Signs of our times

And this front page photograph in the Seattle Times.

You think?

Meanwhile, in the good news department....
My mother-in-law passed her lung exam at the University of Washington in fine style.  "See you in six months!" said the doc.

I had been rather apprehensive about this visit because I had never been to this facility before.  But between directions from my wife, suggestions by my brother and fine tuning by "mom", we got there on time in spite of the traffic and congestion, it was a piece of cake!

Speaking of cake.  The VA called and told me the tissue samples from my thyroid are benign!!
Woo Hoo!


  1. Way to go "mom" and Ron. So glad your tests were good outcomes. You are inspiring. Teresa

  2. Yo Bro.,
    That's quite a tale your signs tell. Let's see if I can sum it up correctly;
    (1)Cigarettes are so expensive that (2)you'll have to write a check but in order to do that you'll (3)have to get a payday loan and (4)pawn some jewelry. Once you've done that and bought your cigarettes you'll only have enough money left to (5)buy stuff at the "Once in a Lifetime LOW PRICE" store and finally have just enough left to (6)gamble on the lottery in hopes of having enough money to once again buy some cigarettes!
    Yep I think I've got it, thanks for the great story.

  3. Good for you, and Mom !You are doing such a good job.

  4. Woo Hoo indeed! Guess I'll need to find something else to pray about now. :)

  5. Woo Hoo indeed!! MUCH relieved. Hard to believe anyone is "wondering" if logging promotes erosion.

  6. whew! I am very glad to hear this good news. yes! I'm also glad for mum in law. See you in six months is great to hear. Love the signs; once in a lfetime indeed.

  7. Double good news - you must be relieved.
