Moving Slowly Along

Not much to report today except two contacts with stations I've worked previously in Panama and Cuba. I worked HP1/IQ6CC and CO8LY .

We've been getting heavy rains here in the evening and early morning hours. The weather seems to be going absolutely "nuts". The tornado in Oklahoma has caused an estimated $2 billion of damage.  I fear we've become the slow cooking frog in a pot of boiling water.

I'm waiting for the test result from the VA Hospital. I hope to hear something today. This weekend will be a busy time.  There's a big music festival in Charleston and we have relatives coming to visit. Several of them are musicians.

The  Vandalia Gathering  is always a lot of fun but it would be much too difficult to wander around the grounds due to my limited walking ability. I'll stay at home and chat with the relatives.

Have a nice weekend John and I hope if your not able to make it to the festival that the relatives will give you a private concert. Also hope you hear from the VA hospital today as well.

Hello Mike,

I always keep the guitar in tune!

I got a bad report from the MRI scan this time. The disc is actually protruding into the same passage way as the sciatic nerve; which means that my back, leg and muscle pain is going to continue for awhile.

My next scheduled test will determine whether the nerve has been "damaged". If so, I'll just have to deal with it, and make the best of the situation. I really don't like the thought of living a "sedentary" life at this point in time since I'm only 65 years old but whatever happens; no one ever said life was "fair" and I've never expected it to be.

Yes, I am depressed about the situation; but I've dealt with other bad situations in this short life, and I'll continue move onward with whatever cards life deals to me.
