In Between “Real” Posts

IMG_0436Here’s a nice sunset picture I took when I was on Marrowstone Island in Washington last summer.
I’m not able to spend time on my next post just yet because Old Jules, from the So Far From Heaven blog (, is in a hospital here being treated for GBS (Guillain-Barre Syndrome) and I’m spending a lot of time going there after work as well as making sure his apartment is in order (40 minutes the other direction). So this week I’ve learned far more about this auto-immune condition than I ever wanted to know. For those of you who were following his blog and “know” him, he’s incrementally better from the first treatment (plasma exchange) but they expect it to be some time before he’s strong enough to go back to his own apartment. I have his latest cat, Miss Say What? (she’s deaf) staying with me and she’s okay with the change so far. My plate is full.
I do have some rather nice art work to show you from a mail-art pen pal of mine for the next time I post, so I hope it won’t be long.

  1. Jeanne, Thanks for the update on Old Jules. Glad to hear he is on the mend however long it may take. Do tell him his fan club miss his words of wisdom. And all strength to you in this trying time. Alan

    • Thank you, Alan. He seems to be responding well to the treatments. I’ve been hoping he would go back to blogging, he has so many stories to tell, but so far I haven’t convinced him, or he’s just not ready! Keeping fingers crossed!

  2. Hi Jeanne, thanks very much for the update. Best wishes to you both.
