SO, HOW'S you're husband recovering from his accident?" my neighbor called over the fence. "Does he keep busy?"

Busy? A relative term but in some broad sense of the word I guess he's busy. We're all busy.

Carefully choosing my words, I explained that he was currently embroiled in a grass-roots campaign to address a major communications crisis.

Translation: He's incensed the USA network changed its morning line-up and "Quincy" is no longer on.

"I'm impressed," she said. "How are you holding up?"

Smiling, I shared how this accident has brought us closer in a way we never imagined in our 20 years together.

Translation: I spend a disproportionate amount of time in the laundry room, the only place in the house I am guaranteed no one will venture.

"Well, I certainly am impressed at how you all have managed to find the best in a difficult situation," she said.

Perhaps, but our biggest hurdle is yet to come. He just discovered the Home Shopping Network.

'Lost in the '50s

Hot rods and touring sedans will fill the streets Glen Burnie on Sunday as they make their way to the sixth annual holiday "Toy Run" car show, scheduled for noon to 4 p.m. at the Motor Vehicle Administration complex on Ritchie Highway.
