Yes, I know. It’s been a while. I’ve been busy getting sliced and diced again. Went through the surgery for my other hand, my right hand, and it’s been a lot more difficult. I’m right-handed, which has complicated everything. It really is true that you don’t know what you’ve got till it’s gone. But the cast comes off a week from Monday, so I’m getting there.
I’m actually writing this post with some voice software. Dragon Naturally Speaking. It was a gift to me, and I like it, but it takes getting used to. You have to think very differently than when you’re writing by hand. That is, typing by hand. With the voice recognition stuff, you have to think in chunks, rather than as you type. But, in the long run, it could be a lot faster way of working.
But I’m doing okay. I’ve gotten to do a few things that needed to be done like straightening out some of my books and a lot of the files on my computer. I’ve been catching up on some reading that I needed to get done. But trying to type or get any of this type of thing accomplished has been a bit overwhelming. I’m trying to get back at it.
Tuesday night I had the honor of being a roadie for my buddy’s band. I have some knowledge of drums and guitar, so I can actually be some real help, and I wanted to do it. The band is called Strawberry Alternative. They’re very good. The only problem was, I can only do most things with my left hand, which made for an interesting evening, but it was fun. They played at the historic Gem Theater in downtown Detroit. So I was able to be backstage, to see what’s back there. I got to check out the dressing rooms and such. It was like a small version of the Fox Theater in Detroit. My brother in law gave me a tour of the Fox a few years ago, and I always find that kind of thing interesting. It’s kind of cool to get to go where people don’t normally get to go.
Anyhow. That’s all for now. It’s hard to write this way. I’ll start things back up probably within about a week on a more regular basis. Thanks for your prayers faithful readers.
Peace to you.
