“Enjoy every sandwich.” – Warren Zevon

Dear friends, There is no easy way to say this, so here goes… I have been diagnosed with cancer. Without going into details, it’s the kind you never know about until it is too late. I am in for the fight of my life. Some of you know this by now and word is starting get around the coconut telegraph. After considering the pros and cons of going public with this, I have decided that telling everyone in person, or on the phone, is too emotionally draining. Why tell anyone?… Cautionary tale: If you ever don’t feel right, or have a pain that, in your soul, you know isn’t right. Act on it. Relentlessly.

I have promised Sue that I will maintain a positive attitude and my sense of humor and fight this for as long as I am able. It’s the very least I can do for her. And while I vehemently reject manmade religion, I do believe in God and I do believe in karma. All donations of karma will be gratefully accepted. Just promise me something… Be nice to each other.

I will still be on Facebook to occasionally darken your doors with my hideous brand of snark and sarcasm… plus, as a bonus, I also offer my shitty grammar and continued misuse of ellipses…
