A most happy Christmas to all!

Since I will only be online sporadically, I want to wish everyone a joyful holiday and new year!

I've been in the hospital since last Wednesday and I'll be in a few more days as well. Fractured knee, tibia, with complications that was left too long because no insurance and could not get care. Operation for a temp fix tomorrow. Good times...

However, getting some care now and it's a start!

The sweet little tree in the window is from the inestimable +Kris Silva who brought me essentials from home - camera, lenses,fresh batteries, single coffee maker, snacks - and then stopped and bought this tree and decorations and wore her jingly reindeer antlers while we decorated. Huge grins here!

You all can make me happy by having the warmest hug filled holidays and filling your days with rich memories!
Love to you all

A huge hug of thanks to  +Kris Silva  for helping me single-handedly wrangling my kitchen after the plumbing overflows and nastiness of last week.  She didn't just clean, she sterilized my kitchen as if it were the most sensitive lab in the world.  Every single dish and container and utensil - all washed and scalded.  The floor, the surfaces, the inside of the refrigerator.  All suspect food tossed. All cans and boxes wiped down.  I'm blinded not only by the purity, but by her generosity, energy and great company.  Kris is a talented writer and illustrator with a heart as big they coime.  Witty, sharp with a wicked sense of humor and a wonderful whimsical side, she is a great person to have by your side.  You hardly even notice her OCD - just a flicker of longing as she surveys the rest of your world that clearly needs her discipline.
So here's a silly, undisciplined scamp of a flower with thanks on every unruly petal.   I promise to let you have at the new shelves  my mom bought for me you when they get here.

Geminid Preview

The Geminid Meteor Shower peaks tonight and tomorrow morning in the wee hours.  If last night's and this morning's activity is any indication, it will be amazing.  Here are just 3 of them - quick and dirty processing - that started around 9 pm last night and lasted till about 6 am this morning.

 I Haz a Grump

The week is not starting well.  Yesterday, a flood of sewer water came surging through my kitchen sink, flooding the kitchen and adjacent dining area.  Apartment management has been minimally responsive.and has not returned any call or email. They vacuumed the water and put a commercial dryer on the rug.  They sent a plumber who snaked the drain and called it fixed, though anyone knows that will not take care of the underlying problem of the sewer water mixing in with the potable water.  They did not clean the kitchen,  the surfaces are still contaminated.  I have pathogens multiplying all over and a compromised immune system.  I have an untreated  fractured tibia and torn ACL:(no insurance=no treatment) and every hopping movement is agony.    I can't get to my refrigerator easily and any other food must be thrown out, including that in the cabinets because the germs are airborne as well and if they weren't before, the dryer fan is giving them a heck of a ride.  
Yes, the county has been notified.  So far, no joy.
That's just for starters.  

Yes, I haz a grump.

Just needed to scream for a minute.  No response necessary.
