As many of you know, I had surgery to replace the bones in my ears 20 years ago. Lately I have been having problems understanding speech especially in church and last week in Montreal. It isn't a matter of volume. I can "hear" noise. I'm having trouble discriminating sounds. Background noises are intruding more than they used to. Hearing aid users know exactly what I'm talking about.

Well, I'm thrilled to get an appointment at Eye & Ear in Pittsburgh for 22 July. I expected to have to wait until sometime in the fall. I won't mind having hearing aids if that will help. I hate the embarrassment of having to ask a person to repeat. I don't understand people who, for cosmetic reasons, refuse to wear a hearing aid. Trying to communicate with them is frustrating for others. I'm sure several folks have felt that way about me lately. I hope there is a solution which will last another 20 years at least!

Welcoming committee

It was nice to be welcomed home by Tommie, PuddyTat and Tim.

I'm living in a little jungle

but it has pretty spots thanks to lilies.


It's a Shell(e)y thing...
