Prom Date

A young man - the son of family friends - came to our house today and asked my daughter to the prom. He was so nervous, but he was gracious and polite. He even brought a bouquet of flowers. She said yes. 

I was sitting on the couch, but I heard everything. It was so sweet. I found myself getting misty. I'm officially old - my baby is going to the prom. 

Un joven - el hijo de amigos de nuestra familia - llegó a la casa hoy y le pidió a mi hija a que vaya al baile de graduación. Estaba tan nervioso, pero fue muy amable y cortés. También le dió un ramo de flores. Ella dijo sí.

Yo estaba sentado en el sofá, pero escuché todo. Fue tan dulce. Me sentí muy sentimental, y lloré un poco. Oficialmente soy viejo. Mi bebé se va al baile de graduación.

South Perry Pizza

When I woke up this morning, I had an unbearable craving for South Perry Pizza. More importantly, I couldn't stop thinking about my friend Erin. My wife treats me really well, so she drove me all the way to South Perry to fulfill my wish. 

Everybody wants me to stay home and sleep, but man, I get so damned bored sitting in my house all day every day. Boredom cannot be good for my healing. And besides, my physical therapist said that I really am supposed to get out and walk a couple times a day. 

My baby girl Whitney had pizza with me today. 

Here's my new look with short hair. I don't like the new hairstyle, 
but I am thankful to be alive. My hair will grow back. 

At South Perry Pizza, I was really hoping that I would see Erin by some chance, but it didn't work out. As we were leaving, I asked several of the waiters if they knew her. They all said no. Hmmmm. So then, I left a note for her on the bar and just asked them to give it to Erin when she came in. I had no idea if she would find her note or not, but I decided to just trust the universe to deliver the message to its proper destination. 

We saw these beautiful spring flowers outside the pizza place. I was just thinking, "I should take a picture of those flowers," when Whitney jumped out of the car and said, "I should take a picture of those flowers." Apparently, she learned something from me. 

When I got home, Erin re-posted my note on FB, so I guess the message found its recipient. Everything must have worked out. She said the note made her sniffle. :)

Before the Stroke

This afternoon, my daughter and I took some pictures, and we found a few shots that I took a few days before the stroke. This is a photograph of the sun shining through the dried branches of cow parsnip.

Whitney's Braces

Whitney is following in the footsteps of her father. She got braces on her teeth. 
Hopefully, she will have them fewer than six and a half years... 

Los Brackets de Whitney

Whitney está siguiendo en la huellas de su padre. Recibió brackets en los dientes.  
Espero que los tengo menos de seis años y medio...

Yarrow Sprouts

It has been several weeks since I blogged, mostly because I have been so sick. I'm slowly improving, just in time to notice the yarrow sprouting from the ground in my back yard. It encourages me greatly to see new life in spring. 


Brote de Milnerama

He pasado varias semenas sin escribir en mi blog, mayormente porque he estado enfermo. Ahora estoy mejorando, justo a tiempo para notar que las plantas de milenrama están brotando de la tierra en mi jardín. Me anima mucho ver la vida nueva en primavera.
