Hey, Mother Nature.....What Did I Ever Do To You?.....

I  would really be in  a state of Rant were it not for the fact that my Pollyanna persona and my Gemini duality keep seeing it as sort of a Good Thing.   (IT being the rain last weekend that made us postpone our Yard Sale.)   Hell, a person can live for a week with 17 boxes stacked in their Living room and on their porch, can't they?

"Sure, I  can", I told myself........"and I can use the extra time to collect even more stuff and put it in even more boxes."   And so I did.

Sob.  It is now the following Saturday and once more the forecast has called for rain today, so once again we have postponed everything.  Maybe the Pennysaver will give us a  refund for the ad?

Meanwhile, sigh, on other fronts I have just found out, after innumerable pokes, pinches, scans and invasions of the bod, that my left carotid artery  needs to be roto-rooted of clogs like my right one was last year and the Vascular Plumber has been scheduled.   Therefore, even if  the sun should shine for 24 hours next Saturday I will be unable to attend because I will be back in the condition where I can not turn my head from straight ahead to anywhere right of center for a while.  They make those stitches so damned tight........besides.......the advance weather checker has just informed us that it may rain next  Saturday too.   How fortunate that by now I don't even notice the 17 boxes piled in the living room and on the front porch.  So now it looks like we may try to have our sale the first or second weekend in December.  If any of you have any pull with the gods of weather, pulleeeeze put in a good word for us, will ya.?

I don't want any of you to worry about me........I am sure I will emerge just fine and 90% additional blood supply to my poor brain can only be a good thing, dontcha think?  I will probably take my laptop with me, but I may or may not feel like blogging.  Last time I was evicted from the hospital after only a day so it may not even  be worth schlepping the thing with me.  We will see, but, rest assured, I will try to keep you informed.

In the meantime, any good thoughts you would like to send my way are always much appreciated  and, I promise you that, if I should happen to be routed into the tunnel, I will  definitely send you Steve Jobs'   "Oh Wow 3x" message and it will unequivocably  mean only Good Things.

Love ya' all.


  1. Would that I could be there to hold your hand...
    But consider this... getting kicked out after only a day is a GOOD thing in this case!!!
    Hugs ~

  2. Best wishes for a speedy recovery from the op Lo.

  3. Man, Lo, you sure go to extremes to get out of a yard sale. Holy smokes. Furthermore, hope your sale group will consider an internet announcement of the sale. You will surely pull in more customers; but there may be a problem with increased traffic in the neighborhood.

    Best wishes with your maintenance. Make the best use of your recovery. Relax.

  4. It's me, and I have put my faith in action and know that you are going to make it through this just fine. Know that you are in my heart, on my mind, and in my prayers,,,much love

  5. I am not even going to worry about you. Nope. Not one bit. Because you are LO, the Great and Powerful.
    But I am going to tell you that I hope all goes well because you are precious to me.
    Got that?

  6. Praying for a quick, uneventful surgery, easy recovery, and no rain for the weekend you are able to have the sale!

  7. you ALWAYS have my good thoughts, Lo! Hang in there and come out swinging! ;o)

  8. Blessings, Lo. May this procedure go smoothly.

  9. Just talked to The Man Upstairs and the weather has been taken care of, in addition to special attention during your reverse vampire experience... Expect full report as initial response to "Lo -- Lo? Can you hear me?" post-op...

  10. Will be thinking about you and saying more than one prayers....then will think positive thoughts in your direction for good measure!!! You take care!

  11. Will send healing energy in your direction. And you know, I've noticed that if I ignore something like 17 boxes stacked in my living room for a few days, pretty soon I don't even see them any more. Ditto for cracks in the ceiling, a cabinet that needs painting, and huge stacks of grandkids' toys. Come to think of it, their toys are the equivalent of 17 boxes stacked in our living room. Hope you're feeling better soon.

  12. Good luck with the clean-out, Lo. Of your artery, I mean. And then, later on, with the 17 boxes. I'd love to see what you get rid of in a yard sale. Better than average stuff, I'll bet.

  13. Lots and lots of good and positive thoughts heading your way from me, take care of you. x

  14. Hope all your "plumbing" is soon in top shape again Lo!

    The solution to rained out yard sales is...tarps!
