Hello Every body

or at least the 1 or 2 bodies who actually read my blog

Well after a three day drive of 2040 miles I am in way off Arizona for a few weeks of rest and relaxation.

The drive was relatively uneventful no accidents or incidents

Haven't updated much the last while so I expect it will be a long time between replies

On the home front my war on diabetes hasn't been going well and the little bastard appears to be winning. my kidneys ar starting to show signs of damage and I have little or no feeling in my feet.I have developed hyperpotasium though it may be potasiosys or some equally silly name. My kidneys are no longer effectively filtering and disposing the potassium out of my system. This of course mandates another dietary change and another prescription. This growing old thing is entirely over rated and I don't recommend it to anyone.

I guess his should be a wake up call to me and I should start putting things in order like my will, morbid fucker some days aren't I

Anyways if you want to be named in the will just tell me what you want and what you are willing to do to get it lol

As per Chris's meme

The list of books she has seems particularily heavily weighted to books that appeal to the feminine set so many of my favourite books don't appear here

4. Harry Potter series - JK Rowling great little read enthralling and though marketed to kids is more than entertaining to adults
8. Nineteen Eighty Four - George Orwell*** Over billed in my opinion
24. War and Peace - Leo Tolstoy Entirely too long and complicated
25. The Hitch Hiker's Guide to the Galaxy - Douglas Adams Absolutely hilarious and should be a must read
32. David Copperfield - Charles Dickens
40. Winnie the Pooh - AA Milne
41. Animal Farm - George Orwell
61. Of Mice and Men - John Steinbeck
65. Count of Monte Cristo - Alexandre Dumas
87. Charlotte's Web - EB White
99. Charlie and the Chocolate Factory - Roald Dahl
