Here I am. Drip, drip, drip. Like human Folger's.

Marta Murvosh is here for the weekend and being a delightful primary caregiver. This is giving Lisa Costello a break from the constant hassle of my neediness. My profound thanks to them both.

Not much to report except a poor night's sleep, and me being slightly more mentally focused than usual for chemo this morning. About to spend a long, quiet day napping, watching tv, and doing a little light Web surfing. There may be a visitor or two.

In other news, I got my grandfather's grandfather clock fixed this week, thanks to Antique Clock Repair of Portland, so it now ticks away the minutes and chimes away the hours. This is a sound I recall from early in my childhood, and it pleases me to hear it today.

Y'all play nice.

You are never a hassle, and you are not unduly needy, and it is a joy to take care of you. I love you, remember?

Is your grandfather's clock, by any chance, too tall for the shelf?

I think I'm missing a cultural referent here.

It's freestanding, almost 2 meters tall.

The lyrics are here, although I have to admit I'd never gone past the first verse when I learned it.

And yes, this clock has stood 90 years on the floor, and is a bit taller than Granddaddy was. Though not by half.

It's really too bad the dripping you're experiencing has the opposite effect of coffee.

And yay for grandfather clocks!
