Another Father's Day To Celebrate (With A Difference This Time)


The difference being that my son is with us for this one (he and his wife live in a small apartment in our basement) and he and I have patched up a lot of rough spots in both our pasts. I think he realizes as I do that we're not omnipotent and we better set things right before we both shuffle off this "mortal coil".

My eyelid surgery got pushed back to July 13th (a Friday!), and I'm looking forward to posting pictures of my two swollen black eyes as soon as I get back home from the same day surgery.

Speaking of medical stuff, I'm also due a colonoscopy so that's on the agenda as well. That's where they stick a tube up your rectum and check for colon cancer. They also stick it down your esophagus to check for ulcers and/or lesions there. The same tube. Which I fervently hope they use on my esophagus first.

You know? We medical folks are the worst to have ourselves checked out, and I think I figured out why we don't practice what we preach: we see so much sickness and terminally ill patients that when it comes to us (well, me really), we'd rather not know about it if anything is going on. That's my opinion, anyway.

In other news, I'm taking long vacations away from The Straight Dope (my favorite message board), Facebook and even my beloved World of Warcraft. I am letting my daughter in law play some of my other characters. I just feel I am spending too much time indoors and not out in the sun these days, and this will help me get outdoors a little more.

Also, our grandson "Top Cat" (aka Julian) comes to spend a couple of weeks with us at the end of this month, and I always look forward to that.

That's it for this time except to ask you please not to forget to click on the purple icon below to feed the unwanted pets in shelters nationwide, thanks.

Happy Father's Day to all the Dads!
