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.
