On this day I read the story My Dad's Coming Home Today , by Scribe 1971. It is a powerful and evocative piece.

Dear Readers,

Fall Back GIF

Yup folks, it's that time again, time to get back on track with the Natural Time, so set your clocks back tonight when you go to bed. The cows will be happier now! Don't forget to write your Congresspeople to end the abomination called Daylight Saving Time, which saves nothing.

Please take the time to email the authors of the stories that you read, authors need to hear from you, authors are still leaving the Net and only we can stop them with our emails.

Happy reading,

October 20, 2019: Internet Issue With Our Sites
Posted by The Story Lover

'Goos'

Dear Readers,

We are aware of there being network issues in the US from Ohio east that are causing timeout issues accessing multiple sites in the Fort Family. This is an Internet issue, not a server issue, so there is nothing that we can do but wait it out. If you are having issues, please be patient while the Internet fixes itself. Thanks,

Take care,

TSL

The result of the questionnaire will only be shared with the Fort Famil Admins, and no one else. 

If anyone else would like to take the questionnaire just send me an email to Questionnaire.

Thanks,
