There are no descriptions that I've found capable of really expressing the past few years.

None.

And, today, it appears that there is still a lot of ground to cover along this particular stretch of road.

In time... WAY in the future... I may try to find some words that do explain it. For now, I'm drained and frustrated and... honestly... I just want to grab on to something in the chaos that I can control.

So, let's get back to work (as much as we can).

Look around the site. Catch up on the archived material. Enjoy the new stuff that's coming.

Invite your friends to visit. Live and follow and retweet and share Backpackville posts on social media.

I'd appreciate that.

One thing in closing this month's introduction...

Thank you!

Thank you for the consideration and support. I've received a lot of messages and kind thoughts during these challenges, and I will never be able to tell you how much it means.

Tell your family and friends you love them. Take a moment to enjoy that one extra hug. Cherish it all.

I wish you the best... nothing but the best... stay safe, and keep smiling.

It's the monthly newsletter... featuring at least two essays each month (with one taking a bow exclusively in A Parkside View).

If you would like to receive each edition...

* To sign up, send an e-mail asking to be added to the distribution list. (Or, if using one of our pages on social media, a message will work.)

* It is distributed by e-mail. Along with a short announcement in the body of the e-mail, a PDF file of the newsletter is attached.

We have some exciting plans for A Parkside View, and hope you'll be a part of this project by receiving it each month, and by sending along your feedback and suggestions for it.

99-cents... 99-cents... 99-CENTS!!!

All of Bob's published titles are available in print and Kindle editions. And... right now... ALL of them are available for Kindle and the Kindle app at a price of 99-cents.

(GREAT side note... all of Bob's books are also part of the Kindle Unlimited program. And that means some of you could be reading Bob's books for free.)

Should learning more about Bob's writing be of interest to you -- and if it is, THANK YOU -- use this link...

Local Friends for Local Business

Quick pause in the organized stuff for this program... the effort to support community treasures will be back in February 2022.

While you wait, get out their and visit your neighborhood small businesses.

As a bit of a bonus, there are a couple of pages over at Facebook that we'd like to nod in the direction of...

Time Just Drifts Away -- A page at Facebook for Bob's published and professional writing efforts.

Muddy Paws and Puppy Love -- A fun page on Facebook where we celebrate Lady, Travis, Molly and Gus... along with their friends (and ours).

We would be incredibly grateful if you took a few minutes to check out some of these pages. (And if you have a Facebook and/or Twitter account, our on-going appreciation and ever-lasting gratitude goes along with every "Like" or "Follow" you add. (So you'll have that going for you.))

(Thank you!)

We are tremendously grateful for your time and consideration, and appreciate your comments and feedback.

If you can, please send along an e-mail and let us know what you think of things around here. A lot of work goes into the material that gets posted on this web site and the process of tidying up content, and if you spot something that you particularly like... or something you believe we might be able to do a bit better... that information is always welcomed by us.

Have a great month folks... and thank you again for all of your attention and visits.

Dearest companions and supporters since the beginning of the site... proud to call them family...
