Dave Oliveria writes in his on-line column "Huckleberries" that he encourages comments. That started me thinking about my blog. We need comments. When I write something that I am really proud of, and receive no comments, I feel like nobody is out there.

If a tree falls in the forest and there's nobody there, does it make a sound? That's what it feels like when readers go away without letting us know they were there.

I'll be out of town for a few days, as my cancer treatment is in Seattle at the V.A.
I'm getting brackytherapy, which is the implantation of radioactive seeds into the prostate. I'm expecting a full recovery without any serious complications.

I'll be back with a full report, well, maybe an abridged report, on the whole experience.

Here is a comment you old codger! (You said it! ;-)) I know the feeling. Some of what I think is my best stuff gets nothing and then from out of the woods I get comments over all things on -Emeril!

I don't want you to go 'blogrupt', that is why I am here and sounds like you are in good hands -- and you will do great!

Take the banjo.

It'll blow 'em away at the VA.

And now...Here's Herb "Glowin' in the dark" Huseland and his 12-string banjo. Take it away, Herb!

Safe trip!

Well, Herb, I guess we hear the tree fall...we enjoy the view of it, and the sounds of it....just we don't tell anyone about it...
we will try to do better...
