Here I Am!

I'm home, popping pills and grumbling.  Go to the physical therapist to be evaluated on Monday.  Go to the orthopedist for follow-up on Wednesday.  Should be a great week.   Thanks for all your interest and care.  It's much appreciated.

IN THE WEE SMALL HOURS OF THE MORNING ...

I called in like a good little patient and got my time to report for surgery in the morning.  Five A.M.  That's right, five A.M.  My surgery is scheduled for seven fifteen A.M.  That means we have to get up at two forty-five A.M. to be sure we have...

TRYING TO GET READY!

I'm trying to do things around the house now that I won't be able to do for a while after my surgery.  I cleaned my bathroom this morning and I'm washing a load of clothes now.   Tuesday, I'll change the sheets on my bed.   In the old days,...

Email message from my sister, the clever one.

I got another call from one of those credit card outfits.  I did the “You are currently caller #5, waiting to talk to an associate.  Thank you for your patience.”  Then I sang the theme to Jeopardy.  I did #3, then and sang, then I said, “How may I...

TRYING TO FOLLOW THE RULES

So I guess everyone knows by now that I'm having knee surgery next week.  A week from tomorrow, to be exact.  I was sent home from the orthopedic surgeon's office with a number to call to set it up.  I called, and soon thereafter I received a fat...

YES, I REALIZE ...

I know that this is how old people talk, okay?  I just couldn't resist the topic today.   I got online and ordered some things from the fat ladies' catalog.  I ordered two camisoles, three tank tops and three T-shirts and the bill was over...

I'm Off! (But we all knew that)

Off to the local hospital for blood tests and an EKG before my surgery next week.  I love having blood tests.  It's such fun!!  I can't even keep track of which arm I want stabbed next.

And yet ...

Everyone loves my writing, yet no one buys my books!  The frustration is nearly overwhelming.  They're just stories, like the ones I put on here.  Give it a try!  The last two are even on Kindle, for those who dislike real books.  Argh!

One Hundred Years in the Future

I made my choice, now I have to live with it.  Egad!  Who would have believed it?  Hillary Clinton's great-granddaughter has just been elected Queen of the United States of North America and All Contiguous Nations.  I've just opened my tax bill and...

OH GOODY, A REALLY YOUNG DOCTOR!

Went to the orthopedist today.  Monday will be his last day.  I asked him who I should see and he named a lot of people from Fort Wayne, but we don't want to have to go there and get stuck in the wintertime driving 35 miles one way.  So I mentioned...

GOT THROUGH THE PROCESS!!

My next book is out, for all of you who don't give a fig - it's titled, "The War Comes to Horatio," and it should be up on Amazom.com within another day or so.  They always say 3 to 5 business days, but it never takes that long.  You should at least...
