Just Taking Up Space

I did not get a lot accomplished yesterday except for a teleconference with a nurse practitioner from Dr. Creamer’s office, the doctor that did my RF nerve ablations. They were done six months ago today, and it was a follow-up to see how I am doing. I told her the difference is amazing from how I felt before to now. I still have nagging back pain from other issues, but the near agony I was living with is gone and I feel like I have a new lease on life. There will be another follow-up in a couple of months. The nerve might regenerate eventually, and if it does, we will have to repeat the quick and easy procedure.

After I was done with that, I answered some e-mails, tried to help another author with some problems he was having in his story, wrote and proofed another chapter in my new John Lee Quarrels book, then spent a couple of hours researching things for that book. I also called my friend Orv Hazelton out at the Escapees Club’s Jojoba Hills RV resort in California to wish him happy birthday, and we chatted for a bit.

Neither one of us was very hungry, so for dinner we just had cheese and crackers while watching TV. And that was it. Otherwise, the only thing I accomplished yesterday was to take up space and set a bad example for the rest of the world. Hopefully, today I will be a bit more motivated and get something accomplished. Then again, maybe not. I guess I’ll just have to wait and see what happens.

And is closing, here is another of our funny signs we see in our travels and that our readers share with us.

Be sure to enter our latest Free Drawing. This week’s prize is an audiobook of Dog’s Run, my mystery set in a small Ohio town in 1951. I have 33 mystery novels out, as well as 10 nonfiction books, and I have to say that Dog’s Run is my favorite. It’s a gritty tale that is loosely based upon an actual crime that took place in that part of the country when my father was a young police officer there, and I warn you in advance that there’s some rough language, but it’s appropriate to the time and place. To enter, all you have to do is click on this Free Drawing link or the tab at the top of this page and enter your name (first and last) in the comments section at the bottom of that page (not this one). Only one entry per person per drawing please, and you must enter with your real name. To prevent spam or multiple entries, the names of cartoon or movie characters are not allowed. The winner will be drawn Sunday evening.

Thought For The Day – I got myself a senior citizen’s GPS. Not only does it tell me how to get to my destination, when I arrive, it tells me why I wanted to go there in the first place.
