Hi Folks

Just checking in to let ya’ll know that I’m alive and well.

Well….as well as I can be at this time. It has been a long cold winter here in the High Country and to be honest, I’m sick of it!

Bless her precious heart, Michelle is undergoing a new round of chemo involving a drug called Xeloda and while the side effects are not hitting her as bad as they do a lot of people (thank God!), but she’s been a bit lethargic lately and for her…..that’s not a good thing. She’s always been such a dynamo and full of energy that to feel less than energetic is a real downer for her and, by extension, me.

I hate it for her but being a selfish kind of guy…I’m just praying and positive that the lethargy simply means that the drugs are working.

Yep….it’s ALL about ME!

I just want her to be healed and with me FOREVER.

As for me, I can’t seem to find the time, desire or inclination to write anything these days. Maybe it’s the winter ‘blahs’ or the fact that I’m lazy but, aside from ‘reading’ a bunch of historical biographies while working at butchering a ton of wood in the shop (I just discovered books on CD/Cassette)…..I’ve been well….a lazy SOB!

If you haven’t tried them….check out books on CD! Reading has always been a passion of mine and I’ll never stop reading but with the CD’s and Cassettes, I can ride my bike, do wood working or damn near anything and ‘READ’ at the same time. Too cool.

Do yourself a favor and read the biographies of Mark Twain, George Washington, Ben Franklin, Alexander Hamilton, Jefferson et al….DAMN! Those guys were simply amazing.

Men and women in past generations put our generation to abject shame.

We are not worthy of the life THEY allowed us to live.

Hopefully I’ll get into writing again soon but until then, thank you all for checking in on me.

See you soon.
