    So here's the link to mailbag for all the mailbag lovers: https://hubpages.com/literature/The-Wri … llment-386

    We love and appreciate you, Mr. Bill. Thank you so much for your kindness.

    Your thoughts echoes with mine: 'Live the hell out of today and remember, please do all things with love.'

    Sending Blessings to you, Sir!

      So glad the Mailbag continues! Bill, I'm happy you're feeling great and walking your dogs again. I have a three month old puppy now, and I'm walking her three times a day! She loves to socialize. It figures this introverted human would wind up with an extroverted canine. Take care!

        Oh my, a three-month old puppy! I'm exhausted just thinking about that much energy. I'm happy to hear you got a dog; may your puppy bring you years and years of joy!

      Thank you for posting the link, Misbah. I'm so disgusted with HP and I've been so busy with my own "rat killing" as my grandmother used to call it, that I didn't even open my feed yesterday. I read Bill's mailbag, and I'm so happy that he's decided to write more.

      Bill mentioned that he had a Facebook page. I don't recall knowing that. What name is it under? Please post that for us, Bill, as I would be honored to be your friend on Facebook. I read your blog a few times, and then it wouldn't let me sign in to comment. I don't know what happened, but as you say, once one can't interact, one loses interest. I love it that you are back. I'm happy that your new hip is working out very well. Just walk those dogs and be happy!

        MizB, thanks for jumping through the necessary hoops to comment. I really do appreciate it. I'm with you. I'm so pissed at HP right now, I can hardly think straight. Hopefully they will fix this mess they caused, but I'm not holding my breath.

        Facebook name will be in next Monday's Mailbag. Happy Thanksgiving, my friend.

    Misbah, thank you for sharing the Mailbag, and Bill, it is good that you have decided to continue it. I am sure you will receive enough questions by email to keep it going.

      Thanks a bunch, John!  We'll see if this works. If not, we move on to Plan B, whatever the heck that is. Take care, buddy.

    Bill
    I'm so happy to see you again. 
    My Monday morning is starting out right.
    As for HP, I can't figure out their game either.   
    The ability to comment is getting stranger instead of better, so I'm at a loss.  One would they would make it simple.
    The people on HP is what makes writing here so enjoyable.   I look forward to it, but HP is testing the water so to speak.
    I imagine you'll get a few emails, because we all missed your words greeting us.
    Three weeks & 2 miles...Unbelievable & Fantastic.
    Don't overdo it, but keep going.
    Take care

      Thank you Brenda! We shall see what we shall see, I guess.  In the meantime, we will do what we can to promote quality writing.  Thank you again, and blessings to you always.

    I was delighted to see your Mailbag. I am glad you are going to stay for the time being. I am certainly not happy about HPs recent decisions.

    This is not a place to write to earn money, as that is more lucrative on many other sites. I guess HP hasn't figure out how important the comments are to their authors.

    Thanks for your Mailbag today. Have a great week!

      I think it's funny, Pamela, that HP made a lot more money ten years ago than they do now.  You would think they would realize that all of the changes may not have been good for the site.  But what do I know? I'm just a lowly writer. smile

    Hi Bill glad to know you walked two miles with your pets, without a cane. Modem medicine is truly awesome. So happy to know that you will be continuing with HP. I always look forward to reading your articles. Can't imagine Mondays without the mailbag. Take care. Thanks Misbah for posting the link to Bill's article.

      Thank you my friend. I really do love my friends on HP. I'm just sorry that HP doesn't see value in interaction like we do.  Have a wonderful week ahead, my friend.

        So glad, Bill, you are back with your mailbags and to your usual schedule. Really happy to know you are recuperating fast. Thanks to modern medicine and technology. At least you will be here on HP for sometime. You really have been missed. Thanks for writing this mailbag.

        Misbah, thanks for posting Bill's article.

      Thank you so very much.  My creative journey seems to be detoured at the moment, but I'm confident it will return soon.

    Welcome back, Bill.  So glad to hear that you’re already back to walking the dogs.  It would be hard to imagine HubPages without you.  You’ve been here for my entire time on HP and we’re one of the first to welcome me to the community.

      This is my second home, Bill, and all of you my extended family. It's good to be back with you all. Happy Thanksgiving, my friend.

    Hi Bill,  I am so glad that we will have you staying here at HP, at least until your travels begin after Bev's retirement.  You both have much to look forward to in the days and years ahead.  Hopefully, HP will get the comments reinstated on all of our posts sometime soon.  Wishing you and all of our HP friends who celebrate Thanksgiving, a happy and joyous one!

      Thank you Peggy!  Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours, my friend. I would hate to leave HP, but they sure are making it hard on us old-timers to enjoy it anymore.
