Meredith got back yesterday.
Pictures to follow.
I got a car again.
Will go get a blood test to see if I've still got to take the cholesterol pills that may cause cataracts.

And other things.

The scooter tire seems to have sealed nicely but I haven't checked it yet today.

Gonna go now for a shower and then I'm off into the wild blue yonder.

I tried a tame red yonder once but it just didn't have the same cachet.

At least, I was unwilling to give it mine.

Chasing you around Facebook is
like Wiley Coyote trying to
catch Road Runner; ain't no way
I can any more than eat your
dust you cyber prince, you.
I finally got around to asking
Alex to be my friend today.
Even asked Joy Harjo, but that
is a long shot; she doesn't really
know me although I have left
a few comments on her blog.
Alex has 1,315 friends.
Somehow that blows my mind.
I suppose if I looked at the
counters on my daughter's
sites it would astonish me
too. Coming late to the party
is both fun and frustrating.
Welcome back Meredith;
sounds like an 80's sit com
title, enit? Hope she dug up
some goodies with her trowel.
I thought that once you achieve
our advanced age, and some
sawbones puts us on cholesterol
meds, it is permanent for a
chronic condition; certainly seems
to be that way for me, toots.
And as to cataract surgery, you
are overdue, sir. Probably already
have a pair, but the opacities
are incipient and not visually
significant yet. But now that I
have successfully negotiated
that surgery one time, I assure
you it was a cake walk; less
trauma than a root canal.
"Other things" will always
be lurking, be omnipresent,
and ready to pounce on you
when you least expect it.
Look forward to it. It will give
you something to blog about.
"wild blue" or "tame red",
that specter of Yonder will
also be there when you need
to transport yourself to somewhere
else on the planet.

I agree, tame red yonders are a bit of a drag.
Try a wild and woolly one, I can vouch for them.

Turns out the blood test is off for today 'cause I'm not supposed to eat anything before, so I think I'll take the scoot off the kick stand and pursue the wild'n'wolly.

Yeah, fasting labs are great fun.
Blood tests for cholesterol have
to be done on empty tummies,
sir. I am happy this morning.
Miss Alex accepted me as a
friend on Facebook. As one gets
older, it is the simple things
that bring joy, enit?
Harjo is holding out; too much
of a celebrity I presume.
Suffered through TWILIGHT:
ECLIPSE in the company of
50 giggling 15 year old girls
yesterday; not too bad; lots
of action scenes. Today I am
off to view Stallone flex his
64 year old pecs in THE
EXPENDABLES. I love to see
things blow up.
Melva called from Vancouver.
She is settled in at the school
Dorm for her workshop;
didn't seem too pleased with
the first day of classes; all about
new technology to work with
blind students.
Still really digging STAR TREK; TNG
in HD on BBC America. It is fun
to revisit it remastered and fresh.
crime thriller directed by the
maverick Antoine Fuqua, if someone
wants to see Richard Gere, and
Don Cheadle, and Ethan Hawke,
and Wesley Snipes strut their stuff.

I notice that Glenn is now featuring
more of e.e. cummings poetry over on
FFTR. Check it out and see if you can
figure out what the hell e.e. is trying
to say, or said.

e.e. cummings was not gay, but he sure
as hell was a wing nut poet.

It be Wednesday here in the
Northern hemisphere, and still
part of the day before in the
southern H, but smug bastards
that we of the north are, we
will call this mid-week and
hump the dickens out of it.
I am still playing with facebook
like a child with a new toy.
I guess that lasts for a time.
Tried to post some pics, but
am missing several of the
steps, and can't quite make it
happen. I did figure out how
to post videos on it, and found
a couple that were like commercials
for my Suzuki SUV. Living and
still learning; something to be
said for that. I have a Tacoma
Film Club meeting tonight, and
it feels good to know that it will
not keep me up past my old
8 pm bedtime. Yeah, I rose at
3 am, got to work by 5 am,
nearly two hours before anyone
else, so that I could write, blog,
and meditate in peace. It also
gave me time to do more prep
work and reports at the office.
But with the passing of each
new day, those memories are
morphing into antiquity, like
talking about PALMER AUTOMOTIVE,
The Duke of Oil. I did make it
out to see Stallone and the gang
in THE EXPENDABLES, and it was
the action flick for boomers for
sure; oddly no nudity, and not
that much gore; terrific stunts
though, and lots of ordinance
and explosions. Stallone probably
has a net worth right under
Warren Buffett for his no-brainer
career. I stuck my neck out and
bought Melva a new vacuum
cleaner as a surprise for her,
a Dyson roller ball model.
I have the receipt in case she
wants to return it. It was "on sale"
for 50 bucks off.

Sometimes with you, Vincent,
it is hard to tell. Maybe only part
of you is dead.

The word verification for the last
posting was "horying". Lane could
do a lot with that; quite a play on
language, enit?

Joy Harjo sent a nice message to
me on facebook, basically saying
that she remembered me from some
of the comments I left on her blog,
but that her filter was put on by
facebook management, so she is
sorry that she cannot comply.
Celebrity status must be tough.
Some people handle it better
than others. Look at Lane.

Hallo, Lane!!
Better than taking eye-damaging anti-cholesterol pills, simply intake less cholesterol (I.e. less or no eggs, fatty meats, etc.). Best wishes and good luck!!!!!!
