Short Stop

Yeah, I got my Burning Man tickets today! Actually, yeah, I purchased three tickets and paid convenience fees and secure shipping. I will have them in hand soon. I never have liked Will Call at the Gate. I like to fondle my shiny bits of cardboard as the year rolls by and the day to pack the trailer and head to the desert approaches.

Nothing of note. My brother stopped by for a visit, he's doing four days on chemo, four off, in rotation. He does not feel sick, just a little achy and fatigued. he is still losing weight, down to 175. He is still driving a bus, remarkably. We dance around the subject of his death, but not as badly as I had feared.

Much busyness tomorrow, I have to get a cake and maybe some pies started. Lady D will be in Friday morning, whee! Genius and I will go get her.

Ah, K-Bay, any style of birthday song will be outstanding and stupendous. May we begin with reggae?

gOopsie, didn't realize that Burning Man was that far off. But you're very welcome for the ditty, and I thank you for your kind words. :)

Not too far from lift-off....
