Good Morning ...from Florence, Alabama!!!

Sitting on the" front porch" at the Sons apartment, watching the smoke rise from the Monarch Tiles smoke stack, and listening to the slowly rising traffic sounds.
Not as noisy as I had expected.
Still, no where near the tranquility experienced for the last few weeks, on the back deck, in Uncle Gus's "Hoodlum Hollow".
I like it. It has gone a long way in healing the experience of the fire. More on that later.

Gus enticed me into becoming a member of the "Neighborhood Watch" last week.
This consisted of me and Gus sitting in the Windstar, in the driveway, late at night, listening to tunes...really loud, with "refreshment" and watching for "suspicious vehicles".
None passed. A job well done.

Will likely be in the "hollow" for some time. The fire was a complete write-off. Removal and cleanup of smoke damaged items has been a total hell! There is NOTHING not affected by an oily, black smoke stain. Many items we just walked away from.

Developments in the Daughter/Grandboys/ Ex- Son-in-Law reunion have turned to sh*t. Nobody was really serious.
Grandboys love living in the hollow. Already been in the creek many times.
Sad to say when schools out, their Mother will be moving them to Tennessee again. Going back to her Soldier boyfriend again. This has put a serious strain between her Mother and her, THUS the vacation in Florence this week. I have since ceased trying to patch it up.

Have missed the interaction with you guys. Sad to hear about some of the "bumps" some of you have experienced lately. Good to see the support offered to you by the
"gang" here.

Once the dust settles, I will be taking up residence on the creek at "Hoodlum Hollow"...at some point which we may change to "Hootin' Hollow"...it's up to Gus Giggle

Until then, I wish everyone the very best!!!

Glad to see you back on line, Cage...

Chin up, all your problems will work out, given time. If I can be of help, you have only to ask.
