Heat was on. It's an old inefficient loud pellet stove, landlord refuses to repair or replace it. Anyway, I don't mind since over the summer it averaged 88 degrees inside.

Just got back from a few days in the mountains of West Virginia. Went over for a wedding of a great niece and saw my sister and a niece from Wisconsin and a niece from Florida along with the relatives in WV. Pretty countryside but where we went was a small coal mining town. Wow; what a depressing area to live. The difference between it and here in Cookeville is like night and day. Nice to see relatives but I sure am glad to get back home.

Morning walk a balmy 26 degrees and clear at sunrise, 60 in here. Saw a Coyote on a hill above us sitting there watching. Never moved, just watched us. I put my dog on his leash, usually let him run, chase balloons and play. There's a pack of Coyotes here, saw them one morning chase down a deer, I can hear them yelping at night sometimes, and then there's one that is always alone.

Got my surgery date. Skin cancer (again)! This time right next to nose on the right. Have another "spot" high on forehead near hairline. It's not my first time. Surgery to take 2-4 hours. Will have stitches for a week, swelling and bruising.

When I think of all those sunburns I got when I was young.

NYgal, I hope the skin cancers are just basal cell carcinomas and not something that could eventually turn to melanoma. But a bummer to get them on your face. I've had basal cells removed from shins and neck/shoulder but so far not from face but I'm just early 60's and know my time is coming. My brother died at 40 from melanoma so I go to dermatologist annually for skin exam and now use sunscreen. But none of my other siblings seem to be worried or bother with skin exams. But I'm the only one that lives at high elevation which is a risk factor.

So far they have been basal cell. Hope if I get more they will be basal cell.

I'm pretty worried about the top of my feet. A few years ago I went to FL to visit family. Ended up on a beach in a chair under an umbrella but my feet were exposed and I fell asleep. Everyone was having a good time and I'm sure were not thinking about my feet. By the end of the day they were bright red. Putting shoes on to fly home the next day was a challenge. So far, nothing suspect.

I had a neighbor who had basal cells on her nose. She was pretty discouraged but they were taken care of. Sorry you have to go through this, nygal.

When I was young, and throughout life, I just didn't tan. I 'd burn, but never tan. So I decided early on to protect my skin. Guess I was lucky. It was the pits as a teenager but I am glad now.

Since I moved to Arizona I realized I have to take extra precautions. So far I haven't burned but I do keep out of the sun when it's at it's strongest.

NYGal -- Wishing you the very best with your surgery.
