After my last blog, I received congratulatory messages from many of you. And, usually, I respond immediately.

At the moment, however, I’m weaning myself off narcotics after a back surgery nearly two weeks ago. I’m taking this lucid BP moment — (Between Pills)– to explain that you will be receiving a message shortly.


Those emails, cards and texts pumped me up each and every day. I mean it.

The surgery to remove the hardware, which was inserted nearly four years ago during my back fusion, should reduce the current discomfort.  Keep your fingers crossed! Hopefully this will do the trick!

Thanks, thanks and thanks again!

My best,


P.S. REMEMBER REDEMPTION is done! Watch for it in SEPTEMBER!
