It is good to be back in the saddle. After crushing my collar bone to bits a week and a half ago I am back to work and ready to work. I had surgery on Thursday and got a plate installed with 8 screws holding everything together. Lots of baseball games and movies were watched. Gobs of pain medication and copious amounts of tea were consumed. I got pretty far in my books (see the sidebar), but was not able to finish any of them. They are pretty deep and take a lot of mental energy, but the educational experience was worth the work.
Thanks to everyone who sent me a note and a “get well” card. I was more than blessed to feel cared for and not alone.
