Weekend Open Mic

Weather: It looks like rain in Jonco’s wet terrain. Temps aren’t bad but I could do with a little less moisture.

The weekend: Going to a St. Baldrick’s fundraiser that benefits children fighting cancer on Saturday. I have some friends that will be shaving their heads for the cause.

TV Binging: Caught up with Killing Eve (BBC America) and started watching Barry (HBO). I’m also really enjoying The Village (NBC).

Likes: We’re approaching 98,000 likes on B&P since we implemented the Like button 16 months ago (July 2017).

That’s it from B&P Headquarters in St. Louis. What’s going on in your world?

  1. Hope the Kids cancer fundraiser does well. We have them here as well, advances in research medicine have done wonders, but a long way to go before no child will have to die. It is an insidious indiscriminate disease, affects whole families. I underwent a shoulder joint replacement 9 days ago, and first week felt so sorry for myself, then I thought to get to over 70 and had a relatively healthy life, is no reason to wallow in self pity. Sick children face their pain and endure the treatment with far more bravery than we could ever imagine.

    • It was heartbreaking to hear parents come up and talk about their kids who died from one form of cancer or another. Someone there said that it’s a very small percentage of money for cancer research is specifically earmarked for cancer in children. I don’t know how much they raised but I had 4 friends that had their heads shaved today. One of them hasn’t had a haircut or shave since he did the same thing last year. This is his annual haircut.
