Leaving a stain...

What the Astros did, and probably the Red Sox also,
is doing more damage to baseball than ever before.

If you can only win by cheating...just go home.

Another trip to the E.R....

Four bouts of cellulitis in a year.
We took Carol to the E.R. Tuesday night when
her temp jumped to 101.9 and her left shoulder 
and chest showed bright red, hot to the touch.

I was not pleased with the medical services this time.
It took them almost six hours to administer the
first dose of antibiotics. Would've been longer if
I hadn't questioned the delay...twice.
By the time they finally went into action, the
redness and swelling had progressed to the entire
arm, left shoulder, chest and back. And the swelling
got really scary big.

Tonight they changed her IV meds to pills.
If the symptoms fade away enough, they might
send her home this weekend. We hope.

What a weird winter, so far. Very little snow.
A lot of rain and wind.
They say tomorrow might be close to 70 degrees!
But they've issued wind and flood warnings.
I just hope Mother Nature isn't saving it up
for one huge dump.

Time flies...

It was January 2006 when I started this blog.
I had no idea what I was doing. It was strictly
trial and error at first until some kindly bloggers
shared their wisdom and some advice.

A lot of those bloggers aren't around anymore.
At least a dozen have died. Some disappeared
from blogging to explore FB or other formats.
I miss a lot of the old gang.
But, I am also very grateful for those few who have
continued to visit here in spite of my dwindling 
quality and quantity of product. It's a good feeling
to know I still have friends who visit and comment. 

 I intend to hang around here for a while longer.
At least until it becomes undeniably obvious that
I'm only talking to myself. And even then, the
babbling will probably continue.

Happy Birthday, Mom. Wish you were here.

Just another excuse...

to get drunk
to rant about the bad
to fear the future, then
to curse your hangover.
