Midnight Oil 2016-06-06 “Shared pain is lessened; shared joy, increased — thus do we refute entropy.” – Callahan’s Law
To kind friends and absent companions.
Here’s a toast to long-absent, and much-missed friends!
Stash -- it’s good to “see” you, sir!
I hope you and your family have been well.
A real treat, Sir. I have missed you.
I’ve missed you too Sir. I really haven’t been online much for quite a while. I’m hoping to change that up a bit. I’ll have to see how well my energy levels hold.
If I am on and seem to drop out, please believe it’s not the company.
I understand. Working on getting back up to speed myself. Had a heart attack on Easter weekend. Hope to see you more but understand.
Didn’t mean to appear to ignore you Paddy! Everyone is doing very well although youngest son is struggling a little trying to find a direction. He’s stable, just treading in place mostly.
Dad passed around the time I stopped going online much. Yes, the two related. It’s been difficult.
Don’t do it again Sir. That’s an order.
I have a stent, meds, and a concerned wife. Found out I am diabetic as well, so I shoot insulin twice a day. That was more of a surprise than the heart, really. I guess 320 is a bit high. They got agitated.
Elena had a knee replacement the next week so we have been helping each other.
I am sorry about your father. I know you were close and he seemed a fine man.
Thank you. Please give Little Mouse my regards. Talked with Gentle Lady recently?
She is not online much as it seems to be hard for her, but she is upbeat as always. I did talk to her briefly after the heart attack.
She and David seem happy.
If I have another one, I will be in trouble. I gathered there might even be foot stamping involved.
I saw this recently and thought of you. How are the daughters?
I realize we’re not being very entertaining for the daywalkers tonight. Maybe one of these nights (soon) we can pull an all-nighter like the old days. The laughs, the puns, the random waft of expelled gasses (not saying who was responsible, for any of it) seemed to generate a few early morning chuckles, after coffee of course.
But not tonight my friend. Rest well and dream of talking kitties.
Good night, Sir. Sleep well. Need to try myself.
You saw a bunch of blank space? (Yes, with your super duper admin powers you’ll probably make me look demented for saying that. *sigh*)
Oldest daughter is in a very select Master’s Program for Dance at New York University. She just left for summer break and is spending a couple of months in Korea with relatives before coming back here. Younger daughter is doing much better than I did at her age. Working as an accountant in the Big City. I speak to both of them often, see them as much as they can and still have lives (not enough for me of course), and miss them every minute they’re not at home. I had forbidden them from growing up, but that’s about the only time they’ve gone against my wishes.
And good night to you. Foot stamping is to be avoided.
