  • 2 days of silence.
  • Currently about 22 degrees out there and rain forecasted starting at 5PM.
    It ends tomorrow about the same time. 24 hours of freezing rain. That is followed by another 12 hours of more train and slowly warming up. Friday at Midnight rolling into Saturday, it should get warm enough on my hill. Power crews will be out in force repairing down power lines all around 'Little Beirut' and I expect to be one of the last ones restored. A few small propane cans for one generator and a few buckets of gas for the other one. Downed power lines means no computer but the TV should still work.
    Great time for the movie "Ice Station Zebra" or "The Thing".
    Dr Zhivago could be another option.

  • Oh no!
    It's back!!

    Maybe not for long, Then again maybe too long. I had the cancer once. Nice thing about cancer is it tends to eliminate part of the curiosity of what is going to kill you. Just doesn't tell you when. Even though the surgeon had 11.5 hours of fun carving me out. That's the fun part of chemo. It does not shrink things, it makes them explode all over yer innards. Then they open you up Like a Thanksgiving Turkey and see how much stuffing they can remove.

    Then they ~might~ start you on radiation just to kill off a few more of your nerves and whatever else. I didn't get radiated. I was thinking if I did, I would ask them to make it just enough that I wouldn't need a flashlight in the dark anymore. I could shoot light beams out of my toes to light up my way to the bathroom each night.
    Chemo is good for killing circulation in the feet, tinnitus and tingly nerves in your legs among other things.
    Interesting that part of you has to die so the rest can live.

    However, I am still kicking and writing annoying things.
