Good afternoon cafe friends. My job had us in Africa for almost 4 years and in that time we ate all kinds of things that most folks don't eat here in the northern hemisphere (cicada cuisine pales in comparison to some of things I saw... and ate). And I'll just leave it at that...

Anyway, bad news from the Doc. I have to take my wife for a biopsy on a lump Monday. All of this just happened so very quickly. To be honest it's like living in a different world. I woke up this morning and there was a second of normality and then I remembered that there is this thing that we are dealing with.

But, if there was ever a time to be sober it is now. My wife does not need this situation and a drunk me. So 24 more please and thanks.
