if you lived round here ’bouts, they would say, “dave’s got sprang fever, he’s went out mushroom hunting and won’t be back till he’s well over it and back in his own mind, somebody else better be a doin’ the chores fer now”
To me, though, seems you have painted yourself into a corner of polite obligation, by answering your comments so faithfully and kindly. That is wonderful and refreshing for your dear readers, but sometimes it turns the faucet on a little faster than the spring box is filling up.
Just wait till it gets warm enough were you are to go barefoot again, you will be all renewed, energized and gloriously generous again!
