Putting Things in Perspective

My family has been truly blessed this past week. The Geezerguy, Jim, while still hospitalized due to minor complications has come through his open heart surgery quiet well. We've been blessed to have two of our boys, Sage and Skooba, with us during this stressful time. Lone Duck is about to arrive to help his Dad through the tough post hospital days.

Jugglesorcerer is poised to come if needed but offering continual phone and mail encouragement. He even was instrumental in giving Jim one of the brightest spots of the week. See, 3 1/2 years ago he married Buttercup, who is mom to Patrick and Kristina (instant Dad). Then Patrick married Rose and in short order produced Riley (instant Grandad). JS called Jim at the hospital on the 24th to announce that Riley has a brand new baby sister Kaylee. So Great Grampa Geezerguy got to tell all of us about his new great granddaughter. It's the first time he ever got to be the teller instead of the tellee of baby news in our family!

Yes, blessings abound.

On another front three American icons left us this week. All were famous for their smiles and the joy they brought to everyone. Ed, Farah and Michael each had their individual crosses to bear but each was also instrumental in helping countless others through their work and charities.

May they rest in peace.

See ya down the road,
Yarntangler.
