Tomorrow and Tomorrow and Tomorrow creeps . . .

. . . in this petty pace from day to day.

The bandages on my leg can come off tonight and I will be left with the steristrips and the stitches and I have another week of keeping my leg elevated whenever possible, although I forget and find that, especially when I am on my computer, my leg sort of ends up with my foot on the floor because it is more comfortable.

And I am spending a lot of time on my computer.  The political news from USA is giving me endless amusement but is all a bit scary.  The President has announced an upgrade of his nuclear arsenal . . .

A profound quote from Donald Trump  -

"You know what uranium is, right?  It's this thing called nuclear weapons, and other things, like lots of things are done with uranium, including bad things."

. . . and there is an agreement between USA and Russia that they will match each other's nuclear capabilities which means an escalation in nuclear weapons.  I hope that there is a system of checks and balances before anyone can press that red button or we are all in the poo.

And if you have not yet discovered Randy Rainbow  -  he is the one person who has constantly made me laugh over this very tedious time  -  and I still have a week to go before I get the OK to get back to any sort of normal life.  Thank you, Randy, I have you on Feed to Facebook.

I am still working my way through re-reading my Discworld books and am currently reading Masquerade which is a parody of The Phantom of the Opera.  I tend to find something new every time I read these books.  Terry Pratchett, as well as writing prolifically, must have read widely as his books are full of quotes and misquotes from other books.  There is an internet site called The Annotated Pratchett which gives the source of his quotes.  I have contributed one quote which was not listed and it was duly added to the page.  My favourite is 'Another shirt ruined' which is a recurrent theme in the Amelia Peabody series by Elizabeth Peters.

OK  -  so I am waffling; I'll go and put my feet up and knit *sigh*.
