Thystle awakened me recently from my winter hibernation to ask where the heck I've been. An entirely reasonable question given that there have been times when I was posting 2-3 times a week. While I'm not saying I am entitled to Writer's Block because I don't think I qualify, I did hit a wall and have needed to take a break from posting.

Having said that, there are a few marginally interesting events that have occured over the last few months that might be worth putting pen to paper for. Please review them and let me know if you see something you would like to hear more about:
  • We finally sold the MONEY PIT at the end of 2009 and it is now draining someone else of their life savings. We wish the new owners well but are shocked we haven't heard from them in the form of a letter bomb.

  • Our crazy ex-Realtor Ben is even crazier than we thought. We filed a complaint against him with the State Board of Realtors, which has caused an even darker, eviler side of him to show its ugly face. He makes Rasputin the Mad Monk look like Mother Teresa.

  • I am going to Thailand at the end of February.

I see that I have lost one of my 17 Kool-Aid drinkers and fear more will depart if I don't start posting again. So as a public service, please feel free to suggest I expand on one of the subjects about or else I will keep getting furtive notes from Thystle.


  1. I was perusing Thystle's 'People I Stalk' list, and saw Wait Wait There's More. And thought to myself, "I seem to remember a blog by that name. Whose is it?" Yippee -- you're back!!

    I would like to know about this trip to Thailand. And Crazy Ben.

  2. I am flattered that anyone would want to stalk me, given how uninteresting and ordinary I am. I will have to send Thystle a Thank You Note.

    I am currently fielding the mountain of comments cascading into my Inbox and will post by the end of the week on the most popular request. Thank you for entering yours here, Sheila. You may also stalk me if you wish. I would be honored.

  3. I suppose I would like to know more about the trip to Thailand. I'm pretty sure it's not to look at the fine array of bamboo furniture. You can go to Walmart to look at that.

    Nice to see you again.

  4. RL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    I never gave up hope. Now if we could just find Jimmy Hoffa.


  5. How about a posting entitled "The Christmas Trip from Hell"? I think that would be a fun read.
