In other news. . .

In addition to being sick as hell today. (Sicker than I've been in a real long time, probably years. . .some kinds of fast, hard-hitting flu) I just found out that my grandfather, who helped raise me, and was the closest thing I had to a father, is dying.

HE has complications from severe alzheimers, and mini-strokes. His brain is just litterally falling apart.

HE's beaten the odds before, but it doesn't look good this time.

Some philosophical observations

One of the most noble things in humanity is charity: doing something for one's fellow
human in need. To engage in charity expecting to be given something out of it, expecting
to be paid back, or in order to get something out of it yourself, is vile.

There are a lot of other things: Such as taking what was agreed to be a personal issue
between a small number of people, and spreading it all over the net in order to bash
the people involved. No one appreciates the people who actually avoid naming names,
and who keep to thier word not to involve other people. As such, they don't defend
themselves, and are demonized, without thier side of the story ever being heard.

Even worse, and even more vile is to wait around until something good happens to others
so that you can cheapen it, or wait until something bad happens so you can make it worse.

We have connectivity again.

We have connectivity again!!!!!!!!!!

We are getting settled here in Mass.  It's a bit by bit process, but things are beginning to feel a bit closer to normal, though, truly, everything still seems a bit surreal at times.

There is literally no way that I can express how thankful I am to everyone who has helped us.  I have tried to find a way to express things since I sat down at the computer about 45 minutes or so ago, and I still have no way to explain.  THere are simply not the words in the English language (or any other language) to express how I feel. 

I am so thankful for everything that everyone has done for us, and continues to do.  I am amazed and in shock, and so thankful, that I literally don't know what to say.

If it wasn't for all y'all, we would have not gotten any further than the side of the road in Denham Springs, two dead cars ago.  THe fact that we and the cats are here, alive an well is a testament to just how wonderful all of you are.  If I became immortal, I would still not live long enough to repay your kindnesses, or even express my gratitude. 

THank you all so much.

I am so amazingly grateful to everyone who is helping us so much.  I really don't know what to say.
