Happy Trails

As much as I hate to do this, I fear I have little choice.  My little blog here is going dark for the next little while.  After several delays, I start the radiation treatments for my cancer today - 2 sessions a day - until Friday when I have my stem cell transplant.

This intense therapy will likely knock me off my feet awhile - say, several weeks or so to say the least.  I'll let you guys know when I'm back but in the interim there'll likely be very little activity on my blogs, Facebook or Twitter.

Like the bishop said to the one-eyed call girl, I hope you'll keep an eye out for my return.  I'll miss everyone and look forward to seeing you all again soon. Cheers!

Break a leg! Oh. Wait. Wrong encouragement thing. Just know that your blogging buddies will be thinking about and praying for you and will be all excited when you make your triumphant return.

Ack. I finally come back and now you must take a reprieve. But it's truly understandable. Take care! I will miss reading your funny daily blog posts.

And tell that cancer where to go, k?

Hope you kick cancer's flat, hairy ass, Dufus. Focus on your recovery and don't worry about us. Good luck and hope to read you again when you return Stronger. Faster. And with X-Ray vision. Or some other cool superpower.

Very best of luck to you. Looks like you've got some mighty positive thoughts on your side here in the big blog world. Take care!
John, my prayers will be with you, my Canadian friend. Thanks for letting us know. We'll keep subscribed to you in the meantime and look forward to your return.

Kick that cancer's ass!
I'll say a prayer for you, NoName. I'll miss you while you're out, too. And whenever I look up from Colorado to see a faint glow in the northern sky, I won't mistake it for the Northern Lights, I'll know it's you in Canada, getting better.

Wow, learned something new. Nonamedufuswhosmellslikecorn?

I still stop in, and hadn't said anything because, well, you know. Some of us are good with these kinds of topics, and some of us don't handle them too well. "You're in my thoughts", said the girl from Independence.

Kick its ass and come back so we can all put a positive spin on it as we cruise on down life's road. :-)

I just dropped by to say "hi" and "I hope you're doing okay." Hope you'll be back before too long. Take care.

My Back Pages - October

Well, folks, I read seven (count 'em) seven books in October. One I didn't finish but even at that I hit the magic number 50 I estimated for myself by the end of the year. The six books I successfully waded through were, firstly, What Happened, Hillary Clinton's book on her bid for the Presidency. I''m a bit of a political junkie so I get off on this stuff but still it kinda struck me as one long whine over losing.
Next up was the excellent Canyon of Dreams: The Magic and Music of Laurel Canyon. Laurel Canyon was the fabled area outside of Los Angeles where many musicians and artists lived. Known as a 60s enclave, the book takes a look at just who lived there over the last 80 years. A fascinating read.
Next up was Lightfoot, a biography of Canadian folk singer Gordon Lightfoot. He may have been responsible for some iconic folk songs but he was also quite the womanizer and boozer. Enough said.
Then I read Dan Brown's new tome Origin, the fifth in the Robert Lan…

My Back Pages - November

I know, I know, I know I should have reported in before now. But sometimes real life just gets in the way. I attempted 5 books in November. I say attempted because I slapped a big DNF (did not finish) on Neal Stephenson's Cryptonomicon. I just can't seem to get into this guy. It's the second or third of his I've given up on,

Not so the other four, starting with a biography of Stephen Stills called Change Partners. This followed by a hilarious biography of the guy responsible for National Lampoon called A Stupid and Futile Gesture - How Doug Kenney and National Lampoon Changed Comedy Forever.

I ended the month reading yet another biography, this one of the man behind Rolling Stone magazine,. It was called Sticky Fingers: The Life and Times of Jann Wenner and Rolling Stone Magazine. A fascinating read.

So last month I hit the magic number 50 I'd imagined for myself back in January. If I roll this month into my yearly total I'm at 54 books. And I still have Decem…
