Back to the Beginning

Posted on

Sunday morning.

In a return to the morning coffee posts where I stagger down to the studio while trying not to slop coffee on the carpet, plop down in my new $59 “Executive Chair” and try to write something coherent.  Spell checking, and maybe some rough editing is allowed, but these are not orations nor dissertations.  Just the observations of an old man facing his doom. The challenge is to limit them to 500 words, but ideally I will wrap them up around 250 words, más o menos.

As fate would have it, my brother and niece have come to stay with us.  I presume permanently, but who knows?  They visited earlier, and while here the Covid madness stupidity hysteria settled in and even auto travel was proscribed.  While they were here, they concluded this would be an ideal place to live, and after a brief return to their home in Colorado after everyone was too exhausted from all the hyperventilating to care, they made the move.

My brother then had a cardiac episode and went through bypass surgery and is now recovering from that.  The niece went to work nearby in Temple, a twelve-mile commute from the house and near where my brother is going through cardiac rehab.  Kismet again.

But for me, little changed.  I mow when I can, take lots of naps muse on arcane religious texts and torment the budgie.

And blather on like people hang on my every word.

    I believe Our Brother would not have survived His Cardiac Episode if it had happened in Colorado. And I also believe that being at the lower altitude is beneficial.

      I am glad that the VA transferred him to Baylor Scott&White instead of doing it at their facility.

      I can think up several fit punishments for those that loot and destroy private property. They might prefer hanging to those punisments.

    Thoughts are with your brother and his recovery. That can be a long road, I know. Glad he’s in a good place and with family.
    😊

      I suspect we can … maybe some territorial disputes, but no major policy disagreements! 😉

    Wish I had the time, vacation, and covidless opportunity to buzz down and meet/see you. Hugs
