To all of my loyal readers

I apologize for my extended absence. As I indicated in my last update things were going to be rough.I had no clue as to how accurate that was going to be.I feel like as song from the show hee haw.Because if it weren't for bad luck I'd have no luck at all. Anyway.

My wife made it through her three spinal surgeries. Two on her lower back and one on her neck. They were trying to return her to normal, just improve her quality of life. In that they were successful. That doesn't mean she still doesn't have pain, as she does. The doctors are able to keep her comfortable with a combination of meds.

As for me, I cared for her during her surgeries and recovery leaving little time nor energy for writing. After her full recovery I was supposed to have my left knee replaced. Well the fates intervened again. Days before my initial appointment, I fell and shattered my left wrist. The day I was to have my first appointment for my knee I was in surgery.

Sadly I am a two handed typist and I suck at hunt and peck, or one handed typing. After I healed and had therapy to strengthen my wrist it was time for my knee surgery. I tell yo what, don't time to write while on pain meds. Little of it makes any sense. By the time I was done with therapy and weened off the pain meds… spring was upon me.

It was time to prep the garden and mow the yard and do repairs to the house… I'm certain yo get the picture. I am still busy, but on rainy day like today, and yesterday, and the day before. I have time to write. Excluding moving the living room around.

So the big question is: How close am I to posting something new on Accidental Commander? I'm afraid that I am not that close. I have been rewriting and reformatting all of my stories, but! Three weeks ago the file that I keep all my stories in corrupted. I had a back-up, but the mist recent things I had written were gone. I have been spending the intervening time to go back and reformat and rewrite the things I had finished before the file corrupted. I am doing a daily back-up onto another harddrive.

So that brings you up to date. I don't know how long it will take me to start posting again. I promise that I will do my best to keep writing away until I can. You can't imagine the joy of letting all of those characters out of my head again. Thanks for your patience and support.
