It's been a tough weekend. I got a call late Saturday night that a long time friend of mine that has been struggling with kemotherapy for her cancer just had a stroke and was in the hospital. I went to see her Sunday and it was really tough seeing my friend I've known for 25+ years as a vibrant and fun person reduced to this frail person bedridden with her kids who i also know at her side to help her. Very tough to deal with. Then I get home and check my email and find out my aunt/stepmother who is now married to my father is in the hospital in Iowa City with pneumonia and other physical problems.So I have to break the news to my mother and ask if she would like me to drive her over there Monday, knowing my father would also be there at the hospital when we visit. Being a good sister, she has me drive her over and we spend about an hour. Granted Helen is 83 and has not been in the best health for a while but it is still tough going to the hospital to visit family,friends or whoever.We survived the visit and put up with my father, although it was really tough for my mother to walk as far as we did just two weeks after her latest surgery on her hip. She is doing much better and is in a lot less pain so I guess that is an improvement. I guess that is it. I hate to bend your ears with trivial stuff but it helps to get rid of the pain some times by leaving it here on this screen. Take care. Roger

Roger -
Very sorry to read of your difficult week. It seems, sometimes, that the news when bad just piles upon itself, one event to another.

The only words of condolence are "be there" for your family and friend, and take care of them to the best of your ability. It will not only be appreciated, but will, in and of itself, prove to be a salve for your own wounds.

Our thoughts, and I am sure I speak collectively, are with you.

This one's to Roger Gjovig:

I have an idea of what you're going through. I can only hope that the ordeal will end with a recovery for those ailing, and that they are back to their old selves soon. Keep your loved ones close.

Happy birthday, Mr. Ellison! I'm the person you once phoned (because of Our Mutual Friend Sally's encouragement) to give a first-page story critique on MY birthday (about four or so years ago) and we got to talking about our favorite novel, Don Westlake's _Trust Me On This_, and several aspects of good and bad writing (grin). I have never forgotten this, and I still appreciate it. You reminded me of my dad, who has been gone for years . . . and my professors in college (the ones I liked.) I hope that your Memorial Day birthday was happy and joyful!

Sincerely,
Shalanna Collins

I just stopped by this site for the first time in a while and noticed this software, so I figured I'd leave a message for Mr. Ellison.

I'll forego the story as to how I became a fan of yours. The larger point is that I simply wanted to say to you, indirectly though it may be, that you and your work are an inspiration to me.

Thanks for sticking with it.

Don't know if any of the LA-Based Webderlanders would want to come, but From the Department of Spousal Promotion: My wife (a jazz singer) has been booked this upcoming weekend at The Gardenia Restaurant and Lounge in West Hollywood. They called us yesterday to add a second night, so she'll be there both Friday and Saturday nights. Show starts at 9. Email me for the phone number if you'd like to come, we'd love to see and meet youse guys. Reservations highly recommended at this point.

Dear Reactionary:

So only white women can qualify as British, hm? I'm certainly pro-abortion for trolls ...

Ever hear of the Kyben?

Just because we haven't heard from them in a while doesn't mean they're not out there.... somewhere....

Don't turn your back, chum!

Harlan, happy birthday from a fan.

Brian,

Thanks for posting this. Most of Granada's operations are still based in Manchester and so this will make interesting reading to many here.
