    I know, no one noticed I was gone, but anyway, I'm back. Nothing serious, just a little economic despondency and feeling sorry for myself. You know, like I always do. So did I miss anything?

    I missed you and I am glad you have returned! I hope "things" are better for you?

    You are not alone.

    I have every expectation that the World Health Organization will announce an economic despondency pandemic any day now.

    Welcome back!

    (As you may have noticed, some of the old smileys have come back too.)

    You were missed but I just assumed that you were wandering about that big, beautiful state of yours. Welcome back.

    It's just amazing what little you can accomplish when you lose your sense of humor.

    They can't, haven't you heard? They had to fire everyone because of the economic crisis!

    I hope you've found it back! You'll need it here in Scuttlebutt..... ....to enjoy posts like these!
    Seriously though, it's hard to cope when humor has vanished! Life is a drudge then and everything seems extremely hard to do! Just take one day at a time and keep looking for the good things that will happen during that day.

    Nah, just a little left over holiday cheer.

    So anyway, the good news is that I have a new job and I don't have to drive to do it. Garbette made it through high school and graduated. So now, instead of thinking she knows everything (and therefore, I don't) now she has a piece of paper to prove it. I guess my college diploma which I have prominently displayed in my office is no deterrent to her. I just wish she hadn't taken Psychology because now I never hear the end of all my mental problems. Which reminds me - gotta go wash my hands again.

    So what happens now to your favourite Garbette - does she go on to college and become even more h'educated? Will she be doing even more psychology there?

    Good that you've got another job, to keep her in the style in which she wishes to become accustomed!

    Well this should take care of that little problem. Got a spare frame lying about anywhere?

    Alan, that is just too precious. And it looks way better than my gold star (graduated with honors like it matters now) diploma.

    I'll try to keep in touch but I'm working double duty right now and after a 50+ hour week, I'm just kinda tired and bleary eyed.
