Hi Folks; I’m back (sorta).
Thanks very much to those of you who sent replies and emails of encouragement. It meant a lot to me that you took a few moments to write words of encouragement to a person many of you know only through a blog.
To bring you up to date, Judy’s operation was a success and she is recuperating quickly, up and about and in great spirits. However, she is also going to need months of follow-up treatment.
I apologize for being obscure about her situation. This is necessary because Judy and I are self-employed in a business in which our customers depend on our being available to help them. If they get the idea that Judy’s health issues might cause us to close or curtail our business (which is NOT the case), some of them may well decide to get proactive and jump ship. That we definitely can’t afford, especially considering the humongous medical bills that we now have to pay.
Of course I don’t tell our customers about my blog, which has no relation to our business, but I suspect that some of them might chance upon it by Googling my name. I have, in fact, received a few phone calls from customers who acted a bit odd, as if they were aware that something was up. Maybe I’m just being paranoid, but better safe than sorry. If any of you want specific information, feel free to email me.
Anyhow, about the blog. This summer is going to be very hectic; beyond business and Judy’s treatments, we are also in the middle of a big development project for the business, and I’ll be using much of my free time to post a lot of comics material on eBay to help raise money for our astronomical medical bills. This leaves little time for blogging, so I’m going to play it by ear. From what I’ve heard, many of you have RSS feeds or other methods to know when the blog is updated, so until things calm down around here I’m just going to post when I have something that I really want to share. In addition, I’ll be posting notifications on the blog whenever I put items on eBay. Don’t let my medical bills influence your bidding, he said, laying on the guilt trip 😉
