Re: My Dad passed away..

I didn't realize what an info dump I did on you all. I just re-read it all. Thanks for even glancing at it, if you even got through it, it was long. We went to his workshop and found so many unfinished projects. Some of them Mom & I may be able to finish. He was making me a tiny gourd with a carved ...

Re: My Dad passed away..

Dear Atropos, I am so sorry to hear this news. My deepest sympathy to you and your family, and I appreciate your sharing with us here what happened. You and your family will be much in my thoughts. I have lost both parents at a relatively young age (in my 30's and 40's) as they were older than the ...

Re: My Dad passed away..

Ah, sweetie, I am so so sorry to hear this. It has been such a journey for you from your father's getting sick to passing. It is so hard to watch our once strong beloveds become ill and die, and it is something we all must deal with. We will lose everything and everyone we love...which is why humor...

Re: My Dad passed away..

So sorry for your loss, honey!! And I totally understand the inappropriate humor. Been there done that. I was pissed off for getting charged for the fucking body bag. (Sorry if that's too much, but you probably get it, I hope. But seriously???) My thoughts are with you! And just remember he's at pe...

My Dad passed away..

I know I have been a fair weather friend on the forum. I apologize. My dad has been battling a giioblastoma since last year. His health started to fail badly in the last few months, despite the scans showing the tumor not growing. The last month was the worst. He wasn't a great eater, due to the che...

Re: Another Story?

Sorry I've been gone so long. My dad's health has been failing badly and he finally passed from his cancer this Monday. I've been a little distracted.

If I'm not too late, and I probably am, I'd vote for Stewart & Isabella! I'd love a Victorian Christmas.

Re: Help! Book rut...

Seconding Vanity Fair. I'm a big Victorian fan (which will come as no surprise to anyone who's read my books!), and some of my favorites from that era are Jane Eyre (Charlotte Bronte--and if you've read JE already, try her Villette ), Middlemarch (George Eliot), Bleak House (Dickens), and The Woman...

He lives in a city called Tun Faire, his best friend is a half dark elf named Morley Dotes who is a bone breaker and life taker. Th...
