Missing a Friend
Apparently it's not just men that I talk to on the phone all the time but have only met once in real life that I get too attached to. I get attached to my blog friends, too. I know it's insane, but even though I haven't met you guys in person I feel like you're truly my friends. Some visit daily, some weekly, some every now and then...just like friends in the real world.
While I was traveling, I rarely posted and visited your blogs even less. If you didn't leave a comment on one of my infrequent posts, I may not have visited yours at all. I did miss you guys and am trying to get back to them all.
On my previous breaks, it was always Buffalodick who would post comments asking where the hell I was. He didn't this time. I thought maybe he finally gave up on me. A few days ago, I went to visit his blog and saw a message from his son that he had passed unexpectedly. What? When? How? W H Y ? ? ? !!!
He was one of my first and one of my most loyal followers. I don't think there were many posts he didn't read and comment on. I miss my blog buddy.
