Episode 18 delayed

I certainly hope that I'm not sounding like a broken record.  Some of you may have noticed that the mid-month episode hasn't emerged.  I was knocked down by a bad and prolonged cold.  I'm finally feeling better, after a week, but am still snuffly, and sound rather gruff.  Things will be back to normal for June 1st, when episode 18 will come out.

thanks!

ETA: update:
No, I’m not lost at sea. I haven’t fallen off the edge of the Earth either. After getting over being sick, things have been pretty insane around here, what with preparing for and then getting our new gals (chickens!), and numorous last-month-of-school event for my boys. Even knitting has taken a back seat.
Anyhoo, I have a show all set up, but I need to find the time to sit down to record it. As the Summer Solstice is coming up next week, I’ll likely do a two parter, or do two shows back to back for early next week.
