Why Did Two-Thirds of These Weird Antelope Suddenly Drop Dead?
The mass death of 200,000 saiga provides a dark omen for what might happen to wildlife in a changing world.

17:61 Just walked two laps of the hallway. Waiting, still, for my Tuesday shower.

20:38 Just back from my shower Excellent CNA assistant Michlee. Not sure of the spelling.
Feeling satisfied. About time for bed. Here's hoping I can get through another night without
being raped or injuried by my gay, psychotic roommate who I think has come to see me as his personal property.  I need to contact Detective Elizabeth Donohue of the Watertown Police
Dept about him.
On that note, unless something else comes to mind...

About 6:15pm, right after dinner I get my Tuesday shower. The CNA was a bit rough and hurried but efficient and thorough. At no time was I allowed control of the water. She asked me to stand after a total of 3-5 minutes. It was over. No cold water. No socks for my feet, just shoes. I put on a pair of socks in my room later.

Read the whole thing or end up going to hell.

My list of stuff to do tomorrow:

1) call LK about his mailing list

2) call DM about football

3) call KI about The Writing Program

4) put resume on fyi.txt

5) contact LR about AC fix.

That should keep me busy and feeling I've accomplished something.

Walked two laps of hallway with quadcane.

20:46 and time for lights out.

blueberry yogurt, blueberry muffin, plus blueberries  15:59 just put hardboiled egg out for birds, crumbled into small pieces. May have bumped Gary with right elbow. Earler today I went to the end of the hall where I think CYBTHIA HAS A HIDDEN ENTRANCE to a small apartment  that I think she shares with another woman I used  the toilrt for a BM. IT HAD AN ODD UNUSUAL CONFIGURATION. VERY DIFFERENT FROM WHAT I'M USED TO .I think it might have been Robin in the bed in the back right corner.Before I could investigate more some nurces found me in the room and shooed me out and back to my room, where Bob shows up and we go downstairs and
out to the patio for an hour of conversation.His son got an earring.Two days ago Cynthia and Robin went to see amovie aboutNobelPrizes with other keywords being fireman and a variation on my last name: Gardener. Then a day ago she has a conversation with  Michael about moving back to Cambridge.

Visit with Kimberly, doctor Assapore's assistant; about a new pain in my gut. As though I'd been punched hard in ny last left rib and not far from my bellybutton or maybe a hernia. Anyway, there are moments when it is very painful.

You can think of me as an internet curator. I read a lot of stuff and will compile regular lists of what I think is the most interesting to me and friends. Below is my first curated list.

Dinner is over. Successful BM about an hour+ ago. No shower yesterday. No wash or change today. I can smell myself.  Carlos tried to fix the AC unit today. New batteries didn't help. Cleaning the air filter also didn't help. Nor fiddling with the internal control panel. He thinks it is time to get a replacement.

Today was to be my last therapy session. Didn't happen.

Minimalist new writing tool. Publish something in the next 2 minutes!

I've reached the end of my latest therapy sessions. Wed is the last session.

"Skeptics Guide to the Universe" podcast suggested by a friend. Can't watch it because I cant disable Restricted Mode.
Can you help me do that?

Four laps of the hallway with my quadwalker and Matt from Physical therapy. Wednesday is my last session.

16:50 just finished 50 squats in the barhroom.Thinking of doing a bit of walking before dinner.

Someone gifted me two large boxes of blueberries and many packages of chocolate. Prime Suspect is currently Bill Kennedy.

16:58:Dinner is here.   17:58  Two more laps of the hallway outside my room.

20:26 two more laps of the hallway.Over and out for today!

Matt from Physical Therapy was here about 15 minutes ago for about 15 minutes of walking where he used his tfweapy belt that goes  around me and around him in case I fall. Then he is gone till

Monday. Just before he goes I sk if he's heard anything from Ben? He turns and leaves without saying a word.

16:14 Bill Kennedy calls me from outside MIT and offers to visit in about half an hour. More later.

polyamory and romance:

Dinner is finished. Time to do some walking.  16:16

16:26 back after two laps, feeling a bit unsteady, partly because of yesterddays workout.

Earlier today long chat with old friend Dan McCloskeywho I've known since my MIT days.

50 squats in the bathroom.

Some blogs I read regularly:


17:47 dinner is over, Joe will be turning the tv on every couple of minutes
even though he agreed to 6pm. I will turn of the Mozart.
I keep having this recurring fantasy that, unexpectedly Cheyenne runs
into my room shouting DADDY, DADDY you won the lottery.

TV is now on the news. Weather records  set.

The news is now sports so Joe turns it off,
I play some Mozaert

I'm thinking this weekend is another potential Saturday NightMassacre ala Nixon
and a chance to finally ubload Tronald Dump! or am I just reading too many liberal
blogs. I'm still for Bernie being the replacementHe's an older white guy who resembles
your brother/father/grandpa.

On the other hand, where I have four non-functioningfings and a slightly operational
thumb, I am a brother/father/grandfather and never a govner/senator/rep.
So what do I know?

Mozart still playing, tv still off.

18:41 Over and out

Santa was here earlier today.Yvonne brought presents

1) chocolate
2) season ticket to the Mass Megamillions lottery. Number: 01 08 10 23 40 42

Let me know if I (Richard Lee Gardner) win anything.

Leaving to do some walking in the hall.

16:01 Just back from 6 laps. 40 squats in the bathroom. No response from below deck.

Couple of hours of editing:

18:42going for some walking.

18:57 6 laps very shaky left leg.

Watched a Samantha Bee episode and a rhino being lifted by helicopter and moved in Southern Africa

Trump's support of the evangelicals who want Jerusalem to be the capitol of Israel to move the world to its end and the rapture is another scenario that keeps the generals awake and near pissing their pants.and North Korea is pissed at the UN.

NOTES FROM December 18, 2017

10:46am Did 4 laps of quadcane walking in the hall. Still feeling like I have a head full of cotton.

Matt from Rehab was here early this morning to test my ability to move from my WC to the toilet safely. Passed. Washed by Linda. This is my weekly Bob Slate visit dat. My new pants have the stretchy waistband so I will be able to use the toilet more efficiently. Still mo shorts with the stretchy waist. But a new pair of long pants keep showing up each day.Jean-Claude is back from being away for several days. I tell him about my dream that the DEA and fbi were investigating him for improperly medicating patients, incliding  me, making me feel as though I were in some sort of drug induced stupor

End of December 18 notes.
