My Eyes Still See - Yay!

Opthalmology report from yesterday’s visit. No torn or detached retinas; flashes are subsiding; macular degeneration is stable; and cataracts are a 2 to 3 on a scale of 1 to 10. I do have three kinds of prescription eye drops to use though. So the news was good - well, as good as I can hope to get.... Sign in to see full entry.

Mother's Mystery Letter

"Come Claim Your Land!" Because it's Holocaust Remembrance Day, and because I have to see the ophthalmologist in a little while and won't be seeing too clearly for a while, I'm posting to you all now. When I was a young teen, my mother showed us a letter. As you may know, part of her family is... Sign in to see full entry.

Oh, Noooo! Goodbye, Kobe!

The Black Mamba and Daughter Dead! Kobe Bryant and his daughter were killed in a helicopter crash. Such a tragedy. He was only 41 years old and a gifted, multi-talented legend who transcended sports. His legacy lives on. Such a loss... It is very foggy here, and on our live news the wreckage is... Sign in to see full entry.

What I Heard & People Wearing Medical Masks Here

Yesterday I was waiting in the car in a parking lot, and a man talking on his cell phone came into sight and earshot from around the corner. He was tall, muscular, wearing a tank top and shorts like workout wear (it's not that hot); had a voice that projected way too well, a freshly shaved head, a... Sign in to see full entry.

He Fell Off the Ramp & Out of His Wheelchair

And it's bad. My cousin Cesare has used up at least ten of his nine lives, they say. He's suffered strokes, heart attacks, paralysis, diabetes, kidney failure and dialysis, limb loss, vision loss - shall I continue? My sis is his caretaker. Cesare was in his wheelchair, exiting the ramp from his... Sign in to see full entry.

Let's Talk Toilet Paper

Finally - The “Good” Stuff Some people don’t care a wild whit about what toilet paper they use. It’s all about price. My dad was that way. The cheaper the better. However, my mom was more into quality, i.e.; comfort. Guess who won? So back when Mr. Whipple graced the TV set holding a package of a... Sign in to see full entry.

I Love The New Pope!

Not That One... It all started a couple of years ago when I saw a show called The Young Pope. The central character was outrageous, irreverent and totally tickled my funnybone. The "Powers That Be" killed him off though, and we were told there would be a sequel show (for which I had low... Sign in to see full entry.

Emotional Voyeurism?

He Got Scalped! Who? Himself. That's what he said, that he'd been scalped! He endured a very extensive MOHS procedure for skin cancer that was present on his head - like about a 2" x 3" patch. It was so big that with the bandage on it appeared he was wearing a yarmulke (yamaka) around here for... Sign in to see full entry.

Reminds Me of Mom. She Put on Her Headscarf and...

probably let 'em have a piece of her mind. I see memories of my Mom in the photo below. It's the look and the headscarf. Headscarf. That's a word and an item that my mother used, along with the word pincurls. Pincurls, for those who may not know, are made with bobby pins. Bobby pins are things to... Sign in to see full entry.
