Thank you to everybody who has sent emails, texts, and Facebook messages expressing their concern for our safety with Hurricane Dorian approaching Florida, and with our various medical issues. We appreciate you. As far as the storm, we are watching it closely and are well-stocked with provisions if we get hit. If worse comes to […]

I said in yesterday’s blog that I had an appointment with a specialist yesterday afternoon. This was to see if we can figure out what is causing the sharp stabbing pain I get in my right temple, and to further investigate what caused my episode of dizziness and blurred vision in my right eye several […]

No, not for the reasons you think. Well, come to think of it, that’s a pretty good reason to avoid the refrigerator, too. But there’s so much good stuff in there! No, the reason I should avoid refrigerators is because I have spent so much time in MRI machines lately that I’m afraid if I […]

In a blog post a couple of days ago I said that we were planning a trip up to Ohio to do some research on the family saga series I want to write. At the same time, I said my back was acting up again, so the timing of the trip depended on that. As […]

When I was in the Army, so much of what we did was hurry up and wait. During training we would roll out of our bunks, get ready for the day, fall out in formation, and then wait while the drill sergeants or whoever was in charge decided to get around to inspecting us, harassing […]

The last couple of days have been busy, busy, busy for us. You may recall that a while back I had an episode of dizziness, blurred vision, and a terrible headache. After going to my primary care doctor, they sent me for what they said was going to be an MRI, but actually turned out […]

I appreciate everybody’s concern for my health given my recent episode of dizziness and all that. When I went to bed Tuesday night the dull headache was still there, but I was so tired that I thought I would sleep through anything. As it turned out, I was wrong about that. My back was hurting, […]

Today is just going to be a quick update because I am still not feeling well. Thank you to everybody who expressed concern after reading yesterday’s blog where I talked about having a weird episode of dizziness and tingling in my head. Two retired doctors and a couple of nurses who read my blog were […]

Some blog readers have asked how it’s possible for a guy my size to fit into a small car like a Mustang. A couple of people have said I should have bought a convertible because with the top down it would be much easier. One smart Alec suggested the only way I was going to […]
