A joke for the occasion

"O woe! O misery!" cried the wealthy lady. "My son is in the hospital, having an operation! His promising musical career is at an end! He may never play the grand piano again!"

Her butler was confused. "I beg your pardon, madam? Your son doesn't play the grand piano!"

"What? Of course he does!" she replied. "I hear about it all the time. People are always telling me, your son really is an incredible pianist, isn't he?"

Maybe it works better if you read it out loud.

Anyway, this is just a heads up to say I'm off to the hospital today for some minor surgery, and I might be out of touch for a few days while I recuperate. Obviously my wonderful blog readers are forebearing and patient folk who aren't ever bothered by me going for days or even weeks without posting...but it seemed worth mentioning here in case anyone is waiting for an e-mail or other communication from me.


  1. Hope all goes well and you have a swift recovery! The world needs RAB in action!

  2. Best of luck and don't stay away too long!

  4. Sorry, I was just shouting at my butler. What's that you say? Going to hospital? Do get well soon, old bean.

  5. Good luck with your operation, Rab!

  6. Hope all goes swimmingly!

  7. wow, good luck! bring some Kamandis while you recuperate!
