This past week, a change came in the course of things. Good things happened for and around me. Since I think it's just as if not more important to cite these things, here they are:
The Deerfield Valley Cares folks granted me enough money to cover my power until the LIHEAP comes back.
The local Affordable Housing people gave me hope that it may not be long before I can move to a better, safer apartment.
Medicaid paid for my Medicare portion, meaning I won't be taking the financial hit after all and can pay my rent as usual.
My friend Christian Avard's interview with Gail Dines was picked up in several online columnists' commentary.
PAYT was voted down by a 2 to 1 margin.
My friend's neck surgery is healing and she is getting better. Slowly.
My old pal Jono came back into my life and he's doing well.
Nobody in my circle of friends and family had bad news, for once. At least nothing that hit us personally or so badlythat it can't be rebuilt. That in itself is a miracle.
So really, in the words of the late Mrs. Burke, "It was a grand week."
I'm going to leave it at that.
Happy Independence Day! May your hot dogs not be on the recall list!
