Tossing Pebbles in the Stream

This blog is my place to sit and toss pebbles into the stream. The stream of Life relentlessly passing before us. We can affect it little. For the most part I just watch it passing and follow the flow. Occasionally, I need to comment on its passing, tossing a pebble at it to enjoy the ripple affect upon Life's surface.

Well I am back, again!


Well my computer was not the only thing on the was on the fritz.

I sustained an eye injury when a hook at the end of a closer chain on the shed door hit me in the eye and hooked under my eyelid and ripped in for six stitches. "Oh, I have hurt myself was my usual expletive! ", I heard myself say. Followed by a "Damn!!"

It is no fun being alone in such a crisis. I picked up my milking pail and headed for the house, where I managed to phone for an ambulance. with blood streaming down my face.

Then, you wait, when you live at the edge of the area. Finally, the First Response crew from the adjacent town showed up. Shortly, the ambulance arrived and transported my to the local "hospital" where they sent me on the the hospital in North Bay. Luckily, the eye specialist was available. He gave me what I guess was a date rape drug and with a local anaesthetic he stitched me up, as I floated in and out of awareness. For someone who does not take drugs as a rule it was an interesting experience. I must ask what the drug was. I certainly relieved me of my anxiety. I have a strong aversion to touching my eyes,{ my nipples and my feet.} ( I think I just told you more than I should!) I was to go today and have the stitches out but my ride could not make it. Next week perhaps.

My computer has crashed for the second time this month. I wish I knew more about it. My old laptop worked for a while before it crashed.
Being without a computer is stress full but it freed up time for me to read a book on "Nixon in China". He used to be my favourite President to hate before George Bush, the worst President of the United States ever. I have gained some respect for Nixon in the foreign affairs field. He was uniquely prepared to open up communication with China. This book, revealed the complexity of his personality and gave me some insight into Kissinger, Chou En Lai, and Mao.
I am also rearranging my house to accomadate some changes around here.

Gosh Philip, I have been concerned about you. I wondered what happened to you and if you hurt yourself in some way, who would know, living out there alone? Do you have ANY neighbors who visit some times? Who cares for your animals when you are gone? I am very glad you are ok. Your poor eye looks terrible. Hopefully it will heal soon. I hate it for you. Take care of yourself, guy!
