I don't think I'm getting signal out to you. Even though it's showing 'message sent'. Cloud cover probably.

I trust you had a pleasant visit in Cullman.

Randall,

How old was your niece?

You're welcome, Randall.

Very nice to receive your update. Hope your journey is safe and that you come home refreshed and renewed, ready for a busy spring season.

Randall, Yes, I guess I do respond to a lot of discussions and comments. I spend the mornings read and writing mail. I got into such a nice habit of doing nothing useful, I simply can't or won't break the patterns. I love my afternoon naps, and will hang on to them as long as I can. With spring arriving, I will be outside more. I'm beginning to assemble the seed starter stuff and that begins in Feb/March. 
I feel great! no pain anywhere, all scabs have fallen off, no gastro upsets. I get a cancer chemo of Herceptin every three weeks and that is a piece of cake compared to what the heavy doses were. Just a little weary, but heck! that is OK. 

How are you joints, muscles, and attitude holding up through the winter? Have any cabin fever? Do you keep yourself busy, one way or the other? 

Take care, dear friend, and happy days.

I was young when I saw that movie, Randall. "Birdman" was long and drawn out, and for a young kid it was a "nothing" movie. I've always used it as an example of being re-vamped into a sci-fi to make it watchable. Not many people understand the humor the way you did. Thanks.

Re: the whole sports business - it ain't no thang, Randall.  We all have our tastes and preferences.  As Lt. Howard Hunter, late of the Hill Street precinct once said:

That is why there is chocolate and vanilla.

Yeah I meant the act of going to church, not religion. It's generally religion, the actual beliefs and harmful practices, that get the bashing (and for good reason). I've heard atheist churches getting bashed...

I hear you ... all too well, sadly.  The business of prayer is as futile as it gets, and for anyone who says, "Well, some times god gives us a miracle," I have a rebuttal:

"Ever pray for someone to get their lost limb back?" [at times I just LOVE whywontgothealamuputees.com!]

I'll gladly stipulate the whole "Hell's Angels" scenario, though I can't see that happening very often, or at least not with me.  I don't go to church; I have zero use for them, with the possible exception of when my daughter gets married (still sorting that out).  For the large portion, however, I have no problem identifying myself as an atheist and don't care who knows it.

Sure, I use common sense.  I also prefer NOT to back down.

Thank you Randall :)

Randall have a happy Thanksgiving!

Indeed:) The four years also included a radical job & qualification change, it ate up whatever spare time I could have :))

Thanks for taking the trouble to post pictures for us. 

If you don't get the flu shot then you will be making more of a contribution on average to our yearly flu epidemic, than if you do.  I got my flu shot, at $30 it is not a problem.

You're as far away as Indy but probably in a different direction.

Tend my grandkids.  lol  Or they tend me.  I was tending my mom till she passed recently.  It was a good thing, though I miss her.  And I tend my two dogs.  If I tired real hard I could probably be a bar-tender.  If I had a bar that is.

I wish I could hide out till this debt ceiling thing is resolved.  I'm tempted to turn the news off till I get an all clear signal from...someplace.  If you're in In we're almost neighbors.  I've not met anyone from ky on here yet. Several from In.  Ky is more religious then In I think.

Sorry you didn't find romance.  But glad you had a great trip!  Travel to another place, culture, and history can be incredible. 

I forget if I said it.  When I was a young soldier in the 70s I was stationed for 18 months in Turkey.  For most everyone else, it was a hardship tour.  For me it was an adventure.  Changed my life.  If a trip like yours can give you new perspectives, then it's worthwhile.

Coincidentally, I'll be off line for a couple of weeks, starting Saturday.  Trip to China.  My in-laws live there and it's time for a visit.  For me it's a chance to depressurize and let others be in charge, and go with the flow.   Also I've been in the mood for some Chinese food.....

Yes, crystal air is in my mental picture of a Mediterranean trip.  Being on the ocean it would stay clean.

How about posting pics for us :)  ??
