Transmountain after the rains

thank you so much for taking the time to comment. currently, i am concerned with the conditions at the fort bliss national cemetery and will post an entry about this issue asap. unfortunately and fortunately, i am behind with my posts because i took my daughter back to college, and then my own graduate school semester began. what i hope is to post something later today.
