We’ve been in western Pennsylvania now since Saturday. I have yet to see the sun. If it’s not raining, the skies are filtered with heavy clouds and my Seasonal Affective Disorder kicks in. However, the visit has proved so far to be victorious in a physical sense. The neurosurgeon found nothing but progress since the brain surgery. My cancer surgeon suggests no need of a trache anymore and has scheduled an out patient stint to cover the opening in my neck, trying in vain to cosmetically improve this face. Good luck with that. A clean bill of health was celebrated with the erasure of Osama Bin Ladin. Our host, Jay, thrilled us with fireworks and flag hangings until the wee hours of the morning the other day. Neighbors came out of their homes, searching for a clue as to what all the hoopla was about as most of them had already retired. But my friend is the consummate pyromaniac and if there exists but a slight reason for fire or an aerial display, he will surely come through. As a Christian, I have never celebrated or remotely relished in the death of anyone. But honestly, there was a sense of accomplishment in my heart when I heard the SEALS were successful in their mission. Justice was served and I felt better. In the meantime I have been able to procure Canon’s best of it’s line. I was successful in acquiring the 85mm 1.8 portrait lens, however, I’ll use it more than for just that. I have gone into the greeting card foray as several followers have asked to purchase my cards that have my photos inserted on the front opening. I will delve more into this in the near future as fellow workampers follow this blog. Having a side business makes great sense for those of us on the road. The monies garnered are paltry, but that is not the main intention. Your own business can alter your tax situation admirably for you and I would love to share with you my good fortune in discovering this outlet.
