Mom 2008 at her 70th Birthday Party

Looks like my mom’s not coming to visit Friday for the weekend. She’s been having some health problems for the last few weeks. The doctor said it was mud in the gallbladder. Tomorrow morning a few hours after I pass (or fail) the second drive test down in Tacoma, she will have an extensive gallbladder test.

I’m sad. She was crushed to cancel out of this weekend. I have no idea how many days my mother has left to walk this earth (in this form). I hope that it is nothing too serious. I hope that she will be able to come up in October. 

2007 South of Depoe Bay

It has been many years since the two of us hung out and even longer for just dad and I. Neither one of my parents have seen my life in the city. My father retired from Spirit Mountain Casino five-six years ago. So, that would be 2004 or 05 and I moved to Seattle, December 27th 2003, I don’t know where I’m going with this. I’m certainly glad I got that sticky left arrow key fixed without prying it off.

The last time just the two of us spent time together was when Kirk and Miryam got married two years back in Bend, Oregon. In near by Sisters, I purchased a cool square dancing shirt with a Les Paul on the back, a heavy-duty leather belt, and big brass and pewter colored buckle with a horse head on it (that often draws peoples attention down there). And the time before that was the summer of 2007 when we went to the coast together. I bought her lunch in Newport at a fancy restaurant on the wharf. I put a dollar in a machine and had my fortune read by Zoltar. I also purchased a black Pendleton cowboy hat near a lighthouse a bit south of Depoe Bay.

In some ways I’m a little relieved, only because a bug has compromised my immune system and my energy levels are on the down-low side. I have, however, been dosing myself with a super immune system booster concoction. If you wanna give it a try it works to lessen the symptoms. Here’s the recipe (in the order you place the stuff in the blender):

2 vine-ripened tomatoes
1 segment of garlic
¼ cup onion
6 red jalapeƱo peppers
1 habanera pepper
2000 milligrams of pulverized vitamin C pills
40 drops tincture of golden seal and Echinacea
1 Tlbs raw ginger root
1 Tlbs organic apple cider vinegar
1 teaspoon lime extract
1 –2 cups apple cider (to lubricate the blending blades)

blend until creamy then add ice or a dash of water if concoction is too sweet and turn the machine back on and make it smooth.

It’s late. I gotta get up a five o’clock to get ready for the dive test.
