Back in my blogging saddle

Howdy, pardner. I’m back in my blogging saddle, and rarin’ to go [1]. I hope my seven ‘comfort list’ posts interested you. But I doubt they surprised you. My comfort list items contain nothing astounding. Or unexpected. Or scandalous. I’m just an ordinary guy doing the best I can. That’s all.

Sweetheart Vivienne and I had six superb days at Cradle Mountain Lodge [2]. Walking, talking, planning, eating, reading, thinking, and sleeping. Also I listened to podcasts. Several of them. (Indeed I was up-to-date until I arrived home and downloaded ten new ones.) Our time away was perfect. Literally it couldn’t have been better. And it was kind of nice to vacation less than 75km from home [3].

But now it’s back to real life: Medical work. Farm chores. Mail. Telephone. Internet. Shopping. Cooking. Bills. And blogging. Bring it all on.

P.S. Yesterday was my father-in-law’s 92nd birthday. As readers of Alzheimer’s: A Love Story will know, he’s a remarkable man. I wish him continued health, as happy a life as he can have without his beloved Lucy, and an undiminished sense of humour.
