---Herodotus (Greek historian)
With apologies to Herodotus and the U.S. Post Office, I say that "Neither snow nor rain nor heat nor gloom of night" has stopped me from writing my blogs and adding reviews of books I read each week. Unfortunately, I found my Waterloo in Hurricane Irma. As we sit here in South Florida, preparing for this monster, I haven't had the time to pontificate on events that surround me or the patience to really delve into a book.
So I ask your forgiveness for skipping this week and really hope that I will have a working computer for next week's blog/reviews. Also, for anyone who is writing me a note in blog comments, or emailing me, please realize that it might take me longer than usual to answer. The internet gets finicky in storms, and electricity is never a certainty. Rest assured, if I have the ability to connect, I will respond to you.
For now I am back to prepping.
