So here I am again posting, again trying to explain my absence. Suffice to say that I have had a lot going on the past few months and the blog had to be shelved for a while. Thanks to Dawn for making a comment on my blog (which automatically sends an email to let me know) — because her action (and interest in my blog) raised my interest again. For now, I am going to leave it at this, because I have a friend coming over soon. I’m loading a new friend — a very loveable lab called Zeke. More about him later.
