what with a couple of days in the ward and missing in action at the plantation. Still trying to recover from that, went to my own doc Thursday just to say hi, I think. SU says that it takes 3 days to recover from each day in the ward, so by next week I should be good to go.
Didn’t get out much in the evenings, just sorta hung out at the trailer. Read a Clive Cussler novel, Polar Shift. Can’t get ahead of the pool, the little creatures keep hiding from me, then returning full force after a couple of days. Just keep at it, I suppose. We did make it to the remote kitchen for date night, it was especially sweet this week.
As for the whole episode, I think it is interesting how I’ve changed through the years. As a young man, I was very fearful of death and dying, scared of the ultimate fate. Through the years, as my faith has strengthened, I’ve come to accept that it is a part of life and that it doesn’t scare me at all. I’m far more concerned about the people that would still be around. Interesting.
We tried to watch a movie after our date, The Naked City but it wasn’t much to our liking, so we ended it about halfway through. Some of the older movies, classics they may be, are just a bit too “old”. Hard to define that but it wasn’t for us.
Last night, we watched an interesting movie about the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan called The Beast. Interesting movie. I think I’ll have to watch it again to get the full impact but it is one of those films that show the worst of both sides of a conflict. Not much redeeming value in this one other than perhaps dispelling the myth that humans are good by nature.
Searching around for a Peter Green clip, I found this YouTube video about him, too short but wel done. The more I listen to his playing with Fleetwood Mac from ’67 – ’70, the more I realize BB King was right, he is the best blues player to come out of England, better than Clapton by a long shot. And I like Clapton!
Let it rip.
