A Bad Week

For those of you asking why I haven’t been posting this week, I’ll let you know...

Last Saturday night, the husband of one of my cousins was killed in a car accident near St. Louis... a car accident that resulted in the deaths of five other people.

Add to that the news that another cousin (one who retired two years ago after 30 years in the army) is going back to Baghdad as a private contractor for one year.

And even more, it was a year ago yesterday that the daughter of another cousin was murdered (along with 3 others) and we received word this past week that the trial has been set for mid-November.

So needless to say, the past seven days have not been easy on my family and me, so I just wanted to let all of my faithful readers, and blogmigos, know where I’ve been.

I’ll be funny again next week, I promise...

My deepest condolences, Kemp. That's a heavy load to bear at one time. Chin up! Hope things lighten up for you (and Uranus) sometime soon.

No pressure to be funny. Really. You can come back all pissed and sarcastic and we'd all understand.

I'm sorry you all are going through this. My best to you and your family.

Kemp, I'm just catching up on your blog and wanted to send some thoughts your way. Like everyone else, I'm sorry you have to deal with all this crappy stuff at once, and I hope things turn around for you soon.
