Happy Birthday, cousin!

How are you doing, eh?

Thanks, Anya. I have had a rocky couple of months health wise, but things have been rebalanced. Certain levels of electrolytes is not a suggestion, it’s a requirement.

How are you doing?

I’ve been better. Hot weather is not kind to me. (And, by hot, I mean over 80 degrees. I’d never survive Florida.)

I have been kinda worried about you: where has your outrage gone? I’d have thought you’d be lambasting the Big Orange Grouper.

I’m venting my outrage on Mastodon, a replacement for Twitter under an alias because of the madness that surrounds me on the Florida Panhandle.

The Former Guy got personally involved in the defense and screwed himself into 34 class E felony counts by refusing to plead.
