November 4, 2004 was my first posting, and many dopey self portraits followed. Why I don't wait until the sleep has left my eyes to take a picture, I can't explain. Most of my pics are shot before 7 am.
And the worst are in the bathroom mirror. O well. It is the record of life that matters, and I have that in spades. The blog has maintained what modicum of sanity I possess, has helped a great deal to win arguments about when things happened (ha!) and reminded me that I have way too much time on my hands. And of course has kept me in touch with you, the very best part.
Yes, I have been away from the blog this week, having not much going on but sitting and knitting. Thursday I got my knee MRI'ed which was easy and the results will be as expected, a fix of the torn meniscus. I will have a fast recovery and then it is back to business. In the meantime, my quilt class is full (scheduled for 11/8/12) and I am so looking forward to getting newbies excited about quilting. Yay!
The menagerie is doing well, but I have been missing seeing the fish, as the pond is just about covered with leaves. The Dawgs love to run in the heaps of leaves, and are so happy that today the temps are getting back to the 70's. Perhaps Dave will get the leaf blower out today and corral some of the fallen debris from the big wind storm of the past days.
Some Dawg portraits from the past year, and a family picture of Dave as nap leader.
This month we are scheduled to see the docs at Vanderbilt University, where they are doing lots of research on Parkinson's, and are looking forward to seeing what they have to say.
