the wanderer returns

let's just draw a veil (again) over the last month or two.
drag that big, old, dusty harp out of the cupboard and get that woman to run her delicate fingers deftly up and down the strings  with that strange music which signifies the passage of time.

and then we shall move forward.

unfortunately, i can't explain my absence because it's top secret, involves undercover work for the FBI, CIA, MI5 etc.
and, frankly,
you wouldn't understand.
if i told you then of course i'd have to kill you and i have come to like you very much. 
so try not to ask.
you don't really want to know.

but let me just say this.
i've missed you.

this morning i fired up the computer after i macheted away the massive overgrown tangle of vines and weeds which had so quickly consumed it. 
i brushed off the cobwebs and clicked on my blog to see if it was still there.

and it was.

sigh of relief.

so i clicked on the first link on my sidebar which just happened to be this one.

i read the last five or six posts on there, as i haven't even been able to read o.p's blogs during my undercover mission of the last month or two.
(i can tell you this, my cover was that i was a middle aged woman who didn't know anything about the world wide web and such things as blogs. and that's all i can tell you, so don't push me.)

so then after i'd read the last few posts on this blog i realized i was chuckling out loud.
LOL-ing in fact.
and it's been a while!
and i was thinking of leaving a comment to say how much i'd enjoyed those posts.
but then,
i thought
i'd have to come out and blow my cover.

but THEN i realized/remembered
my mission was over!
and in fact my mission was accomplished.
and i could now
to my former identity.
aka clippy mat

it's been hard to shake off the alter ego.
i became so immersed in that character.
she's an all consuming kinda creature.
i will just tell you this.
that blog and those posts cracked me up.
and i realize what i've been missing.
i decided to write this.

i hope to be able to stick around for a while.
unless i'm needed somewhere else.
you never can tell in my line of work.

Well, wherever you have been and whatever you have been up to, I am sure you missed us as much as we missed you. I hope you can stay around awhile, but if you are called to duty again, hurry back.
