I know this is the lamest excuse ever, but after a large variety of
e-mail problems involving a change in nearly everything, I just need to
check if my connection with the group is OK again. Meanwhile, I am still
suffering the consequence of my long-gone, once-broken hip. Of the past
13 months, I have spent 11 in hospital which is where I still am now.
You can imagine that keeping in touch with the group is vital to my good
---Hope you'll soon be back on your feet! My cousin lost his one hip
in a motorbike accident in his teens, and has to have the thing
replaced every ten years or so. Major drag on the lifestyle! Still
presumably better than the days before such surgery.
Anyway, hang in there. As our local saying goes, "weeds never die."
You'll soon be better than ever again. :-)
In other news: some time ago I posted here about the handwritten
letter I received from the Jehovah Witnesses, and that I took the time
to write back. Well, lo and behold, today I received a new communique
from the same lady, this time accompanied by a thick wad of pamphlets
conclusively proving that evolution is wrong and life must have been
designed. How delightful. I tell ya, another few exchanges and I'll
have me a convert to rationalism. Or I'll be a Jehovah Witness. Or in
the loony bin. :-)
Go check out my Flickr photos (in my sig below): I uploaded a few new
ones, including one of a very cute tree agama.
