Let's see...I came here right after 9-11 because I felt the need to hang out with others. Especially others from different countries to get a worldwide view of the events that followed.
I stayed after that, but left mad a few times, started a long relationship with waugs, (the love of my life, I think), broke up after 4 years due to my substance abuse, and then got clean, moved around a lot, finally landed back in my hometown with my husband who I hadn't been with for 28 years. And now I'm done running, in love, and content with my life in the flat ass, ugly midwest.
Enter Covid in 2020, and then even more horrifying, Russia's invasion of Ukraine and the very real threat of WW3, or in other words, the end of us all.
So if I'm suddenly gone again, so are you.
It was fun while it lasted, I must say. Sending a huge amount of gratitude to jutta, who put up with us all for oh so many years.
