Short Post - I May Be Back Later

Blogger was an invalid much of the day. I could read comments but they weren't coming into my mailbox and I couldn't respond in anyone else's comment boxes who uses Blogger.

I emailed the people I could.

Briefly to all of you. Thanks for the concern. I didn't mean to imply that we live in fear constantly although it's always lurking just under the surface.

What got to me more than the actual gunfire was my gentle, loving Rochelle's matter -of-fact reaction. The oh, well "no dead bodies". That should never come out of a child's mouth. Never.

I was right though. Today is better although I did the things I absolutely had to do and went back to bed. Not much sleep last night.

I'm getting this last word I may say on the subject for now (at least in a post) out of the way so I can go back to the daily doings, recipes, and memes.

Until the next time at least.

Much love to all

Ann

Ann, just so you know, I like you serious and thoughtful at least as much as I like you down to earth and "granny."'

I think it's great that you are serious and concerned, but that you also spend time being fun. It's a good mix to have. I love that you are a great-grandmother who blogs- I don't think my grandmother could connect to the internet, let alone blog!

Gunfire is a big thing to have to cope with.
I never have and I hope never to have too and I spent much of my childhood on military bases.

Take care.
I love all your posts. Glad you didn't delete these ones.

That sounded like quite an adventure of concern you folks had, glad all were OK. I had trouble on my Sunday blog as well, but finally got it to post. ec

Take care, try not to worry so much, and try to get some rest.

It's likely just a coping mechanism more than anything. I used to say all kinds of "shocking" things in order to NOT deal with the enormity or the scariness of situations.
