One of Seven

I’m doing something today I don’t usually. I’m complaining. Yes, you’re right, I have expressed displeasure from time to time but this is different. This is head shaking, head scratching, “what did you expect” vent-age. You can tell by how late it is that I wasn’t even certain about posting this, but clearly I have. If you […]

Step 4: The List

We are making progress. Tuesday afternoon I received a call from the transplant center at the hospital that the test results are in, the clearances have been reviewed, the committee has met, and I can now say I am officially sick enough to need a new kidney if one can be found for me. Have […]

Stop, Thief!

Summer, Santa, and Selfies

Welcome to Selfie Day 2018. I’m not sure if it’s a National or International Selfie Day. I guess wherever there are cameras, err phones, and selfie worthy backgrounds, err phones, people can celebrate. Personally I think we would be better off celebrating Half Christmas than Selfie Day. Even though marketing people are very up on […]
