Hi, everyone. It’s been
a long time between posts here on “Beyond the Southend.” I’ve missed you all
since I had to leave this space at the end of April. I still have not had the
operation I need on my right thumb as I simply ran out of time before I left
Georgia. I will however try to continue the blog as I am able to until such
time as I can arrange for the operation so that I can return to you full time.
During the summer a lot
happened to me personally included the death of my dear brother, Ted. You have
all enjoyed his old “Fish and Chips” columns here and I will try to bring you
more of his old columns as soon as possible. I will also do a special tribute
to him at a later date.
Nanci and I are now
residents of Maine, as we moved here in the middle of October. We are still
trying to get the house here in Warren ready for winter with some much needed
repairs. We therefore can’t visit you all very much until our projects are
finished. At least we have most of the boxes unpacked and as much stuff put
away as possible until we have arranged our storage spaces better.
I will certainly plan,
however, to attend the next RHS Class of ’59 breakfast at the Brown Cow next
month. Please all come so that I can reconnect with you all.
Two special little twins I said good bye to
in Georgia…Kennedy on the right and Rayne on the left, daughters of former
workmate, Casey Shumate Parr and her husband.

See you later. Until then wish me luck in luring Butchie out of one of many of his new hidey holes.
I am sorry to say that I must put the blog on hiatus for a few months. My right hand is in need of surgery, that will happen later on this summer. Until then, I must use it as little as possible. That means, no typing, no mousing, no nothing :(
Thank you so much for your continued loyalty, and I hope to be up and running again as quickly as I can heal.
