I had two seizures brought on my Sleep Apnea back in 2014. I would stop breathing every 6 to 7 minutes. Always wondered why my wife would wake me up int the middle of the night and tell me to breathe!


Was off my job for six months on Short Term Disability Convalescence, but the suits at the corporation's office sent me a letter saying that being off longer than twelve weeks made me subject to termination. Tried getting my job back but no dice. Finally applied for my Social Security payments the following year. Had a couple of other jobs since then, some full-time while other were part-time.


Finally working as a part-time custodian at my local public library. Quite happy to be working again. I have a friend who is a few years younger than me (I'm 67 now) who had two light strokes, to moderate heart attacks and had triple bypass surgery.


Got into the writing kick back in December of 2018 when I got a kick to watch old sci-fi movies, both American and Japanese, from the 1950's. And things started to fall into place the following Spring. Finally got my eBook published this last summer, but only one sale. At least someone took a chance on it. Working on a Star Wars tale that has nothing to do with the Skywalker canon.


Had watched most of the episodes of 'Star Wars: Rebels' on the Cartoon Network. Loved it better than the Clone Wars. Filled that niche between the Clone Wars and the original Star Wars movie. Offered a better understanding of what a small group of rebels were trying to do in their part of the galaxy. And they left the end opened enough to add on a follow-up to it.


I still want to do that Willow Run story, but a lot depends on whether or not I get your blessing for it. Just hope you're getting better now.
