How I’m Spending My Spring Break . . .

JD & Oliver resting
. . . On my back with a bad back.
Fortunately, they have drugs for this condition & I’m much more mobile than I was a few days ago when this picture was taken; unfortunately, the drugs make me tired & muddle-headed, which means I haven’t gotten much work done & I had to cancel going to a retreat at ZMM. On Monday when classes resume I have permission to park in the blue spaces, which will save some wear & tear. Oh, and I’ll be the old guy walking with a stick—one of them anyway.
