It’s been 4 months now since Stephanie went away. At this point, it’s pretty much a given that she won’t be coming back.

So what happened to her? Where is she?

Read on for the answer, without any euphamisms, jokes, or metaphors.

End Transmission

Posted 2017.12.04 15.25 in Uncategorized by Violet

The transmissions have been fading for a while now, becoming more sporadic, longer gaps in between posts.

As of November 16, 2017 we have lost track of Stephanie completely. She’s either hiding, or dormant, or maybe off on a long vacation?

Maybe she’s actually gone back to “Planet Stephanie”.

At any rate, none of us have been able to get through to her.

Consequently, we’re officially going to ‘end transmission’ here. If we ever do hear back from her, we’ll post it here. Otherwise… thanks for tuning in over the years.

Talking in metaphors here. Stephanie is not missing in the ‘speak to the police’ kind of way. It’s a metaphor. Chill.

Happy Canada Day

Halfway around the block from my house, in a little parkette, was this doe munching quietly on some leaves. She didn’t seem to mind the handful of us who stopped to watch and snap some pictures.

Remarkable.

For Valour

From the London Gazette, # 30903, September 16, 1918:

For most conspicuous bravery and extraordinary devotion to duty when in charge of a Lewis gun section in the front line trenches, on which a strong enemy raid was attempted.

During an intense bombardment Cpl. Kaeble remained at the parapet with his Lewis gun shouldered ready for action, the field of fire being very short. As soon as the barrage lifted from the front line, about fifty of the enemy advanced towards his post. By this time the whole of his section except one had become casualties. Cpl. Kaeble jumped over the parapet, and holding his Lewis gun at the hip, emptied one magazine after another into the advancing enemy, and, although wounded several times by fragments of shells and bombs, he continued to fire, and entirely blocked the enemy by his determined stand. Finally, firing all the time, he fell backwards into the trench, mortally wounded. While lying on his back in the trench he fired his last cartridges over the parapet at the retreating Germans, and before losing consciousness shouted to the wounded about him: ‘Keep it up boys; do not let them get through! We must stop them!” The complete repulse of the enemy attack at this point was due to the remarkable personal bravery and self-sacrifice of this gallant non-commissioned officer, who died of his wounds shortly afterwards.

Corporal Joseph Kaeble, a 25 year old mechanic from St. Moise Quebec, was posthumously awarded the Victoria Cross for his actions on the 8th of July, 1918. Cpl. Kaeble was one of over 60,000 Canadians to be killed during the ‘war to end all wars’.

Take the time on Rememberance Day to think about the peope who risked their lives and fought for our country and our freedoms.

Meh.

That’s how I feel. My leg is not getting better fast enough. It’s cold out. I’m unenthusiastic about everything.

Meh.

Can’t even think of anything that would cheer me up.

Cameras just remind me that I can’t walk around and take pictures.

I’m still burned out on electronics.

Fish and snails… burned me out last week. I forgot to blob about that. I did make a post about it though at Applesnail.net.

It’s a long weekend coming up. Thanksgiving. Not feeling very thanksful at the moment, though I realize that I do have a great many things to be thankful about.

Anyways, turkeys are annoying.

One Million…
