Your Dying Spouse 722 - Finding Nero

One heck of a weekend. High fever, chills (Barb had to get every blanket, towel, jacket, and heating pad in the house to throw on me).

Ladron the Heeler (Chief Service Dog) was yelling at her to hurry up.

And hallucinations. I was convinced that my dear wife was weaving hammocks for rats.

A dreadful time was had by all, and I want payback.

Thus, I have taken on the Emperor Nero, and he will never be the same.

You're welcome.

Back in ancient classics-land
where dead languages foregather,
there was an accomplished fiddle-hand
who got Rome into a lather.
He really offered little mercy,
that mean old Caesar, Nero,
prob’ly ‘cause when he was thirsty,
they gave him wine, not beer-o.
They say in vino veritas,
but not for this Roman man
who was forced to isolation of the glass,
missing Camaraderie of the Can.
‘Twas drinkin’ pals for which he yearned,
and thus denied, well, Rome he burned.

Music from Sam Cooke, with What A Wonderful World...otherwise nown as the 'Don't Know Much About Hitory' song.

Thanks to Carol Ashby, Blessed Are The Pure Of Heart is back on Kindle, and will be available in paperback soon.

Friends are everything. I couldn't have done it.

Marley, the canine waif from Afghanistan, whom WE helped save, has a Facebook page! Please drop by to see how happy he is today.

Below are my recent releases on Kindle -please excuse their presence in the body of the blog. I haven't the energy to get them up as 'buttons' in the sidebar. You can click on the covers to go to the Amazon links.


  1. Andrew, I appreciate your humorous poem. But truly, I'm sorry it was such a horrible weekend for you, Barb, and the dogs. I continue to pray for you, my friend, as you walk through this. Sending very gentle hugs.

    1. Jeanne, I'm so glad you enjoyed the poem, and so appreciate hugs and prayers!

  2. This sounds absolutely terrible. I have only ever had one severe, delirious fever and it terrified me... Your resilient ability to find humor inspires me so much.

    1. Misty, thank you so much! As the fevers come more often, the delirium's a bit easier to take.
