Greetings once again to those whose tenacity and persistence have brought them once again to “The Quakers’ Colonel” in the virtual blogsophy.

In my last entry at the end of March, I expected to be out of circulation (in surgery this is not a lighthearted observation) for about a combined 30-day hospital and recuperative stay-at-home recovery. As it turned out, that 30 day period was fully devoted to the intensive care unit (ICU) and basic rehabilitationary therapy to move my medical status high enough to earn a “discharge to home-care status” with continued therapy and constant support from immediately family, other relatives, co-workers, and friends.

"The Quakers’ Colonel” will start on July 1, 2009.
Initially, I will post short commentaries on current topics on an irregular schedule until I feel “reconnected” to three months of the world’s events that came and went with no regard for anyone, most especially me. This process may take a number of weeks (quite possibly a year) to regain the style and subjects I had been addressing prior to the surgery to repair the aneurysm.

But I do plan to post three commentaries per week whenever I can and to resume working with colleagues at FCNL.
