News From Kae
Lots of cold weather in Montana. I hope it continues into February. That's when the annual Race To The Sky will be run. I'm hoping to go on course to get some action pictures. In 1999, using a film camera, I took many shots, and made a short photo essay. Stay warm everyone!
**My Chicago kids braved the weather and drove out for Thanksgiving. So nice to see them, and their Greyhound was with them. A sweet dog. They mainly did the cooking, and we had a hearty time!
I am still in the business of editing and book development for authors.
**November is always a tricky month, and after a pleasant, lovely October, November brought a winter blast, wtih temps below 10 degrees and high winds. Six to ten inches of snow, too.
2022 - the early months
**I updated in May, but didn't have the energy to fill in the blanks.
Early morning on 3 February, my friends and neighbors rushed me to the local ER because my legs wouldn't hold me up. I'd been experiencing some discomfort, a bit of pain, and legs being inconsistent for several weeks.The ER staff ran Xrays, CT scan, MRI and declared my situation an emergency. By 5 p.m.I was in a helicopter and airlifted to the hospital in Great Falls. Tthe next morning at 6 a.m., a doctor performed surgery on my spine. Subsequently, I was in a head-neck-torso brace, 24-7, for 3 months, but the good news--I didn't lose the use of my legs. Rehab and physical therapy got me back on my feet, and two weeks after getting out of the brace, I was driving my car, doing my own shopping, and slowly on I go.
It is aggravating to have a physical problem while the mind is still functioning as usual.
**My photography has been slowed. For several months I wasn't suppose to lift anything that weighed more than 3 pounds--that's my camera. Back at it now--when the weather cooperates.
**Even while incapacitated, I had several online art sales, both at Fine Art America and from one of my stock portfolios. Yea!
