Still Ticking

Doing well on surgery +5, now on one crutch -- huge in terms of improved mobility, I can climb stairs and sleep in the bed instead of downstairs like another of the dogs. Hopefully the stitches will come out next Friday, but we'll see.

Heather and Pip are in Virginia, helping look for a kid who went missing after a Metallica concert in October. Sucks for a lot of reasons, but there's always the hope that they'll find something that helps the family -- mainly, evidence that the kid just ran away and will be calling home sometime.

Right now I have some writing to do -- stay tuned for a post on a freelance project that hopefully will be web-posted so I can send yinz there.

Thanks for all the well wishes -- hoping I'll be back on something like a normal routine shortly.

By the way, anybody know how to take your own picture using that @$#%^$ little camera at the top of the Mac screen? I can't find anything in iPhoto that refers to it, and the search function in Macs always seems to miss the point for me ...

Oy. How I can relate to the joy of all those "little" milestones of once again being able to do things for oneself.

If I did not have the OddMan here (or some sort of OddMan equivalent), the last surgery would have been pure hell. He was very literally my right hand for 3-4 months.

[Raises glass of wine] Here's to skilled orthopods, quick recoveries, tolerant spouses and brilliant dogs.

To take your picture with the Mac camera, you need Photo Booth, which should have come with your Mac. Try searching your hard drive for it. Once the photo is taken, you can export it to iPhoto if you want.

Thanks, Kanga.

Don't be ridiculous. The dogs were sleeping in the big bed upstairs with me.

They said it was nice being able to stretch out ...
