MS & Coronavirus

A few things…. This is NOT a hoax. We do not have this under control, nor do we have enough tests. This is NOT no big deal. This will get worse before it gets better. If you have any other health issue: chronic, acute, immunosuppressed, stay out of populated areas. Stores, grocery stores, arenas, hospitals,…

Oops…I did it again.

2020 started badly. Some how, some way, I went to bed on New Years Eve, awoke at 10:30pm, only to find it was still 2029. Used the bathroom, went back to bed, dog got me up at 1:30am and my right foot was killing me. I chalked it up to foot cramps, took a muscle…

Day 5: Oklahoma!

Grass! Green grass. Green grass EVERYWHERE! Drove eight hours from ABQ to OKC. Got in early, took a nap and then took Miss Eleanor to the OnCue Dog Park. Home of the two largest dog statues in Oklahoma. However, prior to arriving in Oklahoma, I made a pit stop in some place called Shamrock, TX.…

Cactus? Cacti?

I have no clue, nor desire to know this, but I do wonder if cactus is the state flower or tree? So many cacti. And they are a protected…something in the state. Never want to see another cactus again. Nothing personal, just not my thing.

Day 2&3: So. Much. Beige.

I made it to Las Vegas after 40 years in the desert. Ok, it was more like four hours in the desert, but you get the picture. Vegas was fun. Did you know that by Nevada state law, prostitutes/escorts/call-girls/whatever you call them, can not quote a price for services over the phone? Melissa, you may…

Day 1: Moses….

Today was bad. Started off bad and looks to end up…not so good. So why did I name this post “Moses?” Simple, the drive from LA to Phoenix is nothing but beige, barren land. It went on forever and ever. And ever. If Moses wandered around in the desert for 40 years, well, bless his…

On the Road Again

Can’t you just hear Willie Nelson? Anyway, driving from LA back to Tennessee via Phoenix, Vegas, Utah/Colorado, touch of Wyoming, then Kansas, Missouri, Calhoun, Kentucky and finally, Knoxville. As before, my trusty sidekick Eleanor will be riding shotgun. No time table, just me, my MS and the dog.

Still invisible….

Thinking of my friends, Anne Luchessi Spina and her husband Jim today. Both have invisible, pre-existing medical conditions. Anna has Arnold Chiari Malformation (which I also have a very minor case of), Spiro -something I can’t say, let alone spell, and her husband has had a kidney transplant. Jim is in today for I believe…
