The Socking Bentley in the Room

Oh Betties! It's been so long since my last post. And though I am mostly posting on Facebook now, that is no reason to neglect TUJD-proper. Yes, I've been busy (5 Pledges, Christmas holidays, family commitments, Sunday School teaching, Cub Scouts...drip, drip, drip...) but I also lost my voice. You can hear it going in my last Essie Summers video--and it's been gone for TEN WEEKS. Not gone but raspy, cutting in and out. Betties, I sound like I'm a dissipated rock star, ruining herself with cigarettes, cheap men and no sleep.

I'm actually happy that video exists because I would probably be blaming my loss of voice entirely on being carried away beyond vocal prudence at a Killers concert. But I remember thinking I should baby my voice along so that I could sing at the top of my lungs at the concert...so the bright memory of that extrordinary night can remain undimmed.  (Don't confuse me with logic.)

Anyway, I finally made an appointment with a vast medical mind for next week and here's hoping he's got some answers.

I leave you with a romantical selection and promises to forge onward:
