best laid plans, again

A funny thing happened to my resolve to post to this blog from time to time. Well, not terribly funny, but if someone had taken a video using their phone, I think it might have gone viral. Basically, I face planted. In the process, I managed to break my shoulder (the right one, of course) making to nigh on to impossible to get upright. Despite the fact that I knew something was broken, I finally got up, got my Google presentation going and spoke for 90 minutes to librarians from the Windham district. Those not living in this area will probably not recognize this district. These librarians work in the prison system. I was there to share books and some ideas for helping prisoners find the joy of reading again or maybe for the first time.

After the presentation, m BH drove me to the ER where they did indeed find some breaking in the shoulder. I got a weird looking cast (it stuck up to get to the shoulder area. It took a month but I finally got to see the orthopedic surgeon. Surgery is scheduled for next week.

I am in a bit of a hurry to get syllabi done for the Spring 2020 semester (2020!) and to grade the remaining assignments for this semester.

So, if there are no posts for a while, it is because I will be typing one handed, left handed, too. Here is a list of what I managed to read one handed in October. Note: turning pages with one hand is a difficult and sometimes frustrating task.
