A year from now, 10, they'll swing back to the belief that they can make people . . . better. And I do not hold to that. So no more running. I aim to misbehave." ~ Captain Malcom Reynolds

Just some bits...

- Still a work in progress, but I'm ok. Good days & bad but overall I'm in a better place than a few months ago.

- Finally took a couple of afternoons this week and did some serious yardwork I've been neglecting for years. Trimmed trees and bushes, raked up old crap and all that - and that's just the front yard. Now to slowly tackle the back.

- While "grilling season" never really ends here, with the warmer weather it has become more frequent and also involves letting the kids eat outside on the repaired picnic table as well as marshmallow roasts. To say they are happy is a big understatement.

- Have a birthday coming up this week - not sure yet what I think about that. But at least I made it another year.

Anyway, still alive here. Maybe have something to write soon but felt it needed an update.

I, for one, think that another trip around the sun is a wonderful thing to celebrate! Especially given the year it's been.

Glad things are at least going... And happy birthday when ever it occurs! Know the getting 'old' feeling, but I've got you by a few years... Hang in there Sir!

Happy Birthday! Take things as they come, if you can. Try to enjoy the yard work, because it seems that it's a never ending job. (I live on a quarter of an acre, and I can't ever seen to get everything trimmed/planted.)

Sorry if it's a bit late but I hope you had a great birthday.Also very glad to hear you're going OK.

Yard work..... I've got to start mine sometime tomorrow as our shire is having a kerbside collection of any green waste. I have just got to keep reminding myself how better I'm going to feel when it's done.

All the best.
