Many thanks and much love to all the friends of this space that have offered support, both monetary and sincere well-wishes.
FYI the reason for the fact that I no longer am able to offer consults is this: Typing hurts, talking hurts, life hurts! Laff a minnitt!
The right shoulder, it turns out, needs a shoulder REPLACEMENT, according to the orthopedist. And the left needs rotator cuff repair.
These procedures are extremely debilitating and not all that safe for a near 77 year old organism! Being on the short end of this dream-living experience, I will pass. Cannot figure any way to handle either the costs OR the months of incapacitation/therapy etc.
Verily I say unto y'all, shit doth happen!
Feel free to stay in touch, I read every message and appreciate them. Until my landlady finds me dead on the couch with book in the a[, at least.
I am extremely grateful to 'Sailor' Bob, Jhn Wheeler and Wayne (Ram Tzu) Liquorman for their solid and accurate pointing to my real nature (which f course is also YOURS.)
Love is Real. The Rest is Dusty Dreams.
