Just a Note...

Just a note to explain our disappearance...

Last week was a flurry of activity, settling a brand new dog into the house.  I meant to blog, I did, but it somehow never happened.

Last weekend and the first half of this week I was at a professional conference in Philadelphia, which made me sick with a cough and head congestion.  It was also a good conference, but the cough and congestion are what remains.

I was home for about 24 hours and learned last night that my grandmother passed away.  It wasn't completely unexpected; she has been fighting Stage 4 lung cancer for awhile now, and that evil disease was taking its toll on her.

So I'll probably be a little scarce for just a bit longer; I need to make last-minute travel plans and get myself to Kansas City for the funeral as soon as I find out when it is going to happen.


  1. Purrs - we are sorry about your grandmother and know she is at peace now. And what a great souvenior from a conference. :)

  2. My sympathies on your loss--please take care of yourself, and we'll see you soon.
    Trish & the Horde, xx

  3. The real world often gets in the way of our cyber world. I'm very sorry to read of the passing of your Grandmother.

  4. Sorry to hear you aren't feeling well and for your grandmother passing.

    Take care of yourself.

    Read the last post and so glad to hear about both dogs getting along and that the cats are coming around. :)

  5. Paw-taps, hugs. You have had quite the couple of months, haven't you. We'll look forward to hearing back from you when you can. Do travel safely.

  6. Sorry to hear about your Grandma. Take care of yourself and hope to see you soon.

  7. I'm so sorry to hear about your grandmother. No matter if we know the time is coming, it's always painful.

    Looking forward to hearing about the new dog, when you're ready. :)

  8. Thanks, all. We are back again, and I will be hitting the ground running tomorrow.

  9. I'm a bit behind and catching up - very sorry to hear about your grandmother. Sending hugs your way!
