Fair Enough…And More

The first entry in a new series on Starr Trekking‘s sister blog, Meet MythAmerica, is available now at the link below.

In this series I explore the startling significance to recent American history, and to modern American national politics, of an obscure–but fascinatingly unique–county fair out in the muggy mudflats of Mississippi.

Check out the introductory entry to this series:

    Where have you been?

    • Hi, Ian. So ya missed me, eh? 🙂 It’s a long story. Last September we were living in Savannah, Georgia, on the Atlantic coast of the US. For the second year in a row, we were attacked by a giant hurricane. Both times we were under mandatory evacuation orders, and both times we ended up having to drive to some friend’s home in central Alabama to have a place to stay until the storm passed and the area recovered. That should be a six hour drive, but last fall since a million people were being driven out of Florida by the same hurricane, and using part of the same escape route as we, it created gigantic traffic jams and took us eleven hours or so to get there. My family was traveling in a caravan of three vehicles with me in the front driving alone, my husband driving behind me with our adult grandson, our daughter bringing up the rear with our adult granddaughter and our 17 year old cat . I am 71 years old. I had to drive almost all that way… much of it in the dark, with only one potty break and one meal. We were gone for ten days.

      By the time it was all over I was adamant I was getting too old to have to chance facing this same nonsense year after year! So we determined we needed to move away from Savannah before the next hurricane season. In fact, before the end of the year.

      So I had to put everything including blog research and writing on the shelf for the next three months and organize a major family move for all of us far enough inland to not be accessible to hurricanes. I had to find a place to move to, find housing, supervise all the packing we had to do, plan for a moving van, and on and on. It was a real drain on me!

      We finished the move in early January, to a small town south of Atlanta, Georgia. By the end of January I was just settling in and about ready to start writing again… when I came down with a REALLY nasty upper respiratory infection that left me in bed for almost a month. Once I was recuperated, and just about ready to start research and writing again, I suddenly came down with an excruciating tooth ache… felt like a horse kicked me in the face. Bottom line… I needed a root canal job.

      Sooooo… after that was all taken care of, I finally started doing some research again and pulling together information for the blog series I have just started. (I was away from my earlier series on Donald Trump for so long that it’s going to take me a few weeks to get back up to speed on where I left off.)

      So there ya go. I hope to be able to put up new entries every week or so now.

    I have to admit I was getting worried about you. Delighted to hear that you weathered the move, the infection and the toothache! 🙂
