Although it wasn’t a “5-year” break from writing, it has been since October 27th…2 days before Hurricane Sandy walloped the east coast, that I wrote my last blog. The New Jersey shoreline was one area that took a serious blow as the eye of the storm focused on their barrier islands near Ortley Beach.
My 84 year old parents live…lived… 3 miles from Ortley Beach.
They’re both well as they were evacuated the day before the hurricane hit, but their house and their lives have since changed dramatically.
They now reside in Stamford and, needless to say, we’ve been extremely busy relocating and reorganizing their new world.
Just today my Dad asked, “How’s your Bog, Blog, whatever it’s called, coming along.” I was about to answer how I haven’t had much time to write ever since…..
But I decided against verbalizing that hasty response.
Instead I replied, “Funny you should mention that. I’m supposed to write one today.”
Can’t lie to Dad.
