The Howdygram Store is selling my adorable greeting cards like goddamn hotcakes.

Sometimes I think weirdness is the only constant at Howdygram headquarters. For instance, I had a doctor’s appointment on Tuesday afternoon that I had to cancel at the very last minute — and I mean this LITERALLY — due to not being able to get into the car. I just couldn’t lift my left leg high enough ... sixteen fucking inches! I was so disappointed I wanted to cry. Sam called Dr. M’s office while I was still twisting around in the garage and told the scheduling desk that I wouldn’t be there ... and why.

And so I’ve decided to skip this after-the-hospital follow-up appointment and show up instead for my quarterly checkup at the end of May. It’s just too damn much trouble to get there. And this time I’ll arrange for a round-trip ride on the senior citizen transit bus. OLD AGE SUCKS.

I also decided to discontinue one of the meds I’ve been taking since I got home from the hospital a couple of weeks ago. It’s Lasix, a nuclear-powered diuretic that’s had me vaulting to a toilet every 90 minutes. (Same drug that filled 10 bags a day when I was catheterized at Baylor Hospital.) Trouble is, I have MOBILITY ISSUES ... and good luck trying to make it to the bathroom when you can’t fucking walk. Holy mackerel.

I guess I should apologize, too, for not writing a Howdygram post all week, although I have an excellent excuse: GREETING CARDS. Yes, friends, I’ve been hard at work creating more cards for The Howdygram Store because — believe it or not — my adorable designs have been selling like goddamn hotcakes! Here are four of the greeting cards I uploaded to Zazzle earlier this week; I’ve got eight more waiting in the wings that I’ll upload later tonight. Woo-hoo!
This is what I do with all the free fonts and high-resolution background images I’ve been collecting. Which brings me to our next section ...

Aren’t these fantastic?! I think my favorite from today’s batch of FREE FONTS would be “Palm Beach,” because the script is just amazing with lots of alternate characters and swashy things. I even used it for a greeting card design right out of the gate! And please note that “Segaon Soft” has nine weights (with italics for each). If you visit the entire font family sells for $140. I’ll include download links after the graphic in case you want any of these for yourself.

Incidentally, please don’t be too annoyed that “Spoonfull” is misspelled. I get nearly all of these free fonts from a website that originates somewhere in southeast Asia (either Thailand or Viet Nam) and the translations are usually hilarious. For instance, here are a three typical font descriptions that I copied for your possible interest and amusement.

Presenting Wilma Typeface, a cute and beauty script font which is bouncy baseline and wisely designed to create your text looks gorgeous.

I have more to write but I’ll have to save it all for another day. It’s after 9 p.m., Sam is unconscious in the family room and I have to eat dinner, which will involve waking him from a deep and lovely sleep because I can’t stand up to cook things for myself any more due to mobility issues. It’s complicated.

Thank you for reading this.
