It’s a Happy Birthday Elk!

Greetings all on this last day of September! For the counters out there, you were probably getting worried that my production this month was coming up a bit short on my self-imposed quota. No worries, as you can see.. that deficiency has officially been addressed. Truth is this month is an annual test of how much sleep one truly needs to be able to function. In my case that is staggeringly low. Running definitely takes time off the top, but the rest is being consumed by work on the Haunted Trail of Tears. Somehow I forget how much work it is to put this on every year… a true labor of love. Today also happens to be the one year anniversary of my Father’s passing. One of the saddest days in my life and still a big hole in my heart that will never be filled. Um to that Yang, it is Ron’s birthday and nothing says Happy Birthday like an Elk.
