Hold The Controversy For Today

Picture a Day June 2, 2011 - 36-Star Flag at H...

              I want to thank all of you who have contributed to the discussions so far in the beginning posts of my controversy series.  The real controversies have not exactly begun yet, but we've gotten some good exchanges going so far on the posts that have been laying the groundwork for controversies to come.  And please keep in mind that I'm not trying to turn any readers off with my discussions.  I am merely attempting to stimulate our brains.

            These controversial posts will be starting up in the next couple of weeks.  However, I am currently in mourning as I take a trip to Tennessee for a short while to be with family after the passing of my stepfather, George Lechelt, on Saturday October 13th.  This is a sad time, but I look forward to spending time with my mother, daughters, granddaughters, and the rest of my immediate family.   I will probably be away from blogging much of the next couple of weeks.

           I do have some back up who will be covering for me.   On Wednesday I'll be joined by Carol Kilgore of Tiki Hut fame.  I wonder how controversial she will get?  Then on Friday Nancy S. Thompson will be celebrating the release of her new book The Mistaken.  I want to thank both of these fine ladies for standing in for me during my time away.

             Next week we'll have to see what happens.  If nothing happens on this space, bear with me--I'll be back soon.  Then again maybe I'll get something up by that time.

            In the meantime, watch the presidential debates if you can so you can get ready for the topics to come on Tossing It Out.

  2. Very sorry to hear that, Lee! We knew you were on a road trip for that reason.
    Carol and Nancy both rock (and I'm hosting Nancy on her tour this Friday) and they will keep things going here for you.

  14. I'm sorry for your loss, Lee. It's never easy losing the ones we love. At least you will have the comfort of other relatives.

    I know what's it's like to live on the opposite side of the continent from your family.
