The compound is under construction. Gathering enough plywood, galvanized tin and used trailers takes time, not to mention stockpiling all the shotgun ammo, canned goods and bourbon.
Here's your mantra, Grasshopper...."Two years. Two years. Two years...."Welcome back-- you were missed.BTW, Edmund O'Brien is one of my favorite actors. I was just watching him in "Seven Days in May" on my day off (Monday) last week.

I got two good runs in this weekend, and that certainly helps too.Ten, I've found myself saying a few times lately "thank God I'm not in grad school on top of all this."
