I heard about this late, but would like to be better late than never. Head on over to Always Home and Uncool and read his post on juvenile dermatomyositis. I love when the blog world comes together and puts its energy into doing good deeds and bringing awareness. I know and appreciate so much how all of your prayers and good thoughts have helped my family through this last month. It’s an amazing source of support.

I was thinking the other day how centuries ago artists and writers had patrons. Now we put ads up. So far, my ads have provided no source of revenue… I’m thinking of looking for a patron… With a seven and a half percent pay cut the next two years I know I will need to get a second job.

The other day I was walking BC around the neighborhood at sunset. At the “view park” there was an old man looking towards the sunset. As I got closer I could not help but notice he had a very large umbrella, unopened, handle side driven into the ground and pointed end sticking right into the center of his jeans. He was leaning on it. His ass was like a target and the pointed end of the umbrella looked like a colonoscopy about to drive right through his jeans and into the great beyond. I really wanted to ask him what in the world would make him do that to himself, but couldn’t figure a way to start the conversation. I mean, he was old. What was I supposed to say, “Hey buddy, there’s an umbrella coming up your ass any second now?”
