Fun times

I’m being held hostage by my ISP/phone/cable company, so I am unable to keep this up until they start playing nice.  Mediacom has thus far avoided BBB, and weekly requests (since November) to fix the problems and now they are worse…no one can call in and internet is very intermittent.  The biggest pain is I’m paying for this….ay yi yi.  Anyway, didn’t want to give the impression that I’d vanished, I’ve actually got lots of stuff to share.  Hope to real soon.

Thomas Edward “Eddie” Belser passed away on the 3rd of August after a lengthy illness.  I’m really sad about it today.  I didn’t get to meet Eddie a couple years ago because I wasn’t able to get to the Gray reunion, and now I won’t ever get that chance….sigh.  Eddie is my second cousin and was 4 months younger than I am.  He is also a great-grandchild of Jim and Annie Gray of Pensacola, but his close relations are in Jacksonville.  I hope to be able to meet his closer kin someday soon….well, not in hurricane season though!
