I won't be skipping there, but I will sure do the happy dance when it is all over!

I think my first meal once I am healed is going to be a Quarter Pounder with cheese, fries, apple pie and hot chocolate!

And that's not even part of my normal diet!

Papa had a terrible sickness of his gall bladder. He had to have the surgery and he became very well after it. I'm thinking of you, Laurie.

Just got a call from my "daughter". Her son has been rushed back to the hospital in an ambulance with convulsions and the bump on his head tripling in size. He is one sick little boy and I feel so helpless.

Her real Mom called to tell me that she has her granddaughter there and will bring her to my place to play with Monkey and Violet tomorrow as she is really scared of what is happening to her brother.

That poor little boy and his Mom! Going through so much. I'll keep them (and your worries) in my prayers tonight.

This is what I have been doing the past week. It's an old form of bluing called rust bluing. In the olden days they used urine, but these days they make chemicals... come to think of it though, it is yellow
Basically you take the bare metal and clean it very well. It can have no oils on it. Then you wipe the chemical on, put the parts in a humidity box and let the rust form. After the rust has formed you boil the parts and convert the reddish color to black, then polish off the scale with 0000 steel wool. I'm doing my 7th application right now. From what I have read I will reach a point where the parts will stop darkening. Then I am done.

This used to be done a long time ago, but because it was so time consuming other methods were developed. It is still considered the best looking form a bluing and is the most durable.
And of course it can be done to anything metal, knife blades, wrought iron, anything you want to help protect and turn the color a bluish black.

I'm thinking maybe they shouldn't have sent him home in the first place. You can never be too careful with little ones. I hope it's nothing serious and he gets well, soon!

I worked in a neurosurgical ward in Denmark, back in the '70s. I'm surprised they didn't do some sort of scan of his head before sending him home.

I'm sending healing vibes in your general direction.
