UPDATE, with a video - Mind the sign, said in the mode of the London Underground ever-present-voice as the doors close, "Mind the gap." Meaning, watch out for the gap. You don't want to trip and fall!



I thoroughly enjoyed making this video because I was outside on a beautiful early morning in my beloved Portland! My ride arrived quickly, and we were on our way!

All's well with the blood work, so I'll have Round Two Chemo tomorrow. I'm pretty tired today, and it's getting hotter by the hour with a predicted high of 99 today, so I'm thankful for my window unit even more than usual. I woke up around 3 a.m. and couldn't go back to sleep for over 30 minutes, then I got up for good at 5:50 a.m. to get ready for the trip to the lab. I am going to take a nap in a few minutes.

I am so blessed to have made such great friends here in Portland. One took me to the lab this morning, around 11 a.m. one took me to the bank and then to eat some chicken strips and fries with a Coca-Cola at Burgerville. I have left over chicken to take with me tomorrow--there's microwave at Kaiser Oncology, and I believe that those will taste pretty good!


Sometimes I need good advice, especially if I happen to be going the wrong way in life. Here's a great reminder of what to do, clear as a bell on a sign west of my building on NE Flanders--STOP. That's right. I will then think about what I'm doing and hopefully come up with a new, more effective plan of action. After all, that's a big part of life, analyzing and revising.


By the way, here's what the sign warns drivers about. I wonder if anyone's ever missed it and ruined their tires? Maybe someone at the Blue Diamond knows. Maybe I can remember to ask some time or other. I need to STOP and set this question in my memory, now.

In youth, I would have tried it just to hear my tires explode. I'm smarter now. Heed good advice always!

Those would definitely result in a very bad day for someone!
