March 27th was World Theater Day. What a poignant day to celebrate now when we are unable to go to the theater at this time.

It's morning on the prairie and the coffee is percolating.

Gill, we have bought a new kitchen sink, faucet, and three light-fixtures to be put into our kitchen by the handyman. We were hoping he would be doing that soon after he put in the new countertop tiles we had selected. He was going to buy them (with our credit card) so he could load them up and bring them over whenever he was ready to work. Well, the current situation has put a stop to this. I am hoping he will get back to me next week about what his work schedule looks like now.

It would seem we may not get the kitchen refinished for a while.

Nice to see you, ladies. The more ladies the better as far as I am concerned. <img src="/images/emoticons/thumbsup.gif" alt="thumbup">

All went well today at the hospital. As I have said before we have very few Covid-19 cases in our county as of yet. But the hospital is taking all precautions. I completed a set of questions at the only open entrance to the facility. My temperature was taken to check for fever. I was given a facemask to wear while there.

Blood was drawn easily through my port. Then I waited for the CT scan, drinking the "brew" necessary for a good scan using the access created earlier in my chest. I awaited the results at the oncology center and they arrived shortly thereafter. My oncologist and I discussed the good results. I am doing well. The areas that had cancer in the past are "unremarkable" and "stable" which are good things.

I will not go back for any treatments for now. In three months these procedures will be followed again and we hope the results are the same. That will be a good thing.

Victor was so happy to see me after spending a good portion of the day moping, awaiting my return. It will soon be his dinner and walk time. Almost 5:00 o'clock here.

I've made a pot of coffee and the water is simmering. I have poured a lot of coffee into a thermos cup that I will be taking with me this morning.

So, I've got a long day coming up. The medical portion will all be at the local hospital. First I start with a port lab in the oncology department where they access my port, take blood, and leave the access in to be used later. Then I will go across the hospital to the imaging department and await getting a CT scan. That may occur between 10:15 and noon. When that is complete I need to await the results so I will go back to the oncology department. When the results are given to my oncologist she will call me in for a talk about it. We are hoping that no new cancer growth has appeared. If that is the case all is good and I will go on home to await the end of the pandemic. If new cancer has shown we will have to discuss our options.

When that stuff is finished I will try to get a bit of shopping done in the afternoon for things we may need in our home.

Magical Deception

The only true beauty in her life. It shall always be a secret. Deception is the thrill, wonder, and exquisite pain she feels. She absorbs it each time surreptitious contact is made.  Complete and utter trust. Accepted and used. She lives in wonderment that she found it. Just for her. Just for them. To share. Only a dreamy fantasyland.  But more real than reality in the...

Love & Affection Challenge - A Bibliophile's Sonnet

We walked a lane in Wales one morn in May Our eyes took note of blooms on shrubs quite near. We sniffed some sprigs near Hay on Wye that day, Each bush had scents and smells both clear and dear. A whiff was like old books on stands and racks,   Each big thick tome could match that scent so strong. And we had smelled a few in bins and stacks The smell was just the same, we were not wrong. ...

And When The Morning Comes

Do we know, can we see, will we feel what we've known, what we've seen, what we've felt. At the moments we knew, simply seeing, and feeling, that instant, most precious,  the most treasured point in our lives. For so quickly it seemed, all our times were as one,  but so short in the paths of the world.  Just a minute it took, that was all, then we knew, we could see what we were,...

The Whacking of the Trees

  Whack!  Whack! There was a long pause and then, once again... Whack! She tossed the fallen limb down onto the forest floor beside the trail. It had served its purpose. Then she nodded at the hikers who were passing hesitantly by her along the pathway.  This was the last time. The latest results showed no sign of cancer. Perhaps not gone. But no sign. It was good enough. She...

All That Matters

"I adore you" The words were spoken heard and accepted with gratitude and delight Not always offered aloud in the past even when understood within the trust of a heart in need The adoration of a chorus of friends and lovers from life that passed sincerely revealed The latest to be tendered this approbation in words as the solace of destined sublimity and jubilant embrace The embrace...

Remembrance Challenge: Camp Funston

In March 1918, some of the first recorded American cases of what became a worldwide influenza epidemic, also known as "Spanish flu", were reported at Camp Funston. The 1918 influenza pandemic, usually set as January 1918 up to December 1920, was an unusually deadly flu epidemic. It infected 500 million people around the world. Probably 50 million, and possibly as high as 100 million...

Never Forget the Good Times

Ding Dong! The doorbell rings. Opening the door. "Trick or treat!" Out the door goes the pup. Romping about with visitors.   Each one gets the same. Handing out goodies. Asking each one what they are. Really! Oh, perfect! "Get back in, Victor." And they are off on their way. Now he's standing up on his hind feet. What's this! He's trick or treating. Good boy. You get a treat. ...

She Waves At Trains

My lady is so naive she still waves at trains whenever they pass by just hoping that the engineers might see and someday, perhaps, to make her day they'll pull the whistle loudly just for her. Just for her. So shy is she in normal ways but those fellows are quite far away, so she feels free, so free to be the funny young girl she'll always be. She'll never change. She rattles on about...

Trick or Treat

Nimble digits completed the act. The victim was trundled up and preserved for what was to come. Wrapped up in the webs of woe. For the prey. Not for the spider. This was her life. Her reason to be.  Miss Peckinstaff gazed out her parlor window at the dim courtyard behind her brownstone residence on the Lower Eastside. It was delightful to watch the arachnid complete the chore under the...

A Comedy

When I was young and loved humor Comedy was a movie that I knew  Where I would be laughing out loud While watching with glee the whole time Growing up, that belief had changed Comedy was a funny stage play Where you could watch people act While the ending was comically tragic Life has been sometimes like that It started with laughter and smiles But the ending was now so painful Even...

People are just like clouds That float above the sky Without real direction But beauteous from afar Winds can push us forward And then may push us back Might even be the ones That scatter us apart Sometimes they blow gently To make us into one Other times much stronger Thus breaking us in twain Sometimes there is darkness It makes it hard to see Even light in slivers Can barely...

The Wall

My closed fists keep banging on the wall. My lungs hurt so much from losing air. It's becoming hard to breathe. I never stop pounding even as I can see blood flow out from my bruised hands. My mind is in a panic and the fear starts to creep up through my whole body because I don't know how to swim and the wall is giving me no respite so I can get my breath. I have begun to feel weak...

Strong heart is beating in a harmony, Each movement set angelically with pride.   So subtle that it matches musically, To center stage exquisite form does glide On pointe, on tiptoe, swaying with the tune The wind caresses, gently singing free. So calm her soul, like summer days in June But every step is like a storm tossed sea Behind sweet lips and eyes, typhoons may hide, With calmness...

The Bluebirds In My Heart
