The Blog is back on quite a roll.

Sorry I have been away the last twelve months or so, the Blog has had to take a rest from my typing fingers and Amateur Radio has been put well away on the back burner.

I lost both my parents within five months of each other early last year and I still have not really got over the ordeal yet, which had played out over five years before their demise.

    4. New interests can help…new hobby, learn new skill, take a course, volunteer, etc.

    Oh, my. My prayers and good wishes go out to you, sir. ❤✝❤

    Your parents will always be with you in spirit. Take the time you need to grieve. We and Amateur Radio will be here when you’re ready.

    An awful year. The natural order is we die before our children, for that be thankful. That doesn’t make it easier though, I am sure the thoughts of all the community are with you. Onwards and upwards!
