Hi Guys . . . .

I am going to miss my deadline for a tutorial, I am sorry.

My youngest daughter joined the National Guard and last week was when she went to her basic training. Had a lot to do, was out a lot and then spent about 10 hours with her at Lambert Airport in St. Louis.  We waited with her for all of the other National Guard recruits to get in from everywhere.  They were arriving by planes.  We are lucky, we only live about an hour and a half away from St. Louis and could spend that time with her waiting.  We also live about 3 hours away from her post where she will be doing her basic training. We will get to see her graduate and be able to visit while she has her AIT, (advanced individual training, lots of new anachronisms to learn).
Well, all went well and we have even heard from her, a 2 minute call Sunday night was allowed for saying her address, no time to talk, just the address.  My husband took the call and was relieved to hear her voice and said, "It didn't sound like she was sick.".  We are glad because my husband and I caught the cold from "____" and hoped she hadn't gotten it, too.  We've been crabby, cold, hungry and all sorts of other things while laying in bed with the cats. Getting better, on the mend. Finally taking a well deserved shower!!  Way too much information, I know!!

I have the supplies for the batteries and found U.S. suppliers for you.  Will try to get it put up by the end of the week.

No need to send "Get Wells",  I know you all wish me well !!! Thanks for being there, Kris


  1. I'm glad you are feeling better, and I'm sure most of your faithful readers would agree with me in saying: If and when you can put up tutorials, we enjoy them and learn from them, but we would not want you to feel any pressure from us on when or how or what you post.

    Thank you for your generosity in sharing your knowledge with us!

  2. We all understand family comes first and you should not feel the need to apologise. It is nice your daughter is not too far away and you will be able to see her graduate.

  3. Por supuesto que la familia es lo primero!!!! Es bueno que tu hija no esté demasiado lejos y podáis verla.Espero que poco a poco vayas recuperándote!!!!

  4. No need to apoogise, heck, I just appreciate you sharing your tips, tricks, and knowledge with us. As far as your daughter, you must be just about busting with pride!! :)

  5. Felicidades por tu hija y por que la puedas ver a menudo, gracias por tu generosidad por compartir tus conocimientos con todos nosotros, se feliz.

  6. congratulazioni a tua figlia! C'è sempre apprensione quando i figli sono lontani!
    Non preoccuparti per il tutorial e grazie per il tuo interessamento.
    Un bacio

  7. Hi Kris,
