I have been terribly remiss at posting here and for that, I apologize. I could give you the excuse that I’ve been extremely busy and while that’s very true, what’s really going on is my husband’s health issues – as I’m sure many of you have guessed.
I’ve been mum on the subject because this isn’t a place for me to bitch and moan about the trials and tribulations of my life but rather a place to celebrate all the good that’s in it. I’ve been mum on the subject because it’s personal, and some things should be kept that way, especially when they’re about someone else’s medical problems. In a nutshell – the brain tumor has recurred yet again and he’s been doing a course of radiation after chemotherapy failed to work. We drive an hour to Baltimore each morning for a 7 AM time slot, the first one of the day.
He is really ok – honestly – and is sitting here with me tonight watching the baseball game. The O’s are in the playoffs and they’re playing the New York Yankees. I hear it’s terribly exciting.
The photo above was shot along the driveway coming home from work one day this week.
I’ve been going to bed pretty early and haven’t had the Nikon out much at all so all of these images you see in this post have been taken with my Droid X2. The frames used in each are from Michelle Batton.

And from almost the same vantage spot on a foggy morning.

George in the back seat, going to get take-out for dinner last Friday. We bought the new car as soon as we heard we’d be driving to Baltimore every day. And I love my new Subaru Outback 2.5i.

So back to the whole brain tumor thing . . . I really don’t want to get into it, ok? It’s not as if we both didn’t know it was going to recur. That is their nature (glioblastoma multiforme) and he’s lived for over 8 years after being given 6 mos. to live back in 2004.
So we’re good. We really are.
