Pink-yellow rose


Here’s a pink and yellow rose.  It was growing in the rose garden here at the City of Hope just the other day.  They have some absolutely beautiful roses in that garden.  Great Art courtesy of the exclusive iPhone-cam, previously published on my Facebook account, and part of my famous Garden series.

Fine day today.  As predicted yesterday, LRN29 was here.  She accompanied LRN4 to her clinic and doctor visits, both of which took place in the morning.  I remained here in the Village and worked.  More of which below.  The medical visit appears to have gone well.  LRN4’s steroid intake was reduced yet again.  There’s a good chance that she’ll be completely off them by next week.  If not, the next week for sure.  Unless she’s not, of course.  Getting her off the ‘roids means no more daily clinic visits, a consummation devoutly to be wished.

Let’s see, what other LRN4 news do I have?  Her toe continues to improve, although it’s obviously still hurting.  The doctor didn’t have much to say about it other than that it appears to be improving.  So there’s that.  She and LRN29 stopped at the weekly farmer’s market on their way back to the Village.  LRN4 bought a couple of vegetables and LRN29 bought a couple of bags full of vegetables and other stuff.  Looks like they had a nice time.

My work news: I got my four classes in.  On schedule.  Turns out there are five left, so it will be a slightly longer day.  No deviation from the schedule is authorized.  Programming begins on Saturday.

Following up on my recent musing about how to spend my Amazon gift certificate.  LRN4 correctly noticed a coincidental similarity in all my contemplated items.  Well, here’s another possibility: [amazon asin=B000OEUUG6&text=a flying, screaming monkey]!  What do you think, Loyal Readers?

Or maybe I should just buy [amazon asin=BT00CTOZCE&text=one of these].

We’re watching an interesting movie this evening: [amazon asin=B00005J760&text=Thirteen Days].  According to this Wikipedia article, it’s been very well received.  Also, it lost a lot of money.  As of this writing, Kennedy is just about to make a speech on TV and start the big showdown with the Russkies.  The tension is palpable.  I wonder how it’ll turn out.

Nothing else going on here, so I’ll leave my Loyal Readers with this shocking food violence news: cheeseburger rage!

See you tomorrow.

    You already have a couple of helicopters so I think you should go for the Flying Monkey.
