...from Chigagoland. Still flat on my back, since late March. Condition deteriorated in a hurry when the spinal cord somehow sustained further damage. Can't say much cause the Dragon software still not performing adequately, so I'm typing with a pencil eraser. Latest Dx, "incomplete quadrapelesia/tetrapelesia", so handz about 50% paralyzed, but still a lil' bit usable.
Just wanted to give y'all a shout-out so's ya know I'm still thinkin about ya. If ya have my number,
Well, I finally got around to installing my not-quite-vintage copy of Dragon Point & Speak on this computer last night, then spent all afternoon "training" it to my voice, etc. Thought I'd share the results of my first 'official' test, a reading of a favorite lyric by Mark Bolan.

Had some business in Flint today, so we stopped by the thrift store. Nothing much to report, found a new toy robot and another Billy Bass to add to the collection. The Billy is a little different from the others, has on a Sanity Clause hat and sings Jingle Bells, et. al. The real score of the day, a spankin' new pair of Nike Shocks for six bucks (woohoo!). I know they are neither vintage nor computer, but they were designed by or with the assistance of a computer, so that's close enough for me!
