And we’re back

Chris's new look

Chris’s new look

Well, not exactly back, I’m up in Portland, Maine, where I intend to hang out for a while – I’m now five minutes from John and family, instead of five hours, and that’s a better situation. I’ve been blessedly removed from the Greenwich real estate market for 9 weeks (and from Greenwich- hooray!) but I’ll soon get back on top of things and start blathering again, today or tomorrow.

    Welcome Back Dude! I have been sitting in from of my screen waiting for this moment for 9 weeks. I too now look like you.

    The world needs your astute observations, creative writing and comedic abilities.

    So my best to John and your fam.

    Pardon me while I go take a shower now.

    WOW, yay. Hello CF. Glad you’re up near John and family. xoxo

      Welcome back. I have lost count of the times I have checked your site for evidence of your re-emergence. You were profoundly missed. No doubt the issues that occupied you these past two months were of greater importance than the enlightenment and entertainment of your thousands of fans, yet we selfishly awaited your return. Yes, we are shallow and self-indulgent. But we need what we need. Good luck to you and your family.

    Hey! You’ve been sorely missed. Ditto what Cobber, Toonces et al said above. 🙂

    I didn’t know that Charlie Manson had the swastika tattoo removed from his forehead. Very PC of him, the old softie.

    And, welcome back…

    Been eagerly waiting since July 15 for your reemergence. Great to have you back. Best wishes to you and the family.

    Blessings to all and welcome back.

    Bozos everywhere rejoice! Welcome back and the best to you and the family.

  12. i thought maybe you’d found a new love interest down Portland Maine way:

  13. John M

    Welcome back! I thought perhaps you had run off to join the Donald’s campaign.

    Dude, I thought you left with Bernie’s or Walter’s wives and went on a shopping spree with that $50 billion dollars !
    Love, Walt

    Chris,
    The new pix is more becoming than the one with tin foil. Welcome back. I missed you and I was worried about you.

    Please keep us posted with events in Maine.

  16. Matt

    Good to have you back at the keyboard. Hope all is well with John and the rest of the family.

  17. Is it rue you are running for Selectman as Green Tea Party Candidate?
    Landslide prediction is making TH nervous!

    Great to hear from you and looking forward to reading your blog again when the timing is right.

  19. Mazama

    Congratulations on making some positive life changes.

    BTW, that Psycho-Hillbilly look never goes out of style.

    And while nobody will give you a second glance up in Maine, back in Greenwich nobody will have the nerve to mess with someone who looks like that.

    Chris,
    Welcome back sir. And happy to hear you are close to John. My very best wishes to the fountain clan.

  21. Great to see you back Chris and I think I’d rather be in Maine too.

  22. Accolay

    Welcome back! Glad to hear all is well with you and your family!

  23. Flash

    Home is always where the heart is…glad to know you’re home

  24. About time to have you back! Though Al Dente, and EOS, and Sarah, have done yeoman work holding down the fort and keeping your virtual family connected, it’s not the same. Give us some snark!

  25. GPD Folk

    I was wondering why it was so quiet around here! 🙂

    Good to see a post from you.

  27. Martha

    welcome back, you’ve been in our thoughts!

  28. Libertarian Advocate

    CF: Have you tried the WICKED GOOD chocolate sorbet I turned you on to yesterday????????? You really should. It triggers taste bud orgasms. So much so, you may not even care about the other kind anymore.

  29. Cos Cobber

    Is that blue shirt/white under shirt combo from Orvis or Vineyard Vines?

  30. Xyzzy

    Welcome back. Prayers with John and the rest of your family.

  31. amen

    I thought you would never return … I was beginning to follow Trump instead!

  32. Bad Hair Day

    Missed you very much. Love to all.

  33. Walt

    Dude –

    Glad to see you have resumed blogging!! I missed you. Not in a homo way. You homo. And not that you are actually any good at blogging, but I think you enjoy it. And that is important. Kind of just like a two year old doing finger paintings and pretending they are Picasso. It makes them bearable to be around.

    So, no matter what our problems are, we all need to take a break from them, and get our minds off of them, and not feel guilty about doing that. Or else you will drive those around you bat shit crazy. If they aren’t already are. Apple? Tree?? Comprendie Amigo? SPANISH DUDE!!

    Anyhows, I hope John is as well as can be. And how is my favorite little vixen Sarah? She is a real peach, and a trooper. I admire that.

    What do you do for fun up there? Watch the herds of mooses run through the woods? How is the road kill? Are you living in a lean to, dressed up in your boy scout uniform?

    I have so many more questions, and we have so much to catch up on. It’s too long a drive for brunch, but maybe we could do lunch? I hear Mane is famous for it’s burgers.

    Your Pal,
    Walt

    PS – I didn’t post anywhere else while you were on hyatu..heyatu…I didn’t post anywhere else while you were in Mane. And if I did, I would have poster anonymously. So no one knew it was me. And EOSr was great while you were gone. Not that I have ever read her blog.

    Welcome back.
    The Summer has just not been the same without you and Byram pool.

    Welcome Back.

  36. M

    It’s great having you back. And maybe it’s a relief valve, but don’t hesitate to keep the hiatus going. Life stuff trumps whatever we do here (I mean, I like it, but life stuff first!)

  37. Sarah Fountain

    What an awesome reunion! Love to all.

  38. Sound Beacher

    So good to hear from you, wishing the BEST to your family. Many news items have caused us to say….. wouldn’t CF have something great to say about that: Looking forward to your take, and your readers insights, on oh so many current even topics!!

  39. Anonymous Citizenette

    Welcome back…you and your family have been in the thoughts of many.

  40. Elizabeth Botvin

    Haha. Checked many times. Thoughts with you and your family.

  41. North St Owner

    Welcome back Chris, regards to John! Is Sarah re-opening the John’s Fund campaign? So close to getting to six digits! All the best from the Golden Triangle!

  42. Admirer of Chris

    Hey! I join others in delight that you have resurfaced and are well! I see that I am not the only one here who missed you – you have quite the following. You’re a witty, smart and talented man and we are all so grateful for your recovery and also for your past (and hopefully future) insights on this blog. Keep it up because you are terrific. Kind regards,

  43. AJ

    Toonces and Housecat are so happy they start dancing and singing the Cool for Cats song. Cool.

  44. Artie

    Must admit, I smiled when I saw my email. Hope you are all well.

  45. Georgie

    Welcome back! Its been too long to have someone with your sharp wit comment on events. My best to you are your family during this difficult time.

  46. Pete

    I don’t know if there is any significance, but there were 253 posts when you signed off and so far 47 upon your return.
    Welcome back

    • Libertarian Advocate

      That 250 was over several days between the time CF bugged out and he either turned off comments or WP did it for him. This post isn’t even 24 hours old.

  47. CatoRenasci

    Welcome Back! Just in time for FF to be the Democratic sacrificial lamb against il Tesei on the “history repeats itself as farce” ticket.

  48. Mickster

    Hey, you are a sight for sore eyes! LA just emailed me to say you were back. Stay busy (and strong!).

    Welcome back, you were missed
