Hello, darlings all.........just want you to know I am still ticking even though I have taken a licking....(anybody remember the old Timex Watch commercial?)
My oldest and only remaining friend from my childhood is having a bad year....something like the one I had last year only worse and my heart is breaking. She had a small stroke in January, a disastrous cataract operation
last month and, having gone down to Boston to consult an eye specialist, fell and broke her arm in 2 places before the consultation, ending up back in New Hampshire in the local Hospital.
I am bereft, heartbroken because there is nothing I can do to fix this. Can't even help. Of course I have called and spoken to her and will continue to do so, but I can't even send her funny cards.....funny cards are not funny when someone has to read them to you. Flowers.....nah. Chocolate......maybe....... Last time I sent a bunch of Lindt Truffles......Oh, shit, piss, fuck. Life is indeed cruel sometimes......
I will blog again when my funnybone revives.....meanwhile, it couldn't hurt if you sent good thoughts and a prayer or two to my dear friend, Stel.
Bless you all....and as I always say......DON'T FALL DOWN.
