Breakfast in Chippewa Falls With Mr. Moore and Good Friends

This past week I e mailed the wondrous Mr. Jay Moore. He at one time had invited me to join the coffee klatch that meets every saturday morning at the Chippewa Falls Family Restaurant, 1701 Kennedy Rd., at 8 AM, and I asked if I might join the group this morning and was cheerfully admitted.

So I put all the info in my GPS and put my trust in technology and by golly, it delivered me to the correct spot just out past St. Joe's Hospital. I one-crutched it in to the restaurant and spotted them way in the back and to the right. I 'spect that is the Jay table every saturday.

I had a really enjoyable time with the group and of course cannot remember everyone's name but i do remember Dick from Chippewa Falls as he is the survivor of a liver transplant and a recent visitor to "Iowa" (read: Las Vegas for the auto races).

The repartee was very enjoyable as we got to telling stories about true experiences, which I love. Come to find out, the group has traveling trophies -two little toy trucks - that when you get the entire group laughing, one is temporarily awarded to you.

As I was wearing my Bart Starr jersey, at one point the story telling turned to the Green Bay Packers of the 1960's and in particular, Mr. Ray Nitschke. Three of us had great Nitschke stories to tell.

Mr Moore, being a Carolina Panther fan, brought me up to speed with the Panthers latest - they dropped Jake Delhomme from the squad - not even a trade - he is currently shopping the market.

Two Tall had arrived a bit late but he was there for that conversation and he allowed that the Minnesota Vikings certainly would not want Delhomme as he is much too young. That got a good response and he should have gotten a truck.

It is an incredibly beautiful day today. Kimmy just left for the Cities to tend to sister Kristi's cats for the weekend as Kristi is traveling.

I am getting more adroit on my pins day by day. My left ankle is healing well I think, as I can now walk on the cast and it doesn't start to hurt until near the end of the day when i have completely tired it out.

I am still better off if I take time during the day to elevate both my feet so that they are above my head. My right good(bad) leg gets angry when used throughout the day and I suffer nightly from edema. But as I told the group this morning, I think I have timed my recovery well with the coming of Spring and it won't be long and I will be able to kick ass and take names.

I have received a lovely e mail from one of the greatest woman singers in my world, Perla Batalla. She had news of import:

Hey there Larry,
I am back home and so glad to be here! I adore Spain and it was amazing...every minute.
But I always miss my family terribly and 10 ten days is almost too much without them.
Glad you are on the mend. I don't mind hearing about what is going on with you at all.
I really think everyone got sick this winter! But I am still on the mend and feeling better every day. I consider myself so lucky to get the chance to travel to Spain, be in the birthplace of Picasso, be surrounded by a language I love, dine with some of the greatest intellects, poets and writers and to get to share my music with them! This concert was mostly original material! So what's a little pneumonia?
much love,

And I agree with her completely - Get out and enjoy the day! And if you are near a Borders or an actual music store, stop in and check out Perla's albums. You will be hooked immediately as I was. she is an absolute treasure.
