Good luck with the photo shoot. (Californians make a photo op out of everything.) A friend in Florida had a stent put in a couple of weeks ago. Other than a little soreness and some weakness blamed on one of the medications they gave her, she feels much better.

My closest neighbor died today. She was 92 and went peacefully in her sleep. She made a mean peach cobbler. A very nice lady that will be missed. I guess that is one of the best things people can say about a person.

Fresh coffee for the evening crowd. I slept a lot of the day so I'm confused on which I am.

Thanks. I'll need lighting, makeup, costume, nose candy, the whole schmeer. My last photo-op involved a knee. I have the film. Quite colorful, with good pacing, but portrayal was weak. I blame meds.

I look forward to only mild post-op discomfort. I look forward to a reindeer-hauled sleigh on my roof, too. Sure. Maybe they'll let me have coffee and wine in a few days? [/me almost prays]

We've lost a few, too. Cutest next-door gal was Della, whose ranch house was filled with images and models of... lighthouses. Because she'd been long-married to a lighthouse keeper.

Meanwhile, I've been assessing my 'ukulele needs. A dozen more should do. And then the other small instruments I mentioned. Maybe I need a GoFundMe schtick. Is "crowdsourced 'ukulele mania" a thing?

Meanwhile, it's that time again. A long drive to the med center early tomorrow for a heart procedure, "cardiac cath," an angiogram with a camera on a cable stuck into a vein and angled heartward to see what's there. I might end up with a stent, which is like surgery, and I dislike surgery, but tough on me. And I don't even get to take an 'uke along. [/me whines] A stent won't fix the main problem but it gives the cardiologists something to occupy their time.

Maybe I can have coffee again in a few days. [/me hopes]
I have visions of you, with loads of tubes going here and there, sitting propped up in your sickbed, going plink-a-plink on a 'uke to the amused amazement of all within range.

Did you mention coffee ?
Oh good; I need some of that this morning. I heard last night that an old Ex-RAF Radar mechanic had succumbed to his age (97) and gone to final rest.

Griim weather we're havin'. . . .

I've considered that myself. Sneaking an 'uke might be difficult. Maybe I'll try a harmonica or kazoo or jews-harp.

Wait! I have a little solid-walnut ocarina that's a neck ornament. I'll pretend it's jewelry. I can pipe a plaintive rendition of Your Cheating Heart or Ray Charles' Unchain My Heart or maybe that C&W classic You Done Walked On My Heart (And You Stomped That Sucker Flat). The lyrics I remember:
Yes, you walked on my har-art
You tore it all apart
Darlin', you just sorta
Tromped on my a-or-or-ta

I feel that squishing underfoot; I knew we'd drift apart
And every step you took was a stomp upon my heart.
They don't write-em like that anymore. It'll surely entertain other cardiac patients. Right? Right.

It is 3:30 in the frigging morning. What am I doing awake? Oh yeah, I slept most the day away, so...

Morning HP. It is cold, wet, and windy here and ain't supposed to get over 40 for the next couple of days. I'm working on a large mug of hot chocolate at the present.

Hypoxia, my friend in Florida said it felt more like and elephant sitting on her chest than someone stomping on it. This lady would know about weight on her chest as she had a rather well endowed one.

Okay, I'll even freshen up the coffee for the later morning crew.

I've been leaving my sunglasses in the truck at night. I need to get over that. Temperature was in the 20F's this morning. Not only did the glasses fog up as soon as I put them on, they froze my face while they were at it.

The weather service thinks we have a chance of snow flurries tomorrow morning. It's one of those 'I'll believe it when I see it' predictions because we haven't had any moisture since October.

Good evening all,
We've got the wind; the temperature's not too bad.
Tomorrow night we are due some freezing (and maybe snow).
I ain't looking forward to it.
Eat, Drink and be merry, for tomorrow we may by negotiating with St Peter.

Evening all,

HP, they are forecasting a 50/50 chance of snow and freezing rain here for Friday afternoon/evening. It has been drizzling all day, today. I had to make a run to town. Not one of my better ideas.I had forgotten how bad people drive around here.

Fresh coffee for those in need.

My cold is hanging on but barely. Another day or two I'm assuming. Housemate is much better and houseguest went home to her place for a few days. I think I'll be in bed early tonight.

No, no, the snowstorm hits on Sunday. That's when I'm in concert that's been in practice for two months.

I'm in hospital overnight for observation. Just had the internal photo op that found nothing wrong, so no stent. Whew. That means the next step is ablation, carving new pathways along cardiac muscles, like etch-a-sketch for real.

They haven't yet told me when I can take tea, coffee, wine. Sadistic swine!

Our Met people have cast their runes and mixed up the "eye of newt, tongue of bat" and all that, and reckon that we're in for a very unpleasant few days. Temperatures as high as 30F, and a wind blowing off the mountains of Siberia or the North pole.

Thank you kindly for the coffee; it is most welcome at this time.

Presumably when they've finished messing about.
Fingers crossed.

Sadistic swine. Ah, I see you go to the same brand of horsepital I go to.

That calls for a whole new version of that old song, "Mucking around with your heart."

Hang in there, good coffee comes to those who wait.

Speaking of good coffee, I should make a fresh pot before HP freezes in place.

Snowstorm in Virginia? Say it ain't so, SR.

From the weather reports from around the world, I'd say winter has arrived. Although I think the "Throw another log on the fire" has gotten out of control in SoCal. I hope everyone stays safe.

I'm auful glad I ain't anywhere near you in the hospital. The thought of a "jew's harp" going twong, twang is too much.
Think of "Rio Lobo" [ https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uaMoDIRgeqE ],
somewhere about 1 35: 48.

In the interim, I think some coffee is in order.

We got a little snow on the mountain over night, but none of the predicted flurries made it to town.

OK. It's after tea round here and the wind is getting up.
Batten the Hatches, secure the guns; we're in for a bit of excitement.
Meanwhile - COFFEE

After a nap, I always have coffee.

Light rain, sleet, snow. I think I'll shoot the weatherman early and stop all this madness.

We're having some pretty severe sunshine here. It's cold, but it's a sunny sort of cold.

Round here it's a brisk wind, and occasional rain.
Simply not nice.
I feel that a warm fire good book and a nice mug of tea might be the right thing.

Cold, dry and second day of blue skies.


A book is always a good plan.

It's frigging snowing it's happy ass off. Not sticking but I'm afraid that will change as the night goes on. The temp was freezing a few hours ago and ain't going to get no warmer.

Housemate, check. Houseguest, check. Hot chocolate, apple cider, and coffee. Check. Heat set, check. Time to snuggle down and wait it out.

Fresh coffee for the evening crowd. Y'all be careful out there.
