Hello, Cleveland!

Well, not Cleveland. No offense.

It has been five years, a month and thirteen days since I last posted on BillyBlog.

I noticed the second to last post is full of broken links. Welp.

Why am I here?

Yesterday, while on the bike - yes, I still do that - I ran over an Ace of Hearts, and it had me thinking of my 52-card pick-up game. I grabbed it. An Ace from Mount Airy Casino & Resort! Cool! But, alas, not as cool as the Pirate! card from 2010. Into the recycling it goes.

Will anyone even notice if I post here?

SEO for this page has long been in the crapper.

But, I'm still alive.
