Artsy Lakeland Visit

Posted on

Last Thursday I remembered that the art exhibit I really wanted to see would be closing this weekend.  I talked Mike into going to Lakeland, FL with me too see some art! Sure, it was almost an hour and a half drive each way, but not too far away.  And a nice and warm day down here in Florida! We…

It’s true – I am overall a lover of selfies, but sometimes they can annoy me.  So I headed to St. Pete to check out an art exhibit titled, “This is Not a Selfie” at the Museum of Fine Arts.  This exhibit featured photographic self-portraits from many different artists.  It had some great pieces overall.  And the museum decided to…

Visit with Dr. Etame – My Brain Surgeon

I got to see Dr. Etame, the neurosurgeon who took out my oligodendroglioma brain tumor two years ago.

Monday was the MRI day at the Moffitt Center.  Got to see the…
