So, back to my "Back in the Saddle" theme. Yes folks, I really feel like I'm back in the saddle after my recent medical drama. Man oh man, I'm still going through it of course. I still have the stent and peeing is an interesting experience. Stop and start and burning but not intolerable like it was after my prostate surgery. Sure would be nice to have a regular pee again. Maybe after my procedure this Friday to "kidney stone bath" my two remaining stones.
These days I'm getting a good night's sleep. I have my appetite back but I would like to keep off that eleven pounds (all around my waist by the way) that I lost while getting rid of those two kidney stones. One interesting thing though, I've lost almost all my taste for sweets. I have a longtime habit of having a sweet (a dessert, get your mind out of the gutter...puh-leaze) before I go to bed. I just don't have that desire now. Interesting that. Good though, maybe I'll keep that extra inch off of my waist. I can deal with that.
I'm still way behind on my blog reading and my Find a Grave requests for changes. Those folks must think I passed. I really do have to clean out my e-mail.
This morning I was going through some old photos, looking for that original photo of me with a Sousaphone that a French filmmaker (yes, you read that right) has requested. Old Ron's blog gets around folks, you just never know who is reading it. Well anyway, I'm going through boxes of old photos and discovering extra prints that I had made but didn't distribute. So I contact my friend Renee on Facebook and asked her if I had sent them to her. The prints are only NINE YEARS old. My, my how time flies. I got to get out these prints and videos folks before I'm out of here.

But the good news is that I am back. I'M BACK! I have my strength back and interest if not my full appetite for sweets.
Yeah, I know. What do the pictures of me trimming grass have to do with this blog? Nothing. Just an excuse to post them. The autobiography thing again you know.
