It’s been 2 weeks since the fall from grace but the good news is, patient zero is coming along very well.  Physical therapy has been the order of the day.  The hip is hurting but there is actual walking (with a walker), getting up and down, climbing steps, and other exercises.  Coming home later this […]

This little room that I’m currently renting is proving to be exactly what I needed for the time being.  A semi quiet, non intrusive, maintenance free, place to recharge and hatch my evil plots.  While the neighborhood is not the best, the location is ideal, just a short walk over to the stores, and the […]

Hangin' With A Supermodel...

I know some of you have been wondering why I have been posting all the pictures and news of Nikki du Plessis here on the Fritter.  While the male followers are surely enjoying the eye candy, some of you female wimmen types may be annoyed that I seem to have strayed off the minimalist path […]
