Questionables: The Index

Every now and then, I throw open the comments to writing questions, and then take the next month or so to answer them all at length.  Below is a sorted list of all the answers up to July 1, 2019.  You can also search for “Questionable” since all the titles begin with that, and all the posts are tagged that.   There’s some repetition of questions in there–we’ve been doing this a long time and there’s been no organization so people couldn’t check to see what had been asked–but all the answers are there.  Organized.  Easier to find.  Progress.

Argh Independence: A Whole Blog Clean-Up

So here’s the plan:

I’m going to spend the rest of the summer putting Argh posts back up in sections.  But this time, all the posts in a series will be linked and will have a master page with the posts linked and labeled.  Needless to say, this will take time, and I’m doing other things–writing a book, cooking, shaving dogs, throwing out half my belongings–but my goal is to try to get one section up per day.    Today’s plan is the Questionables, but since there are a zillion of those, that may slop over into tomorrow.  I celebrated my holiday early. when Krissie was here (we had a fabulous time) so the next six days will be given over to being a cleaner, meaner blogger.   Well, not meaner.  You know what I mean.

In other news, I had a bitch of an MRI last week–90 damn minutes breathing on cue–but it was worth it: my heart function,  the EF anyway, is back to normal.   Went from 15% to 59% in a year (normal is 55 to 70%).  So I can ease up on the death jokes.  And get hit by a truck tomorrow, but that’s life for you.

In still other news, Krissie told me she knew how to groom dogs and took the clippers to Milton.  He looks bald in some places and chewed in the others, but at least the neighbors laugh whenever they see him, and then they pet him and tell him it’ll grow out.  I clipped Mona,  too, but she just looks like a choppy little lamb.  Milton looks like we ran the lawnmower over him.  Yet to come: Veronica.   Also, pictures if I can get that organized.
