Civilization has encroached upon me. My living in the country has gone bye bye. I am surrounded by construction equipment razing the land. My deer friends are totally confused. Zeus, my rat snake has disappeared. The land I am currently on I am leasing and now it has been sold to be like the area around me. I cannot afford to do what I want right now, so I we are going to have to move to the city for a while. And, the pickings are real slim right now. I could not believe the number of scams out there on the real estate market. So, we settled on a house in what appears to be a relatively quiet working folks neighborhood. The shop will be smaller but I think I can work with it. Actually, I will have to work with it. So, hey. So, around the 4th of October I will be off line for a couple of days while the move is in progress. So, it will work out. As Dr. John Carter said on "It Came From Beneath the Sea:, don't we make our own luck?
