Playing catch-up

July 28, 2011

It has been a very long four months since my last post here.  Health conditions, as well as my physical location, pretty much dictated when (and for how long) I could remain on a computer.  For almost a month I was flat on my back after having fallen backwards from a stepladder onto the concrete floor of my garage.  Nothing got completely broken, but I was out of it for a while.  For the most part, I was unable to sit up.  This makes working a keyboard – even a laptop – very difficult.  I did a lot of reading during that time.

As they say on airplanes, I “can now move about the cabin”.  I walk with a definite bias to port (that’s right for non-nautical types) but I can walk now, which is a good thing.  For quite some while, any rear view you had of me appeared to be a large map of Africa with the entire continent colored purple; shading to deep red and orange as you near the Sahara.  There is also a sharp, red spike running north from the coast of Libya, across the Mediterranean and touching Greece.

But enough about that.  My mental powers were working hard while I was laid up and I’ve jotted down quite a few new idea for posts.  You’re going to have to bear with me, however, before I can sit down longer than 30-seconds without my back hurting.  I have a wireless keyboard, which is great, but it doesn’t help much when the monitor is sitting almost ten feet away from my easy chair.  I haven’t a chance of reading it from that distance.

At any rate, I do promise to get back into the swing of things and begin posting again.

T.O.M.
