"Sometimes you deserve a second chance, not because you weren't fabulous the first time but because the timing and circumstances weren't quite right. You just got overlooked."
-Carol Williams   

Does getting Featured here in The Rain sometimes feel like a roll of the dice? Not anymore. I'm always open to member suggestions on posts that should be Featured but somehow got missed. 

Giving deserving posts more exposure is what Second Chance Saturday is all about.  As you read blog posts during the week, be sure to tag me in the comment section of any post you wish to nominate as Feature-worthy.  Then watch for it in the next edition of Second Chance Saturday.

Carol Williams thanks, Carol... he's somewhat ahead of the curve in terms of physical recovery, but it's still a very long and slow process and he's still a good five to six weeks away from being able to bend or twist.

Hi Will Hamm 
My back is getting better but not as quickly as I'd like, of course.  Still quite limited on what I can do.
