Return of the Dearg

By javam    
I know, I do not post anything for ages and when I do it is a mild rework of one I have posted before.

Well, it is more of a token gesture to show that I am still around.

I think it is fair to say that 2009 has not had the brightest of starts for us with 3 people we know dying since the year started, combine that with returning to work and a lack of camera time and all in all I have not had much desire or inclination to spend time on EPZ.

I need to get myself back in a positive frame of mind though so hopefully I will get some new material soon and get back into the swing of all things EPZ.

I hope you have all had a better start to the year, I look forward to catching up with you and some of your uploads soon.

Sorry to hear that Neil. Dad's mum died just after the new year, so I understand completely. Thoughts are with you, and I'll look forward to what's to come when things pick up.

As the Boss has already said, so sorry to hear about the start of 2009. Let's hope all is on the up from here.

As for not posting for a while, team W.A.S.P. began their 2009 European tour at the weekend and we were wondering where TD had got to! Wink

Love to Elisabeta and Jake Smile

Sorry to hear your bad news Neil. This version has more punch than the original. The original didn't look as I remembered it on your laptop, on my screen when I got home, but this one does (if that makes sense).

Thanks very much for all your comments and support. I really do appreciate your kind words.

Thanks particualry to Sarah for your user award.

My son has developed chicken pox since I posted this up, but I am trying to look on him getting it at age 2 as a positive thing!

I think some new material would cheer me up, but I think some more reworks will follow until then.

Thanks again.

Stunning picture of one of the most loved mountains here on EPZ. Hope that life will get better soon...

Good luck with caring for a 2 year old with chicken pox - you might need some extra rest when he has healed! Grin
