Back in the Land of BLOG
Just thought these chicks went with my new calendar. And they make me think of SPRING which is on its way. Several days this week we had temperatures in the 60's and 70's accompanied by the WIND most days. Today is cloudy and dreary looking, though. We need rain/snow!! The irrigation canals (I call them big ditches) are full of tumble weeds that must be burned before the water "comes in". The ditch riders and crews have an extremely dangerous job when they go out in the spring. There has already been one home destroyed and another fire that burned 1000 acres near our home.
Some things are better for Wally--the colitis is starting to "go away" for now with the help of the steroids. They are a double edged sword-- good for the colitis, bad for the rest of the body. The depression is still wreaking havoc, however. The first meds had horrible side effects, the next isn't quite working yet. I'd appreciate your prayers for him in this struggle.
