Thanks from Carolyn and her ol’ man for the anniversary wishes, everyone.

Not enough time in a day for a person as self-important as I. Been having some breathing problems when I lie down so I will visit the heart doc today. I’m sure tests will follow over the next week or so. Being old is crappy; being old and crippled is crappier; being old, crippled, and having heart problems is crappiest. Could be worse; I could lose my sense of humor … or (gasp), my good looks!

Just bought a Nook book written by Albert Brooks. I generally don’t do celebrity stuff, but this one seems to be different enough to warrant a look; most critics and readers like it. The tome is titled 2030: The Real Story of What Happens to America. Amazon has a Kindle version plus the normal archaic, horse-and-buggy, old fashioned paper-page kind.

Have a reasonably good Thursday!

Tomorrow

Tomorrow will by our 47th wedding anniversary and for me, it has been a heck of a learning experience. For instance, just today I was told by my bride that a month has 90 days. This may be true and I have no surefire way to prove otherwise; when a woman speaks, calendars, clocks, and the cosmos be damned. I merely filed the information away in the long-term memory banks of my brain; my built-in random access memory is crammed full of many facts such as this and I feel no disturbance in the Force when a profound idea is uttered.

On Saturday, Carolyn picked her first pepper from the plants she has husbanded so carefully; today she got two more along with her first cucumber. She received much praise from me and if Allah exists, he too should have given her a pat on the back.

Dr. Anderson’s sinus treatment seems to have worked once again; although the sinus passages are still blocked most of the time, the infection seems to be gone and I am feeling a bit better. Modern medical science is a wondrous thing but please, do not try any of my cures for anything on another human being including yourself.

Have a Tuesday, my lovely friends.

I’d Love To Change The World

There was a big Vietnam Veterans get-together and to-do in Johnson City Saturday. It is about time these men and women who served so unselfishly are getting some of the recognition they should have had 40 years ago. Of course, the Rolling Thunder motorcycle club thundered into town on their Harleys and such, I used to have great respect for the organization, but too many militants have taken over and the club has become excessively politically right-wing to the point that if you disagree about our troops being in Afghanistan or Iraq they accuse you of being unpatriotic. Same old Republican bullshit which has sustained that party for many years. Shame and Fear–and in the case of certain motorcycle clubs–Intimidation.

Ashley just called and Carolyn is on the way to once again take her to emergency room; pains and bleeding again. She is 38 weeks so the baby could come at any time now and be a normal-term brat.

Another false alarm!

I have been sick for the past week; sinus. Last night I was up until wee hours waging the good fight; at 6:00 this morning I finally got enough clearance to catch a few winks of sleep. I am up now and once again kicking ass and taking names with the snot brothers. I’m spraying hydrogen peroxide up my nose twice each hour; I understand that most sinus infections are surface bacterial types and I’ve successfully used this treatment in previous bouts with the malady. I just don’t want the mucous building up in my lungs and causing pneumonia … again.

Happy Worshday, my friends.
