Shoot, lots here to comment on, but no time right now. I meant to come post earlier but I got busy doing I don't know what.

I did want to share two pictures real quick though. Hmm.....can I post two at once? I don't think so.

Ok, the first one is Roger giving an interview. Look over his shoulder----a Freddie Mercury statue! I love that he has that.

Thanks Rainbow I'm nervous I get them in the same place where they give covid patients that are recovering blood transfusions.I hope they clean things well.I usually infuse over 6 hrs ×5 days.But I'm gonna try to do it 4 hrs ×5 days if I can tolerate it.

The second picture is also Roger centered. This is his daughter Rory She's a doctor now in London. I believe she treats COViD patients, but either way she's in the medical profession. I always liked the videos of Freddie sort of examining her when she was a baby. So sweet.

Good luck with the treatments this week Chevy. Sounds like a long time to be in the chair. Chemo was 6-8 hours, but only once every three weeks. I hope maybe someone stays with you so you have someone to talk to, or else you take things to keep yourself entertained.

Oh goodness Chevy, somehow I missed that you were getting treatments! I hope all goes well, I will say prayers that you stay safe and it is successful. Btw...I am half Canadian, my mom is from Toronto and all of my cousins and other relatives are there! We’re not so bad... : )

Oh my gosh, so much to respond to that I'm sure I'll miss most of what I wanted to say had I gotten to this earlier. I want to go back to the previous page to see what I missed but if I do, I'll lose everything here so here's what I remember:

First, I want to clarify that I wasn't suggesting we jump ship to that new site. I do like a lot of the features there, but though I did join, I have not posted so far. I figure I can play in both playgrounds for now. I like the intimacy on this thread and would hate to lose that.

Rainbow, did you say you have venison in your freezer? Where do you get it? Venison is available in the store where I grocery shop but I've only ever gotten it from friends who hunt. I do like it, especially venison chili. Speaking of shopping, I just placed another order with Amazon Fresh. I'm not quite ready to venture out to the grocery store just yet. But...……..Amazon Fresh can be a problem. For example, apparently I thought I needed gelato. I do NOT need gelato. Nor frozen mango bars or dark chocolate with orange peel. I almost forgot to get the milk I actually need. In the grocery store I just sail right by those dangerous sections.

MHZ, do you get to Canada often? As a teen, we lived maybe 30 minutes from Niagra Falls. Every single time an out-of-state relative or friend visited, we were off to the Falls,Canadian side. After a while I thought if I saw even one more bit of it's glory I'd think of going over in a barrel myself. Actually though, the Canadian side is quite impressive and we took the boys there for a vacation once. It brought a new appreciation of the Falls to me. As a child my family did some camping in Canada and also the states, but I remember the Canadian trip more than any other. It came complete with bears, a tame chipmunk by the cabin, and wolves howling in the distance at night. We went to the Expo in Montreal and I unfortunately once donated to the Canadian casinos just across from Detroit. It's a great country!

Shoot, I know there was more I wanted to comment on , but that's all my gelato-deprived brain can remember right now.

Thanks for the PMs this morning!

Quick clarification:
My chemo was back in late 2015/2016. It's very much in my rear view mirror now. I was trying to express an understanding of what it's like to sit for hours for an infusion, but I worded it poorly. I also forget that just because I've been here forever doesn't mean you know my history. : )

So...……………..pulling out my soapbox for just a second and then I'm done:

GET THOSE MAMMOGRAMS!!

Soapbox gone, and thanks again for the concern.

One funny little thing to add...I made it onto Brian May's Instagram feed last weekend! He had an online launch party for the King's Daughters, they were all there and having a good time. Brian asked everyone to post a picture of themselves in a party hat and hashtag it...so I did. He ended up scrolling through the pictures on one of his IG posts, and my picture was one that came up. He also read off one of my questions and had the girls answer it. So I was all hyped up....I had a distant connection with Brian, woo hoo! ; )


Sorry about the previous blank post. I was trying to quote MHZ and messed it up.

Trying again...…….

So, I saw the picture of people in funny hats on Brian's IG. Do you mean that one of those people is you???? I'll bet you are not telling which one are you. : ) I think it's cute how excited you are.

Yes Katydid, one of those weird people with hats was me! And yes....I’m not telling which one, lol! I have had Brian like a few of my comments on his IG feed, and it is really exciting. Like just for one brief moment I had his attention...that’s as much as I can hope for!

I used to be in Canada quite a lot, all through my childhood we always went for several weeks every year, a week at Christmas and then a few in the summer. Mostly we were in Toronto to visit my grandparents, but also in Cambridge where one of my aunts lived. Most of my cousins go to cabins in the north in the summer to fish, and we used to go with them at times. It is beautiful country! I have been to Niagara Falls a few times and it’s beautiful too. From where we were, we mostly went through Windsor and Saginaw and those areas though. I don’t go as often now that my grandparents are gone and my cousins are grown and more spread out. I went up last summer for a get together and it rained the whole time, which was a bummer!

Oh...and thank you Rainbow for the link on Breakthru. I really hope they can have it, but I guess with the restrictions on travel people like Phoebe won’t be able to fly here unless those are lifted. I think meeting/seeing Peter Freestone is really the main reason I would want to attend. I’m not the type to party with people or dress up like the band or anything!

@Katydy5

I mentioned being in a band in one of Thor´s threads. The band is attached to a music school, the members attend. Almost all of them are in their 30s and 40s and started learning their Instruments a few years ago, so relativeley late in their lives. We have been playingrock cover songs yet. When I joined the were playing those standard rock songs for music lessons, mostly "played dead" on Radio. Teh set has been getting more interesting since, with songs from Metallica, Nirvana, Joan Jett, AC/DC, Twisted Sister, for example. The band rehearses, due to our coaches time constraints, every two weeks, so it is all veryy low Level, with one gig at the school´s summer party, where dozens ofsStudent from every level perform. Most members have commitments like work and Family, so the band is not always complete during rehearsals. That low level has been fine for me, I am not that energetic and self-confident for regular gigs. I have looked for other bands, but I could not join, as there are more experienced and self-confident hobby-singers out there.
I find "What´s Up, Doc?" ok. I watched it because the director was part of the New Hollywood movement.

Our understanding of the pandemic and "Patient Zero" will probably Change. According to a recent report, a sample from a Frenchmen who died late December 2019 had been tested CV-positive. And in Italy they are researching an unusual spike of flu and pneumonia cases from October to December. The epidemic might have started earlier. I heard speculations About the vaper deaths in the US...

@Chevyman

I did not know you are unhealthy. I wish you good luck with your treatment and complete recovery. Get well soon!





@Rainbow61

Thanks for the info on Freddie´s favourite movies. I did not watch neither "Imitation of Life" nor "The Woman". The former was directed by Douglas Sirk, one of the many talents who fled Germany after Hitler came to power. I have a few Sirk movies on my list. I watched "Metropolis" years ago, there is a lot of literature about it- it drew influences from contemporary art and literature. Some critics considered it a mirror of German society´s fears and conflicts.

Steven, I remember you from Thor's threads but there was so much information there from so many people that I had forgotten about your band. Thanks for sharing again! I'm sure you've shared your instrument too, but I don't remember that either. Care to share again?

Rainbow, I did watch "The Women" from Netflix after I learned it was one of Freddie's favorite movies. It's definitely got a lot of sharp, fast paced dialogue. I can see where he would have found it funny.

MHZ. I didn't think you'd share which hat wearer was you! Worth a try though. : ) I've mentioned before that I only use IG to follow Brian, Roger and Rudi, so I'm not at all familiar with how it works. How do you know Brian liked your comments?

I looked at the link for Breakthru a few months ago and while I'd like to hear Phoebe speak and maybe even Rudi, a lot of their activities don't appeal to me. I mean, trust me, you don't want me to do any karaoke. And I'm not the costume type. I'm afraid I'd be pretty much a dud at the party.
