Lethal here with a couple late breaking bulletins.
Our Top Story:
The Blue One himself, Impish Dragon is home and has been since late Tuesday. I barely spoke with him via text on Tuesday and not at all yesterday. This was part of the reason for the delay in updating you.
I was also heavily involved and tied up and couldn’t spend the time for personal things until now. However this was sort of a stroke of good fortune as I spoke via text with Impish, (or as he now apparently prefers to be known Impish of Borg) late this afternoon.
He has already been to his first Physical Therapy appointment and graduated from (guessing) walker to a cane. He’s still quite fatigued and in some pain but according to him is ahead of his recovery schedule at this point.

Some of you posted well wishes to Impish prior to his trip in the comments section that were delayed in being approved. This is a new wrinkle with WordPress that I have as yet had time to run down. We used to receive emails notifying us when there were comments to approve. Suddenly this has stopped and we didn’t have a clue about it until I spotted a bunch waiting for approval on Monday while checking to make sure yesterdays issue was going to post correctly. As soon as I have the time of Impish feels up to it we will attempt to locate the problem and see if we can correct it. Mean while we ask your understanding and indulgence if it takes us a while to approve your comment.
While I am not in the direct path of soon to be Hurricane Harvey I am on the dirty side of the storm. This means I won’t suffer the high winds and the high rainfall vs. short time period totals of being the the path but I will receive a great deal of rain.
How much? Well latest estimates put it at some place between 10 and 15 inches measured from the start late tomorrow (Friday) until sometime next Wednesday. Apparently once the slow moving storm is on shore it’s going to hook a right and come our way as a Tropical Storm.
According the the Weather Guessers ,as long as we get the rain in spaced out measure quantities there will be flooding but it should be minimal and controllable (they hope). IF we get a lot all at once over a short period or even over the course of a day, there will be problems. I expect to lose my U-verse service at some point and possibly my power as well. Also if we get a lot of rain obviously we have a chance for road and/or apartment flooding and even the possibility if the near by bayou floods enough of a mandatory evacuation.
What this means at this point is next weeks issue (which I have yet to even start) is somewhat of a crap shoot unless I can dash one out tomorrow (also a crap shoot).
However as I understand it you will be hearing from the Blue One himself on Saturday. Exactly where he will be addressing you from I am unsure of. Might be Dr. Nick’s Infirmary here at DL/LL H.Q., possible from a newly designed for his recovery and physical therapy suite at the Hokey Pokey Recovery Center, heck for all I know Impish of Borg may well address you from a Borg Cube, Sphere or even Unimatrix 001 with the Borg Queen looking over his shoulder. Fair warning– he has been mumbling something about “Resistance to Puns is futile.”
And that’s the way it is Thursday August 24th 2017. Good Night Readers.
How you and family are safe from the incoming storm. Also, Imphish coming to heal.
We’re safe from the Hurricane aspect but pretty much slated to be deluged with rain.
Not the 30+ inches that lower Houston will get but still enough to give us concerns.
As of right now, we’re looking at somewhere between 10 to 15″ minimum between now and next Thursday.
How we make out pretty much depends on how we get that much rain. We get a bunch then a breather we’ll probably be ok.
Unfortunately, as of right now, the Weather Guessers say it’s going to go as far as San Antonio then double back and maybe
park over Houston as a Tropical Storm on Wednesday.
Already it’s a problem getting bottled water. Even 1/2 an hour North of us where Molly works they have none.
We’ll be filling what ever bottles, jugs, and pitchers we can find around here and probably a few pots and pans as well with drinking water.
I keep several jugs from cat litter to fill for use in flushing though they do get very heavy to handle when full.
As of right now we’re crossing fingers and rubbing worry stones, shamrocks, and the odd rabbit’s foot when we can catch one while playing
hurry up and wait.
Glad to hear the surgery went well, and that the recovery is going even better. Remind the Big Blue One, that pushing too much will cause many problems. Take it as recommended. My wife had gone through this and she pushed it and never really got back to 100%. Best wishes to all!!
Already been there and done that Howard way back on Tuesday when he told me he was using a cane already.
I don’t think he took me seriously but maybe if enough of us chime in he will
Then consider me to have chimed! Hopefully he will listen. But dragons aren’t known for taking advice. He’s lucky to have a friend (or is that fiend?) like you to keep track of him. LOL.
Howard, yes indeed, I am truly blessed to have a friend like Lethal. And blessed as well with the other friends I have made on this silly adventure. And even though you laugh at my discomfort, I consider you, too as friend. Or maybe fiend. Not sure, it could be one or the other.
I only laugh to lighten the situation. For the most part I consider you and the rest of the group as friends. But like you, I can be a fiend when the need arises, hehehe.
SEX fiend does not count Howard!
Wait? Who’s been talking? LOL.
Talking? Dude, there are picture and videos making the rounds!
That’s not me! Those are forgeries!! It’s my evil twin, uhm… a look alike. That’s my story and I’m sticking to it! LOL.
Wow, a complete page of denials right out of the Impish Dragon Playbook!
I had no idea he was selling it.
See? He’s the look alike. Don’t forget those shape shifting abilities of his. Why I bet he made himself look like me just to avoid any future compensations, err, complications. Besides, he’d obviously have more success by posing as me rather than himself. Haven’t you ever wondered about people saying they had seen you and you had no memory of being there? Impish!!
