nothing quite like raining sideways...

we got 1.2 inches of rain last night. it felt much worse than that because of the wind. there was times where i felt like something was surely going to blow off the house when the wind was really howling. those are the nights where i don't miss living on the farm.

Manchester United won yesterday over Newcastle, 4-1. Pogba is back. Zlatan is back. and imagine that, so are the goals. they next play on Wednesday in the Champions League.

Ohio State whipped Illinois yesterday, 52-14. honestly, it never felt that close. the win gives them the East division and a game against Wisconsin for the Big 10 championship. but first is the game next week at that school up north.

NXT Takeover: War Games was amazing last night. the War Games match itself was nuts. the women's title match was so damn good. i was a little surprised that the title changed hands on the men's side, but given Drew's injury, it makes sense. the match between Velveteen Dream and Aleister Black was holy shit great. all in all, a really good show and once again it put the main roster behind the 8 ball tonight for Survivor Series.

Night of Too Many Stars was a bit of a clusterfuck last night. at times it was really funny and at times it simply did not work at all. plus, the show ran long, so i think i missed the last 20 minutes or so.

ROH was supposed to record last night but for some fucking reason i ended up recording a damn infomercial. so, i have it set to record later today and maybe i'll get around to watching it tonight or Monday.

Austin City Limits last night was highlights from the 2017 Americana Music Awards.

Saturday Night Live was great last night. i wasn't sure what to expect with Chance the Rapper hosting but he was excellent. probably one of the better shows of the season so far.

enjoy some music:

and now some of this and that:

on the DVR tonight will be Curb Your Enthusiasm, Shameless and SMILF. i'll be watching WWE Survivor Series for most of the evening.

the New Orleans Saints play at home today against Washington. hopefully the Saints can keep the winning streak going.

the Dayton Flyers play in the 5th place game today down in Charleston against Old Dominion. i'd really like to see Dayton win and come back home with a winning record in the tournament.

the New York Rangers play tonight at home against Ottawa. i doubt i will watch anything more than the highlights from this one.

i hope everyone had a great Saturday. hope your Sunday will be even better.

he's off having a beer with Bon now...

when i saw the news this morning that Malcolm Young had died, i was a bit sad. dementia is what my father died with. and 64 is way too young to go anymore. but, when i think about the music that Malcolm helped create in AC/DC, i can't help but think how that helped spark my creative fire, fueled the dreams of becoming a musician and got me through my youth. rest in peace Malcolm, tell Bon hello. thank you for the music.

Dayton rebounded nicely from its first loss of the season to beat Ohio University last night, 79-65. they got a much better whistle in this game and it showed. Josh Cunningham had 18 points and 19 rebounds last night. Darrell Davis, the only senior on the team, scored a career high 25 points in the victory. of course, since it's Dayton, there was an injury in the game. Trey Landers sprained his ankle and only played 4 minutes. he was on crutches and in a walking boot after the game. i'm hoping that's just precautionary shit. Jordan Davis played 30 minutes because of the injury. he had 10 points in his 3rd game in college. that certainly made his family and friends in attendance happy, that's for sure. Dayton will play in the 5th place game on Sunday against Old Dominion.

the New York Rangers lost to Columbus 2-0 last night. i didn't watch much of the game. i usually don't when the two teams play because i have to watch the Columbus broadcast (stupid broadcasting rules). the announcers for Columbus fucking suck. the Rangers will play at home on Sunday against Ottawa.

congrats to Trotwood for beating CJ last night 44-14. that makes it 8 straight years that Trotwood has made it to the state final 4 in football. when i went there, the football team was lucky to win 5 games at best. now, if they aren't playing around Thanksgiving, the season is a disappointment. 2 more wins until another state title.

Vice News Tonight had another great week of shows.

NJPW was excellent last night.

the season finale of Real Time with Bill Maher was fucking hilarious last night. the show returns in January.

enjoy some music:

and now some of this and that:

on the DVR tonight will be Saturday Night Live, ROH, Austin City Limits and Night of Too Many Stars. i'll be watching NXT Takeover: War Games on WWE Network for most of the evening.

Manchester United plays today at home against Newcastle. i'm really hoping the boys can get a victory.

Ohio State plays today at home against Illinois. it's Senior Day, or how i like to call it, you weren't good enough to leave early day. hopefully they won't be looking ahead towards the game next week with that team up north.

i just put all my spices in the chili i've made for today. i'll probably do some cornbread later this evening. that should be a good dinner for what might be a nasty night of weather.

we're supposed to get 60 mph winds today and then maybe some fucking snow before the winds move out of the region. just fucking lovely.

i'll probably be on here tomorrow before the New Orleans Saints play in the afternoon.

i hope everyone has a great Saturday. call if you need bail money.

you would think a holiday is coming up or something...

i went to the grocery store this afternoon. it was fucking packed. i stepped (somehow) wrong while in the parking lot, so my right foot was killing me the entire time. that was real fun as i was battling old ladies trying to get to the shit my mom had on the list. thankfully, i found everything that was on the list. between that and the prescriptions, i managed to keep it under $150.

as soon as i saw who one of the referees were last night in the Dayton vs. Hofstra game, i knew Dayton was fucked. Teddy Valentine is the worst kind of referee for any sport. they believe that the game is about them. every fucking shitty call, except 2 times that Teddy had to make up for his own mistakes, went against Dayton. and it was the classic referee teaching freshmen a lesson type calls. with all that being said, Dayton also played like shit for most of the game as well. amazingly, they had a small lead with 2 minutes left in the game. i'm not sure why Coach Grant had 2 of the starters on the bench at this point. i'm sure he's still learning the team. i give the freshman that was forced into taking a forced last second three credit for not looking to pass. the three just rimmed out. that's life. Dayton lost 72-69. so now they get to play Ohio University for the first time in over 50 years. joy. their third game on Sunday will be against a lesser opponent as well (thinking Big 5 conferences), so the schedule has now gone to shit. i know this is going to be a long season. and my hatred for losing is going to be fucking tested. i can feel that already.

the season finale of Better Things was great last night.

the finale of Fuck, That's Delicious Classics was hilarious last night.

The Chris Gethard Show was fucking great last night.

Gotham was fucking awesome last night. i can't wait for it to come back in 2 weeks.

The Big Bang Theory was very funny last night.

Young Sheldon was funny as well last night.

Life in Pieces was hilarious last night.

enjoy some music:

and now some of this and that:

on the DVR tonight will be Vice News Tonight, NJPW and Real Time with Bill Maher.

so at the same time that Dayton is playing Ohio, the New York Rangers will be playing in Columbus. i figure if Dayton starts to piss me off too much, i'll flip over to the hockey game. i would love to see both of them win tonight, as i could use some alcohol.

i sent off some money today for my Christmas gift to myself, Ally Malinenko's new book FITTING THE OCEAN IN YOUR MOUTH. to find out how you can get a copy, go here:
https://allymalinenko.com/2017/11/16/book-news/

i guess we're supposed to have some end of the world type winds come through here tonight. they are supposed to hit after midnight, so i guess i won't be sleeping. like that's something new.

i'll be on here in the morning tomorrow, sometime before Manchester United plays.

i hope everyone has a great weekend. take it easy and then take it again.

why i hate shopping

i don't see how people get any fucking joy walking around a store for 2 hours looking for shit to buy. now, i remember as a child being excited because i knew there would be toys there. it was also as a child that i first gained the courage to shoplift. that's one way to get around your parents constantly saying no. we did find a few things for Christmas gifts and a few things we needed for the house. as for myself, i found something for my sister and got hangers for myself. i'm trying to be as patient as i possibly can with my mother when i'm out in public. but, when the arthritis is barking and your blood sugar is dropping, talk about wanting to fucking snap... apparently the guy in front of us in line noticed. he got his shit on the belt rather quickly. hopefully, we won't have to go back to Meijer until next year.

the season finale of You're the Worst was great last night. i really hope this show has at least one more season in it.

i enjoyed most of The Voice last night but Miley truly screwed the pooch by not taking Mariah to the live shows. at least the other two were ones i like.

Total Divas was pretty good last night. i hope The Miz understands that Maryse is real life karma for him.

NXT was really good last night. i can't wait for this Saturday and Takeover: War Games.

the New York Rangers lost last night in Chicago 6-3. the boys started off well but once The King let in a soft one, the roof caved in. they play again tomorrow night in Columbus.

enjoy some music:

and now some of this and that:

on the DVR tonight will be Vice News Tonight, The Chris Gethard Show, the season finale of Better Things, Gotham, The Big Bang Theory, Young Sheldon, Life in Pieces and Fuck, That's Delicious Classics.

the Dayton Flyers play Hofstra tonight down in Charleston, South Carolina. if Dayton wins, they will play the winner of Clemson vs. Ohio University tomorrow.

i did listen to the latest Sam Roberts Wrestling Podcast this morning. you can find that by going here:

i will probably be on here tomorrow after i do the grocery shopping.

washing my bedding might have got me a whole 15 minutes more of sleep last night. in my insomnia though, i did write 3 more poems. i typed those up this morning and they are really good. they will be included in my next round of submissions, hopefully by later this month.

that's all for me kids. i believe my lunch at Waffle House has me going for a bathroom here soon.

it's raining, so it's laundry day...

i have my last load of laundry in the dryer. i actually decided to wash my sheets today. i think maybe some clean bedding will allow me to sleep for more than 45 minutes straight. at least that's the fucking hope.

i really want to thank everyone who took the time to listen to my interview with Marcia Epstein. i really do appreciate it. and thank you for all the feedback. feel free to share the interview with anyone and everyone.

the season finale of American Horror Story was excellent last night. just the right amount of blood and shock.

The Jim Jefferies Show was fucking fantastic last night.

i only really liked two performances on The Voice last night. thankfully, Adam took those 2 to the live shows.

Smackdown was great last night. the invasion from Raw was damn near perfect. Survivor Series on Sunday should be amazing.

205 Live was pretty good as well last night.

my interview with Marcia Epstein

here is the link to my interview with Marcia Epstein. enjoy.
http://lawrencehits.com/wp/blog/podcast/j-j-campbell-poet/

a productive day

mom agreed to go out shopping this morning, well, late morning/early afternoon. we went to Menards and i think we did pretty good. we got everything and kept it under $100. mom was a little surprised as she rarely spends less than $100 while there.

we got home in time to eat lunch and get the trash done before the USA played Portugal. the USA played a bunch of players that weren't involved in the debacle of not qualifying for the World Cup. sure enough, they were one horrific goalkeeper blunder away from beating Portugal in Portugal. but, a 1-1 draw with a youngster getting his first goal in his first cap is a better way to finish this year than the alternative. all i want from whomever gets the job to coach the team is the commitment to playing the kids. play them all the time and get them ready for the next World Cup cycle. congrats to Weston McKinnie for a lovely goal.

The Voice was pretty good last night. both team Jennifer and team Blake got cut down to the 3 members each that will be going to the live performances. i think both coaches picked the right people.

Monday Night Raw was a bit crazy last night. i guess they certainly want this Survivor Series to be one for the record books. HHH is going to be the final member of team RAW. plus, The Shield will be taking on The New Day now. i guess i know what i will be watching on Sunday. tonight should be interesting on Smackdown to say the least.

enjoy some music:

and now some of this and that:

on the DVR tonight will be Vice News Tonight, Smackdown, The Jim Jefferies Show, The Voice, Drop the Mic and the season finale of American Horror Story. i'll watch 205 Live sometime tonight on WWE Network.

for the first time in my lifetime

i just watched Italy draw with Sweden, which means Italy will miss the World Cup for the first time since 1958. i think i am in total fucking shock at the moment.

my interview with Marcia Epstein went really well today. she seemed happy with it and i was happy with the poems i got to read, many of them i haven't read before for any recording. the hour we talked really flew by. when that interview comes out, i'll be sure to pass along any and all of the links.
http://lawrencehits.com/wp/blog/series/talk-with-me/

Curb Your Enthusiasm was fucking hilarious last night.

the series finale of Vice Principals was great.

the season finale of Last Week Tonight was brilliant last night.

Shameless was excellent last night.

SMILF was a little dirty and very, very good last night.

enjoy music:

and now some of this and that:

on the DVR tonight will be Vice News Tonight and The Voice. i'll be watching Monday Night Raw for most of the evening.

the New Orleans Saints are for real. they whipped Buffalo yesterday in Buffalo, 47-10. the Saints set a team record with 6 rushing touchdowns. they have all the elements of a team that can win in the playoffs; a good defense, a good running game and an elite quarterback. that was their 7th straight win. the last team to lose their first two games and win their next 7 were the 1993 Cowboys, who won the Super Bowl that year. i'm going to try to keep it calm and just go game by game, but i haven't been this excited for the Saints since 2009.

i think mom wants to go out shopping tomorrow. i'm going to try to convince her to do it early so i can be back home to watch the USA men's national team take on Portugal in a friendly tomorrow afternoon. i will probably be on here after that tomorrow.

i hope everyone had a great weekend.

41 in my mind, with the body of some old man willing to die

i think i was in my massage chair for most of yesterday. i tried ice, i tried heat, i tried sleeping, none of it to much success. that's the joy of a bad back. sometimes it has a mind of its own. so, now i'm walking like i am in my 70's. joy.

the New York Rangers won their 6th straight game yesterday, defeating Edmonton 4-2. for the first time since the 90's it feels like the Rangers actually have a power play that works. i guess getting Kevin Shattenkirk was worth it. the Rangers are off until Wednesday when they will play at Chicago.

Ohio State rebounded nicely from their horrible loss last week to absolutely destroy Michigan St., 48-3 yesterday. honestly, the game never felt even that close.

the LEGO Batman Movie was really good last night.

Foo Fighters - Landmarks Live in Concert was awesome last night. to see them play in Greece at the Acropolis was truly a sight to see.

ROH was excellent last night.

Austin City Limits was very good last night.

Saturday Night Live was great last night. i wasn't sure how they would use Tiffany Haddish, so i was pleasantly surprised they actually allowed her to be great last night.

enjoy some music:

and now some of this and that:

on the DVR tonight will be Last Week Tonight, Curb Your Enthusiasm, Shameless, SMILF and the series finale of Vice Principals.

the New Orleans Saints play today at Buffalo. if the Saints win today on the road, i'll know they are for real this season. Buffalo is one of the better home teams in the league.

i have all the poems printed out that i want to read during my interview tomorrow morning. i'm really hoping i get a good night of sleep before that happens in the morning tomorrow. it will be the biggest one of these things i have done, so i know i'll probably already be in my own head at some point.
http://lawrencehits.com/wp/blog/series/talk-with-me/

i'll probably be on here tomorrow sometime after that is recorded. i know mom wants to go out shopping at some point this week. since we are going up to my sister's for Christmas, apparently we are now roped in to doing stockings for her friends children. that had me scrambling last night, figuring out how to use my rewards points on my Capital One credit card. thankfully, i hadn't touched them before, so i was able to get a really nice gift card to Amazon.com that should cover everything.

now, do i get them something reasonable or something loud as fuck? decisions, decisions...

i hope everyone had a great Saturday. hopefully your Sunday will be even better.

euphoria meets a bad back

first off, Happy Veteran's Day to all of you who served this country. maybe one day this country will show you the respect you deserve. don't hold your breath though.

my back was killing me last night at the game. i couldn't get it loose for anything. so, imagine a miserable guy sitting next to a guy in his 50's acting like a jackass and saying whatever the fuck he wants because he believes the first amendment doesn't have any consequences. at one point during the game, i leaned over to my mother and said, this is how it's going to go this season. the first time he spills a beer on me, i'll let him know that's the one time he gets. the next will get him killed. she laughed. he apologized to all of us later in the second half, saying he just gets so passionate about basketball. Trump's America, now every jackass feels welcome in public. great.

as for the game, when Dayton held Ball State scoreless for the first 6:15 of the game, i was mildly surprised. Dayton of course took their foot off the gas, and most of that 14-0 advantage was gone by halftime. the second half was a game of runs. when it got down to the nitty gritty, Dayton was down by 1 with 1.9 seconds to play. Anthony Grant had them run a play that i have seen used my most elementary school teams in the past. lob it up to the big guy and let him shoot. holy shit, it worked. Josh Cunningham scored the winning shot at the buzzer and Dayton defeated Ball State 78-77. the last time Dayton won their opener at the buzzer, they went to the Elite 8. i wouldn't mind seeing that again. to win a game like that while missing a player (Matej Svoboda, migraines) and against a team that is good enough to win their conference this season; especially given how young Dayton is, they should feel ready for a great season. they next will play Hofstra in the Charleston Classic.

Vice News Tonight had another great week of shows.

NJPW was excellent last night.

the season finale of Mike Judge Presents: Tales from the Tour Bus was excellent last night. i really hope this has many more seasons to come.

Real Time with Bill Maher was fucking hilarious last night.

enjoy some music:

and now some of this and that:

on the DVR tonight will be Saturday Night Live, ROH, Austin City Limits, The LEGO Batman Movie and Foo Fighters - Landmarks Live in Concert.

Ohio State plays here in a few minutes against Michigan State. if Ohio State wants any chance to play for any kind of title this season, today is a MUST win.

the New York Rangers play at home today against Edmonton. i'd love to see the Rangers keep their winning streak going.

congrats to my old high school, Trotwood, for their victory over Dunbar last night, 64-26. they next will play CJ for the regional title. the dream for another state title in football is still alive.

my sister might show up here later today. thankfully, the t-shirt i got her for Christmas showed up yesterday.

that's all for me kids. i'm off to go watch some sports while icing down a bad back on a body riddled with arthritis. did i mention it was like 20 degrees when i went out to get the paper this morning? talk about some slow fucking steps in the cold.

i hope everyone has a great Saturday. call if you need bail money.

the start of the college basketball season...

i am really looking forward to the game tonight between Dayton and Ball State. i believe the game is a sell out, so it should be an amazing atmosphere. Ball State is a pretty veteran team, so it wouldn't shock me, given Dayton's youth, that Ball State leads for a good portion of the game. i'm hoping that Dayton can pull out a victory, but it will take some healthy contributions from the kids for that to happen.

The Chris Gethard Show was very good last night. the subject of the show was something i have dealt with my entire life, failure. as someone who was never allowed to fail as a child, it's been one of the hardest things to deal with as an adult. imagine dealing with that and being a poet as well. good times.

Fuck, That's Delicious Classics was excellent last night.

Better Things was very good last night.

Gotham was great last night.

The Big Bang Theory was very funny last night.

Young Sheldon was very good last night.

Life in Pieces was hilarious last night.

it was 22 degrees when i went out to get the paper this morning. that was a nice shock to the system as all i had on was a t-shirt, shorts and some slippers. thank god i turned up the furnace last night. i actually got some decent sleep. of course, when i woke up this morning, the bags under my eyes looked like i had maybe two hours of sleep or less. good times.

i'm going to try to be on here tomorrow before Ohio State plays Michigan State.

this cold weather does quite a number on my back. i'll be in my massage chair for the next hour or so.

i hope everyone has a great weekend. take it easy and then take it again.

you ever dream about a flying pig armed with a machine gun?

i gave up trying to understand my dreams years ago. i learned that if you do a better job of remembering them, the poems will become easier and easier. so there, i have given a secret away.

the New York Rangers won again last night, defeating Boston 4-2. that's 5 wins in a row for them. they play again at home on Saturday afternoon against Edmonton.

You're the Worst was really good last night. the two part season finale is next week.

Total Divas was pretty good last night.

NXT was pretty good as well last night. i can't wait for Takeover: War Games. it should be amazing.

mom ordered what i thought i was going to have to take her shopping for over the internet yesterday. so, now i just have the grocery shopping today to do. i'm waiting for them to call and say they have my prescriptions ready before i go. i don't like making more than one trip somewhere if i don't have to.

i'll probably be on here early tomorrow. mom has a doctor's appointment in the afternoon and then the Dayton Flyers play Ball State tomorrow night. if her appointment runs long, we might end up having to go right from the doctor's office to the game. i really hope that isn't the case.

have a good one kids.

finally dry enough to be in the yard

it was finally dry enough today that i could get out in the yard and fill the bird feeders. we had so much rain that in some of them, the seeds had started to sprout. that's always fun to clean.

i wrote 6 poems yesterday while in the waiting room while mom was getting her MRI done. i typed them up yesterday and i think a couple of them are really good.

The Voice was pretty good last night. the playoffs are up next.

Drop the Mic was pretty funny last night.

American Horror Story was really good last night. the season finale is next week.

The Jim Jefferies Show was hilarious last night.

Smackdown was very good last night. i figured they would have AJ Styles win the championship last night. that sets up him vs. Brock Lesnar at Survivor Series. DREAM MATCH.

205 Live was pretty good as well last night.

30 for 30: Nature Boy was a stroll down memory lane for me. i have followed the career of Ric Flair since i was 3 years old. the hardest part was the last 20 minutes or so. watching the footage of his son that died from an overdose and why his daughter is wrestling today brought tears. i figure for the casual fan, it was probably more eye opening than it was for me. i did like that Hulk Hogan admitted that Ric is way better than he was.

the second part of Rolling Stone: Stories From the Edge wasn't as good as the first part, but, i was also alive for all of this part of the documentary. i did like that they included the warts as well in the movie. it wasn't just a kiss Jann Wenner's ass for the entire 4 hours.

enjoy some music:

and now some of this and that:

on the DVR tonight will be Vice News Tonight, You're the Worst and Total Divas. i'll watch NXT sometime tonight on WWE Network.

the New York Rangers play tonight at home against Boston. i'd love to see them extend the winning streak to 5 tonight.

that's all for me today kids. i have no clue when i'll be on here tomorrow. mom wants to get a Thanksgiving tablecloth for some damn reason, so i get the feeling that i'm going to be taking her shopping tomorrow.

el invierno viene pronto mis amigos

be well. be creative. be cool. be quick to send me CASH, panties, hate mail, love letters, broken promises and dirty pennies from heaven.

peace and chicken grease...

3 hours of sleep in a row, wow...

i have my television set up to turn off if the channel hasn't changed in 4 hours. i know if i wake up and it's still on, i didn't get enough sleep at all. that happened this morning. thankfully, i was able to go back to sleep. when i next saw the clock, it was over 3 hours later. hot damn. this will be as close as i get to refreshed for days.

the New York Rangers came from behind last night to defeat Columbus, 5-3. that's 4 wins in a row. amazingly, they have pretty much dug themselves out of the hole they started the season in. they play tomorrow at home against Boston.

Vice News Tonight last night was all about the Paradise Papers. i urge everyone to find this show on demand and watch it.

The Voice was pretty good last night.

Monday Night Raw was pretty good last night. i was a little surprised at Sheamus & Cesaro winning the tag team championship. but, if that produces The Shield vs. The New Day at Survivor Series, i'm cool with it.

Rolling Stone: Stories From the Edge was very good last night. the music was great and i learned a few things from the stories. hopefully tonight's episode will be just as good.

enjoy some music:

i have to take mom to get some blood work done and a brain MRI today. after she's done with that, i have to take her to go vote. she forgot to send in her absentee ballot. and then after all that, i have to get back here and get the trash done and do something for dinner. thank god i did the dishes last night.

i'm going to bring along pen and paper with me today, just in case a few poems pop in my head.

i have no clue when i'll be on here tomorrow.

this is why you move to higher ground

we had 4.6 inches of rain last night. thankfully, where our house is, it doesn't really flood much. i went out to check since a sewer drain is right across from our driveway and if it starts backing up, i know where it's going. and i really had no motivation to get in the car and go check all the spots around town where i knew there would be flooding. thankfully, i was drinking last night, so i didn't have as much pain as i should have.

before i get to yesterday's shit, a few poetry updates...

i ended up typing up 7 poems yesterday. those are my first ones for November. i really like a few of them.

i sent out 30 poems today. 6 to Record Magazine, 5 each to Horror Sleaze Trash, Live Nude Poems and Synchronized Chaos (already accepted); and 3 each to Rusty Truck, Mad Swirl and The Beatnik Cowboy. when i hear back from these places i will pass along the verdicts.

Manchester United lost yesterday at Chelsea 1-0. they now sit 8 points behind Manchester City in the Premier League. hopefully the boys get healthy again and City collapses at some damn point this season.

the New Orleans Saints took care of business yesterday and defeated Tampa Bay 30-10. they are now 6-2 on the season and still in first place. they play at Buffalo next. that won't be easy.

Shameless was great last night. i am so happy the show is back.

SMILF was very good last night. i think this is going to be a show i really love.

Curb Your Enthusiasm was very funny last night.

Vice Principals was crazy last night. the series finale is next week.

Last Week Tonight was great as usual.

enjoy some music:

and now some of this and that:

on the DVR tonight will be Vice News Tonight, The Voice and Rolling Stone: Stories From the Edge. i'll be watching Monday Night Raw for most of the evening.

the New York Rangers play tonight at home against Columbus. i'd love to see the Rangers make it 4 wins in a row tonight.

i will probably be on here in the morning tomorrow as mom has some blood work to get done and a brain MRI tomorrow afternoon.

i hope everyone had a great weekend.
