I am ashamed. Really and truly. I have been so overdue with my posts. I know I have been very busy, but, I have always been very busy, and used to always have time to sit and write something, SOMETHING on my blog. I wonder if it is because of Xanga. Damn it! Why did that site have to close? Any how, let me tell you what I have been doing.
Talking to three different companies regarding the publication of my book. not sure whom I am going to go with. Will let you know by and by.
Andrew my 8 year old prince has been playing a lot of golf. He took part in the Masters “kids event” for Drive, Chip and Putt! He came first in in the Putt section, outing a humongously long put, and over all came in second in the whole event, among 36 kids, in the 8 to 10 year age group. So proud of him.
Went to Chicago last week to get my knee checked. Hadn’t seen the surgeon in over three years. My bad! But was told everything looks great. From there went on to be with my friend Eunice. She is doing better I think. her weight is stable, is able to sit and talk for a longer time, and has started eating some food. She still gets very tired, sleeps a lot after the infusions, and gets winded when she talks too much. Unfortunately, there are multiple metastatic lesions in the lungs, and she has some fluid between the layers around the lungs. Hopefully the immunotherapy infusions will help. Over all, I found her appearance more satisfactory. So I may not go back up again till the end of the year may be.
My son in law Dave has been doing good too. Stable, with good lab and scan results. So grateful to God for His mercy.
The garden grows. Lots of eggplants, tomatoes and okra. Bunches of roses. The Japanese beetles are causing a havoc though. Have had the garden sprayed , and I feel I am much better than some of the other people who are almost crying because these varmints have taken over their yards.
Wad going through some old photographs, and came across these. I posted them on my facebook page as “throw back Thursday topic”. These were taken in 1989. I had gone to New York to play tennis with some celebrities. It was a function set up by different hospitals in the country. Alex Trebec was the man telling us the various rules etc. I played with many people, and here you can see me with Linda Lavin (Alice, from the soap Mel’s Diner), Franco Harris of the Pittsburgh Steelers, Alec Ballwin, (No words can describe how handsome this bloke was when he walked on the court and shook my hand, saying “hi, I have the privilege of being your doubles partner!”) I didn’t know who he was, and I asked him, and sheepishly he said, “I am an actor!” Oh well, so much for my general knowledge! But now when you see him you can see how he has fatted up!! I have done that too. There was a very elegant and gala affair with a dinner at the end of the three days. I cannot believe how thin I was then. Pfffttt!
Throwback Thursday. (from my face book page)
In 1989, I had gone to New York to play in the Celebrity Tennis program. It was sponsored by a local hospital, and was attended by numerous people of different hospitals. Alex Trebec was in charge, and he was the man telling us the various rules. It was such a grand event. Here are some pictures.
It is fun to look at old photoes and see how much I have changed!! Linda Lavin acted as Alice on Mel’s Diner in the sit com, and playing with Alec Balwin was too cool. Franco Harris of the Pittsburgh Steelers was a super gentleman on court and off court. The three day event ended with a gala dinner.
So that’s it for now. Will try really hard to keep in touch. Please don’t give up on me. Love you all.
