A note from Beverly about Bev’s Burner
I got so many cards and letters from readers begging me not to quit that it dawned on me that I had left the wrong impression in my last column when I ended it with “goodbye.”
Actually I was sort of “ticked off” after I had written the column that had I been speaking, my “goodbye” would have been delivered in a “ticked off” voice.
Many of my readers probably already know that my cancer has reoccurred, and I am undergoing chemo therapy at present. Cancer is a nasty disease and some weeks I feel better and other weeks I feel lousy. I have neuropathy in my hands so bad sometimes I can’t type.
I’ve only recently got a computer that works with spoken text. In other words I can talk into a microphone and it (mostly) types what I’ve said. I’m not used to writing this way, so it will take me a little time to get used to.
Meanwhile I will be taking “intermittent” summer vacations. In other words I will write columns when I feel like it. Thanks for all your cards and letters and prayers.
