Right, the Penguin from the original Batman TV series. No disrespect meant to Danny DeVito from the movie, or whoever voiced him on the various Batman animated series. For me Mr. Meredith is the Penguin. And I'm not even talking about that character. Mr. Meredith's other iconic role (aside from Of Mice and Men [assignment: rent and watch] ) was as Mick, the trainer in the Rocky movies. This guy:
More family over the Easter holiday, more thoughts, and fortunately more drugs. The last few days being a little quieter I've adjusted, but the energy level remains low. No swimming this week, but we've extended the pool time into May! Plus One! I'm still writing albeit slowly, Plus Two!
"Hit the guy hard!"
My neurologist, who can only tell me to touch his finger there and there and there, said I am doing great as long as I take it slow. "You're a marvel."
"You got him, Rock!," says Mick.
I've shared a lot of my life over these past few months here and other, and I grow stronger at the broken places for it.
OK, Mick, I'm ready for the sequel. Bring it on.
