JOE: Good evening Calliope.
CALLIOPE: Joe! Where have you been.
JOE: Out of commission.
CALLIOPE: How so?
JOE: I broke my arm in Florida toward the end of January. Just when I got cleared to get back to regular activity, I ended up in the hospital for an emergency appendectomy. I am just starting to feel human again.
CALLIOPE: Sorry to hear of your troubles. Are you ready to get back to work?
JOE: I am. I have been able to keep up with my columns and did a little editing of Marital Property but I have not been able to concentrate on it fully. But tomorrow I dive in again.
CALLIOPE: Glad to hear it. I will be anxious to see how it goes.
JOE: So will I. I don’t know how many more times I can climb back in the ring with this project but I will keep trying. I am reading Hemingway for a little inspiration. TTFN
