    Default I am alive and well....

    The reason for this very strange post, is that I have been asked by a few members here (via WApp, email, and even phone calls) where am I, and why have I left the forum. I feel so needed now...

    Truth be told, I last visited here in early March, shortly before a wonderful, and well deserved, 10 day break into the Kalahari. The day we went into the KTP, the first Covid case was announced in SA. By the time we came out, there were 51 cases... and when we arrived home the count stood on 62.

    Arriving back to this, and running a practice in the healthcare arena, you can imagine how much needed to be done, and how much time and effort had to go into making sure we survive (from a health as well as financial considerations). Apart from that, we have just recently invested a serious chunk of moolah in some relatively new techniques, and it needed undivided attention.

    Apart from that, MED (wife) is a travel agent (nuff said ) and my son (19yo and just started working at a civil engineering co) was retrenched.

    I thus took a conscious decision NOT to get back onto the forum as I just didn't have the time.... and make no mistake, this forum can take up a lot of our time. And yes, there was some petty crap going on (as per usual) but I don't get involved there so it really was not the issue.

    Not much has changed though... we are still struggling with all the same issues, and it's not an easy task to stay healthy and financially survive this whole lockdown fiasco. MED is obviously still not working, and Spannerboy has started working again, for a fraction of what he earned before, but loving every moment of it, doing mechanical work (which he loves, if you can remember his beetle restoring project).

    But, not wanting this to turn into yet another Covid thread, I am happy to say my family and I are all healthy and grateful for it. I will still not be here often, but to say I have not missed it, would be a lie... so I guess, I'm back!

    Now, to have the discipline to NOT be on here as often is going to be tricky....
