Tommy - The Trials and Tribulations of a Girl?

Sorry, that Tommy is a bit late. But, I've spent the past two days recovering from a computer problem. Luckily I caught, thanks to my computer guru, that my hard drive was about to die (things were running slower and slower) and I've been rebuilding my PC's applications on a new machine. Not a fun job, but that the Great Spirit for good backups.

The next chapter of Tommy should be out tomorrow.

I've decided that when your 73 that recovery from major surgery takes a lot longer than when your in your 60's. And that the doctor was right, you will have good days and bad days. It looks like it's 2 steps forward and 1 step back (sometimes 2). Well, yesterday was a good day, so look for a new chapter of Tommy sometime this morning.

Hi all.

Well, it's my turn in the barrel. I've been diagnosed with thyroid cancer. So, on Wednesday 11/7, I will be having my thyroid and some lymph nodes removed. I should only be in the hospital for two or three days (I hope). Then I get to glow. I get to take a radioactive iodine pill.

Hopefully, I won't leave Tommy's readers hanging too long by their acrylic fingernails.

Why would he do that? The books. Naainish.

I'd made a trip to the College of Engineering’s Dean’s office to pick up the books and paperwork for the two classes that I’ll be teaching. And I’d met Dr. O’Riley, who I’m going to stay as far away from as possible. The Dean’s secretary told me that he’s a womanizer.

When I finally looked at the books that I'd been given, I found that they were well out of date and would not be suitable as a college textbook. I called Dr. Joe, and he was coming over. And I was now on my way to the University’s Bookstore to see what they were selling to students.

Did Dr. Kilmer do this on purpose or is someone screwing with me?

A decision. A bear. Is someone ...

Then on Tuesday I heard from Vickie and learned that the people who could allow Kai to teach were getting together on Wednesday and that she and Dr. Joe wanted me there. Talk about nerves.

Now, after presenting myself to this group of people, I was sitting in a room across the hall from a conference room where my fate, so to say, was being determined.

I sat there thinking, even if they allow Kai to teach, can I teach a bunch of guys with me looking like a girl? No, not looking like, but being Kai. Could Kai do this? Yes!

I watched the clock. Five minutes passed. Then ten minutes. Then fifteen minutes. Finally, the door opened, and Vickie was standing there. She had ...

The last barbecue. Can I do this?
Taos and Mr. Tsinajinnie.

It’s still Friday, and we’re at the resort, and it’s the last barbecue of the year. And there's more than the usual number of special guests here tonight.

When I went to walk, with Uncle Paul to the microphone, I’d grabbed Ajie's hand and started to pull her with me. She put the brakes on, and said, “Kai! What are you doing?”
