How old am I in dog years? [Dec. 29th, 2008|04:13 pm]

[Current Mood |ditzyditzy]















I'm just about ready to leave for my brother's annual holiday party - which is always
on my birthday - it's nice to be home instead of the hospital ^-^ My father was also
in the hospital & released right before Christmas. Tests showed he had a small heart attack
& he had surgery to have stint put in. He was in the hospital for 2 days - I'm jealous lol
I never have had such a short hospital stay .. He will have another stint put in next month -
I think that because my father was always active, he remains pretty healthy for being in his
80's. He also paints & does Zazen meditation, I'm sure that also helps.

I've been baking bread for the past 2 days & my house smells really good - I wish I could
enable a scratch & sniff photo in lj. ^.^



Hugs & Love to all of you

Today my Father asked "What country are we going to send that painting to?"
& he was delighted when I told him - he mentioned a good book he had read that took place in your homeland - I'll have to ask him again what the title was. keeping your anonymity safe on my reply here... :)

Perhaps your ears were burning the other day (an expression that means someone was talking about you) - my Dad was saying how sad he was when he asked one of the nurses about Handel's Messiah & she had no idea what he was talking about. He was sad because he thinks that certain classics of art, music, literature - should be part of our knowledge base. I mentioned you & how you shattered that poor stereotype as you are in the know about pop culture AND classical topics..

*blushing deep red* Oh, my... I don't deserve so much praise. Thank you!

I agree with your dad about culture being deprecated nowadays. It's so sad.
I try to learn as much as I can, but I am aware that I'm quite ignorant and foolish. It startles me when people don't realize of their own ignorance in a positive way... like "Oh, I should know this because it's important, so I'll try to learn about it." I think the world could be heavenly, if we only... just a little bit... all tried to acquire a bit more culture. At least, many mistakes of the past wouldn't repeat in cycles, I think.

Usually I fend off King's kiss attacks, but I thought it would make a cute picture - but they were moving to fast to pose properly
