Temporary Suspension

Tomorrow morning I go in for elective surgery so the blog will be quiet for awhile.

I am only going to be in the hospital for a few days but then I check into one of those Physical Therapy sanatoria where they contort and exhort in a medically approved regime of torture. I've never been, so I don't really know. I suppose. I have my impressions though:
These places are run by bouncy, fit bullies who admonish if you whimper and applaud only when you sweat and tremble with painful physical effort.
I'm going for the physical effort but I intend to be peevish about it. Peevishness is not the ideal mindset for blogging. Besides I won't have a computer.

My plan is to resume writing on August 4, but secretly I'm hoping to come back a little before that target date.
