I'm back

Post by KAV » Mon Aug 04, 2014 7:21 pm

Hello to everyone! finances, or the grave lack of same kept me offline. In truth, I experienced how people can become invisible and disenfranchised. I am still without a car. However, my brothers both suffer diabetes from obesity and I weigh @ what I did in my 20s. The TeeVee went and I actually read all the books I thought I had and live quite nicely without Judge Judy, car chases and Justin Bieber.
My nieghbor kindly let me use her signal and I dusted off the laptop and took two days remembering how it works. I actually managed a small order fro Bullgoose! I've been using up all the assorted gifted soaps from so many of you. I[promise not to resurrect to many ancient posts!

Glad to hear you're doing well - and here's to reading many more posts from you soon!

Ah KAV!...indeed....welcome back. I too have experienced being "invisible and disenfranchised" in this society and, while I can't honestly recommend it, it did have it's attractions and advantages. If you check the back posts from around when you disappeared you will see that you were missed.
