2020 update (So far overdue it isn't even funny....)

Dear Friends, Readers, Fans, Followers, and Fellow Patriots of Bongolesia...

On behalf of His Excellency, President-For-Life P'hat Daddee B'wonah, I send you all greetings.

And on behalf of myself here, I owe you all a serious apology.
For the last two and a half years (almost), this poor little blog has languished in obscurity. It's not that I have abandoned it. It is just that due to circumstances in my life that have happened since 2018, I have been essentially unable to do much of anything with our beloved 15mm Third World African Hell-Hole.
Between some health issues in 2018, and losing my job in 2019, I thought that was going to be the end of it. However in July of last year I had a simple, yet stupid accident which resulted in a nasty injury. As a result of this, I spent the last six months of last year in a wheelchair while my right leg decided what it wanted to do with itself. Jan and Feb of this month was spent in physical therapy re-teaching my right leg "How to walk again". Also during all of this time, I decided to step back from social media for a good bit. I needed to rest, reorganize, and heal, (both inside and outside).
Despite the quietness of this blog, I have kept Bongolesia alive on social media with it's own government Twitter account, a government Facebook page, and a page dedicated to Bongolesian gaming.
But they are not the same as the blog, and I really need to get back to it.
But I am going to ask you to be a patient just a bit longer.
My wife and I are in the process of moving and doing so are moving into a new house. If we are lucky enough to get this one, I will finally have a dedicated gaming room. This winter I mean to actually set up the complete Bongolesian city of Sudekia and Port Tuziak and get photos of them for intelligence and recon purposes.
AND...we will get back into gaming in our little world.
All I ask is that you not lose faith, and keep President B'wonah close to your heart, as he does all of you...
More to come as the time comes and it happens.
Yours Truly,
Michael T. Murphy
