Exit 95 on the Yellowbrick Road...

And then it hit me:
standin' outside of Heaven,
waiting for God to come and get me,
I'm too uncouth......
("Superstar", Lupe Fiasco)
Ahem???
I said, AHEM?
Well, this is your Message Goat speaking, long distance, from Texas. I say long distance because, unbelievably, Bo has returned to the world of the living. However..... umm.... there is a slight glitch.
And that glitch is that Bo is no longer in Texas.
Yes, that's what I said--- that Bo is no longer in Texas. She's in Kansas now! And it's all very complicated.
And, sadly, I will not be able to continue being your Message Goat as I cannot afford the long-distance costs--- and also the fact that I'll have no idea what in the hell she is doing up there in Kansas. However, I will check in periodically, as circumstances permit.
I guess she'll just have to get somebody else to be her messenger.... perhaps a friendly Tin Man or Scarecrow---somebody who can accompany her down The Yellowbrick Road, if you know what I mean?
Sigh.
Oh, the humanity......
(I've always wanted to say that: 'oh, the humanity'. That and the phrase 'meanwhile, back at the ranch'. But Bo got a chance to use 'meanwhile, back at the ranch' on here somewheres---some time way back a bit---maybe in 2006 but I'm not sure. Now, if only I could get a chance to use the phrase "Houston, we have a problem".....)
Where was I? Oh yes, Bo's in Kansas.
So anyway, Bo has assured me that she will be back online here very soon ---and that she will continue her chronicles as before--- just as soon as she can get settled-- or else perfect her raspberry-peach butterpie recipe, whichever comes first.
Thank you, that is all for now.

Kansas works...there are still crazy old coots in Kansas, and wild flowers, Momma cows that try to eat you when all you want is through the gate...knitters and spinners and winds...and It is great to have you post again..Maggie--still in the old house in IL, now has foundation so roof is leaking--but only when it rains...

Holy Cow, You're HERE! What a wonderful gift to us this bleak, wintry day. I can hardly get my breath....can't wait for the fun to begin. And what wonders will you photograph in Kansas? Something very Bo-ish for sure.

Welcome back! You have been missed. I've lived in Kansas and wish I still did. I felt closer to God there. But for now I am in Ohio and hope to some day return to the Land of OZ.

OMG!!

I was so worried when we didn't hear from you for so long. I have missed your warmth, your caring, and your fantastic sense of humor.

I saw your post on sockknitters-- of course, I knew you'd be knitting wherever you were. Are you on Ravelry?

Since I am in SW MO (REALLY rural) I now can call you neighbor.

I look forward to laughing with you again.
love n hugs,
