I'm old...I looked at myself in a mirror today (Something I take strenuous steps to avoid) Face it Hairy...you're 75...not 25. Old is old. It's not a matter of attitude...it's years...and I got 'em.

Anyway, I was out of one of my medications and didn't notice, Not good. The imbalance screwed with my head. It's not that I don't want to write...I can't work up the interest. Of course I didn't KNOW that...until I started taking the missing med...maybe soon....Okay?

You have written your fair share of corny over the past few years...but this...


Not hardly.

"Where have you been? I've missed you."

There are other struggling authors ya know. Sometimes they need my help.

"Not as badly as I do."

I am glad you recognize that fact.

I've taken to reading my chapters out loud. I manage to get through...usually without blowing my drinks out my nose...but not always. Tonight was just such a night. While I blow my nose hoping to dislodge potatoes stroganoff with mushrooms and mixed veggies I thought I might do better than to edit my stuff...I'm damn funny...and the potato chunks hurt.

He was right. I have Karen on a pedestal. He suggested that a rescue might be just the ticket. Small boat...won't start...tow home...that kind of thing. It was the pedestal thing that got me. I'm chipping away at it.
