35

Today is 35 months since my diagnosis. We're rounding the bases to 3 years. Plan for the day on May 2? Dairy Queen.


35 is also Phil Niekro. Knuckleballer. Hall of Famer. Played until his was almost 50. His career represents longevity through guile and trickery.  When I was in high school, cable tv was a new thing. Superstation WTBS, out of Atlanta, was one of the first cable stations. So we watched a lot of Atlanta Braves baseball. I had a Braves hat. Bob Horner, Dale Murphy and Phil Niekro were my favorite Braves.
