The picture came out well, for all the light around. I like it dark, you can hide a lot of mistakes in the dark. LOL
George Moore wrote the Haven of Rest. This is the chorus:
I’ve anchored my soul in the "Haven of Rest,"
It takes about 20-30 minutes to set up the drawing equipment. Shirl played the piano today, she requested I recite the verses rather than sing them.(I still do not know why?). LOL
Hope your day went well. We were over cast, and they are predicting rain tomorrow. After Holy Angels we drove over to see Sonny. My first time since catching the bug. I kept a distance because he certainly doesn’t need a cold.
I was happy and sad. He was up out of bed, the first time I have seen him up in a month. Sad because he said he was in constant terrible pain. There are still cob-webs in his head. Everything is not clear to him. He stopped the head nurse and asked how many more dialysis treatment he would have to have. She knelt down and tried to explain as well as she could that it would probably continue always, since his kidney was not functioning. He asked her what if I don’t want to go back? She said very kindly, Mr. Helms that is a very serious decision. You need to think of it very hard and discuss it with you family.
He said something to the affect, I don’t know whether I can do it or not. If you send prayers up, mention Sonny. Some of you have been there. I have been up and down nursing homes and VA hospitals where folks were outside their rooms looking forlorn and pitiful. It means more when it is YOURS that is in that wheel chair looking forlorn. It tears your heart out. But like I said, It is good to see him sitting up. Maybe the Physical Rehab will help the pain and he will only have to deal with the dialysis.
Thanks for coming this way!
ARTISTRY OF INSULTS. When Insults Had Class (no 4-letter words!!) These glorious insults are from an era when cleverness with words was still valued, before a great portion of the English language got boiled down to 4-letter words, not to mention waving middle fingers.
