Roswell United Methodist Church & Stone Mountain

Mighty cold start for the day. Frosty windshield.

Ashley and I rode out to RUMC for their Missions Conference.

Ashley was one of the two speakers for the whole group!

She wowed them! She just keeps getting better and better. Never too much Ashley!

We like to look at antiques. Here are some of the favorite things I saw.

This note was in the bathroom. There were two copies.

We checked out a store that had great craft stuff. The owner’s husband was an audiologist. I talked to him about Jesse. He only has partial hearing in his left ear. I’d liked to get him checked out. A hearing aid might really help him.
e Some of them are really small.

We also went to North Point Mall to hang out and do lunch. I liked this cake that a family had for their daughter’s birthday.

Cool chocolate fur!

We came on home and it was such a gorgeous day that I went for a 2 mile run. Haven’t been exercising much lately. Don’t dig the cold weather.

Watched District 9 on DVD. Really liked that movie. It was shot in S. Africa. We lived in Johannesburg for about 5 months. It was fun to see the sites again, including Soweto.


Went to Stone Mountain this evening to shoot some video and pictures.


Beautiful out there!

I thought Egyptian religions were long gone. Guess not!

Woke up about 6:30am after a very restless night of sleep.

I had to drink the other half of this jug of stuff. It wasn’t horrible, but 2 liters is a lot.
Kathy took me over for the procedure and I was out of there in about an hour!

They put an IV in my hand and one shot later, boom. I was out.
Propofol is a powerful drug. The doctor told me, “It’s the closest thing we have to turning the brain off and on.” I told him, “Just make sure you turn me back on!”
You may recall that Propofol is what killed Michael Jackson. I think I kind of freaked out Kathy. She asked me, “Are you nervous?” I told her, “Whenever I’m being put out I always wonder if I’ll wake up. I’ve had a good life. I’ve brought something positive to the world.”

Never can tell when your last day will come.

They did find one small polyp (The doctor said it was the size of a ladybug. Where did that comparison come from?) It was sent off for biopsy.

Hopefully everything will be fine and I’ll be ok for another 10 years.

I had a great hamburger at Red Robin. It was better to eat it than just watch Jesse eat his like yesterday!

Also treated myself to ice cream. Excellent!
Rested the rest of the afternoon.

Had a good talk with my Mom tonight. She’s having her colonoscopy next Wednesday. I was glad to be able to tell her it was no big deal.

Watched Burn Notice that I recorded with Kathy this evening. Smooth is smooth, baby!

Now admin work before crashing out.
