A Stallion Stands In Need Of Company

June 07, 2016  •  14 Comments

One of the horses on the 2016 Corrales Garden Tour struck some nice poses for me


I can really relate to the first seven lines of Procol Harum's "Conquistador" during this current battle with lymphoma.

Conquistador your stallion stands in need of company
And like some angel's haloed brow
You reek of purity
I see your armor plated breast
Has long since lost its sheen
And in your death mask face
There are no signs which can be seen

Day two chemo has gone very well so far. They give me a lot of fluids, plus I've been drinking lots and lots of water, so I've racked up a couple thousand steps hitting the porcelain every 30 minutes.  No immediate side effects. But I'll have to see how things progress. They pushed everything through in 6.5 hours today, although I was at the Cancer Center for 7 hours total.

I managed to get in 5 hours of telecommuting for the office updating reports to comply with various changes in Department of Labor rules in what I call our Office Automation program we use for time sheets, accounts receivables and billing among other things. I originally wrote the Office Automation system between 2000 and 2002, and then we update it as needed for security, input from users and changes in rules over the years, but the most recent changes are quite challenging, as I'm discovering I didn't design the system to make it easy to adapt to the changes in some cases.  One advantage to working from the Cancer Center is I don't have all the distractions of building maintenance, hardware breaking and software issues. But then I have time to discover all the issues with my old code. Argh!


Aw some company


Beautiful Arabian face

Visualizing you healthy, happy, and strong my friend.
When you first mentioned teleworking from the cancer center, my immediate thought was "What?!!" However, I can see that it was a good distraction. I'm very glad to hear the treatment is off to a good start.

The photos are beautiful.
Sunshine super hugs!
