Fall Waxing DArk Moon
Kate said this morning, “I have the zombie walk down.” She referred to her walker and its clump, clump rhythm. I suggested we have her greet trick or treaters. We could hang a sign on the walker that said, “Caution: Old Person!” Talk about scary. (pic: Halloween 2008, Leadville, Co.)
Yesterday she altered the periodicity of her drugs and had a great improvement in her overall attitude. Instead of taking 2 percocet every 4 hours, she now takes one every 2 hours. I can tell advances in her movement and attitude each day, sometimes hour to hour. She’s tough and stubborn, a good combination for recovery.
“I just thank Jesus for this fine Norwegian.” A line I read in a newspaper article a couple of years ago. Me, too.
On a more Y chromosome note. Vikings vs. Steelers. The line gives the Steelers the edge with three points. Maybe. Antoine Winfield is out with a bad ankle. Rothelisberger has great stats this year in the passing game and Winfield out will put someone inexperienced out there. Even so, my idea is that the Viking’s d-line will keep Ben on his heels enough to neutralize the Winfield problem. If they can do that, Favre can score points with screens and mid-level passes since the Pittsburgh d will concentrate on All Day Peterson. Let’s call it more like even. Whichever team has the better day.
