LOCAL VIEW —l’m B-a-a-a-ck—

This is just a quick note to thank whoever it was who managed to get the book about the Great Galveston Hurricane to my hospital bedside. It is all a blear to me, but I do remember that book appearing out of the haze.

Currently I feel considerably worse than I did before I went in. I have the ironic sense someone clouted me with a sledgehammer, and I am suppose to thank them.

I was going to announce I had died, pretending to be some other very sad person, because I thought it would be fun to attend my own memorial like Tom Sawyer. Also poems are suppose to sell a lot better once your dead, and by being just a little bit dishonest I could get more enjoyment than dead poets do. However in the end my blasted honest side kicked in. I’m alive and, if not well, am kicking.

Now to withdraw to maps of the North Pole. Ahhh!  Peace at last! (Though I must admit it looks a bit boring up there…. at the moment.)

  3. Excellent to see that another grumpy old fart dodged the grim reaper. You are on the right side of the grass and that is all that matters short term. The recovery is a bitch and if you experience what I did it feels like being put under killed about a 1/3 of the brain cells but that improves over the next weeks to months. Take it easy, your body has been through a lot and enjoy life and the family and lots of little walks and little naps to help the recovery process.
    Cheers, mate.

  4. Glad to hear you’re baaaack, excellent from a fellow Granite Stater who got pneumonia for Christmas and read to the end of the weather Internet, more ice news!
