My Absence from YouTube/Blogs

I know I have been gone from Facebook, my YouTube channels and my blogs for a while now. I wanted to let you all know what is going on and why. But first I want to say I will be back I'm just not sure when. I want to get back to posting like before eventually.


This last year, starting with the month of November 2017 has been by far the hardest of my life. While there have been some fantastically wonderful things happen (like my first grandson being born) there have been some very hard things happen also.

The deaths of several people close to me has hit me harder than I could have ever imagined. I have also watched people I care about suffer from mental/emotional issues and I have to say the feeling of helplessness that you are left with watching that is indescribable.

There have also been some financial worries in my life that have caused me more than a few sleepless nights.


I know I have been on the brink of depression for most of the last year and many days have been a battle just to get up and do what needs to be done.



I'm not telling you all of this for sympathy or anything else other than to let you all know what has been going on and why there have been so few videos.

I actually have several videos filmed or partly filmed (some from back in August) that I just haven't had the energy to finish. For whatever reason the idea of starting the editing just seems so hard right now.

I will make it up to all of you and the porch series will continue.

I am starting to feel better about life and more like myself the last few weeks. I will get back on track. I want to thank all of you that have stuck around while I have been absent.
