If there is a bright side…

Hello friends,

Recently it has been harder to find the words.

My next scan and oncology appointment loom. It’s nerve-wracking.

And I have been feeling, literally feeling, so much about the Inauguration. My jaw aches from clenching my teeth. My neck hurts to move, and my head feels like it weighs too much to lift sometimes.

The pictures made matters worse:

Maybe it was thoughts of modern manscaping and wondering what ol’ Andy would think of that trend if he were alive today.

The sale ends on June 22 so as a parting gift, I’m giving you some NSFW screen shots below just in case you don’t check out the sale in time.

Last warning:ย wieners involved.
