Mother's Day, 2019.

Surrounded by you, on the mantle, at college, age 19. And overhead. Embedded.

I had surgery, allergic to the iodine, who knew? Beet red and itchy.  Could not wear the abdomen truss for a few days, doing now outside tee and nightgown, sure hope going without did not harm.

Also in today's NYT: Shirley Branner died May 9. She was 90. Real estate broker, indexer, librarian. No services planned. Kindly remember The New York Times Neediest Cases Fund and the Society of Architectural Historians.

Passover 2019

Miguel and William

Was grand with grandsons, first time reciting and reading together. We  skimmed through the Peach Haggadah, made it to the plagues and four questions, grape juice and wine ... then on to Celeste's undercooked carrots, my burned basket and Josh's sensational Key Lime pie.

Uno March 2019

Hi my dearest, have given up on blog title, would call this one US healthcare from hell.

My gut meds in tablet form retails at $1,200. Will be $406 in Medicare gap, is $100 from India via Canada. Mesalamine enemas retail at about $600, so those retail amounts were charged against Medicare deductive of $4,000... eating most of it.

In GAP enemas will be $150 per month tablets $406 ... in GAP all generics are "discounted" 37%.

Some fucking discount.

February 28, 2019. Thursday, no leap for the Norse god of Thunder

Hi Carole,

It's been a excuses except that I still haven't transferred access of this blog to more recent computer, the newer MAC with sign in to Pinecrest Floods.  Hope this 10-year-old desktop keeps going!

Your kids are fine, Josh doing media management for videos, Danny in Houston working on a long term video shoot.

Danny made another short of his own, got the concept while in Cannes a few ago.  Is his poem, others did the voice over and graphics. IS creepy excellent; about a pedophile— makes your shoulders shiver and your gut quiver.   The Incredible Short Life of Peter Panties captures that cruddy nastiness superbly.

Ouch .... along with New York Times header: Former Cardinal Expelled as Pope Confronts Abuse  / Rare Step by Vatican...

I truly don't know how rare all this sordid behavior is — this thunder and riot: its clatter and chaos.

Our current president a confirmed mobster, crook and racist. Families separated, we having lived with ;;;; .....


Tuesday was colonoscopy day for me—actually sigmoid— same procedure every two years, and time after time I say never again...I seem to be hanging in there ... am back to getting meds from India, even on Medicare am priced out of gut pills in USA... crazy. Mesalamine tablets, $100 a month from India, $1,200 in USA, I'll go through Medicare deductible lickety split ... may have already... also, same drug in different delivery system, up-the-butt as enemas, $167 from India, $600 in USA.  CT scan showed a hernia from surgery years ago,  my small intestine popped out----- gross ...I  pushed it back in.  No worries about large one doing the alien thing, it isn't there...

🐶oh, WOW this older computer has emojis, symbols to add pizazz—💝💘💚💛💖💗💓💞💕❣️💔

2019, your birthday, January 3

HI CArole, it is January 3, your birthday.

Had 7-yr-old grandson William for the night, Xmas vacation --- morning of your birthday now, making French toast for breakfast.

Doggie, Britney, won't move her head as I write, her presence impeding, blocking my feet from the computer station.

Curt is hitting the shower for work, I'll be making his lunch, William glued to Minecraft in the next room.

And it is January 3, your birthday...And now it is January 3, your 69. me 70, that calendar time of year ...

Seemingly another day, except you are not here.

And later yet,

After he bored of Minecraft, William and I had wonderful payday, he beat me at every game of Connect 4 ...

Swapping fresh Russell Stover chocolates under your picture. Last year was Truffles, bright foil cranberry wrapping,  am replacing with box of All Dark Chocolate, shiny royal blue.

Taking showers together

I dreamed we were taking showers together and you made me spill the shampoo. We laughed. Maybe as teenagers at the beach ... sweet.
