I apologize to my readers for being absent, but it can't be helped. I have other things to do and haven't had time to pound out a blog. I've heard people say that Retirement is busier than when you're working and I can vouch for that. This little spurt of not having any free time will go on through January at least.
I've managed to finish O'Shaughnessy's New Deputy again. What happened was the prior proof was almost perfect, but it contained some typos and English errors, maybe a half dozen, and when I corrected them and re-submitted, for some reason the format was all screwed up. I retyped everything and sent it in again and I'm waiting to see the Proof copy and see if it came out all right as the draft document showed. This story has taken almost a year of revising and drafting and trying to meld four or five versions into one. A lengthy process indeed!
My volunteer duties have crowded into my routine leaving very little time for anything, but that should end around the end of January and maybe I can get back to regular blogging.
In the meantime, I wish you all a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
