Special note concerning the May discussion & June nominations

Tomorrow is the 20th and the day that the June Nominations and the May discussion begins. Both will be led by pilotbob this month, as I will be going to the hospital tomorrow for an operation to repair an indentation above my right eye that resulted from me tripping over a speed bump a little over a week ago and fracturing my skull.

I feel like I'm in an episode of the old "Untouchables" TV show. Last week I had my face broken. Tomorrow some hired muscle is going to rip my face off. Yes, they'll put it back when they're done fiddling around under the hood—and hopefully they'll put it back in the same place—but it will keep me out of commission for a few days.

Thank you, BOb, for stepping in this month.

Wishing you a speedy recovery WT Sharpe. At least you won't run into any homicidal chickens in hospital.

Thanks, everyone. I'm getting ready to go now. The doctor told me this morning I should probably be able to sleep in my own bed tonight. The way they were talking last week it was going to be a overnight stay. It's basically just a face lift with a touch of reconstruction. No biggie, but I have no idea how I'll be feeling tomorrow.

When I talked to your physician, she confided in me that the only reconstructive surgery needed would be on your sideburns.

Seriously: I hope your stay is brief and that you'll be feeling better in a day or two.

Surgery went well and I'm back home. Thanks for all the well-wishes, folks!

Don, where did you get that picture of me?

Seriously, I saw Mr. Sardonicus in the theaters. Trivia: Like many William Castle films, this one had a gimmick. It had two endings, and just before the movie ended, the projectionist stopped the film to allow the audience to vote on which ending to see. Naturally, we all voted to see the ending where things ended badly for smiley boy.

It will probably be a few days before I do any reading.

As I was being prepped for surgery, the surgeon offered a last minute alternative which I accepted, so rather than cutting me across the top of the head and pulling my face down to pull the bone back into place, he made two small incisions in a couple of the wrinkles in my forehead instead and went in that way. It was a much simpler operation, and with a little luck, there'll be no permanent numbness, as there would have been along the scar line had he done the face lift.

So now I have a bit of a headache which will, no doubt, continue for a few days, but some really spiffy drugs to keep it in check. Life is good, and I'll be back for the July nominations.

Hospitals are where they wake you up to ask you if you need a sleeping pill in order to get to sleep.
