i’m waiting for a friend to pick me up, we’re going skating. stand by for broken bones. that can happen at my age right? break a bone just falling as far as the ground you’re standing on?

she has to walk her bull mastiff first and then head over to pick me up.

my mother called today and gave an update on my uncle, he’s dying of cancer. not sure what kind but who cares, it’s gonna get him anyway.
he’s never been a big person, always been no more than just skin and bones. always envied him that never getting fat and all. now that cancer is feeding off him it’s like buzzards trying feed off a skeleton.
there’s just nothing there for the cancer to get.

i haven’t seen him in years. the doc gave him 8 to 10 months with treatment and far less without it. he’s had one round of treatment and was on his way for more but got sick before he could get to the hospital.
they live quite a trek from the hospital.
i suspect he may not last much longer so i may never see him again at least in this life.

i feel kind of bad for his wife. i say kind of bad cause she’s always looked down her nose at me. ah well. i hope he gets the 10 months at least. she doesn’t need more misery in her life i guess.

they got engaged when she was 15 and he was 16. it was a different time.
they’ve been married now i suppose 50 years or so. some things do last and it’s sad to see the end of something that worked – him and her.
