Truck vs Blogger, Truck Wins, Sort of...IV

Yesterday I had surgery on my thumb. Today I look like the character in a cartoon, on crutches, one leg in a brace, one arm in a cast, who’s being asked, ‘Were you hit by a truck?’ ‘No, I just suggested to my wife she might lose a little weight!” ‘Oh? What happened?’ ‘She sat on me!’ But, of course,... Sign in to see full entry.

Truck vs Blogger, Truck Wins, Sort of...III

Most of this past week I spent in waiting rooms, either at my own doctor’s office or at hospitals. I worked out the ratio of time spent waiting vs. time spent talking to or being examined by a physician: in my case it comes to almost exactly three hours of waiting to five minutes of direct contact...

Truck vs Blogger, Truck Wins, Sort of...II

I am not used to being incapacitated. I am not used to having to ascend stairs one step at a time, placing my crutch, moving my ‘good’ right leg first, while shifting the weight on my left side onto my crutch. And having to reverse the process when descending, backwards: crutch and ‘bad’ left leg... Sign in to see full entry.

Truck vs Blogger: Truck Wins, Sort of...I

As many of you already know, I was hit by a truck a couple of days ago, while riding my bicycle on a pleasant country road. And I am really grateful for your prayers and good wishes, and no, TAPS, I don't mind in the least if someone prays for me. I may be an agnostic, but I know that such prayer...

New Revelations about Differences between the US and Canada!

Well, I’m back home, after more than two weeks, back at my computer and, I guess, back in Blogitland. Most of my time away I spent in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada’s ocean playground, with very dear friends. Travelled around the province as well, visiting familiar places, and more friends. And I’ll...

A Haiku Interlude...

I'll be away for a few days, and I intend to withdraw a bit from the world...who knows what it will look like when I get back? Meanwhile, here are a few haiku, not all of them quite conforming to the rules, in that nature does not have the prominence it should have...unless we concede that all is...

The ‘Duh’ Factor…

I do watch sports, especially baseball, and recently I got really wrapped up in the World Cup, (and I hope you all know what World Cup I am talking about.) One of the things that detracts from my enjoyment of whatever I am watching is the commentators’ (there are always at least two, sometimes... Sign in to see full entry.
