May leave hosp. Monday.

Excellent!

Less excellent: they said at the post office that my postcard is to arrive on Saturday or Monday...

I only was able to put it in the mail today - as I found out the village I live in has no postcards. :-(

Maybe they send it to her when she is home again.

Same for me - it takes mail some 1.5 weeks from this side of the planet to travel up north.

But you can't wish someone to stay longer in the hospital, really. :)

Who (what?) is (a) Sassafras?

They tried to assimilate me. They failed.

MAN!  Ask a reasonable question around this place and see what happens! :)

Time to go for my walk.  Later y'all.

They tried to assimilate me. They failed.

No, really. English is not my first language (nr for many others on this site). I have no clue what your nick denotes.

Nickname (bastardized last name) from my college years, early '70's.

My brother and I went to the same local private college, he was three years ahead of me.  He was known as Twank, I became the Baby Twank, younger. My brother graduated, I became Twank but I have taken TWANKING to a whole new level, thus THE Twank (accept no substitutes).

They tried to assimilate me. They failed.

Sassafras - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Sassafras is a genus of three[1][2] species of deciduous trees in the family Lauraceae, native to eastern North America and eastern Asia.[2]

Originally, it was the main ingredient in root beer. At some point the medical community discovered that if you could drink several hundred gallons of sassafras extract in two minutes you had better odds at getting some obscure disease. So sassafras content was reduced or cancelled from some root beers. However, sugar content in root beer has gone up over the decades with no apparent outcry, myself excepted.
