Colonialist Died in 2019

It brings home how fleeting and transitory blogging relationships are that only two people seem to have noticed.

Anyway, a Lazarus act was effected today, as may be seen.

The reasons for the sudden departure are many and complex, and involve the effective scrapping and replacement of two computers and the total loss of internet for the period. For some time, every forward step to correct the situation involved two backwards.

Many activities have been indulged in during the ‘missing’ period, some of which may be reported upon in due course.

Swimming and Shelves featured a lot in activities over the first half of January.

  2. Sien nou eers hierdie inskrywing! Daar is tog sterk bande van gedeelde belangstellings, wel en wee tussen bloggers. Ek beskou jou as ‘n goeie vriend!

    I just wondered how you were doing as you haven’t been in my reader for a while (that I’ve noticed, I must confess) and I call by and see this. Crikey! Computers, eh? Hope things are working better now.

  6. Oh, what a start your title gave me, Col! I’ve been stalking your blog and FB for any updates this year, and then this. 😯 Wishing you a happy and much healthier ‘New’ year and don’t go giving us near heart failure again.

    Machines and their unfortunate habit of dying just when we need them the most, and in threes!
    Well, Les, at least you’re still here to tell the tale, but if I hadn’t have known otherwise, your choice of title would have given me a nasty shock!

    By the way, that was particularly bad timing with your title.

    I noticed, but had last heard from you at xmas and wasn’t sure if I should inquire since you never responded to the previous email asking where you were (beginning of December). That had given me a bit of worry.

    Glad you’re back amongst the blogging.
