Monday Nite Summer

Yuri felt like he missed the Spring season. It was often raw and rainy fraught with strong winds, passing thunderstorms, sometimes a bit of hail (along with the Hail Marys), then a sudden thrust into heat and high humidity.

Fourth of July Gelato Dreams

New beginnings for Yuri's Independence Days. It started all last week with the access and support for his strength and mobility, followed by the swallowing therapist/speech pathologist giving the okay for smooth foods. Italian gelato.

Next Lunar Phase

We're in Phase Three of Yuri's Voyage Back From the Netherworld, a new Lunar Phase. The Half Moon peeked out through the spindly pine tree branches last evening.
