    'ello again, folks! It's been a crazy couple of months since I'd last been here... I apologize for my rudeness in suddenly dropping out of SC, but I'm here again and hopefully for good. :biggrin:

    What happened with me? Well...

    - moved crazy old mother-in-law into a new facility, resulting in her having hallucinations, two 9-1-1 calls, four trips to the ER, a broken hip and currently physical therapy
    - my girlfriend going into the ER on New Year's Eve, diagnosed with a bilateral kidney infection, nearly died form an allergic reaction to a pneumonia vaccine, 2 weeks in the hospital
    - my beloved cat Calhoun passing away the morning of Super Bowl Sunday

    and one bit of good news, we adopted a 7 month old kitten from the local pound, she's an adorable, rambunctious PITA we've named Abagail Rose.

    So that's the nutty narrative of my life over the last few months, and now I come knocking on the door of SC... may I please be let in? :redface:

    you know the old saying "when it rains, it pours"...... sounds like you had yours. Hopefully it's all in the past now. More photos of your new kitten please.

    Ah, years ago we had cats who would bring home lovely presents, blood as red as lipstick... but it's always been too dangerous, my neighborhood's road has claimed too many pets over the years, the kitties go no further than the back deck, now.

    It sounds like you had a really hard time of it there. Hopefully the new addition is helping to bring some joy back.

    welcome back! To catch you up on what's been happening...

    Canon's gone out of business
    Leica is now selling $400 rangefinders
    Apple makes a medium format film camera

    :tongue:

    hope the family health issues are resolved and there's always room for more cats on the Internet.

    :rofl:

    If I was away for awhile and someone told me that, I would seriously freak out and believe that I'm in a weird parallel universe.
