Hiatus ahead. Starting tomorrow.
Long story. Tomorrow I have surgery to replace one of the wires on my new pacemaker/defibrillator. Normally, this is a routine procedure and I should go home in the afternoon. But there may not be enough tissue to thread the needle. If that’s the situation, a different surgeon comes in the next day to insert another fish hook wire into my heart.
This marks my sixth surgery in three years. That should qualify me for a volume discount. Or frequent flyer miles.
The Mystery Woman has had to endure four surgeries with me since we re-upped.I told her I was a geezer hunk. But I failed to mention it was going to be one hunk at a time.
Segue alert goes here.
During my absence, I hope you can amuse yourself by watching the U.S. Senate caterwaul over whether to seat the new guy from Illinois. Pure Barnum and Bailey. No wonder the public has such a minimum of high regard for members of Congress.
My recommendation to Sen. Harry Reid: cut the crap. Seat the fellow. Let the courts shake it out. But get about solving the huge economic problems festering in our nation.
Fix Wall Street. Fix housing. Fix the credit industry. Fix the banks. Fix the car makers. Fix the wars. Fix our constitutional rights. Fix the !!!***####!! wrong-headed bailouts.
These are much, much more important than the junior senator from Illinois.
That’s all for the moment. Hope to return in a couple of days.
