I’m on my bed of ease, writing with the ‘droid. The tablet reminds me that there was a time when computers were not supposed to be tools for writing.

Which is to say that my hip replacement surgery recovery has progressed to the cranky stage. This afternoon i may have to belly up to the laptop!

The surgery went well — or at least the results are more than satisfactory.  My longsranding vestibular problem kicked in, which is why I’m still debating whether to jump over a smart car rather than leaping tall buildings.

I am learning the ‘droid, though, and this includes using a mobile sketchpad –it’s clumsiness excuses the crudeness of the results, results which I may or may not be able or inclined to show you.

So there’s about all the news. I had to tell Sam why someone might  code her current situation as eating bon-bons and reading trash novels. “Trash novels” he understood, but “bon-bons” eluded him. Ah, the lacunae of the younger generation.

    Cranky is fine, and trashy novels are appropriate, but limbo is pure hell! Happy speedy recovery!

    So glad to hear from you. Cranky is allowed post surgery. It has always amazed you that the vestibular doesn’t cause more cranky.

    I’m waiting patiently to see one of these sketches. Yawn. Put down the Bon Bon and sketch.

    Barbara, disgustingly enough he doesn’t like chocolate. So I don’t expect Hershey bars when he visits.

    Jan, thanks for the good wishes. I’m reading a lot — most of it pretty flaky stuff:-)

    I didn’t realize you were having hip surgery. Hope you recovery fully and quickly! Enjoy your down time.

    Don’t tell Sam what Bon-bons are; there will be more for you.
