Maybe, like Mark Twain, because I didn't have time to write an even shorter one?* Y'got me. Anyway, it's Wednesday, which means time for the regular meeting with Mom and her caregivers, which means I dash this off while bolting a slice of toast and a cup of coffee. Well, cinnamon toast, I'm not a total barbarian.
At last word, Mom was doing better and better, but she's still in the neck near-immobilizer and will be for some months to come. It's exactly as no fun as you might think, if not more so.
On the good news side, we seem to be building a potted-plant greenhouse on her windowsill. She's enjoying it.
* The Twain quote, "Sorry for the long letter, I didn't have time to write a short one," which alludes to the time taken by editing, was at the very least not original with him -- if he ever wrote it at all! Blaise Pascal appears to be the first person who used the line.
