Keeping you updated, Ryan seems as though he is improving with both conditions I told you about yesterday. The antibiotic drops for the eyes has cleared them right up. He’ll need to continue with the full course, but I wouldn’t think he’s uncomfortable now. The shingles look slightly improved too. They seemed to have flared yesterday morning, but improved throughout the day. By that, I mean, the rash is not as “angry” looking. It still has the raised, blister-filled nodules but it’s looking like they might start crusting over in a day or two.
Ryan seems comfortable too. He had a restful night where his pulse, blood pressure, and body language indicates no pain or irritation.
This latest trial he was going through was really bothering me. The old one-two punch. Kick a man when he’s down (you know, like Vantrease did to Ryan). Again, I just couldn’t sleep and was up for the day at one o’clock. I spent the night kicking around an event that I’d like to hold this summer. But this is not for Ryan.
It is for you.
Here’s my idea. It would take place in northern Virginia on a Saturday this summer. I’d like to find an open area, like a field (with restroom availability somehow), and have a combination pig roast and beer-/wine-fest. I supply, prepare, roast the pig and people could bring their favorite six-pack or bottle to put into the “community bar” for everyone to enjoy. Bring your own lawn chair or blanket, because this will be comfortably informal! No shoes, no shirts (ladies!), no problem… as the song goes. I’ll find a sound system , maybe even karaoke compatible in case the fun really cranks up. Come-and-go as you please. Mingle, or soak in the sun with a cold drink in a spot to yourself. No pressure is the key here. An inexpensive day to be acknowledge and thanked, by and for, me and Team Diviney. It’ll be a day to relax. Period.
Cornhole, anyone? I’m also quite adept at Flip Cup and Beer Pong. Fair warning…
A slip-and-slide might be interesting, aye? The possibilities are limitless. Perhaps a waiver is in order here. I hope so!
If you’re from out-of-town, this might be a good time to take a tour Washington, D.C. as an excuse — or added reason —- to come.
Anyhow, it’s something I’ve been thinking about as far back as two summers ago. It just wasn’t realistic at the time. Still, I never let it out of my mind for very long. I’m thinking it might be different this year. Well… I’m hoping it might be. I expect to take Ryan to it. At least for a little bit. I’d love for everyone to meet him!
Does this sound like something you’d enjoy? Would you come?
