Forty-Eight Years

It was 1965. The 1964 elections had come and gone with LBJ promising to keep us out of the war in Viet Nam and there I was, on a landing craft on my way into Chu Lai, Republic of Viet Nam. I haven't believed a Democrat since.

 In other news our health problems aren't getting much better. Those stupid holes from the stent procedure still haven't healed and I'm still having some pain. Linda Lou had a cataract removal last week and then yesterday she fell over in the middle of the night and busted open her head. An ambulance ride, a CT scan and two staples to close the wound.  Naturally it was shortly after I took my nighttime pills and went to bed.. I'm not really supposed to be driving to the county seat while full of Trazodone but we survived. Somehow.

 Anyhow the health issues are making it difficult to concentrate, I'm mostly sitting around watching old episodes of Gunsmoke and Bonanza on The Western Channel, along with old movies. If I can ever get my brain working again I've some blog posts percolating.

Sorry you are having these health issues, I enjoy your blogs. I also suspect you may have once been one of my professors who was also a western writer. If so thanks for the knowledge you gave me it has served me well.

Oh, no! Poor Linda Lou! Poor Peter! Y'all get better, I'm praying for you!

I'm sorry to hear of your problems. My sweetie says you have to be really tough to get old, because of all the problems. I hope you both improve.
