The Return

No deed humbles a man better than falling down on his knees.

I recently found wisdom in this. And truth.

I have always blamed work for being too busy to update my blog. I always complained about not having enough time to do the things I want to do, like playing with my kids, taking photography classes, or writing a new post. I have juggled work and personal life and dropped the ball so many times that I thought I should call it quits with Bloggerville.

Until it happened. I fell. Hard. On my knees. Literally.

I had an accident where I dislocated my knee cap (I will write the details on my next post). The doctors said I need at least a month of bed rest. Lying down. Doing nothing but rest my injured leg for it to heal completely.

Now I have all the time in the world to write.

I am humbled.

I hope the blogging community welcomes me back with open arms.

Well, as much as I'm happy to see you back in the neighborhood, I really do feel that dirk_star was out of line in having your kneecaps shattered.

Good to hear from you, pal!

How the... how did you know this is Dirk's doing?

Seriously, it's quite a story how I busted my kneecap. I'll let you all in it soon.

Stay tuned!

A hell of a way to get some writing time! Good to "see" you again, Russkal.

russkal said...

Thanks Wiz.

It's nice to see familiar faces here like yours again.

It is so good to see you again Russkal! I just wish it was under better circumstances.

You'll have plenty of company durning your recovery and I hope it is a swift one.

I'm sorry about the knee. I know knee pain can be brutal. You'll be in my thoughts.

Dirk_Star said...

Oh that nameless one is always blaming me for everything!

He's jealous because Pepper is is in town visiting me at this very moment.

Yes, she really is!

We are having a blast.

Heal up and welcome back. You have been missed.

russkal said...


Thank you.

I do need company right now. The kids are in school and the wife's at work, it can get really lonely when you're injured.

russkal said...


I know!

I just read Pepper's post and I can tell that you guys are really having fun.

Regards to you both!

Dirk_Star said...

And you thought you weren't in our hearts...

Silly lad.

Welcome back!

Robin said...

Found you through Pepper. Having never met you before, it's hard to welcome you with open arms... how 'bout some Fried Chicken and a chat?

Hope you're better soon....


Pepper said...

Welcome back! I am sorry to hear about your injury. How did it happen? I know, I know the next post and I will be waiting anxiously.

russkal said...


Fried chicken sounds great! I like you already : )

Thanks for stopping by.


Thanks. Will let you all know soon, I promise.

Crabby said...

Ouch! You're makin' my knees hurt just thinking about dislocating a knee cap.

Did Dirk push you?

russkal said...


I know. It hurts like hell.

No, Dirk didn't push me. But you know what? that certainly puts an interesting twist to my story.
