Uh-oh

Recent delving into my ancestry
yielded a sobering discovery

Death runs in my family

It’s definitely genetic
Mom dad and brother
all came down with it
and not only that
It runs as far back
as I can track it
So
the big splash I was
set to make in 2128
will have to be slated
a bit sooner

      • Thanks for asking! It was quite the shaker! One of the biggest ones I’ve felt. Personally I have not been affected, other than it shaking the shit out of the house. But my mom lives in Homer and there is a tsunami warning there and a lot of places are closing up. Due to hit in a little over an hour. I live on a bluff so it won’t affect me. Earthquakes are a normal part of life here, but with the epicenter being right there at Anchorage…. that’s where most people in AK live, you know?
