some sad news..nothing going on here in Arkansas either. I feel like doing a lot of cooking this weekend - going to turn on my Paula Deen side and bring out the butter and cook! Hopefully a little cooler here, may turn the AC up and pretend it is already fall!

I don't know. The news on the board has been a bit upsetting. I will read the book I am reading. Ladies luncheon?! I don't know. Maybe there is a museum exhibit I can visiit.

i haven't been on the board here much lately... agreed, more sad news than i can remember.

I'm 6 weeks past my colon resection and bag take down surgery, and have been busy recovering and enjoying no chemo since july 3rd.

I honestly feel better than i've felt in several years.

today i plan to read and catch up on this board.

this weekend... University of Michigan Football game, and go visit my son in college on Sunday at University of Cincinnati.

i maintenance chemo in another week.

oh yeah... i'll be praying for all the sad news on this board and praying for all the families and fighters!

stay positive for your own battles... and don't sulk in the sad news of others!
Just pray for them, and get back to taking care of yourselves.

hugs

Joe

I will say a special prayer and give toast to my CSN friends who are having a rough go of it lately. We will be gathering with friends and family this weekend to celebrate my big 60. I'm not wild about birthday parties for myself but it makes my wife happy and it will be nice to be with close friends and family.
Have a nice weekend all!

Not much around here this weekend. My son has a baseball game on Saturday...but I might not be able to make it...I am dealing with low WBC ... And a terrible cough and sore throat. Hopefully my dr can give me something to clear this up so that I can get back to chemo next week. So I pretty much plan to take it easy this weekend.

Am I actually still in Phoenix? Complete with flash flood warnings.

Just hubby's doctor appt. today and wade back home. Of course will be watching my Arizona Diamondbacks game on TV later. We're not the best, but may make the "wild card" in the playoffs. I enjoy it anyway.

JBG still off chemo. Gamma Globulin shots are next to kick up those platelets.

Hope all have a good weekend.

Luv,

Wolfen

I've been invited to do a check out flight at Hill AFB on an F-16, then the rest of the weekend will be spent at Yosemite National Park, free climbing El Capitan.

Oops, my bad. Just go home from the hospital a couple hours ago, with a freaking fever, so I'll spend the weekend staring at the TV and reading.

I would love to see the Ring Cycle at Bareuth! I have all but Gotterdammerung on DVD, but even on a huge screen, it's just not the same as a live performance.

Yes, I have all four of the James Levine production in New York. I wasn't impressed with the ending. I forget how Brunhilde died, but it wasn't by immolation while on her horse.

Sorry if that was a spoiler for some, but as Bugs Bunny said "Ehh, it's opera, did you expect a happy ending?"

There are much worst endings in opera than the dead of Sigfried and Brunnhilde! What about Violetta? LOL.
About brunnhilde I remember she inmolate her self and her horse on the funeral pyre of sigfried wasn't ?
Hugs my Wagnerian friend!

Yep, that's how Brunhilde punched her time clock. Violetta was sad, but Carmen even more so

Hugs back at you, after the Aria.

thank you again pepe for asking each week what we all are doing as i feel this brings us closer to each other. just to know the good things we can do despite having or had this cancer is so uplifting. and reading about when someone is not doing good lets us rally around them. i am trying to get my strength back up as i had chemo #4 on tue, wed & thur since monday was a holiday. went to a grandsons' football game today & then this evening to a columbus ohio zoo presentation at the church where 1 of my grandsons goes to preschool. we live in indiana & columbus is about 2 hours away so we were glad they came with all the animals. all the kids loved it! then reality set in & i realized i was exhausted so we had a carry out for supper. tomorrow is rest day for me. everyone have a good weekend!

Hope you rest comfortably today!
