Thursday, or Thereabouts - April 14, 2016

Brain Fog

I began the morning by gleefully sending off several emails. Each one included "Happy Friday" wishes. It was almost noon before I 'caught' my error. Brain fog strikes again!

Perhaps it was just wishful thinking? Well maybe, but I'm retired so one day is just as good as another. No, it's brain fog and its clouds have descended far too often of late. I'm told I can legitimately blame it on my current health issues (I wrote a bit about that earlier) which in addition to fouling up the kidney filtration system, messes with thinking skills.

Well that's my story and I'm sticking to it! Surgery is May 10 and it can't come soon enough. In the mean time and particularly on this Thursday, when I truly am more "Thereabouts" than usual, I'll leave you pictures of a few places I have been on this day in other years.

April 14, 2011 - Cochin India; cruising the backwaters of  Kerala
April 14, 2012 - Sheepshead Bay, Brooklyn, New York
April 15, 2013 with Sophie in the York Regional Forest Hollidge Tract
April 14, 2014 aboard Celebrity Millenium cruising from Hong Kong to Keelung, Taiwan
April 15, 2015: cruising the garden, checking out the rhubarb.

TGIF? Well almost.
Either way you slice it, a lovely warm weekend sits on the doorstep - see you out there.

  1. Get well soon...... like that you have a picture from Cochin in the blog!

  2. Wishing you a healthier week ahead April. Cochin is one my favourite places in Kerala and the backwaters are magical.
    Take care my friend. x
