Happy 'middle of the night', folks! Hehehe!

What??? It's not like you didn't know that I never sleep if I can help it! Don't look so surprised! How do you think I keep all of this stuff running as not-so-smoothly as I do??? It doesn't come from a good night's rest, I guarantee it!

Anyway, I can't stay long!! I'm still trying to answer emails at the moment, and I'm sorry if I haven't gotten back to you yet. I'm working on it. Promise! Also, the finished chapters are now being posted on the site as well as on nifty! That includes the newest chapter of "Billy Chase" that was just posted a few hours ago! So check it out, and let me know what you think! K? I always love hearing from you guys.

February 15, 2019: Imagine Magazine #45 Has Gone Live!!!
Posted by Comicality

https://imagine-magazine.org

Happy 15th of the month! And also, a belated Happy Valentine's Day greeting, directly from me to you! Whether you're with someone special, or just take some time to love yourself...never stop! Love is the one inexhaustible resource that we have. So give as much of it away as you can while you're here! K?

Anyway, a brand new issue of Imagine Magazine is now available for you guys to dive into if you're a fan! We have some goodies waiting for you over there! Also, new additions to your new fave stories! New stuff from MrM, Lindon Weztser, Beldro Mercier, Jules Porter, and The Story Lover! If you guys get a chance, please take a moment to send them a comment to let them know that you're reading! You have no idea how much of an adrenaline shot that is for a writer's inspiration! :)

Also, a special treat this month...our featured author, Juju, has posted the first chapter of his new story, "Duncan: Out Of Exile" in this new issue! Juju is the youngest author we've featured to date. At only 15 years old, I can tell you that he's highly intelligent, articulate, and creative. Not to mention quite 'bold' when he needs to be! Hehehe! So check out his first chapter, and our one-on-one interview about his writing process directly after!

Also, expect your usual collection of articles from me, personally, a brand new chapter of "Shelter", writing tips, fun facts, and a glimpse into the 'Gay Like Me' section on the ComicalityShack Youtube channel...where there is an entire archive of short gay teen films just waiting for you right NOW if you want to check them out!

As always, HUGE thanks to everyone who took the time to submit their work and their time and energy into helping us make, yet ANOTHER, successful issue of Imagine Magazine! It's been over six months now since the reboot, and we're going stronger than ever! So thanks to all of our content creators, and big thanks to Jeff and AC and everyone who helps to put the finished product together and having it look so awesome in time for posting!

((Hugs)) All around! I love you! And I'll seezya you soon! 

Hehehe, keep a close eye on the site this week! Just...ummm...just sayin'. >:P

February 8, 2019: My Only Escape 28
Posted by Comicality

I have to keep this super quick, as I have to work extra hours this week because...dumb people get fired. Ugh! Which punishes us all, trying to cover their responsibilities for them. BUT, that'snot going to slow me down at all! What can I say? I'm in a champion mood this week! ::Giggles::

Alright, first things first...a brand new chapter of "My Only Escape" has just been posted on the site! So check it out when you get a chance, and let me know what you think when you get a few seconds of breathing room. K?

HUGE thanks to you guys for giving me support and feedback and emails, sharing abusive stories of your own. I can't tell you how much it means to me to be this 'exposed' to you all, and having you embrace me regardless. It can be tough sometimes, but as I reach the final chapters of this series...I can honestly say that I'm glad that I was able to hare this with you all. And I have no regrets. It's a part of my life that I would finally love to put to rest...and your love and respect has been instrumental in making that happen. So thank you for that. You've made me a better man for it. And I hope this story does the same for others who have been through the same.

(The Shack Voy Forum)

BIG thanks to you guys who have contributed personal donations to the paypal.me/comicality! Every penny counts, and I am eternally grateful to know that you guys support the site like this! Thank you!

Alright, then! I've gotta run! Life is calling! :P

Have fun with the new chapter! More to come! And I'll be working to finish up Imagine Magazine's February issue this weekend! So keep an eye out for that on the 15th! And if any of you guys want to send something in for the March issue...contact me at Comicality@webtv.net so I can get you a spot!

Gotta run! I have tomorrow off from work, but I'm on a "Punisher" Netflix binge right now! LOL! So be patient with me! It's sooooo good! I LOVED the first season! But season two? JESUS!!! Hahaha!

January 1, 2019: Hapy new Year! 2019!!!
Posted by Comicality

A swift note today to wish you a happy new years morning! And I wish you guys all the blessings that 2019 has to give!

Don't waste a single minute on sorrow, hatred, or complaining! Let's all make this year of moving forward and finding joy in the life we've been blessed with! K? Quit being miserable! LOL! There is so much to be happy about! Find it, and make it yours!

I have been spending a LOT of time with my family lately these past two weeks, and it has been absolutely amazing! I had a lot of fun! Believe me! But I didn't forget my duty to the rest of guys, k? I'm answering as many emails as I have time for, I've been on the boards, I've been writing an entire HORDE of new chapters for you guys to enjoy, I'm working on more writing tips for GayAuthors, finishing off stuff for GayAuthors Premium, finishing off my submissions for Imagine Magazine's January issue...I even found some time to drop by the Chatterbox Chatroom a few times to talk to you guys directly! So, I've been a busy bee, to say the least!

Obviously...I've only got so many hours in a day, and I can't be everywhere at once...but I'll be damned if any of you say that I didn't try! LOL! So I hope to talk to you guys soon!

That being said, my 'Christmas Celebration' is now gonna have to be a 'New Year's' celebration! Because...family and such! Hehehe! But, no worries! I'm starting right now with the original plan! Cool?

A brand new chapter of "Billy Chase" was posted on the site about an hour ago! And this is almost a TRIPLE SIZED chapter!!! So I hope you guys enjoy it! And let me know what you think when you get a few free seconds away from youtube cruising! ::Giggles::

(Go To: The Shack Forum)

We're not stopping here, of course! So stick around, and I'll seezya later on tonight! Cool?

Love you lots! And thanks for supporting the site! I'll be around to thank you, personally, soon! I just need to make sure everything is nice and polished first! Coo? Seezya then!

December 30, 2018: Happy Holidays!!! :)
Posted by Comicality

I truly hope that you guys had a good time over the holidays! I certainly did! So I've been smothered in family for the last day or two, and will be again this coming weekend! BUT...I haven't been lacking in my Comsie work! I've been putting together some sweet presents for you all over the past few weeks! And it's time to start our celebration tonight! :)

Let me start off by saying that our weirdness with Imagine Magazine has been fixed. It only took a few hours, but everything is secure and in working order again! So drop by and read the stories and articles whenever you like! Cool?

(Go To: Imagine-Magazine)

A brand new chapter of "Jesse-101" has been posted to kick off our Shack Out Back holiday celebration! So dive in and check it out when you get a
chance, and let me know what you think! Now, I can only post one chapter every 8 hours or so, but keep checking back! Because there is MUCH more to come! Hehehe, Merry Christmas!

(Go To: The Shack Forum)

Big thanks to you guys who donated to the Comicality Paypal account for the holiday season! (paypal.me/comicality) ((HUGZ)) Every penny counts, and I LOVE you so much for helping my Christmas be a little bit brighter this year! You guys are the best!

I've gotta run! But more is coming in a few hours! So keep your email open and your eyes glued to this space! Hehehe, we've got a party going here! And this is just the beginning! Enjoy!

Seezya soon!

December 26, 2018: Celebration! :) But a few tidbits first!
Posted by Comicality

I hope you guys had an awesome holiday season! I certainly did! And had a blast with my family yesterday! As you guys know, I was always in Chicago...so I was usually hundreds of miles away from the biggest part of my family for the holidays, unless we made the exhausting road trip to come down and visit for a week and then take another trip back home. But this year, everybody is here. And it was a LOT of fun! So I definitely enjoyed
myself!

Anyway, we've got a week long holiday celebration to power through! And it's starting today! I worked extremely hard on it these past three or four weeks, so I hope you guys like the new chapters! And please let me know what you think when you get a chance!

MANY new stories are coming your way over the next couple of days! So get ready for some good feels and some drama sprinkled in for good measure! All of these can be found on the site, and on the Comicality Library!

(The Shack Forum)

Also, I've sent off another flurry of emails this morning! So, if you've been waiting to hear from me, check your inboxes! I was tied up with family yesterday, but I spent as much energy as I possibly could on emails last night. It was Christmas, so I can do better...but I made an effort to get back in touch with as many of you as I possibly could. K? And I'll do more tonight! I just need to rest my typing fingers for a bit. LOL! My palms cramp up when I do too much at once. You have no IDEA how much that hurts! Owwww! But I'm working on it. Promise!

HUGE thanks to those of you who sent in donations to the Comicality Paypal account as a Christmas gift! You guys are SO damn cool for that! Thank you! You make everything I do online worthwhile! And you inspire me to work even harder to make sure that the stories are up to standards, every single chapter. Thank you!

(paypal.me/comicality)

One other thing before I leave you guys alone...

There has been a tiny hiccup with the server that hosts Imagine Magazine, and it happened on Christmas Day! So getting a tech involved to help out
wasn't really an option. Now, when I say 'tiny'...I really do mean 'tiny'! Basically, there were updates happening online, and they sort of screwed up the security measures that were put in place to ensure everyone's privacy, depending on what browser you guys were using. So, there's some weird generic message that pops up about the site not being secure and people hacking your personal info and stuff. Ummm...no. LOL! That's not happening. The Shack doesn't collect, remember, or share, ANYBODY'S private info. No emails, no IP numbers...nada. It's just a random message that let's people know that the security measures we had in place haven't been updated since the server's been upgraded. So all of your info is totally safe, and the server is more secure than ever. That's just a blanket screen to let everyone know that there were a few hours where our hosts had to work on getting our fortress more fortified. Nothing more.

So, my apologies if you got some cryptic message about hackers and all that. LOL! Trust me...I'm not that important. So click away. And things will be back to normal today or tomorrow. It's just a matter of making sure that everything is in working order like it was before the update happened. K?

Speaking of Imagine Magazine.../*WOW!!!*/

(Imagine Magazine)

I saw the numbers for the individual hits and new visits to the site, and they were phenomenal! Thank you SOOOO much, you guys!!! The relaunch issue back in August was one of the biggest issues Imagine Magazine had ever had up to that point, with over 8 /THOUSAND/ visits from you guys! Things held steady through September and October...but the November issue blew August out of the water with a whopping 13 thousand PLUS visitors for that one issue! And December's issue is already half way towards beating /that/ record, with three weeks left to go! So MAJOR thanks to you guys who have been reading and commenting and supporting this project! I truly believe in it, and I am overjoyed that you do to! Big thanks to all of our writers and programmers who have submitted work and have worked hard to make this project a success! To Jeffsfort, and ACFan, and Beldro, and VampireMystic, MrM, Lindon Weztser, Owen Mendel, The Story Lover, Jules Porter, and MANY others who have stepped up and have been sending in quality material to make the magazine shine the way it does! It's because of you guys and your contributions that we're doing so well! So thank you for that!

And, of course, more people are always welcome to jump on board! Give me a shout at Comicality@webtv.net if you're interested in joining the ne Imagine family! We'd love to have ya!

Alright...that's it for now! I've got a week long celebration to publish for you all! Seezya soon!

December 2, 2018: Ooops...
Posted by JeffsFort

Hi everyone,

I was going to tiptoe off to bed and hope no one noticed that I found another mistake in posting past work on The Shack Mirror site. I might have been able to pull it off if it didn't affect True's Fandom and the Fort Family Community site though ;)

Anyway, Comicality posted a brand new chapter of "Unforgettable" and it is included with all the new postings of old work on the same story. So, if you have been following the story elsewhere, Chapter 22 is available now! If you have been following it on the Shack Mirror Site or True's Fandom... Chapters 8 through 22 are up and ready for a group of insomniacs to tackle. Enjoy...

November 27, 2018: *Left Without Words* Is Back! Enjoy! :)
Posted by Comicality

A brand new chapter has just been posted! So, if you're fans of Shane and Dimitry...then smile for me, K? And let me know what you think of the new chapter if you get a chance! I'd love to hear from you guys!

I've been answering a TON of emails lately, and I'm going to try to answer more tonight if I can swing it! :P So...if you sent me a note, expect an answer back soon! K? in the next few days if I can find enough time!

I appreciate every single word, and if you're going through hard times, I will do what I can to be there for you. People will tell you...that's kinda my 'thing'. But it takes time! So please bear with me for a while longer. I'm still recovering from the flu and the Thanksgiving holiday! I still want to help...but I've only got so many hours in the day to work with, just like everybody else. So...if YOU couldn't do it, yourself...don't expect me to have any secret way to do it either. K?

But I'm trying. I'm trying my /hardest/! That's as much as I can give, I hope that it's enough,

Enjoy the new chapter! And I hope to seezya soon!

Come by the Shack forum if you get a chance! I'm finally able to get back to being 'me' again! Hehehe! Movies, music, games, and just random silliness! Introduce yourself and join the party!

November 25, 2018: Gone From Daylight: Appearing For Black Friday!
Posted by Comicality

I hope you guys had a good holiday! :)

I most certainly did! Despite me being really nervous about having it at my house this year, and a last minute battle with the flu...everything went to plan! It was GREAT! Everybody had a blast, the food was delicious, it was awesome to see all of the family together at once...it was just perfect! I LOVED it!

Anyway, I didn't think I was going to have to work on Friday, but...I did. And I came home wanting nothing more than to sleep off some of the exhaustion leftover from Thursday! Hehehe, but that doesn't mean the show won't go on! A brand new chapter of "Gone From Daylight" went up for 'Black Friday'! So check it out when you get a chance and let me know what you think! K?

(Click here to go directly to the chapter!)

I am SO happy that you guys enjoyed the November release of Imagine Magazine this month! Yay! It feels good to know that you are enjoying the content and are submitting more material of your own to be included! (https://imagine-magazine.org/) The December issue is already underway, and then it's on to more monthly issues for 2019! So if any of you guys want to submit some work of your own and join the party...let me know at Comicality@webtv.net and I'll be sure to save you a spot somewhere! K? Hehehe, come have fun with us! We're building quite the army over here! :P

Also, thanks to all of you guys who grabbed some of my ebooks this month! Wow! Hehehe, there have been some surprises over the past few weeks in terms of sales, believe me! THANK YOU!!! And if you haven't gotten a copy of the newest "Savage Moon: Unleashed" ebook, be sure to nab one at your earliest convenience! Cool? New ebooks are coming soon! So expect a few to pop up before the end of the year! (https://imagine-magazine.org/store/comicality/)

Alrighty...I'll leave you to your reading and stuff now! Enjoy! I hope to seezya soon!

PS- Sorry about the lapse in emails. The holiday took a lot out of me this week. I'll get back to you guys as soon as I can! K? Hehehe, don't start feeling all self conscious on me. I HATE sleep...but I have to sleep, regardless. It's a part of my survival. LOL! But, I'd get around it if I could. I swear!

November 21, 2018: Apologies to the Community
Posted by JeffsFort

Hi Everyone from the new Mirror site to "Comicality's Shack Out Back"!

As you can clearly see, the new site is up and running at full speed and now even communicates news and new chapters to our family's hub at http://fortfamilyforums.com which is awesome. I realize that some of you (actually a decent number of you) found the site early on. To those of you who have been getting your Comsie fix in a retro-looking site early, I hope you are enjoying the experience. Sure it doesn't look exactly like the Shack of many years ago but as a fan myself, I was just hoping to bring back a little of the familiar aspects of the old site's character within our custom built story management system (SMS) designed by our own Akeentia. We would love to get some feedback from you all about what you think of this project. I had lots of fun mixing the old and new to create this mirror site and I hope you have as much fun exploring and reading some of the best literature on the web on it.

As for the apology, it appears as though I connected it to the community a day too soon as I have found a hand full of chapters that I missed. This means I will be adding them and yes, they will flood the community "New Chapters" feed a little.  Unfortunately, other projects knocked me off track a little with this site so I lost my place and will do my best to get it corrected today. Then we will be doing our best to keep the Fort Family posted when new work is made available. Remember, If you prefer reading on the Gay Authors forum, this can also serve as a reminder that you need to get over there to do some reading. Cool?

Ok, enough slacking... I gots work to do :)

*HUGZ* Have Fun!

November 19, 2018: Getting things back in order before Thanksgiving!
Posted by Comicality

Let me start off by thanking you guys for being so patient and understanding with me for the past week or two while I was struggling through a particularly nasty flu virus! UGH! I don't get sick very often, but when I do...I am the biggest baby! LOL! It's true. Any virus strong enough to take me down ends up being enough to have me bedridden and utterly miserable for DAYS!

So, if I seemed a bit 'absent' lately, that's just me trying to get myself back in order before the Thanksgiving holiday! it's actually at my house this year, and this is my first big family Thanksgiving. Well, I mean, at my place, that is. My mom and I usually had to drive for hours and hours to come visit family at someone else's house. But this time, it'll be here. And everything has to be spotless! And I've got things all cleaned up and ready for company. We've got a big family, so it should be fun!

Wish me luck!

That aside, I haven't been slacking too much on my 'Comsie-Work'. Promise!

Last week, I did post a massive, double sized, chapter of "Billy Chase"! And big THANKS to all of you guys who commented on it and sent love and support for the new addition! So be sure to go and check it out if you haven't seen it yet! K? You won't want to miss it!

Also, THANK YOU for the feedback on the newest chapter of "Savage Moon", and for the huge surge in purchases at the Comicality ebook section! You guys are incredible! I'm so grateful! Thanks! I hope to make you proud in the weeks to come! And thanks for the new subscribers to the Youtube account as well! We are creeping towards 600 subs now! So be sure to share it with your friends! I'm kinda anxious to see how many folks will join in now! Keep 'em coming!

Also, I am posting a new 'Daydream Short' story on the Library in a few minutes! It's called "Naughty Click", and it is the short story for the November issue of Imagine Magazine! Now, I know that we usually post on the 15th of every month, but the delay is 100% MY fault this month! K? I've been trying to get stuff in order and I screwed it all up by trying to do a million things at once. So, you guys can blame me on that one. BUT...I didn't expect the newest issue of Imagine Magazine to be up and ready quite so fast! But, as always, I'm in league with miracle workers who accomplish things MUCH faster than I can! So thanks to them for being Shack patriots on this one! MWAH!!!

The newest issue of Imagine is now live and online for your enjoyment! Just click here to check it out. New additions from VampireMystic, Lindon Westzer, Jeffsfort, and our featured author for the month of November, Jules Porter! So check it out, and let these authors know what you think when you get the chance! Cool?

That's it for right now! I'm playing catch up in a major way tonight, and there will be more coming your way this week! Cool?

Laters! And thanks again for tossing rotten eggs at me for being sick. Hehehe, trust me...I'd MUCH rather be talking to you guys instead.

Take care!

Posted by Comicality

...what day is it? Hehehe!

Almost Tuesday! Ok! Lost my bearings for a moment there! :P

I wanted to say hello and send some good vibes your way tonight! Thanks for being so patient with me while everything was getting that special Comsie polish that you've come to know and love from any of the new releases that come your way. I always make sure that I can give you the best that I've got, and nothing less. But it DOES take time, and I'm thankful to have you guys wait it out with me. You're the best!

SO...the newest issue of Imagine Magazine was released early this morning, and it is MASSIVE! This is the biggest magazine offering that we've had yet, and the issues to follow this one already have new talented authors lining up for 2019! I can't tell you how amazed and how HAPPY I am to see this project be such a success! Thanks to all of you guys who have been sending in submissions, sending in feedback and compliments, and all those who have been working behind the scenes to put it all together! This month was an exhaustive effort, to say the least! But it was SO worth it!

I can honestly say that this is one of the issues that I'm MOST proud of! It's everything I ever dreamed the online magazine would be and more! So don't miss out on the elaborate buffet that we've put out there for you guys to nibble on! Hehehe!

Big thanks to MrM, who was an absolute PATRIOT, with new material for this October issue! Also, chapter two of "Lincoln, The Family I Never Expected" from our newest author, Lindon Weztser! Check those out! Our featured author of the month is Owen Wendel! And he's written his own GFD vampire spinoff series, that will continue in future issues as well! So check out his story "GFD: Life Goes On", as well as my one on one interview with him about his writing and his plans for future chapters! 

All of these...plus this month's Daydream Short story, "Come Over", my favorite horror short films from 2017/2018, the usual 'feel good' Imagine articles, and much more! The magazine is in full swing now, and it's only going to get better from here on out! So if any of you guys want to jump in and be a part of this rapidly growing empire...drop me an email at Comicality@webtv.net so we can set you up with a spot! K? I'd be happy to see what you've got! We want to expose the world to as much new talent as possible! So if you're looking to add to your fanbase and get a spotlight on your story...say the word. And I'll see what I can do! K?

(As with every issue...there's a period of adjustment behind the scenes. So there may be a few glitches here and there over the next few days. But the experts at Imagine are working on them as you read this! So if anything seems a little bit off...just check back in a day or two, and I'm sure it'll be fixed by then. K?)

Also, HUGE thanks for the newest subscriptions to the ComicalityShack YouTube account!!! Yikes! We're getting thre or four new subscribers a WEEK now! Already at 552 subscribers! LOL...look out 'Pewdiepie'! I'm coming for ya! (Psh...shut down)

Anyway, check out the new Halloween issue of Imagine Magazine when you get a chance! Imagine-Magazine You won't be disappointed!

The revolution is here, ladies and gentlemen! And life is grand!

Gotta run! And I'll seezya soon!

Oh yeah...I'm having a scheduled public chat some time soon! I'd love to talk to you guys in real time more often! I just need to get my work
schedule and find a time where I can chat with you guys here in the States as well as overseas simultaneously. Which is a lot harder to figure out than you guys may think. But EVERYBODY is welcome to join! So keep an eye on your email to get the date and time! Let's get together and have some fun! :P

More emails are coming as well! I just need to get my head screwed on straight!

September 30, 2018: Notice to our Faithful Readers
Posted by JeffsFort

Hi Everyone!

I wanted to send out a quick notice to let you all know that as a part of our attempt to keep our hosted sites on fast, reliable, and up to date servers, we will be migrating our sites to brand new equipment with up to date software, including an upgraded operating system. We anticipate no operational downtime for our visitors but where we are physically moving, there may be a very short time where DNS servers may be pointing to the old server even after the new servers are brought online. 

If you were planning to do a marathon reading session, go right ahead as the only change that may be noticeable would be sites responding slightly faster than usual. By Thursday if you hear nothing from us then it will be back to business as usual for us behind the scenes and you will see progress return to normal. 

We will advise if this schedule changes as the request to greenlight the move is being placed tonight.

Here's to as many reliable years on newer equipment.

September 17, 2018: Happy Sunday, folks!
Posted by Comicality

I'm not going to drag this out for too long, as I'm having a few problems with power outages on my end. Small ones, nothing major. And my laptop battery keeps working, but my router and internet connection vanishes on me, which means lost work and wasted time. Luckily, we only got lightly 'brushed' by the effects of Hurricane Florence, but it still makes for a messy weekend. Best of wishes to our Shackers in Florida and the Carolinas who had a much more severe experience with the storm. Be safe!

Yesterday was September 15th! And, as you know, the 15th of every month brings you a brand new issue of the Shack's online magazine, 'Imagine'! I certainly hope you guys enjoyed the new additions, articles, and stories, for the month of September! (We're getting better at this! Hehehe!) So jump in whenever you like, and feel free to let me know what you think at Comicality@webtv.net when you get an opportunity! All of the usual suspects are included in this issue, including a fabulous new series by this month's featured author, Lindon Weztser called, "Lincoln, The Family I Never Expected"! Followed by an interview that goes in depth into the story's theme and creation, and what you guys can look forward to next! Welcome to the Imagine family, Lindon!

Also, brand new chapters of "The Seashell", "Predators: 9-14-9x", and "Brandon Smiling"! (I made a mistake with the 'Brandon' chapter, but I will get that fixed up as soon as possible! But if you haven't read the series yet, use this time to catch up! Hehehe, it'll be worth it!) Coming up next will be our special 'Halloween Issue', which I'm really excited about! Some people go crazy for Valentine's Day, others for Christmas...but me? I'm a Halloween junkie! All the way! So turn the lights out on October 15th, and look for more Imagine craziness to come!

As ALWAYS...Imagine Magazine is looking for more submissions, short stories, series, articles about everything to LGBT youth, to movies and music, to book reviews, or anything that you can offer to help us out with the effort! We'd LOVE to have ya jump on board! So drop me an email and let me know what you've got to show me! Cool? ((Hugz)) In advance!

Also, this month's short Daydream story, "We're Not Telling", has just been posted tonight as well! So definitely give it a look, and leave a comment if you can! Expect a new short story of young love, infatuation, and experimentation, with every monthly issue! And huge thanks for the compliments and feedback that you guys have given me so far! Love you lots for it!

Alright, I'm going to get out of here before the lights blink out on me again! Hehehe! But take care! I love you all! And it's good to be back in touch! Seezya soon!
