It’s been a good week. The election is over and we can tune into ‘brain drain’ without being inundated with the political rhetoric. The weather here is synonomous with that of early September mornings. Crisp and then turning beautiful. It’s allowed for motorcycling to work, bicycling in the late afternoons and scintillating walks to the gym. As you can tell, I’m still trying to prepare my body for the inevitable. Tomorrow I visit my brain surgeon to get the results of the last MRI. I would call you all out for a wish of luck but I”m too scientific for that. I have good karma and regardless of the results, I shall deal with it with the utmost of dignity. Ryan is here for a two week stint working in Pittsburgh at UPMC. His fiance flies in tomorrow and we will all celebrate his birthday, along with that of my sister on Sunday. Yes, he was his aunt’s birthday gift some 29 years ago. Robin still works part time thanks to the economic conditions that have set in and we still search for where we may be this coming spring. Job offers pop up on a weekly basis but we must be wary of weather conditions during the summer. Those offers from Florida look delicious at this time but when you contemplate what it may be like in July, I’m reminded of the sweltering sun of Selma where the mercury rose into triple digits. Time will tell.
