Night chairs


Here’s a bunch of metal chairs out on the lawn here at the City of Hope.  At night.  I noticed them out there on my way back to the car at 9:20 PM after a day at the hospital with LRN4.  Great art courtesy of the exclusive iPhone-cam, taken on May 29, 2013, and part of my exclusive Statue series.

Claim: a large enough group of chairs together at the same time at night constitutes a statue.  Dissenting opinions may be registered in the comments section below and will be ignored.  They’re a statue.

The happiest day of the year is here!  Hence, the Very Special Saturday Edition of the blog.  Happy birthday to me!  It was a very pleasant day – sunny and warm but not too hot.  We spent a pretty substantial part of the day sitting in our plastic Adirondack chairs in the shade of the front porch reading from and writing to our computers and maybe a book or two.  That may sound a little dull, but it was an outstanding afternoon.  Trust me on this.

While we were out on the porch, we also took the opportunity to open my extravagant gifts and the numerous cards I received from family and friends all over the world.  What a haul!

Actually, I received a lovely miniature [amazon asin=B0000645YL&text=food processor] from LRN4 and a delightful [amazon asin=1599550423&text=book] from my kind parents-in-law, signed by the author, who is a friend of theirs.  I read a few of the poems already and they’re really touching.  Thanks for that great book, in-laws!  And thanks for the cool food processor, LRN4!

LRN4 already checked out the food processor for me.  She made me a mango, apricot, banana, and coconut milk smoothie.  It was delicious.  I see the road ahead paved with smoothies.  She also made me an outstanding devil’s food cake with powdered sugar instead of frosting.  I’ve had two pieces – lunch and dinner – and can safely say it’s a perfect cake.

We were supposed to go to my cousin Betsy’s for dinner, presents, and cake, but she called last night and canceled, as mentioned yesterday.  So more cake and presents on Monday!

Oh, did I mention to my Loyal Readers that I’m an Amazon affiliate?  If they click on any of my Amazon links and then buy anything from Amazon during that session, I get a little kickback and it costs them nothing.  At least that’s what happens if I managed to set up the links correctly.  Not that I’m asking anyone to do that, of course.  Just thought I’d mention it as a matter of passing interest.

Okay, LRN4’s condition.  Unchanged.  She’s feeling good and doing well.  She still has a long way to go to build back up here strength, so we need to start walking a bit more often.  Heaven knows I also have a long way to go to build up my strength and build down my fat.  We did walk back and forth to the clinic again today, but that was it.  We also made it to the post office and grocery store (had to buy that devil’s food cake mix) and that was about it.  Blood test tomorrow to see how LRN4’s levels are, followed by another blood test and doctor visit on Monday to see what he’s going to do about it and possibly find out the results of Thursday’s bone marrow biopsy.  That’ll be a very important day and I must say we’re both just a bit nervous about it.  Cautiously optimistic might be a better term.

Welcome to new Loyal Reader Tonya – her name is immortalized over there on the right as Loyal Reader Number 31!  Use your newfound fame for good, LRN31.

And that’s about it for today.  I’ll leave my Loyal Readers with this shocking food violence news: ice cream assault!

See you tomorrow.
