Buddy and I spent some time at the beach today. Cloudy, rainy, glorious. Take no minute for granted.

The Man Who Helped Save the World, One Blanche at a Time

Posted on March 6, 2017 at 4:33pm 1 Comment

Dr. Thomas Starzl, the doctor who performed the first liver transplant and made great advancements in the treatment of organ rejection, died this weekend at the age of 90. I admit I had never heard of him before, but now that I have, I offer him a salute of thanks. His family stated that even with his monumental achievements in medicine, he should best be remembered as a teacher and a friend.

So thank you, my friend I never met, for saving my other friend, BlancheNoE. Good…

Several years ago an elderly friend of mine told me that if she were ever to be diagnosed with a terminal illness, she was going to dump every food in her house and stock the freezer with her favorite food, Eskimo Pies.  I promised her that I and her daughters would cooperate. (Fortunately, her final illness was quick, no time to stock the freezer, which she said was okay, she was ready to go.)

I didn't expect much when I started watching this. I never heard of this guy before, but I don't pay much attention to this sport anymore. He doesn't even have the physique of today's super cut, gymnastic skaters--kinda spindly and limp looking on top. And the music was way too Liberace for me.

But two minutes in, I was in a stoned trance. This man isn't so much a skater as he is a ballerina with a jetpack, terrain tracking over the ice in magnetic levitation. So swift, so…


For Spacemonkey, the next time he comes 'a lurkin'.

That's right. FIVE minutes.

But it takes ten minutes to watch it.

If it can't be laughed at, it hasn't happened, ever.

If we can't laugh we'll drown in absurdities and socially acceptable small-talk requirements.

YIKES ! ...just read your blog on VH about the dolls. It makes me sad that if this was 30 years ago I'd assume it was some nice old grandma who makes dolls leaving presents to bring ? Serial killer. No doubt.
