Your Host Returns!

Healthy again!

Hello, my friends! I'm back! My belly has some gnarly surgery scars and I lost 30 pounds, but I'm healthy and strong again, and (hopefully for good) cancer-free! I'll need some chemotherapy but I expect to be around for a long time now. Maybe later I'll write about my ordeal (elsewhere, not here).

So, I'll let you all know who won the previous challenges this week. I'll be back each Monday with new challenges and hopefully something extra soon. I'm back at the computer and back to the drawing board.

I'll announce it officially tomorrow but so you have it now, last week's challenge (due next week) is favorite food and this week's challenge (due on the 17th) is flying machines (zeppelins, planes, gliders, etc.).

Thanks to everyone who emailed me. Sorry about not getting back to you, I will soon, I was just not ready to get back to the computer. But I'm back now!

To everyone that's asked to join since I've been gone, I'll be inviting you all this week so watch your inbox. If you don't get an invite by the end of the week, email me again.

I'll have more tomorrow. Let's draw!

Great news Mike! So glad you came through your surgery fine and best of luck with the chemo - we're all pulling for ya! ^-^

Yea! How great is this? You're back and sounding quite spunky. I know we all checked to see if you were all better. Sounds very good. Good luck on the chemo. Drink wheat grass drinks from your local health drink store. I've talked to several people-my sister included-that said it gave them the strength they needed to get through it all. My sister even worked as a faux painter throughout the ordeal. Check with the dr. first, I'm sure you would.
