Happy Birthday Rightie!

hip replacementsMy right bionic hip has been in continuous service for 3,652 days (10 years); my older left bionic hip has been in continuous service for 4971 days (13.6 years).  During my last visit to the orthopedist and a few x-rays later, I got the good news that they are still aging gracefully.

9/11 + 20

It’s been 7,305 days since I watched the Pentagon burning through the office window – two wars and billions of “borrowed” dollars gone down the rabbit hole – Al Qaeda, Taliban, Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya, Arab Spring, NSA, ISIS, Syria, Iran, a mob storming the US Capitol, and the recent inglorious end to the United States longest war.  We are still in the midst of the worst Pandemic the world has seen since 1918.  And the USA is still awash in cultural and political hate and discontent!

The more things change, the more they stay the same!
