  •  These are always a delight, all the more now... (5+ / 0-)

    when we need to return to ground from our states of emotions both high and low (schadenfreude and for us Easterners, Sandyfear)....doc's stories do it for me.

    •  I take no joy from the recent elections. (4+ / 0-)

      I DO take some satisfaction that cooler heads have prevailed.  Joy would mean that I take delight that someone lost, and to be honest I am sort of that way watching the idiot West try to justify his existence.  But that is a rare thing.

      I think that the People have spoken from a very deep place, and have said that it is time for our Nation to take a new, bold, and Progressive direction.

      I very much appreciate the very kind words that you said about my attempts at communication.  Should I compile these stories into a book that I might sell for income?

      Warmest regards,

        I have been reading your diaries with great pleasure for the last couple of years and have often thought you should combine them into a book.  They are always lively and come from a good heart.
