Birthday Eve

I can't believe tomorrow that I'll be 59. Fortunately I feel about as good as I have in 5 years.

It was exactly one year ago that I had surgery on my neck. The recovery is about 100%. No pain, just a bit of numbness in my left hand on occasion.

Back in February I hired a trainer and he has made a world of difference.


Sometimes the stresses of life weigh down. Worries about work, sick pets, health, what the future holds. 

Then, when you possess a mind like mine, all that stress dissolves with a dream.

I was in England, in a large bakery and tea shop. I don't know if they have such things. The place was full of very mature women.  I was being ignored as a bothersome American. 

So, what did I do? Why I grabbed a wooden spoon and floated around the high ceilings like a witch on a broom making scary noises. 

That got their attention.
