Ypres, Belgium


"Of the 300,000 British and Commonwealth soldiers killed in the Ypres Salient during the five battles that spanned the war, 100,000 bodies were never recovered. The battlefield mud was so thick it swallowed men and horses whole. 'The world’s worst wound,' the soldier and poet Siegfried Sassoon wrote of Ypres."

Trump flew over but did not visit any cemeteries, because it was raining.

"Winston Churchill’s grandson called Mr. Trump 'pathetic' and not fit to represent the United States.
[NY Times]

"But he [Trump] will not stay for a Paris peace forum that Mr. Macron is sponsoring to bring together world leaders to discuss ways to avoid conflict."

Embarrassing, and pathetic.

Enough already with the artificial knees. Next comes a year of therapy to rebuild everything. Then we'll see what's left. In the meantime, I do have some rather extensive picture archives. Cheers.

Three Weeks After Surgery

Recovering from surgery is a long, seemingly endless schlep. Best done by two people: one to do all the work, and one to endure all the pain.

Next Step



 So, here was my right knee they replaced in June 2017:
And tomorrow morning, they are going to whack up and replace the left knee…followed by months of recovery and rebuilding. Just so I can walk, and bend, and make pictures again.

Wish me luck, eh?
