March Winds

Recent Posts


March has been windy here on Maryland’s Eastern Shore. None too warm either. Crazy weather across the country. We saw snow Flerries once so far this year. All those trucks with plows, just rusting away.

My goodness, LAZY could be my name. February flew by, well 28 days of it anyway. No Blog from the Rooster. I really thought I was on Wall Street. My ticker was working overtime, thanks to a new pacemaker, #3. I’ve had two during the past twenty years, the batteries get old and they, (electrophysiologists) put a new one in using the original leads. This time I got a third lead to my Left ventricle which was not beating according to Hoyle. What is an Electrophysiologist you ask? An electrophysiologist — also referred to as a cardiac electrophysiologist, arrhythmia specialist, or EP — is a doctor with a specialization in atypical heart rhythms and the electricity of the heart.

So the new lead was causing Diaphragmatic Stimulation and I got to make three trips to the ER over a three-week period. As of this writing, all is well. Enough already on that. Plenty of info out there if you’re at all interested. Really though, quite boring.

As some of you know I’ve been journaling daily for about ten years. I’ve been blogging since 08, here and on Blogspot. Granddaughter Jill, a senior at Siena University recently had a news piece printed about the subject. With her permission, read the below.

Just to give you the KID COUNT, we’ve had three of our own, nine grands, and six greats. I guess you could say we’ve been blessed over the past 58 years.

The following are a few picks from the past couple of months.

Top left we have a Northern Magnolia. In the center is an Eastern Shore sunset. to the right is a flowering Apple tree.

The bottom center is a “Did You Ever Wonder”. How in the name of John James Audubon, do Sea Gulls know the farmers are tilling the fields?

Don’t forget to Spring forward.

If you’re confused by all this, the official time right now for all states and territories of the United States is available from the National Institute of Standards and Technology.

  1. Heart problems can be tricky. I hope yours is on an even keel now.

    I wish I could have read Jill’s post. The screen couldn’t be enlarged, and the print was too tiny for my eyes.

    It’s good to hear that your health issues have settled down. We’re in line for some of those March winds in the coming week, and of course there will be a few days of adjusting to the time change. I have no trouble with the fall change, but the ‘springing forward’ seems to disrupt my internal rhythms a bit. In three of four days, I’ll be back in the groove.

    It’s been a while since I’ve seen a blooming apple tree. I especially enjoyed that photo.

    Glad to see you writing again. You were missed. Great article and beautiful pics!

    • You are most kind my friend. We have several of the lamps you were using. We use them a lot for dinner ambiance.

        Diane brought one of those. I think we might have to get it. Very useful. I love our solar camping lantern (not shown there). These things come in very handy in these situations. Love the idea of dinner ambiance! Will have to try. 🙂
