At least through the next 3 weeks and possibly even until the end of May, I’m going to be offline.  I will be going through a host of medical tests and one surgery.  I hoping some of the tests will tell me why I cannot sit at my computer for more than 1/2 hour at a time without total back exhaustion, and just maybe show me how to get my blood pressure down.  The surgery is for cataracts to increase vision in one eye … I’ve already lost vision in the other one.

Don’t write me off, please.  I’ll be back . . . I hope.  At 87 things like this are to be expected.  So why didn’t I expect them?
