Good evening, Kathy!

*HUGS*

How are you doing tonight? I'm still sore from last night's PT - was hard to move most of the day. Still, making progress. I guess Tuesdays and Thursdays will be tough days for the next few weeks.

Listen, O isles, unto me; and hearken, ye people, from far; The LORD hath called me from the womb; from the bowels of my mother hath he made mention of my name. (Isaiah 49:1 KJV)

I dedicate these songs from 1954 and 1955 to an ex-conservative commentator that a lot of us on FR used to like.

We’ve been short for weeks and weeks.

Sol’s wound is looking much better.

Kitty is filling in.

I’ve needed a hair cut for a long time.. Since Runamuck I don’t have the running around time that I used to have.

Not gonna need to throw the dice for a long time.

It's cooler than normal, with clouds. I wish it would rain some more. We're in a bad drought.

Thanks, Mac, for the Missing Man Setting as we remember those who have given their all that we may gather safe and secure.

Today is Thursday, right? Did you have PT tonight?
