in a stable condition....

Neil Young:Live in Japan:1976:Heart of Gold.


this week's speia saturday 212 is looking at  snow. It's excess & it's absence..........
One of a Series of photos taken by some of the Anglo Saxon side of my family in the early 20th century in Lake Saranac in up state New York  ..To some extent,I am recycling These previous posts
{Me Thinks our ancestors enjoyed & gleaned more fun out of extremities than we do now?Just a Thought........}
Thankfully ,we have had no snow here yet this winter.Here is a photo Chris took up the road last Winter......
I am getting over my recent illness.Saying that, Im not 100% in as much as I get tired very easily still.
I'm now on stronger steroids for my asthma (flutiform instead of beclometasone) A fairly minor ajustment ,& still ,i feel, only moderate in terms of heavy-duty asthma (?).
I'm still not that sure what i would do differently if it happened again?
it was all so quick.
In the space of 48 hours I went from Hero -to-Zero. New Years's revellery to the back of  an Ambulance with an Oxygen Mask on......
It was   lower respiratory tract infection {pneumonia?} which in turn triggered a bad Asthma attack.........Hey-Hoy .
My asthma is controlled at the moment ,and I only feel a little hoarse as i type this post........... [above:Bob Dylan "see you later Allen Ginsberg".Basement Tapes Outakes.]
Here in Calderdale ,we are in the middle of the weeklong Wyrd Britannia Festival.
The festival rolled into Hebden Bridge Library tonight.
Andy Roberts gave a talk on LSD in Britain & the band Magpahi also played.
Andy is a great advocate of the drug.
I took it several times in the 70s and I fully support his plea for understanding
.A groovy night was had by all!
 
 
Roll on John:Blackpool 2013 :Bob Dylan.
those wacky Anglo-Saxon Zimnochs......

You'll be back up to speed, just take good care of you. How funny, your song sure makes my morning. It's, something my dad and I used to say to each other, although we always finished it with, make it soon big baboon!

Obviously the sled was fancied up for a parade (I guess?), but I especially like the picture of the horses in the snow. Beautiful. And yes, take care of yourself. Don't push things too soon. Allow yourself time to heal nice & easy.

The horse photo must have been part of a Winter Carnival. Lake Saranac is one of the places where winter carnivals have been held and still are.

Wendy said...

The horse photo is pretty neat -- would make a great poster. And those whacky Zimnochs, what fun!

The hoarse drawn sleigh is such a great symbol of winter but I've never seen it depicted as a parade float. I could almost wish to live in a snowy climate just to keep one parked in my garage.
Hope you are soon back to good voice, Tony.

Bob Scotney said...

Super photos. Tony - especially the three horses.
Dlad you are improving.

Patrica Ball Morrison said...

Your horse drawn sleigh trumps mine this week! I think the 3 horses with snow on their face are adorable. Wishing you continuing health improvement...

Kristin said...

Feeling redundant, I'll say Take care of yourself! And I especially like the shaggy horses in the snow.

Now can you imagine trotting along through Hebden Bridge in that wonderful contraption. Sorry to hear about your illness but pleased that you seem to be on the road to recovery. It is time we met up for a pint, I think.
