Regardless of what you may have heard, the Bare Wall is open.  If the blog should not appear,it only means that I didn't have time to do it.  Ronn will be coming home to 712 Green Street tomorrow.  He is not well.

Today the Bare Wall received a new shipment of salt glazed pottery which is made in Julian, Pennsylvania.  They all are marked with "Harrisburg" on them, and we have a variety of pieces such as salt crocks-which also can double as cassaroles-batter bowls, and spoon rests, which make great host/hostess gifts.  There is no news about Ronn.

Obviously, I'm doing the blog Just came back from seeing Ronn, and it was the best visit in a long time----he still is in and out of napping, but we did talk a bit.  What a glorious day!  I guess all of my worry about the severe storms that were predicted but thankfully didn't materialism was worth it with what we have today.  ENJOY

Nothing that I want to post on the hospital front.  Ronn will be there throughout the weekend.  The store has received some rather interesting  and attractive fall and Halloween articles at reasonable prices.  Stop in and get ready for the season that's often the best of the entire year--- football, cider,football, colored leaves. football, apples, football, comfortable weather, and did mention FOOTBALL!

I really do not much to tell you tonight.  Everything is much the same here.  I'd get rid of that picture of Bill Campbell, but I don't know how to do it.  (My computer expertise is nil.)

Nothing to report from the hospital front tonight.  Bill Clinton can still deliver.  He did that last night at the convention.  With him you feel as if he's talking directly to you whether you agree with him or not.  Communication is a gift and he's got it.  This is not a political comment; it is merely an observer's observation.

Ronn was more alert and communicative tonight.  They seem to be perhaps on the right track with his various meds-----I hope.  Nothing else to report on that front.  By the way, the Bare Wall is open from 11:00 to at least 4:00.  We're getting some interesting things like iron insects for only $8.00.  (Since I'm subbing for Ronn for awhile, I've got to do a Bare Wall commercial once in awhile.)

Nothing to tell you about Ronn except his pain is being managed, but at times a bit overmanaged.  Finding the correct dosage so that pain is not an issue without putting the patient into lala land is not easy and varies from day to day.  On the brighter side, I heard some interesting stories about our esteemed mayor over the weekend!

There is nothing more to report on Ronn.  His pain has been alleviated and hia nausea has appeared to be taken care of(I hope).  Since Ronn has been hospitalized, I've developed a great admiration for those people in the nursing field, and Ronn has had some of the finest treating him.

Well Ronn seemed somewhat better today even after a biopsy of one lymph gland.  He's got a terrific nurse who is getting us through this ordeal.  Do doctors know how difficult they make life for their patients by becoming inaccessible?  Anyway I hope you have a good Labor Day.  It is the only holiday created to give us peons a day off from work.  God bless the labor unions, and to those of you who do not like and even attack them, check out what they have accomplished for the workers.  That was certainly Bob, not Ronn!

Labor Day!  Remember when that signaled the beginning of the political campaign season?  Seems now that it is an ongoing thing.  I'd vote for a constitutional amendment that limited campaigning to two months with no negative ads.  I'd like to hear what the candidate stands for instead of all those ads that tell us what the opponent supposedly stands for!  Ronn seems somewhat better today because I got into trouble when he thought I had overstepped my bounds.
