Operation

I’ll be leaving for the surgery center in about an hour. Frankly, I’m eager to go and get this over with. Joan and I had a lovely time, and she is now on her way to the airport. The visit was WAY too short.

We drove out to Lake Coeur d’Alene yesterday–how breathtakingly beautiful it is–and had lunch later at one of my favorite restaurants, Tomato Street. We returned to the lake house in the evening, ordered a veggie pizza, visited and sipped wine. A doe and her fawn paid a visit–a spiritual experience to see these animals almost near enough to touch.

Today’s weather is cloudy and overcast.

If the pain pills work, I’ll blog in the morning.

In the meantime, please think lots of good thoughts.

More later.
