FBTN, Continued...

6. I was going through some medical paperwork and found an unfamiliar brochure about diverticulosis. Then I thought back long and hard to the day of my endoscopy/colonoscopy. I vaguely remember, while I was still sedated and pretty out of it, the doctor telling me something about me having a mild case of this. So now I'm thinking, what next? Osteoporosis? Arthritis? When will I stop collecting illnesses? Luckily, according to the brochure, all I have to do for this is eat more fiber. I'm glad it doesn't involve another pill.

7. I've taken to writing some semi-erotic to erotic poetry lately. I don't know why exactly. No, I won't post any here. It's only for a very, very select few to see.

8. Speaking of poetry, my poetry website, Watershed, is newly updated. Please feel free to stop by and have a look around:

9. I have off work this coming Wednesday. It is my furlough day for May. It's also my 51st birthday. How do I plan on spending the day? Getting a blood test and getting my car serviced. I know, I know- thrilling stuff. Maybe I'll get Billy to go out for seafood for dinner with me.

10. I also have this coming Friday off for the big camping trip in the Pine Barrens. I can hardly wait to get there, and to hang out with my friends. I've been looking very forward to this. I still don't have arrangements made for the dogs yet. I don't know exactly what day Billy is leaving on, and that makes a difference.

11. Everyone have a great, great weekend...


  1. Keeping my fingers crossed, so you find someone to look after the dogs, so you can enjoy the camping trip. Hugs.

  2. Thank you. I think I;'ll probably end up offering my son some cash to do it. Everyone likes cash. Lol!

  3. Happy Birthday man. You have to watch your diet with diverticulitis...Peanuts and popcorn can cause all kinds of trouble. I think you can look up a list of foods you should avoid and you will be okay.

  4. Bobby- Yeah, I heard about that from my mother, who has the same thing. We were talking about it on the phone last night. I haven't been very big on either popcorn or nuts for a long while, although occasionally I have a hankering for cashews.
