Over the past week I have received some very nice inquiries about my absence and skipping live chat the past two Fridays.

For the past few weeks I've been trying to stay on top of covering what's going  on in our town, including the crazy war going on between the NRA and Ackerman McQueen, while also dealing with some health issues.

Nothing to really worry about, but my body had the final say and yeah, I've been out of commission for several days. That, of course, can be a challenge in a city where things simply won't slow down.

I'm not back at 100 percent, but I'm rested enough that I'm back to tell stories and sharing news again. And yes, live chat will return this Friday at the normal time, 9:30 a.m.
