Day #587 Here We Go Again

Remember last April when I had to stop attending the Gwinnett Citizen Fire Academy?

I’d made it all the way through the hose work in Class #5,   but was in too much pain to go any further in the training. 

Well, I’m back in class again—this time it’s the 18th GCFA. I’m not going to bore you with a repetition of all the stuff we’re learning for the next five weeks. After all, I already told you all that stuff in March and April. 

I was just getting ready to say that I’ll be happy to tell you all about classes 6 through 12 -- but it occurred to me that I’ll be past my 600 days well before those classes happen. 

What to do?

I’m going to think about it.

Should I change this to a once-a-week blog posting?

No. Here’s a better idea. My brand new website (with an associated blog) should be launched within another week or so. Fran Stewart dot com as we now know it will disappear, to be replaced by a new (improved!) site. I’m thinking what I’ll do is transfer all my blogging activity to that site. After all, with the bee allergy, I’m really not interacting with bees much anymore, and these blog entries have ranged far afield of beekeeping.

I know, I know. I can hear you sayingthey've ALWAYS ranged far afield. Yeah. You’re right.

So, I guess I’ll just have to wait for Day #600 to let you know what’s going to happen. 

With maybe a preview a little before then.

BEEattitude for Day #587:

Oh please, if not daily then every couple of days of 'staying in touch' - I've loved every single one of your blogs. It's almost like 'visiting' a neighbor or relative and 'catching up' on what happens the day or night before. Am looking so forward to the new website too. And yes, the updates on the fire academy class is a MUST!

Please please don't quit! I so love your beeattitudes and visit often to get your take on things. I hope this has become such a habit now that you find you must continue. I know that's not what you had in mind when you began, but hope you'll continue your wonderful musings. We are reading.

@ Sopralto: Thank you! It's so good to hear from you. One problem with this blog is that the structure makes it hard for people to comment (or, for that matter, to join as a follower), so if I do continue, it will be on a different blog format -- through my new website. I'll let you know when that's up and running -- I'll blog about it right here!

In the meantime, I appreciate your support and encouragement.
