A Blog Is A Self-Inflicted Invasion Of Privacy

I'm a fifty two year old happily married man who doesn't really like many people which is why I live on the top of a mountain.

Checkin' In

Okay….I guess the YouTube idea was a bad one. The ever amusing ‘AssRot’ told me so in no uncertain terms so….I guess I’ll forget that option. I still may try and use it to show a video from time to time. In the meantime, I’m going to try and post more often.

Thanks to all my blog friends for being so loyal. Ya’ll really are too cool.

My freakin’ back/leg problem continues unabated and I’m trying to tough it out without leaning on the Oxycontin as much as I was for awhile there. It’s a case of the cure being about as bad as the condition I suppose but damn this thing gets almost unbearable at times. I’ve never been much of a whiner but sometimes!!!! Michelle, bless her heart has GOT to be sick of hearing me moan and groan all the time.

Speaking of Michelle, she’s doing well and is as wonderful as ever. She’s presently over at Mr. Earl’s house. She’s been going over there once a week to care for him. He’s eighty four years old I believe and has bladder cancer. He’s a sweet old guy who really has no one to care for him so…Michelle went to his rescue. Truth is… he’s a horny old dude who just loves to flirt with her.

A couple of weeks ago, Michelle was asked to speak to a group of cancer patients, doctors and nurses at Cannon Hospital. Everyone over there calls her ‘Miracle Michelle’ and they wanted her to give her testimony about how she has handled her experiences. She gave the talk and was very well received by all. She made a bunch of hats for chemo patients and unfortunately, there are enough patients that they called to ask her for more yesterday. They’ve taken to calling them ‘Michelle hats’ now. Honestly….she’s becoming something of a local celebrity for all she does. She’s the ‘go to girl’ at the hospital when they have a new patient who is terrified by the diagnosis of cancer. I can’t tell you how many folks she’s talked to and helped. She really is a little angel.

I know….I’m a proud husband but…she really IS something special.

The owner of our office building informed us yesterday that the building has been sold and that we have to be out (after twelve years) by Feb. 2nd so….I’ve got to get busy finding a new place now so…I’ll be busy for a bit but I fully intend on starting a new story soon.


I hope ya’ll are doing well and I’ll be back soon.
