‘Where you at, George, where you at?’

Hello everybody. I hope that 2020 finds you in better shape than 2019 left you in, or at least that you are managing decently.

It’s time for a little update as to where I’ve been, and why I’ve been silent some three-and-a-half months after my mother’s passing.

At the present moment, the aunt and I still have a couple of estate-related issues to deal with, but the progress has been slow-going due to the simple fact that I’m dealing with a partner who is both 77 and faces multiple autoimmune issues.

Along those lines, after the better part of a year-long battle, Aunt Annie has been approved for Medicaid, and that decision is of interest to TMR.

As a result thereof, we’re now in the process of getting me compensated for being Aunt Annie’s full-time caregiver. Being able to pay some of the household freight ==> being able to dedicate at least part-time focus to the blog.

I still may have to get a part-time job to help support the household, but being able to find a position that affords me screen time instead of grocery-bagging time (not that there’s anything wrong with that) behooves you and me both.

Long story long, right now, my living and work situations are up in the air, and it’s going to take another month-to-six-weeks (hopefully) to get things sorted out with Adult Services and the State of Michigan.

When there’s some sort of certainty as to what’s going on, I sure miss covering the Wings, Griffins and prospects, I sure miss the work, and I sure miss talking with all of you.

The last four months have been spent working hard to resolve mom’s estate, to help Aunt Annie get healthier, and to navigate grief and loss, all while dealing with financial strain.

I hope that at least partially resolving the last part of that equation will afford me the privilege to work for you again.

I'm starting The Malik Report as a stand-alone site, hoping that having my readers fund the website is indeed the way to go to build a better community and create better content.

  1. Good to hear from you!!! Many Wings Fans are hoping for a job to open up with th Wings, how does Coach Malik sound,LOL

    Really this is a Good year to miss, last place in th bag but Buttman will find away to drop us to 4th pick.

    I used to be an Estate Administrator, all were timid sheep before the Will is known, when beneficiaries are given their share, they turn into wolves . Short career experience. In reality they can take a long time.

    Hear from you whenever you are ready!

  2. Thanks George, good to know where your at. This season is a good miss anyway…but its real hard without you.

  3. We miss you, but we understand as well. The best to you and your family. When I go to Haiti, I will see if I can work on getting some good Ju Ju and get the Wings the right ping pong ball. Until then we wait and watch for other good things.

  4. I check in every day. Do what is most important. At least this season is not one to really say much about anyway LOL.

    1. Good point, GH.
      IMO, this year’s team has little-to-no SY signature and, in fact, is a testament of KH ineptitude in the cap-era.
      Next year begins the SY era with an SY signature beginning to emerge. It should be fun commenting, assessing, and hopefully wining (vs whining).
      Let the fun begin! 🙂
