There's No Place Like Home...

Hey gang!

Been quite a while since I've written anything here. I'll get to that in a second.

First and most importantly, I hope you are all having a wonderful, safe Memorial Day weekend.

Remember all of our veterans who, for no fame or glory, fought and struggled to protect our liberty and way of life, and gave their own lives while doing so.

May God protect all of our countrymen and women who have chosen to make duty to country their focus and passion. They are an inspiration, most deserving of our respect and gratitude. They are sacrificing their lives for ours, doing so in some of the most dangerous and inhospitable places imaginable.

God bless and protect them and their families.

Now onto a much less important matter.

I've been on a "leave of absence" from Wizbang for quite some time now. Due to an avalanche of difficult personal and physical issues, I've unplugged myself from the theater of news and politics, as I've found it difficult to concentrate on forming and relaying my own humble opinions to others.

I've spoken to Kevin about my various ongoing and lengthy situations, and he has been most understanding, never once pressuring me or making me feel as though I've not been pulling my weight. The rest of my colleagues have been supportive, as well.

That said, I've missed alot these past 6 months.

Even though I haven't consistently kept myself immersed in the realm of information lately, I have, during these last few months, probably started about 15 articles concerning various issues at one point or another. However, for whatever reasons, I've just never felt comfortable posting them.

I have tried to at least still spend time reading Wizbang on a fairly daily basis.

It is nice to see many of the same familiar gang of visitors, still commenting thoughtfully, and still having the their quills at the ready to deconstruct the lunacy of our more committed, left-wing slugs.

I am disappointed I was not here to witness or be involved in the use of 'Olaf's Troll Hammer' on some more of the notable rodents who've scurried around here. "Dane" got bopped out, and some buffoon named "Alex," who I never had the pleasure of battling, was smashed into oblivion.

I must admit, I have missed being a part of the 'Wizbang Effect' during my absence.

Yet, I have felt a bit better as of late, and I think I'm once again getting bitten by the blogging bug. So I hope to be able to start contributing again in some regular fashion.

I'm a bit rusty with writing at the moment, so, forgive me if my form is out of whack. Hopefully, after a few tries, it will be like riding a bike again.

Anyway, it feels good to be back!

I haven't been here long enough to notice you were missing, but welcome back.

Maybe you could write about what's been going on in your life while you were gone? It might be therapeutic, and I'm sure it would be interesting.
