I've got a nasty case of food poisoning at the moment (NB: AVOID the "Teriyake Turkey Burger" at, ahem, Jarl's Cunior!). I hope it's at its worst: aching, fever (101F. The introductory puking was last night!). If you can spare a prayer, I'd appreciate it...
From Norris Battin:
Please pray for Sonja's mom who died yesterday, for Sonja and her daughters and for Amy who will undergo a mastectomy on Tuesday.

The month of May has been hard. Loss of a friendship. Loss of a neighbor. Loss of a grumpy old man. All of whom I came to love.
And therapy. Opening up those long ago sealed and buried boxes of memories and emotion has been soul shredding. Lately I feel like I am crawling naked through glass.
