It's still running strong

The findings could aid in designing “spaces that are easier to navigate and increase well-being” and, because declining spatial navigation ability is among the earliest symptoms of Alzheimer’s disease, could facilitate the design of “new buildings that are dementia-friendly,” he adds.

March madness marches on.

Lenna just called. She and Ed are driving up to Sonora after their visit with old friends at a memorial for another old friend, Susan, RIP.

Sis was telling me of the grand display of weather as they rode thru the foothills.

I was just going to post these shots from about three this aft.

On arrival at the check-in, I told the attendant and he insisted (I knew he would) on my going to the ER.

Long story shortened for sake of brevity and to alleviate terminal boredom,
I'm going to re-schedule the consult for surgery. I'm okay and mobile but have to lose some water weight. They IV'd two doses of Lasix to deflate me.

So I had to "go with the flow" and get x-rayed and give blood for tests, & they ran an ekg. I was more concerned with getting a ride back home, actually. But the driver of the van waited and all's well that ends well and I had a good ride home.

On the way to Fresno.

Ray Wylie?!
was only half aware of him. . . There's a thing with him and Hayes Carl. . .



At the start the quote; "I had an empty feeling after a Dylan show". . . .

As pretty a picture as one of my poems

https://www.mountainproject.com/v/fs-full-nailing-rack---54-pins-17-heads--yosemite-bigwall-hammer/112573338

The redundant treatment, it is that nice a place.
deep in the 'cleft' on the right, is a set of ladders that lead to a balcony with a bench seat
in the middle of the deep chimney. Below the porch is a slowly widening crack in the right corner, that climbs back left out of the alcove, at the overlap/flake to step onto the balcony ! .9+?

Thanks for taking me along for your ride, mouse. I don't get to Fresno much anymore. But I always understood, it is the greatest town in California.

Hi Mouse,
Do you have a new date for the consult on the surgery?
Thank you for the tour of the facilities. Looks like a pretty nice place, and I know you have had good care there. When do you go back?

All best wishes as you continue on the path toward improved health.

I just got off the phone with Mouse.
He is in the Hospital with a lung infection.
He says he will probably be in the hospital till tomorrow.
You are in my prayers, Brian.

He also said his internet access might be off for a
little while. I will call him tomorrow and will let everyone know how he is doing.
