Rapparee, I don't envy you this,
and I sincerely hope the results of the surgery
are successful and an improvement
over your condition pre-surgery.

Is this carpal-tunnel stuff
from a lifetime as a librarian?

The cut at the base of my hand is perhaps a half an inch wide. The one on the backside of my elbow is about five inches long. Both hurt, the long one the most (unless I bang one or the other and then that one hurts the most).

Rapparee is recovering with as little pain as survives the pain meds. The splints came off yesterday, now it's just elastic bandages and good gauze pads. And meds. Suggestion: if you ever have this sort of surgery, do not accidentally stretch or knock the injured parts. That causes you to say things that would cause Sister Innocenta of the Spring Flowers to swoon.

Pete the song I linked to that wasn't available in the UK on that link was written by Ola Belle Reed. I am aware of 3 recordings. 2 by Ola Belle Reed and one by Critton Hollow String Band. I think you would really like it so maybe your own google search will turn up a recording available to you

Echo

By Christina Rossetti

Come to me in the silence of the night;
Come in the speaking silence of a dream;
Come with soft rounded cheeks and eyes as bright
As sunlight on a stream;
Come back in tears,
O memory, hope, love of finished years.

O dream how sweet, too sweet, too bitter sweet,
Whose wakening should have been in Paradise,
Where souls brimfull of love abide and meet;
Where thirsting longing eyes
Watch the slow door
That opening, letting in, lets out no more.

Yet come to me in dreams, that I may live
My very life again though cold in death:
Come back to me in dreams, that I may give
Pulse for pulse, breath for breath:
Speak low, lean low
As long ago, my love, how long ago.

(Source: https://www.familyfriendpoems.com/poem/echo-by-christina-rossetti)

Tomorrow, Friday, I shall be attending the funeral of a former student. We kept in touch over the years & in all that time, he unfailingly addressed me as 'Sir'. Most students make the change from 'Sir' to 'Nigel' or 'Mr.P' eventually, but not M. I remained 'Sir' until his letters stopped.

The service will be this next Saturday. I think it's about laid out. Opening with Ann Hills and Cindy Mangsen's recording of "Land Where We Never Grow Old". Mid-way, a friend who knew Judy from childhood singing "Far Side Banks of Jordon". Concluding with "I Can See You Now", written by Bruce Murdoch. In between, A couple of more "churchy" songs, and words from family and friends.
   Did I ever mention here that she had a huge collection of collectible frogs? Quite a few of them will be on a table for folks to take as mementos or for children; she would have loved that; maybe we can say "She'll love that".
   It will be at the church where she has been very much a part for almost if not forty years. I'll sit down with the pastor tomorrow to go over it with him. Tomorrow would have been our 34th.

               Dean, the frogprince

A dear friend of mine is seeing her adult son through his convalescence.
He'll make it, but it was scary.

All his young life he has participated in things like snowboarding
and has trained hard and well,
managing to compete without any really dramatic injuries.

Then he gets an invite to a party at someone's house.
There's going to be food, so he shows up hungry.
Coming in, there are some kind of flashy strobe-ey lights going on.
When he gets clear through the door,
he does a face-plant, just passes out cold.
It's a hardwood floor.

So now they are wondering if the lights triggered a seizure.
The facial fractures required plates. Yeeks.

Got a phone call from the ER this morning. J-boy slipped getting out of the shower last night, fell, broke his arm, and banged up his face on the way down. Luckily, no concussion, but he does have a rather spectacular black eye. Picked him up and brought him back to my place for a couple of days. Healing thoughts would definitely be welcome.

My friend of 57 years, who set me up on a blind date with Judy, and was our best man, invited me to their family thanksgiving at his daughter's home. I was taken a little off guard when they said very little, and then no more, about my bereavement. But I came to realize that that was what was right for today; I had a freer, happier day than I could have imagined.

Dear Dean, these uncredited words will have to speak for me:

"When we take our vows and say, "until death us do part," we are fooling ourselves. Death only brings a physical departure. A marriage and the bond between a husband and wife make two people into one. That means that even when we lose our wife, we are still left with that special love that burns inside and never dies. That internal love burns on even when our wife is no longer with us. Clinging to that love inside us, even though it can never be physically expressed again, can carry and sustain us in her passing". (edited)

                                                                Much love to You, your Family & Friends,
                                                                                                                                  Nigel.
