  • Waiting for the wife
  • The continuing investigation into why I have high blood pressure. Cholesterol is fine (5), and triglycerides are low (1.6, which is good). I now have a referral for echocardiography to check heart functioning correctly, size, etc.

  • Libby "imaginationed" another princess.
  • Yes!
  • Caged sky
