A bit of a challenge

I have been beating my head against the '100 Word Challenge' for this week. The word is "Rotten". It really is rotten, too. I cannot, for the life of me, make it work in my head.

I have ideas. The last two things I did ran out to 120 words or more - and there wasn't anywhere I could cut words without destroying the sense of what I was writing.

I guess I haven't let this one stew enough, yet.

I do that, you know? I take the 'Word" and I stick it in my mental craw and a couple of days later it comes pouring out. I guess this one needs to cook a bit more. Maybe it will wind up being a 100 Word Friday Haiku - nah. I've done that already.

Anyway.

Grannie seems to be making some progress. Maybe, just maybe, she'll be able to get that feeding tube out and things can get just a bit closer to normal. I hope. For her sake more than mine. And for Annie's sake, as well.

Yesterday was my 65th Birthday. It threatened NOT to be any kind of 'special' - that is, until all the FaceBook messages started showing up in my gmail inbox. They kept coming and coming.

I said, in my FaceBook status, that "You have no idea how blessed I feel". And it's true. You have no idea how blessed I feel.

It's a very rare and special feeling to have so many people care enough to take the time to send a birthday wish.

Thank you, all.

The happiest of b'days to you, Lou. You're reaching this big goal 4 mos before me, so enjoy. May you dream big and may your dreams come true.

I'm glad you had a grand birthday, Lou. Maybe that's why you can't wrap your head around "rotten". You just aren't feeling it.
