Has it been that long?!

October 13, 2012, that was the last post I made and it wasn't even that good.   I'm here, I'm still alive and I got some new parts this year!
 Yaah!  I had spinal surgery this past March and got the fun little titanium contraption above screwed into my vertebrae. Oh, got a new synthetic disk to go along with it too (although I was somewhat disappointed that he didn't use cadaver bone from a homicidal maniac criminal, it would have been such a good story to tell) .  It's really pretty neat and my doctor was the best and the Catholic hospital I was in was second to none.
It hurt like H E doublehockeysticks.   I'm in the middle of physical therapy and that isn't much fun either although the therapist is a great person and really compassionate and patient through my whining.
 Sporting a different look also, this is my handlebar mustache that I'm sporting.  This picture was from May so it's a tad bit longer now...and curls on the ends with the wax.  Yep, I'm going hipster.
Didn't do too much anything for Hallowe'en last year, it was such a bad year last year that I just couldn't make myself conjure up the effort to do it.   But the good thing is, I'm back and with 99 days to go, let the haunting begin!

See y'all soon...

Good to have you back. I'm just starting to feel Halloween-ish again after a long hiatus. Although I don't have a spiffy new 'stache or spinal contraption to show for it. :)

As someone who's had back surgery, I completely understand! Never fun, but in the end it's worth it.

Welcome back, dear heart! I've missed you!
