We always leave the last crop of Sunflowers for the wildlife so the stalks survive on into the Winter. Makes for a rather compelling sunrise I think.
I’ve been AWOL for most of this week as both my wife and I recover from some nasty health issues. She is recovering from a violent attack of migraineous vertigo complicated by spikes in blood pressure. I was slammed with sudden hearing loss in one ear apparently triggered by a bad infection in the middle ear. The specter of a stroke loomed large in her case but a battery of tests have ruled that out. I seem to have recovered some high frequency hearing in my affected ear thanks to a regimen of steroids but full recovery is doubtful. Frankly I’m surprised my left ear held out as long as it did: Too many Fender Bass Runs in my rock band days and 40 plus years of headphones in radio My other ear is normal. As Bob Dylan said, “If I had known I was going to be around this long, I would have taken better care of myself.” But, life is what it is. You have to accept it because there is no other choice. Thanks for the visit and have a great evening.
