Lesson from a sick bed

Last week, I was sick. I mean really sick. So sick that in four days, I dropped 18 pounds. In fact, I didn’t eat anything during those four days. I did drink water (after becoming seriously dehydrated) and was able to deal with a bit of tea.

A serious tragedy very nearly happened this week at the Cincinnati Zoo. Somehow a 4-year-old child escaped from his mother and wound up in the gorilla compound where he was snatched up by a 17-year-old male silverback gorilla. Zoo officials quickly made the decision to shoot the gorilla.

The other night I was looking for something in my home office. He more I looked, the more files I went through. In fact, I found two boxes and one pile of “stuff to be filed someday.” My home office now looks as though it has been hit by a clutter bomb. I have files on taxes back to 1972.
