Another year older ...

Just realized that Yikes passed another milestone recently -- celebrating four fun years blogging! Four years and 2150 posts later, and there is still much more to say.

Regular readers have noticed posting has been a bit light this year, due to a number of circumstances. But, I'm please to report that my sister and I are doing well! Jane -- who reads this so I'd better say lots of nice things -- has done quite well following her quadruple-bypass surgery. She's walking around the block these days, and has met more of our neighbors than I have!

The dogs love having Aunt Janie around. Bart has shed a few pounds from all the ball playing they do in the back yard, and Bella has that contented look that comes from lots of cuddling in the big chair during afternoon naps.

Sam the cat has settled in, and seems to have a slight crush on Bella. He's also getting along well with Bart ... well, until Bart gives him a big kiss ... which always sends him running out of the room!

As we settle into fall I hope to get back to more regular posting. The health care debate has taken on new meaning after the work it has taken to secure the care Jane has needed. We truly do need at LEAST a public option for any change to be considered "reform" -- and I feel even stronger that single-payer is really the best solution.

Thanks to everyone for stopping by!

Yikes! 4 already. Kewl. And it's wonderful to read about Jane's progress. I'm in my third year after bypass and paying basketball again with my son. I feel better than ever. Tell her that her best days are on the way!
