Sunday, a few notes


Watched The Rewrite with Hugh Grant, great comedy.  Finished watching The Baker with Damian Lewis, a second great comedy. Both on Netflix.ca.

Diagnostic news: angiogram last week showed new lesion, 90-95 blocked artery. Therefore now triple not double bypass along with aortic valve replacement. No surgery date set.

Dialysis last week was smooth.

Will and 2 POAs: Saw a lawyer to make up a will and 2 power of attorneys. Long overdue.

My Funky Hands: I have lost some flexibility and dexterity in both hands. Handlin a computer mouse and handwriting with a pen more difficult, but I can still manage both in an awkward fashion. A bit tiring.  My novel now looking more likely to be a novella, sliding down to a short story.  Perhaps a haiku.

Local weather went from sickly and steaming, to a little cooler and wonderful. I love looking at the green trees.

Began reading a bio of James Dickey and his collected poems.  Writer Pat Conroy, a student of Dickey, said that Dickey made Hemingway seem in comparison like a florist from the mid-west.  You might remember him as the author of the novel, Deliverance. The movie with Jon Voight and Burt Reynolds. Dickey played a small part in the movie, a small town, menacing sheriff.

  1. Was daydreaming about Victoria Harbour, searching for history or images………and found you, Mr. William J. We’ve been part time neighbours (178) for awhile, only speaking briefly once (my apologies). I’m not much of a reader or a writer, but I am intrigued by your blog, like your style.
    Feel free to reply to my email. Also, please let me know if there’s anything I (we) can do.
    Take care, Karen
