It’ s amazing what you can buy these days.  People were standing in line all night just to buy the new iPad3.  What will happen to their perfectly good iPad2’s and 1″s?  Do they just throw them away and will all the information they have gathered remain intact? When these “old” out-of-date iPads which so recently were considered the best thing since sliced bread arrive in the iPad graveyard, will they begin exchanging information until finally one iPad will surpass all others in intelligence?

You can buy new hips, knees, noses, and even a new face.  How marvelous!

I am buying a new arm.  Oh not the whole thing of course,  just a shoulder.  The rest of it is OK.   We live in an awesome time.

I didn’t count on all the added expense though.  All the visits to different doctors who each need something else from you (beside your money).  And the clothes….  3 pair of shoes that just slip on without having to be tied, pants without zippers and no buttons which need to be coaxed into place, and a small new laptop.  Who knew there were so many choices?

We keep a well-stocked pantry, so Dr. Advice (who does not cook) can probably do a good job supplying sustanence until I regain the use of two arms.  This is “cooking school” week, during which he can polish up his culinary skills.  Today is apple pie day.  (Not necessary for good nutrition, but we both thought it would taste pretty good on a semi-rainy day.)  I need to be careful though, because if he gains too much kitchen expertise, he may no longer need me!

I am a retired fine arts teacher, sculptor/painter, writer, and a native Californian. I love my family,dogs, horses, movies, reading and music, probably in that order. I have been married forever to a very nice man who is nice to old ladies, dogs and children.


  1. This where sharing the load comes in. You see, I cook the meats and fish, Thérèse does the vegetables and I am the cooky for pastries under her direction when things are to hard to mix or carry. I make coffee and she brews tea. So we remain interdependant.
    However we have never been in such a situation when one is incapacitated temporarily so we never reaaly had to check wether one could make it without the other.
    Good luck with that part changing.


  2. I really think you can never be replaced. But how wonderful to have cooking classes, I cant imagine a better teacher. Just remember, I’m coming up to help, dr. Advice and you will have to experience some of my cooking!! Love you


  3. Kayti,
    Seems to me your birthday is in early April. Can you reveal the day? Will it be close to the day you receive your new shoulder from a total stranger?
    We all wish you well. You will certainly have lots of material for blogging.
