Play A Loud Tune On A Paper Horn

Scatter confetti over the floor and sweep the old year out the door.

I am packing up the car and leaving to visit an out-of-town friend who is recuperating after back surgery. 

I won’t be posting anything while I’m away.  I’ll just be enjoying the company of my friend and recounting old times.

So, here’s wishing my readers more happiness than all my words can tell you.  May 2012 be a happy new year free from want and filled with blessings from God.

UPDATE:  January 1, 2012 at 5:22AM—I became quite ill just after posting my wish for everyone to enjoy their New Year's Eve celebrations and phoned my friend to say I was sick and thought it wiser to stay home and not spread my cooties.

I went to an urgent care facility, not an emergency room, because it was Saturday and no doctors in private practice operate on the weekend.  After having spent nearly three hours waiting to be seen, the doctor informed me that I have a sinus infection and bronchitis.

I was given a prescription for Levaquin (antibiotic) and Tussionex Suspension (cough medicine with codeine).  Over the past year, I've had two bouts of pneumonia; once in April and again in September.   Before you ask, yes, I've had my annual flu shot and because I have diabetes, I've also had my pneumonia vaccination.

I'm looking forward to feeling better and would really like it if I wouldn't get sick again any time soon.


  1. Happy New Year to you, your friend and all those in your life!

  2. @Pat Austin,

    Thanks for the well-wishes. I need 'em bad.

  3. You poor thing - prayers and hugs to you to recuperate soon!

  4. @classic_film,

    The antibiotics finally started kicking in and I'm on the mend. Thanks for the hugs. I'm going to try to go back to work tomorrow.

  5. Take care of yourself. Feel better and hoping to see you back at work soon.


  6. @asbreezy,

    Doing my best to get better. Thanks for stopping in.
