A picture’s worth a thousand words


So if only the female DG was a really evocative writer. Or if she had a camcorder ready at her side. That way she’d be better equipped to capture the numerous steps and trips it took the male DG and her to barbecue and eat outside on their very pleasant patio during a mini Menlo Park heat wave tonight.

It’s only 50 feet from kitchen to Weber, but it involves a step and a half. Even the half step needs to be carefully considered when you’re a gimp. The full step down needs careful negotiation. But they did it in a spirit of real teamwork – the male DG standing on the patio and the female DG handing him the various components that made up their dinner from the top step.

Question: how many gimps make up a barbecue-ready platter of food as tantalizing as the male DG’s rack of lamb and veggies?

Fact: got the results of Friday’s MRI and it was good news. No indication of tumor growth and no increased “flair” (aka edema). Meanwhile, they ponder options – and potential risks – the male DG could take to reduce the edema and regain some functionality. For now, it’s continued diligence on the “Heidi” exercises.

    Man, does that ever look delicious! It’s good to know that neither gimping nor grumping can keep food lovers from their source of contentment. Congrats on keeping your priorities straight. And glad you could enjoy it in a celebratory way.
