I posted two stories today. The author submitted them closer to the holiday season, but I have been extraordinarily slow in getting them up. Sometimes family stuff just piles up. My mom passed away after a long battle with Alzheimer's on Jan 4th, then about the time we were recovering from all that went on with that, my mother in law had a heart attack on Jan 13th. She had a pacemaker installed Monday, and is home and doing very well, but somehow 2012 hasn't seemed like it's going to be my lucky year! Anyway, baring more trouble, I should be more in the groove. I just wanted to apologize to Searider for the long delay.
