TOP will be on vacation for a short while. It will reopen on March 29th.
—Yr. Hmbl. Ed. AKA the Left-Handed Typist
P.S. It's good news and bad news. My heart is fine...actually quite healthy for my age. The bad news is that nobody is quite sure why I'm still experiencing pain from the procedure I had. It ain't normal. I'm going in for an ultrasound on my arm on Monday.
"We don't know what's going on" is not what you want to hear from your medical professionals, although it's far from the worst thing you can hear from them. But the nurse in the recovery area did tell me not to type because it's one of the things that causes problems, and that's my clue that maybe I just overdid it too soon. In any event, it looks like I really do have to try to be good and stop typing for a week.
I'd try to type left-handed only, but I'd surely forget and just start typing normally...like I've done twice already in this post so far. :-\
I frequently joke that "my retirement plan is to keep working," and writing is about all I can do. It's possible to dictate—Ctein does that—as did John Milton!—but my process definitely involves typing.

So I can't mess up my hand.
I don't know about this...about going away like this. For me, not working is no vacation—a blogger is only ever as good as today's post, and the big worry is losing followers. But insecurities aside, I think I'd better do my best to take it easy for a while. Maybe I can just post pictures.
Ah, March of '18, benighted month!
Sorry about this, and I hope you will be patient while I'm a patient (sorry). See you next week(?).
