A sparrow.

It was more of a snack though and gone within 5 minutes.

I have a friend whose a real nut.

A wonderful, thoughtful, kind caring beautiful nut!

That has gone out of her way to make my day once again!

I'm not kidding, she's totally nuts!

Imagine my surprise at work when I received this shoe box full of fresher than fresh pecans from KFarmer.
Son has been enjoying them too.
Me thinks I must try my hand at a pecan pie with this manna from my angel friend.
Thank you so much sweet K.

Mom Update

Tomorrow I take Mom for a chemical stress test. I'm not exactly sure what will happen after. We had an evaluation at MGH last week and I believe they want to try anti-arrhythmia meds with cardio-version to see if she stays in a normal heart rhythm. Mom is not pro anti-arrhythmia meds because of the side affects. I'm in agreement. It's a step we must take none-the-less. Her last cardio-version only lasted a week before she went back into A-fib.

My hope is that something will be done to get her back to a normal heart rate and a normal life. Things are tough enough without this shit.

Mornie utúlië

Enya - May It Be

May it be an evening star
Shines down upon you
May it be when darkness falls
Your heart will be true
You walk a lonely road
Oh! How far you are from home

Mornie utúlië (darkness has come)
Believe and you will find your way
Mornie alantië (darkness has fallen)
A promise lives within you now

May it be the shadows call
Will fly away
May it be you journey on
To light the day
When the night is overcome
You may rise to find the sun

Mornie utúlië (darkness has come)
Believe and you will find your way
Mornie alantië (darkness has fallen)
A promise lives within you now

A promise lives within you now

Need a Laugh

Go HERE and read this.
Then go HERE and watch this.
You won't be sorry.
Happy Friday.

Did I tell you that Mom is in A-Fib again?

Since she went back into A-fib so soon after being cardioverted they are going to take a different approach this time: Cardiac Ablation.
A bit of roto-router for the heart.
Hopefully this will fix the problem for good.
Once again, my poor Mom is in a holding pattern, unable to work or do much of anything.

I just went here for a free tarot reading. It's been quite a while since I've been there. I'm always shocked at how accurate their readings are. I give you my reading below. I actually gasped and welled up when I read the first card.

Give it a shot yourself and see what you think.

Where you stand now

Changes: the end of the old and the birth of the new.

You are faced with a parting, a letting go, or the end of something. This may be a long wished for and liberating ending, or a painful experience. Regardless, it always stands for a natural end. It is time to let go of something, be it a person or situation. Do not deny yourself the natural deep experience of parting and the related life-accepting experiences. This will help prepare you for new things which are soon to come.

Where you want to be (your goal)
The Emperor
Material success, stability, authority and ambition.

This card represents your goal. You may want to gain more stability and grounding through identifying with a powerful group of some kind, whether religious, cultural, intellectual, or political. This may give more depth and meaning to your life by helping to validate your inner Self. You may be feeling a need to belong to a group that helps provide structure and continuity in your life.

Your path
The Chariot
A struggle or conflict, yet strong potential for triumph over adversity.

This card represents your path. Be resolute and goal-oriented in finding the solution to your problem. Free yourself of old, too familiar viewpoints, primarily the opinions of others, and try to see the matter in a new, more appropriate light. Realize that you have to take new paths.

Blast From the Glory Days

Journey came out with this video the year after I graduated. A friend who had seen this video swore I was in it. I had to agree with the resemblance, when I finally saw the video. Right around -2:47 seconds in you'll see my twin. And, yes, I wore headbands back then, I think I still actually have some from then too.

I give you these yearbook photos as proof.
Circa 1982.
You be the judge.
