Catching Up

Dear Folks,

I have absent for quite some time, so I thought I'd pop in to say, "Hello!" It's been a while since I've posted, and I had to ask basil all over again how to do it. This is the first time I have seen the WordPress site, but I like it very much.

The thing I like the best is that the words are big enough that I don't have to bobble my head trying to find the right place in my progressive lenses to see the screen!

The thing I like second best is that I don't have to remember to double space between happens automatically! I imagine that's something that basil tweaked, but nevertheless, it is delightful and aids in editing quite nicely.

The third thing I like is the color. I am partial to blue on websites, and the blue hues here are very appealing.

I haven't read many of basil's posts in the last month, so last night I took some time to do some catching up on my reading here. I discovered that I had missed some very good reading in the last three weeks! I'll comment about some of his posts at another time, but I do want to take this opportunity to comment about one topic.

I reread basil's posts about my little accident in January, and I also read the accompanying comments. Several weeks ago when I first read them, I was still taking pain-killers, and I didn't have the presence of mind to comment in order to thank you for your thoughts and prayers. (Actually, I THOUGHT I HAD commented and thanked you, but I must have hallucinated that.) basil did a magnificent job of thanking you for your warm wishes and kind words, but last night I realized I needed to write a post in order to thank you personally and also to give you an official update. (That's also what prompted my asking basil how to post.)

When basil first told you about the accident, we were afraid I might have fractured ribs but thankfully I had no broken or fractured bones. My leg was twisted and we were worried about blood clots, but the doctors were pleased with the results of the sonogram of my leg. So, it seems I have been in pretty good shape the whole time. I have just been bruised and really sore.

Actually, I have been healing quite nicely. I am still a little sore, and my stamina is not what it should be yet, BUT I don't limp now and I can sleep on my side again...even if it is the "well" side. It is delightful not to have to sleep sitting up!

I feel good enough to fix phin some chicken and dumpling and a peanut butter cookie!

Again, thank you for your kind and thoughtful words, your warm wishes, and your prayers.

    Recently, Mike Adams wrote an open missive to the National Endowment for the Arts and published it with the title, The Queer Muhammed: an experiment in tolerance. Here’s the leadoff:
