Inefficiency

I can’t stand it. The idea invokes failure. Who are the idiot architects in the grocery store game who are responsible for planning out the best (most efficient) place to put in the restrooms and pharmacies? “Put them farthest away so injured and sick people have to limp their infirmed bodies all the way toContinue reading “Inefficiency”

One More Time

Today at 10:30 EST I check into the hospital for a very short stay (I hope) as the vascular surgeon will be cleaning out my right corraded artery and putting yet another stent in my beautiful brown body. That makes a total of 9 and three of those were lost to amputation. I know IContinue reading “One More Time”

Nice People

I am starting to sound like a broken record. I can count on two fingers the people who I cannot consider nice or otherwise on our road trip out here, as they were more disengaged than anything.

Despair

Despair is the emotion you don’t wish on anyone, or at least you shouldn’t. To take away someone’s hope is “the unkindest cut of all.”Sometimes it is the only thing left to take away from a person. That and personal pride, something I have always had way too much of. Despair is the emotion coveredContinue reading “Despair”

Take THAT Diabetes!

Today is a watershed moment in my climb back to normalcy as I prepare for my round of golf this morning. It is going to be sunny and 70 degrees here in Arizona and that does not suck. I will be attempting to play golf for the first time in about 2 years. My legContinue reading “Take THAT Diabetes!”
