Welcome back My Dear Readers to The Other Shoe and a special article. As most of you, My Dear Readers, are familiar I am running an Indiegogo campaign (Danny’s Cancer Treatment Fund @ Indiegogo) to help me with the mounting costs of; treatment, transportation, medications, and In-Home Care. To motivate potential contributors I have created several ‘Perks’ within the campaign. One, and the least expensive, is the $20 ‘Perk’ ‘The Other Shoe Newsletter’. This entitles anyone that donates $20 (or more up to $40, which is the benchmark for the next ‘Perk’ up the ladder) to One Month FREE copies of The Other Shoe hardcopy Newsletter. Mailed to them, at the address they provide, will be FOUR issues of the newly designed and founded ‘The Other Shoe’ Newsletter!

.

This is a One-Page (Two sided) Newsletter that provides and overview and excerpts from the given week’s publications at the (two) blogs ‘The Other Shoe’ (at www.theothershoe.blog.com AND @ www.theothersshoe.wordpress.com ). I generally wait and will mail out and FOUR newsletters at the same time. However, for the ONE person that has taken the ‘Perk’ I have mailed out two and have two left to send to him. EVEN BETTER?!?!?

.

Just NOW at Midnight Pacific Time Tuesday September 23, 2014 I received a $40 donation! Now, they have picked the next-level-up ‘Perk’ called the Multi-SOCIAL-Media Shout-Out!. This entails anyone with a contribution of $40 or more to;

.

“YOUR NAME (ONLY with YOUR permission) mentioned in a posting on; BOTH my Blogs, Facebook for-Danny Hanning, The Other Shoe, and Danny’s Cancer Treatment Fund PLUS on BOTH my Twitter Feeds and On a WEB CAST on Youtube!”

.

I thought up this ‘Perk’ about two weeks ago, in hopes that people would like seeing their name; on my blogs, mentioned on my FOUR Facebook accounts, One my Twitter feed, and in a VIDEO on my Youtube Channel[1].
.

Just NOW @ 12:12AM Pacific Time 9/23/2014 I Tweeted

.

“DCTF JUST NOW Rcvd a $40 DONATION from Sherri Mikeska aka ‘The-Solitary-One’. So “THANK YOU Sherri Mikeska” ‘The-Solitary-One’ for your GENEROUS DONATION! THANKS!”

.

Thus completing ONE portion of my commitment of the ‘Perk’ the “Multi-SOCIAL-Media ‘Shout-Out’ ‘Perk’ at Danny’s Cancer Treatment Fund @ Indiegogo. This article, once published at BOTH blog locations will complete ‘Stage TWO’ of my commitment for the ‘Perk’. Within the next hour I will record, edit, upload, and publish the ‘Thank YOU Video’ for ‘The-Solitary-One’. Thus completing ‘Stage Three’ of the ‘PERK’.

.

The final Stage Four is the announcement on the Indiegogo campaign Danny’s Cancer Treatment Fund @ Indiegogo. As of 12:20AM PST I had noted in both the ‘Updates’ section of the campaign web site and the ‘Comment’s portion of the campaign web site my Thanks to Sherri Mikeska aka ‘The-Solitary-One’ for their $40 donation and picking my personally created ‘Perk’ the “Multi-SOCIAL-Media Shout-Out!”

.

Therefore, just as soon as I can remember my login for my second Twitter account I will log in and say “Thank you Sherri Mikeska aka ‘The Solitary-One’ for your $40 DONATION to DCTF @ Indiegogo!” That will be the fifth and FINAL ‘Stage Five’ of completing my commitment for the ‘Perk’. Now, let me make one thing perfectly clear!

.

I TOTALLY ENJOYED DOING THIS!

.

Sherri Mikeska aka ‘The-Solitary-One’ I would like to say “Thank YOU Sherri Mikeska!” for; your donation, your time, your kindness, your generosity… AND for picking the “Multi-SOCIAL-Media ‘Shout-Out’!” as it was the ‘Perk’ that I created all by myself! I have been waiting for someone to pick this ‘Perk’ so I could do this… procedure. I really hope that you Sherri Mikeska aka ‘The-Solitary-One’ sees ALL of these ‘Shout-Outs’! Now, I did see the ‘RL’ name of the person that made the donation. Well, the first name. However, since I DID NOT receive; an email, an Indiegogo PM, or any correspondence giving me permission to use the contributors Real Life name? I DID NOT reveal even the first name that I have record.

.

Since this is the very first of this ‘Perk’?  Sherri Mikeska aka‘The-Solitary-One’ IF you do want me to use your whole RL name, please submit your whole name via Indiegogo PM and I WILL add it to all the blogs, and Facebook. I WANT TO BE FAIR! As well, I want the people who DOANTE and request ‘Perks’ to feel SATISFIED with the provided ‘Perk’ they choose.

.

Again, In closing I would like top express my deep and heartfelt “Thanks!” to Sherri Mikeska aka ‘The-Solitary-One’ for contributing $40 to my Cancer Treatment Campaign, and “Thanks!’ for picking this ‘Perk’. I had a blast!

.

Adieu!

Thank YOU!

A Week in Review – September 14th, 2014

Daneil Hanning of The Other Shoe 2001

Daneil Hanning of The Other Shoe 2001

.

Welcome back My Dear Readers to The Other Shoe. Welcome to this edition of ‘A Week in Review’ for the week of September 7th, 2014. I managed to write and publish a few articles, in spite of the debilitating conditions that plagued my week. I thank everyone that has stood beside me, and continued to visit and read.

.

With little to say, my mind is wracked with doubt and concern, I will just jump headlong into this review. Without further adieu, I give you ‘A Week in Review’!

.

  • Sunday Funnies – September 7th 2014 : “Welcome back My Dear Readers to The Other Shoe. If it is Sunday? Then it is time for ‘Sunday Funnies’! This week Alexander R Hanning is busy at work building yet another ‘Home’ away from his two story condo. I found a nice cardboard box, placed it on my bed, and gave him old pajamas and torn up paper to play with. This video is a little bit of the ‘construction’ Alex engaged in getting the box turned into a home!” Alexander has returned for another visit, and another great video, here for our enjoymnent at The Other Shoe. Alex continues to build, and build and build on his many homes and residences. As Aelxander builds, I will make videos and share them with you, My Dear Readers.
  • Lost In Space – Saturn: “Welcome back My Dear Readers to The Other Shoe. Today we take the series of ‘Lost In Space’ to our celestial cousin, Saturn. Saturn… muse to millions of astronomers over centuries of time. The true ‘Lord of the Rings’ in our solar system, with no compare, no second place and no competition. Since I was a very young boy Saturn has captured, and held, my attention. The second largest planet in our solar system, this mighty Jovian lords over all other planetary bodies circling our star, Sol.” Without missing a beat, I write and publish another edition of ‘Lost in Space’ the ‘Tour of our Solar System’! Coming, later this week, will be another edition. This one will feature Jupiter!
  • Danny’s Cancer Treatment Fund – Porta-Cath Video : “Welcome back My Dear Readers to The Other Shoe. As many of you are aware, I am currently engaged in a battle with Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma Cancer. As well, I am running a ‘Cancer Treatment Funding Campaign’ @ Indiegogo. This campaign is to help with some of the costs associated with my treatment, medications, and paying for a caregiver’s time off from work. I have agreed to not make this campaign, or my cancer, a focus of this blog. Therefore, I am merely going to introduce, and publish this video… and let it speak for itself.” Out of shame, and even self-disgust, I had declared that I would “no longer report on my condition”. I have broke to give this one update. I kind of enjoyed writing about my adventure with Cancer… and the whole ‘process’. But, I had some people complain… and not contribute… so I decided to not write or publish about my cancer… my care… my battle.
  • Notes From Behind the Keyboard – September 14th, 2014 : “Welcome back My Dear Readers to The Other Shoe. I want to thank everyone that has dropped by, this past week. As my treatment has gone forward, my writing has gone backward. I just do not feel up to writing, in between puking. I am writing this article, ‘Sunday Funnies’ and a brief ‘A Week in Review’ today. Then I am going to get some more much needed rest. I am writing this article, first, so that I can get something off my chest.” With only days left I have made a difficult and life-changing decision. I will no longer go for treatment for my cancer. This week… Allen’s check(s) dropped from $200 to $300 a week (each) to LESS THAN $60 EACH! You see, My Dear Readers, THIS was the source of my concern. I can go and battle my cancer, with Allen helping me: get into and out of my power chair, get into and out of scanning devices, got into and out of gurneys and end up unable to pay my rent! Or, conversely, I can stop treatment and have enough to pay my rent. EASY DECISION! DONE!!!

.

With that, My Dear Readers, we come to the end of this edition of ‘A Week in Review’. I hope that everyone has enjoyed this article… enjoyed the work I was able to finish, this week… and enjoy coming to visit and reading. Seriously? I am pretty amazed that I was able to write and publish these five or six articles. I had hoped to bring you a review of ‘The Horror in Smithville’ but my health did not allow that venture.

.

My Dear Readers, I ask you to consider… again… donating to my Cancer Treatment Fund at Indiegogo. As I have explained, without your help I am forced to stop my treatment. WITH your help? I can go forward with my treatment and care. It really is just that simple, and that life-threatening. At every turn I have provided proof and documentation of my cancer.

.

There can be no reasonable doubt that I have Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma. Those that would proffer that I do not? Well, I can only guess that they wish to do me harm. There is a great sickness, in our nation. I have written about it often, and warned you, My Dear Readers, if it’s poisonous influence. I can only assume that this poisonous influence has reached, and infected, many good people that, would otherwise, reach out and help.

.

That brings us to the end of this edition of ‘A Week in Review’. I would like to thank all of you for dropping by, and reading and visiting. Have a great and productive week, and come back soon!

.

Adieu!

Thank YOU!

Notes From Behind the Keyboard – September 14th 2014

Danny

Welcome back My Dear Readers to The Other Shoe. I want to thank everyone that has dropped by, this past week. As my treatment has gone forward, my writing has gone backward. I just do not feel up to writing, in between puking. I am writing this article, ‘Sunday Funnies’ and a brief ‘A Week in Review’ today. Then I am going to get some more much needed rest. I am writing this article, first, so that I can get something off my chest.

.

As I stated above, I have curtailed my chemotherapy… “until further notice”. Reason: Between the ‘staging’ appointments, tests/scans and doctor’s appointments? Allen ended up with two paychecks each less than $60.00! Problem: Allen and I cannot live on that little money. Taken forward, if we had continued we would not have enough money left over, after; food, phone bills, and internet to pay our rent.

.

That made thing pretty darn simple, from my standpoint. Either the treatments and appointments ended or Allen, Alex, and I would be homeless. Doesn’t take too much higher math skills to figure this one out. Now for those that are tempted to ‘nit pick’ my budget? Don’t! Our ‘budget’ is a bare-boned as one can have. I only eat once a day and the4 same goes for Allen. Though I try to make sure that he eats more than I do, because he is working two jobs.

.

There is no ‘play-room’ in our bills or expenses. Especially not enough ‘wiggle’ room for me to continue having Allen miss work to get me to and from appointments and treatments. You see, I explained all this; in the campaign ‘Mission Statement’, here on my blog, on Facebook and pretty much everywhere. “Either I raise the funds I need for; Transportation, Allen missing work to help me, and associated costs of treatment “or I stop treatment”! Here we are.

.

You might notice that I have, again, started putting the ‘The Other Shoe eBay Store’ links at the bottom of all my publications. “YES!” I am trying to sell anything I OWN to make ‘ends meet’. If ‘I am lucky’ I will garner enough money, ny the 5th of October, to pay my rent.

.

So, here we are, just as I had predicted and feared. I am not sure just why nobody has reached out and donated. I know ‘what people are telling me’… but, I dare not think it true. Regardless of why I have reached the ‘end of my rope’ and find myself wedged between a rock and a hard place. I have given up treatment in hopes that I can manage to get October’s rent paid.

.

This next week I hope to publish (most) of the regular articles that everyone enjoys. I will do my best to push past… and get some articles written. This week… well, it was just not gonna happen.

.

That’s it, that’s all. I have done everything that I can imagine, and I am quite bereft of any ideas how to move forward and continue my treatment. I had really hoped that the campaign would garber support that I could use to replace income, and battle this cancer head on. Not going to happen… obviously.

.

To the TWO people that did Help? “Thank YOU!” that’s that. Have a great Sunday.

.

Adieu!

.

Thank YOU!

The Hardest Decision of My Life

.

Danny PET OCM 9-3-14

Danny PET OCM 9-3-14

.

Welcome back, My Dear Readers, to The Other Shoe. I come here, today, with a heavy heart and a troubled mind. Over the past four weeks I have, to the best of my ability, tried to relay information about my diagnosis of Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma Cancer. Even before any doctor gave my the diagnosis, I posted on Facebook, my impression that I might have cancer. That was in April of this year, the tumor was removed August 1st and the diagnosis was August 8th. However, I was fully aware back in April of my complete and total lack of the proper resources (enough food, enough clear filtered fluids, enough money to replace the time Allen would have to take off from work to help me) to battle my cancer AND keep a roof over my (our) head(s).

.

Now, six months from the first mention, I am more than half-way through my Indiegogo campaign to raise the funds I need to battle this cancer and keep a roof over my head. In the twenty days I have run the campaign I have raised all of $50. Honestly, My Dear Readers, I may have exercised poor judgment, but I have already paid out more than that for promotion and Facebook advertisements for the campaign. I honestly thought that more people ‘seeing’ the campaign… well, “Cast a wider net to catch more fish”.

.

With less than three weeks left, to the campaign, I have made a difficult and hard decision. I will no longer write articles about; my cancer, my adventure with cancer, my visits to doctors, my chemotherapy, or anything to do with my treatment or condition. I have seen my traffic decline, and with more than 210 ‘Shares’ on Facebook I have garnered only the support of two people. I fear that I risk loosing more of you, My Dear Readers, if I continue to write about my disease and my battle with Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma.

.

This was a very difficult decision to make, and I have given it a great deal of thought and consideration. My greatest fear is that; in pursuit of garnering more/further support for my personal battle with cancer I will loose more of you, My Dear Readers. I do not want to alienate my readership in the, obviously, vain attempt to raise money to help me battle my cancer. Therefore, as my health… and my reaction(s) to chemotherapy allow(s) I will continue to write and publish the regular articles here at The Other Shoe. For the duration of the campaign, I will continue to put a banner ad for the campaign at the end of the article. However, I will not mention the campaign. I will not write articles about; treatments, appointments, ‘staging’, or if the condition worsens.

.

For those that might have… wanted to follow my progress? I would like to express my deep and heartfelt APOLOGY! However, I strongly feel that more readers were ‘put-off’ by the articles than people wanting the updates. I am not, nor will I, abandon the campaign, abandon my treatment for cancer… with one exception. IF my needs for treatment ($$$$) exceeds my MEANS… I will discontinue treatment. It is not just my life that depends on the monies that come into this household. Allen and Alexander BOTH depend on the roof the monies that come into this household provides.

.

Therefore, if/when I ‘see’ that the continuation of treatment outstrips the disposable income then I will be forced to discontinue treatment for my cancer. You see, My Dear Readers, that was the problem from the very beginning. Even, back in April, I realized that we did not have the resources enough to; pay rent, put food on my table, pay needed utilities, and engage in a lengthy and expensive battle with cancer. You see, the cancer only effects one member of the household. The lack of enough money to pay rent and the bills effects all household members.

.

I started the Danny’s Cancer Treatment Fund @ Indiegogo[1] for that basic reason. YES! I DID set a very high goal! I thought, to myself, ‘Why not TRY to raise enough money to; get a means of transportation for my family… that would carry my power chair and free the household from the embarrassment of public transportation, TRY to raise ENOUGH to get Allen OUT of Southern California.. and JUST MAYBE get him to a place where he CAN know the joy of a ‘White Christmas’… and maybe even I could enjoy one or two of those… again.

.

YES, My Dear Readers, I did set a high goal on the off chance that generosity might prevail and I might leave behind a imprisoning station of life. That just maybe I could garner enough support to show Allen and Alex a ‘Better Life’ in a safer place with Four Seasons!

.

I might well have damned the potential of the campaign, and curtailed my chances at beating cancer. I took a huge risk… it could still pay off.

.

My Dear Readers, this will be (I will try very hard) to make this the very last time I talk about the campaign, my Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma, my chemotherapy, my appointments, and everything to do with my cancer. I will continue to; make videos, take pictures, and document my battle with Cancer. I will keep these media to myself, Allen and Alexander.

.

In conclusion, My Dear Readers, to those that might have been made uncomfortable these past four weeks? Made uncomfortable by my; asking for assistance, writing about cancer, writing about treatments, writing about the financially crushing effect of this diagnosis? I would like to express my deep and heartfelt APOLOGIES! I really mean that, My Dear Readers. It was never my intention to chase anyone away. And I fear that I might have done just that, which is why I am putting it to an end.

.

Again, regrettably I am unable to stop the campaign at Indiegogo. Once it is started one must continue the campaign until the time is ended. I will place the small box at the end of every article. I would very much LIKE to REACH MY GOAL! However, I will do my very best not to make anyone uncomfortable with asking directly for your concern or financial support. To the two stalwart contributors; Jason Kleppinger and abv718 “I THANK YOU VERY MUCH FOR YOUR KIND AND GENEROUS DONATIONS!”

.

With that, I look forward to writing and publishing the regular articles that I know many of you, My Dear Readers, greatly enjoy.

.

Thank you… for everything.

.

Adieu!

Thank YOU!

The Story of Daniel – Part Two – REDUX!

Danny and Darrell in 1959

Danny and Darrell in 1959, I am the Blonde Driving

.

Welcome back My Dear Readers to The Other Shoe. Today is Wednesday September 3rd, 2014. I am not at home, right now, I am actually at Orange Coast Memorial Hospital[1] having a ‘P.E.T. Scan’[2] done to my entire body. A P.E.T. scan is a Positron emission tomography scan, meaning that they use Positron emissions to create a ‘map’ of my entire body. Prior to putting me into ‘The Tube’ they inject me with a IV solution of D50W (a High density Glucose IV solution), mixed with a radioactive isotope. Cancer cells, and tumors, just love SUGAR! The cancer cells, and tumors, drink up the sugar solution and the radioactive isotope.

.

Then when my body is hit with the Positron Emission the cancer cells, and tumors, light up like a Christmas tree! BINGO! Glowing cells and tumors! This will give my oncologist a much better idea of just where my cancer has spread to, and where all I have tumors! This takes about five hours, and I won’t be back home till after 5PM. Thursday, I am going for a Bone Marrow Biopsy at Los Alamitos Hospital.

.

The Bone Marrow Biopsy is a simple removal of bone marrow from my pelvic girdle. They sedate me, and then drill into my butt cheek, down to the bone. Drill into the bone and draw out some bone marrow. Then the bone marrow is sent over to the pathology lab, where they will stain the sample and examine the stained sample under a microscope. Just LIKE the tumor removed from my jawline, they will discover if my Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma has entered my bone marrow. If that is the case, then they will add radiation therapy to my chemo schedule.

.

They will ‘nuke’ my bone marrow to kill all of the cancer cells. Friday, I will have the ‘Porta-Cath’ placed under my skin near my clavicle. I still need an MRI done of my brain, again to determine if the cancer has reached my brain. My first chemotherapy is scheduled for Tuesday September 9th, 2014.

.

PLEASE DONATE TO Danny’s Cancer Treatment Fund @ Indiegogo![3]

.

The following was written in September 2012 as a part of my campaign to raise needed funds for my Power Chair. I am republishing this series of articles because I am just too tired… to fatigued… and too depressed to write my regularly scheduled articles. I do not want to leave you, My Dear Readers, with nothing good to read. As well, I am hoping that, upon reading this story, you might decide that I deserve your support… and contribute to my Cancer Treatment Fund.

.

My Dear Readers, I just sat thought a two hour orientation for my chemotherapy. All through the orientation I kept hearing, ‘You need lots of extra fluids-orange juice, flavored waters, fruits, Crytal-lite ANYTHING to keep you drinking Quarts OF WARTER BASED DRINKS ALL DAY to keep your liver from being damaged by these chemicals and the destroyed cancer cells and tumors, “YOU NEED LOTS OF HIGH CALORIE FOODS” to keep eating all through the day (lots of little meals all during the day NOT large meals twice or three times a day) TO BATTLE FATIGUE and HELP YOUR BODY RECOVER FROM THE CHEMOTHERAPY.

.

My Dear Readers, I do NOT have fluids or extra foods. Allen and I have been (for the past YEAR) on a STRICT food schedule. We spend $5 to $7 dollars A DAY for FOOD. PERIOD! We do NOT have the funds Nor the budget to pay FOR WHAT I AM TOLD WILL PROTECT MY HEALTH AND BODY. This is the why behind my cancer treatment campaign. Without your help? My body will undergo terrible damage and I fear I will end up hospitalized. Can’t you PLEASE HELP?!?

.

The following is ‘Part Two’ of ‘The Story of Daniel’. I hope that you all enjoy this work. Thank you!

Episode Two -Formative Years & The Hannings Move to Pearland

The holidays, for the Hanning family, were an enjoyable and busy time. Starting in October, when the air became crisp and temperatures dropped, my father added a new duty to his agenda. He took on the creation and display of festive and seasonal decorations. Though my father never talked of it openly, he loved the holiday season. Oh, not shopping and not the cooking (that was Mother’s job), he just loved decorating the house for the neighbors. It almost seemed as though he regarded it as some ‘social responsibility’ to provide eye candy for the community and neighbors.

I never sensed he thought of it as; an obligation or competition it was his way of expressing himself. My father didn’t sing or dance or anything of that nature. Yes, he sang hymns at South Park Baptist Church but you would never see him bursting into song around the house of neighborhood.

Now, having said you might think that (like most Americans) Christmas decorations would have been his favorite outlet and forte. No, my father got a gas out of Halloween decorations. It started on Thrush Street, in Houston, but carried over to Francis Street in Pearland. I am not talking about just some paper decorations in the windows and on the doors. Oh no, that would not do for Ken Hanning. Like his activities in the garage, Danny was totally committed to doing everything he could to help make his father’s desires manifest in our home. I generally, would give Dad ideas. “How about a witch on a broom?” and “Oh, Dad, could we make it talk?” That is all it would take.

The first year that I have a clear memory of we went all out. First, I need to explain a little something that is kind of embarrassing. August 25, 1987 I was involved in an accident at my work, and this is where I believe all my problems with my neck an spine really had their start.

I was working in an ‘electronics’ storeroom at Target, on Pacific Coast Highway, in Manhattan Beach. I was doing a ‘visual inventory’ of a very high stack of stock literally minding my own business. This stack of stock was not on steel racks like everything else in the storeroom. It was between two shelving units and just kind of like the game ‘Jenga’. Well that day, even though nobody pulled anything out, from the very top of the 15-20 foot pile a Smith-Corona typewriter (still in the shipping crate) came tumbling down on unsuspecting Daniel.

The typewriter fell and struck me at the base of my skull @ my cervical spine. The impact caused multiple spinal cord contusions, closed head trauma, and loss of feeling and some use of my arm and leg. I was hospitalized for three months and then spent another four months in a rehab institute for Head Injured Adults. Since then I have difficulties remembering; some of my past and friends and even had a loss of memory of friends at that time. I have worked hard to rebuild my memory, but there are still ‘holes’… so, please understand. Thank you and now, back to my story.

“YES!” replied my father. That year he and I built a ‘witch’ sitting in an aluminum deck chair. She was scary, with the big black pointed hat and black robes and a really good witch mask. Hidden inside,was a speaker, and it was connected to an old intercom system that my father had salvaged from one of the companies he did electronic work for in the past. We ran wires that were well hidden from the back of the witch into a window and into my parent’s bedroom. He would stand inside the door and watch for children to come up the walk, and then signal me when they were in visual range of the witch. I would screech into the intercom and my screech and (then) high pitched voice would come OUT of the witch!

We made SO many children scream, and many ran away without getting their candy. And, as with all great things and accomplishments, there were ‘detractors’. I can’t tell you just how many parents came back with their children to ‘bark’ @ my father for “scar(ing) my children half to death!”. And here WE thought that was the point of Halloween! I mean, the children all got their candy, and we generally gave out the nice ‘name brand’ candies; M&Ms and peanut butter cups and the like. But each and every year my father and I would build a witch, and make her talk and scare the neighborhood children “half to death”.

Every Christmas we would get on ladders and hang lights on the eves and around the doors and the garage. We would put the tree in the front room of the house, right inside the bay window. I think I gained a feeling that, to be a ‘good neighbor’ you must contribute to the holiday season in your community. It was not enough to just decorate for the family, being a good member of the community meant you went that extra step. You got creative and tried, each year, to do something different and, bring life to the holidays. Now that I think about it, I think my father and his standard for entertaining the community at the holidays just might be where I started getting my sense of ‘showmanship’!

In school, I was a different boy. I didn’t like standing out. I didn’t like drawing attention to myself. While in Houston, it didn’t do too well in school. I mean, I generally passed and held my own, but nothing until I found choir. I remember being in choir in elementary school @ Madding Elementary. And, again, I didn’t stand out but I was part of entertaining the community. Through choir I was giving back to the school and community and being a part of something much large than myself in the process.

Then, suddenly, the Hanning family was out on the weekends looking for a new home. I understood why, I had listened to my parents talk and watched on TV as there were riots at the school my older brother Darrell was attending. It scared me a lot. I loved my brother Darrell; I still do, but back then…well. Darrell taught me; how to tie my shoes, how to play checkers and then chess. We shared the same room, until after we moved to Pearland and well… to me Darrell hung the moon.

Here is where I have more than a little whole in my memory. I don’t remember the family moving, I don’t remember when we first got there, and I have only vague memories of elementary school. I remember being sick a lot, when we first got there. I remember the smell of cloves in the choir room in the old elementary school. And one other thing; I distinctly remember feeling safer in Pearland. I remember my grades improved. The next block of memories I have, was starting at the new middle school. And, that, my kind readers, is where we will take this story up on Friday.

Thank you for reading. Thank you for supporting my cause. Thank you for caring

.

That, My Dear Readers, brings us to the end of today’s edition of ‘The Story of Daniel’. I am seeing just how short these chapters, are, and I am thinking that I am going to share more than one in the future. I hope that you, My Dear Readers, enjoy these looks back on my life and on my writing at this blog! That’s right, these articles were written by me, Danny Hanning, two years ago. My, how my writing style has changed and improved. My Dear Readers, I cannot stress just now difficult the past decade has been for me. Being struck by a falling typewriter (back in 1987) set it all in motion, and from 2000 on I have been plagued with failing health, growing tremendous pain, and progressively decreasing mobility.

.

In spite of all of that I have done my best to keep busy… to “Keep Moving Forward!”. Now, I have been hit below the belt with Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma CANCER! With limited to Spartan resources, my battle might well be quite short. With your, My Dear Readers, HELP? I stand a fighting chance of beating my cancer and not damaging my body, my liver, my kidneys… due to a lack of proper nutrition and proper amounts of fluids. I am NOT lying. I DO lack the money to purchase these ITEMS.

Thank you for dropping by… and PLEASE CONSIDER DONATING TO Danny’s Cancer Treatment Fund @ Indiegogo![4]

A Week in Review – August 23rd, 2014

Welcome back My Dear Readers to The Other Shoe. My Dear Readers this week has been a fabulously entertaining and busy week for The Other Shoe! With the publication of this weekly review I will have written and published TEN articles in one week! It is, currently, Saturday night at 8:20 PM PDT. Then articles and Ten dollar$ in donations at Danny’s Cancer Treatment Fund[1] @ Indiegogo equals = $1 for each article written and published. Just a bit of very depressing Danny-trivia.

.

Although I feel deep-seated depression over; my cancer, my increased pain, my lack of sleep, my lack of appetite, and how my limited financial resources condemn me to a short(end) lifespan. I would be a fool to not be proud at my; publication of ten articles in one week, the creation/design of an all new newsletter (for The Other Shoe), the design/creation of a business card for same, and the launch of Danny’s Cancer Treatment Fund[2] all in seven days. I would be hard pressed to think of another person I know that could accomplish all those tasks, in the same period of time, and make them all so unique and beautiful. I was looking over Part 14-A of ‘The Horror in Smithville’ and I was struck my the depth of the character I created, and just how he is to fit in with the story and characters. You will just have to wait, but trust me… Principal Marsch’s quirks are going to… play wonderfully… soon.

.

I am ever so tired. I have not allowed myself much sleep, this week. Even if I had allowed it, I doubt that I could have slept. I am beside myself with financial worries. Allen and I have just barely able to make ends meet… so far. However, with the addition of thirty dollars, or more, a week in transportation costs, more medications, and the loss of income by Allen having to take time off to get me to; PET scan, appointments, chemotherapy/radiation therapy. I just do not see how we will be able to continue to make ends meet.

.

I am doing my best, honestly, to keep the faith. Trust that the people who care about me, that value me… my friendship… my works… my contributions… will come to my aid. I have to… or I will loose the will to… live.

.

‘A Week in Review’ is a wonderful way for you, My Dear Readers, to catch up on all the wonderful stories and articles I have written and published over the week. Here, on the weekend, when you have some free time. Now, you can come here, to this article, and read, view and link to all the wonderful work I have provided. A very busy person, can, in a matter of hours read all the great works I have published. Therefore, now that I have set the mood and prepared you for the review. It is, without further adieu, I give you

‘A Week in Review’ for August 23rd, 2014.

.

  • IT’S ALIVE!!!! – “IT’S ALIVE!!! Rather…. It IS LIVE! Welcome back My Dear Readers to The Other Shoe and a very special article! This article is to announce that my @Indiegogo campaign Danny’s Cancer Treatment Fund[1] IS NOW LIVE! With the (soon) addition of my most recently shot ‘Pitch Video’ (and this one is GREAT! I am very funny… and quite entertaining… if I say so myself…) this puppy is up and ready for your contributions!” What a wonderful way to start the week! As well, by starting the campaign on THIS DAY it ends on October 1st, 2014! Talk about impeccable timing! I had no idea, when I pressed publish on this article, that this act was to catapult me into the single most prolific week in more than a year! Little did I know that this article would be #1 of TEN! With the publication of this article I set in motion the effort to garner the support I NEED to FIGHT MY CANCER!
  • The Mars Report – August 18th 2014 – “Welcome back My Dear Readers to The Other Shoe. Today is Monday August 18th, 2014. It has been just eleven days since my world was turned upside down and I was told that I have Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma cancer. I am still working my way through, like, the stages of ‘grief’ (?). I think that I am to the anger part. Anyway, regardless of my personal/health situation I am going to… “Keep Moving Forward” by writing and publishing as many of my regular articles as I can manage. That being the case, today is Monday and that means a trip to Mars!” I had really began to miss the publication of this article series. ‘The Mars Report’ IS one of my most favorite article series in all of The Other Shoe. Mars is mankind’s next target for manned exploration, and as such, we are destined to spend a lot of time exploring. Exploring, mapping and gaining a familiarity necessary for a safe and productive manned mission. Each and every week I get to share with you, and you get to enjoy, all the new; discoveries, images, and scientific experiments Curiosity and Opportunity have managed. I just love this article aeries, and I hope that you do to!
  • My Two Cents – “Welcome back My Dear Readers to The Other Shoe. Today I start on another new journey. As always, this will be a journey of adventure. An shared adventure between you, My Dear Readers, and me. ‘My Two Cents’ is an all new article series, that starts today with the publication of this article. Each week, that my health allows, I will come to you, My Dear Readers, and share ‘My Two Cents’ on; issues of the day, personal observations, current trends, foreign affairs, world news, and even (sometimes) political and geo-political issues.” This is the premier edition of an ‘all new’ article series. I have been searching for a way to publish an editorial article series without it being… too opinionated. The name ‘My Two Cents’ has helped me to establish an article series that does share my opinions without appearing as I am talking down to anyone. That was my primary goal, and I feel very confident I have met said goal. I look forward to many more weeks, to come, of this wonderfully entertaining article series. I hope that I write it so that you, My Dear Readers, do too!
  • BREAKING NEWS – Gov. Perry BOOKED in Travis County – “JUST IN – Austin, Texas: Republican Governor Rick Perry has just surrendered to authorities at the Travis County criminal justice center. Indicted for ‘Abuse of Power’ as Governor of the State of Texas, (R) Rick Perry was lead away, just moments ago, to booking at the criminal justice center in Austin, Texas. While dividing, along party lines, many in the Great State of Texas the reality of this situation is far fro ‘politically motivated’.” I published this article for one reason and one reason only! I saw that I could BEAT the major networks and media outlets, getting this news out, and I DID! I was not exervcising any political design or desire. I just wanted to be first in publishing ‘Breaking News’ for once!
  • Lost in Space – Solar System Tour – NEPTUNE – “However, I have to be honest about my limitations with my current diagnosis. As well, with the launch of Danny’s Cancer Treatment Fund at Indiegogo there have not been enough days in the week. Further, right now I am suffering with crushing depression because of the failure of my attempt to raise the money I need for (successfully) fight my cancer. With nearly 100 people ‘Sharing’ my campaign and only $10 raised I am beside myself with feelings of failure. I can only hope that this trend changes and… somehow… people understand that without their help I simply cannot fight this cancer within me.” This was the first time in several weeks, more like a month or more, that I was able to write and publish both ‘The Mars Report’ and ‘Lost in Space’ BOTH in the same week! Finally, there were enough new images from Mars and I had the will and good health to put together the next location in my ‘Toru of the Solar System’. I am not sure if I will be able to replicate this, next week, but I will try. I am quite proud of this edition and all the information and images of Neptune! This was an edition of ‘Lost in Space’ that brings me great pride.
  • The Other Shoe – NEWSLETTER! – “Welcome back My Dear Readers to The Other Shoe. I am working doubly hard for your attention and support! I have, just now, finished the Very First EDITION of ‘The Other Shoe – NEWSLETTER!’ That’s right, I have just spent the past two days working to take last week’s work and put it into a newsletter for The Other Shoe. I am going to use this newsletter to; put in mailings, hand out in local malls and shopping centers, hand out to residents and any other place I might find to spread the word of my work. Allen has even offered to put some in bags, as he is working as a cashier, at a local department store. I just told him “BE CAREFUL!” I would hate for him to get into trouble at his job.” Right now Allen is at his job with this newsletter! I really hope he does not get in trouble handing it out. I have really wanted to put together this newsletter for the past… two years. It was just luck, and well placed stars that allowed me to finally put this together and get it published. I just LOVE designing and writing newsletters! I started back in middle school, in Pearland, and honed my skill in the mid to late 90’s at a complex I managed. Plazawoods apartments needed a weekly newsletter and the owner was willing to promise to pay me for my efforts. Even though he failed to ever PAY me for my efforts? For TWO YEARS I took great pride and had a LOT of FUN brining a weekly newsletter to my residents. Now, I can design, write and publish one for my blog! JOY!
  • The Horror in Smithville – Part 14-A – “Now, My Dear Readers, we are about to start with Part (Chapter or Episode) Fourteen! However, there is a trick with this chapter. A trick that has caused the delay in the publication of the next twenty to thirty pages of ‘The Horror in Smithville’. Part (or Chapter or Episode) Fourteen comes in FIVE PARTS! That’s right, one chapter in five parts. They will be designated 14; A, B, C, D, and E. Today we will start with Part 14A. Now, My Dear Readers, all of the five… sections of Part 14 ALL happen at the same time! That is correct! The next five weekly episodes of ‘The Horror in Smithville’ happen (in the story world) SIMULTANEOUSLY!” This was/is the MUCH anticipated return to the Main story line of this wonderful horror story. As well, this particular chapter/episode has been a particular challenge to me, as a writer and as a publisher. If you read the excerpt above then you understand that I am (with the publication of this chapter) launching FIVE different timelines all at once! In time all FIVE will collide with each other… and what a wonderful episode that will be. ‘Oh, what tangled webs we weave!”
  • The Other Shoe – BOTH Blogs – Traffic 2014 – “Welcome back My Dear Readers to The Other Shoe. Today is Friday so a big ‘TGiF’ to everyone out there reading this blog! Just yesterday I was rummaging around my blog, looking at this and that, trying to glean some information about What you, My Dear Readers, are reading and what I can add or replicate to improve my traffic. Well, the best place to start for that kind of information is… Traffic Reports!” I have not published one of these ‘Traffic Report’ articles in many many months. However, I was just looking over the traffic reports for the Word Press location and I was struck by my international penetration! My Dear Readers, I had not realized just how many of you were from nations all over this globe! That you ARE; French, English, German, Indian, and Australian, just to name a few! I was so surprised and PROUD that my work is read around the world, I just HAD to share it with all my readers here in America… and Texas! I NEVER thought that my WORDS would reach round the world. Now I KNOW that they HAVE!
  • Notes From Behind the Keyboard – August 23rd, 2014 – “Welcome back My Dear Readers to The Other Shoe. With the publication of this article I exceed my greatest expectations for; writing, editing, and publication for a single week. In this week I have; written/edited/published eight articles for The Other Shoe, designed and published an ‘All NEW’ Newsletter for The Other Shoe, and designed and published All NEW business cards for The Other Shoe & Danny’s Cancer Treatment Find @ Indiegogo[1], Launched a funding campaign to raise the monies I need to battle my Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma Cancer and spent 10-14 hours everyday online promoting the campaign and The Other Shoe. Right now, Allen is at work (at Kohl’s in Huntington Beach) as a cashier and he is handing out copies of the ‘ALL NEW’ newsletter & Business Card to any/all concerned customers.” What good is a newsletter handout without a business card attached? Not Very Good, that is what! That is why I spent most of last night and all of this morning designing and printing brand NEW business cards for The Other Shoe! They have information on; The Other Shoe, Danny’s Cancer Treatment Fund[3] at Indiegogo and ME! I really had a blast designing the business cards. Then when I put them together with the all-new newsletter? THEY MATCHED! I have no idea just how I managed to do it, but once I had the business cards stapled to the newsletter it was obvious to myself and Allen that the colors MATCHED! I was so very PROUD to send them out, today. That was what I wanted, too. I wanted to distribute a package of information on my funding campaign for treatment of my cancer. As well, I wanted to put something out into the community I currently reside about my blog and my work. Mission ACCOMPLISHED!

.

That concludes my review of the ten articles that I have written and published this week. With this article included, I have written and published ELEVEN articles! That is something to me proud of, if I say so myself! My Dear Readers, that is just my work on this blog!

.

Along with the ELEVEN articles? O have; designed, written mission statement, shoot/edited/improved THREE videos for the campaign, designed and wrote an all new newsletter, and designed and printed business cards! I have not been this busy since my Power Chair Campaign! I am proud… although… My Dear Readers?

.

It does make me extremely depressed to think of all the work I have accomplished… just for ten dollars. L I will keep writing, and publishing and begging for YOUR help! I simply cannot stop! To stop fighting? Would to be signal that I am ready to die, without a fight. I do not want this canacer to beat me so early in this battle. However, without money I am fighting a tank with fingernail clippers.

.

My Dear Readers, this brings us to the end of this Week in Review! I hope that you have enjoyed this review, and I also hope that you have enjoyed this weeks’ work. I look forward to the coming week, and the coming articles and stories. Finally…

.

PLEASE My Dear Readers CHECK OUT MY CMAPAIGN… SHARE with FRIENDS, FAMILY, Co-WORKERS, Church Goers, EVERYONE… SHARE MY CAMPAIGN SAHRE my BATTLE with this CANCER! And… PLEASE? DONATE to Danny’s Cancer Treatment Fund!

Notes From Behind the Keyboard – August 23rd, 2014

Danny in Rolling Hills Estates August 12, 2014

Danny in Rolling Hills Estates August 12, 2014

.

Welcome back My Dear Readers to The Other Shoe. With the publication of this article I exceed my greatest expectations for; writing, editing, and publication for a single week. In this week I have; written/edited/published eight articles for The Other Shoe, designed and published an ‘All NEW’ Newsletter for The Other Shoe, and designed and published All NEW business cards for The Other Shoe & Danny’s Cancer Treatment Find @ Indiegogo[1], Launched a funding campaign to raise the monies I need to battle my Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma Cancer and spent 10-14 hours everyday online promoting the campaign and The Other Shoe. Right now, Allen is at work (at Kohl’s in Huntington Beach) as a cashier and he is handing out copies of the ‘ALL NEW’ newsletter & Business Card to any/all concerned customers.

.

I was only able to afford a dozen color copies of the newsletter, so he has only a dozen of the newsletter/business card handouts available. Just yesterday I published a copy of the current week’s newsletter. The ‘The Other Shoe’ newsletter will be published weekly on Sunday. It will contain all of the articles that were publishing the current week. I am not ‘ahead of the game’ enough to be publishing the newsletter ahead of the blog. Once I am done with the first course of chemotherapy I hope to be able to publish the newsletter with highlights from the current week’s articles.

.

That way the newsletter will act as a teaser for the blog, instead of a newspaper of the blog. One step at a time. Since I have already published the current week’s newsletter, I thought it best that I (as well) publish the newly designed business cards! My Dear Readers I really am quite surprised at all the work I have managed to accomplish in this week. I am very proud of myself… and very ashamed of my progress with the cancer treatment funding campaign. You see I was really hoping that Danny’s Cancer Treatment Fund @ Indiegogo[2] would have garnered more than just a single ten-dollar donation. Do not get me wrong, My Dear Readers, I blame myself for this complete and utter failure.

.

I do not understand exactly what I am doing wrong. However, I mean to discover the source of my failure and correct it. I know that everyone understands that if this campaign fails to raise enough funds… I will not be able to receive my chemotherapy treatments. That would result in greatly diminishing my ability to fight this cancer, and leave me with a greatly reduced lifespan. How many of you, My Dear Readers, have watched ‘Breaking Bad’? It is a wonderful television show, with particular relevance today for me. Because, you see, ‘Walter’ and I suffer similar fates. Walter was diagnosed with cancer, only to find out that his health insurance would not properly/completely cover his chemotherapy.

.

‘Walter’ reacted by deciding to manufacture crystal methamphetamines, to garner the financial support he required to properly fight his cancer. Even though I was thoroughly trained as a Pharmacy Technician… I have decided against the manufacture of crystal methamphetamines as a solution to my financial problem. I know I am failed to act in a way as to be completely self-supportive by making this choice not to break the law and manufacture & distribute methamphetamines. I accept my failure and if that is the reason, why, all of my friends and family have chosen to not support my fight against cancer? I accept my fate.

.

However, I just could not ‘see my way clear’ to engage in the manufacture and distribution of crystal methamphetamines to pay for my cancer treatment. I guess that some might see that as selfish and that I am weak for choosing to work in this fashion to raise the support I need. I cannot help what others think of me. Rather than break the law I have chosen to; write, edit, publish and promote my creative works and The Other Shoe. I just did not want to die of cancer in jail. I know that some might see this as selfish and refuse to show me support by donating to Danny’s Cancer Treatment Fund @ Indiegogo.

.

That is a cross I am prepared to bear. However, My Dear Readers, I am not slouching! This week I have managed to; write, edit, publish the most articles (content) I have in the past year! Further, I have also developed the campaign web site, designed and published the newsletter, and (now) designed and published a business card for the blog, myself, and the funding campaign. Short of holding a bank (or airport) hostage, to get television exposure for my need and my campaign I am doing everything I can! I am at a complete and total loss as to why I have only garnered the support of one friend. I am reconsidering Walt’s choice.

.

Next week I have an appointment with my new Oncologist, on Tuesday, and I am trying to schedule the PET scan for Friday. I am working has hard as I can and as quickly as I am able. With all good fortune, and me keeping the pressure on the healthcare providers? I hope to be starting chemotherapy week after next. Oh, there is the surgery to implant a Port-A-Cath ®[3] prior to the start of chemotherapy. However, my surgeon is already aware of my need and tells me that he can “get you scheduled the same week you call, Mr. Hanning… just for you!” I have a very good relationship with my Hem-Onc (Hematology/Oncology) surgeon. Barring any unforeseen obstacles, I should be starting chemotherapy by the end of the second week in September.

.

That, My Dear Readers, is why I am more than just a little bit ANXIOUS! If I am going to be able to request the ‘better Chemotherapy’ drug (cocktail) then I will have to be able to produce a deposit for the Chemotherapy Center where I will receive my treatment. You see, My Dear Readers, these type of centers? Do not ‘work on credit’… their clientele have TERMINAL CANCER and they demand payment at the time of treatment. That puts me in a ‘pretty pickle’, My Dear Readers. Ten dollars is… and I apologize for being so… up-front and honest… will NOT buy much of the ‘Good Stuff’.

.

There is my predicament… Now, back to the fun stuff. Below is the Front of the All New business card that I designed for The Other Shoe and Danny’s Cancer Treatment Fund @ Indiegogo. Check it out!

.

And, so as to not waste any space I designed and printed a back for the cards, too.

.

.

I have attached these, freshly printed, business cards to color copies of the (all new) newsletter. Allen is handing out a dozen, at work, and I am in the process of printing more for us to hand out… while we are at doctor’s appointments, PET scans and the like. Aside from selling my organs I am at a bit of a loss. A loss as to just how I am to raise the financial support I require. I require to help with the costs of; transportation (I am without my won car), the ‘Better’ chemotherapy drugs (That assure longer life than 6-18 months), time OFF from work for Allen so that he CAN help me GET to the treatments and appointments, better food than frozen burritos and frozen dinners, medications and treatments (that are NESSECARY but) NOT covered by my Medicare/Medi-Cal, and any/all other (foreseen and unforeseen) expenditures associated with the treatment of/for Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma Cancer.

.

My Dear Readers, I would stay and try to convince… persuade… beg some more, but my pain has become (literally) blinding. I am going to publish this article, then just as soon as I can ‘see’ again. I will begin work on ‘A Week in Review’ for publication today. That will bring my total to 9 or TEN articles in one week! You see, My Dear Readers, I am pushing myself just as hard as I can! Oh, for everyone that is thinking of helping? I was asked, this week, “Why don’t you get a job… and pay YOURSELF for your treatment?”

.

I very good question. However, right now I am classified by the: Social Security Administration, Medicare, the State of California, Medi-Cal, and Orange County Social Services as ‘Permanently Disabled’ due to/arising out of “a head injury August 1987, Degenerative Disc Disease secondary to head injury, loss of feeling/control left foot lower leg & left hand lower arm”. If I were to return to work and earn a wage? I would, then, be responsible for; $1,775.00 a month in prescription medications (NOT including chemotherapy medications and medications secondary to chemotherapy), PCP appointments = $375.00 quarterly, Oncologist Appointment = $575.00 to $1,200.00 TWICE to THREE TIMES a MONTH, Chemotherapy Costs = $1,700.00 to $3,2000.00 a WEEK (for 3 time a week therapy) AND I would LOOSE the $943.00 a month in Social Security Income. As well, I am sure that ALL the listed agencies would WONDER just How/WHY I am suddenly ABLE to WORK!

.

There is that. So, I am/have been disabled since July 29, 2005. IF I start working for anyone I will loose all my benefits and be responsible FOR all the costs outlined above. I am hoping that that answers that question. Thank you for your time and consideration in asking that question.

.

My Dear Readers, I will try my hardest to be back tonight with ‘A Week in Review’. Until then? PLEASE CONSIDER: Clicking on the AD BELOW… and DONATING… ‘Sharing’ this article AND my Campaign on Facebook/Twitter/Pintrerst/MySpace/____ all other social media. I am in genuine need… and any/all help is greatly appreciated.

A Week in Reivew – May 10th, 2014

Danny Hanning of The Other Shoe - May 6th, 2014

Danny Hanning of The Other Shoe – May 6th, 2014

.

           Welcome back My Dear Readers to The Other Shoe. My Dear Readers, I know that I haven’t published in several days, For that, there is a good reason that started Friday afternoon. I only have Allen as any kind of caregiver. As my disease state progresses, this is getting to be a less tenable situation. Case in point, this Friday afternoon, I was preparing to bathe… which in good circumstances is a difficult task. I had already bathed Alexander and he was drying in the front room.

.

When I had drained the tub, after Alex’s bath, I began to run it for myself, and left the bathroom with Alex in tow. For whatever reason… I get distracted… I was involved in getting Alex dried… For whatever reason, I took way too long. Suddenly I think the water is running in the bathroom!

.

Bye the time I get into the bathroom… it is flooded… as is the adjoining kitchen. I rush to the tub and turn off the water and pull the plug. How I am left alone in the house, with about an inch to two inches of standing water all over the bathroom and kitchen. Get everything off the floor… take off your slippers and socks… too late they are all ready ruined… still getting e3verything off the floor and into the front room… front room carpet is now getting wet… grab towels and begin this process – soak up water into large bath towel… lift bath towel from floor… rest half under my left arm at the shoulder… grip towel between upper left arm and shoulder and right hand… twist… repeat… about… ten THOUSAND times… Bye the time Allen got home, at 2PM, there was still about an inch of water all over the floors.

.

Now, did my best to clean up the mess I made. It left me in terrible pain for the past three days. It is Sunday morning, and I am still so very very sore. This, My Dear Readers, is why I have not published in several days. I hope that everyone understands, and returns to the blog… now that I am writing. It has been a very difficult and painful several days. Now, if I could actually afford a caregiver… anyway. Now, on with ‘A Week in Review’!

.

I must admit, and am very happy to announce, I managed to publish seven articles this week. Still keeping up this pace, for now the fourth month in a row!! I had a doctor’s appointment, this week, in L.A. and still managed to write and publish a full week’s work of seven articles. Yeah, I am pretty darn proud of that fact. Now, without further adieu I give you ‘A Week in Review’:

.

  • Sunday Funnies – May 4th, 2014 : “Welcome back My Dear Readers to The Other Shoe. If it is Sunday, then it is time for ‘Sunday Funnies’! This week has been a difficult week for me, My Dear Readers. My neck is swollen… actually the lymph nodes in my neck are swollen. All day Thursday thru Saturday I was running fevers of between 101 – 102 degrees. I have a horrible raspy cough, that crackles in my lungs like gravel, and I ache all over.” No wonder it’s been a rough week, all around. This is how it started out… with fevers, chills, and being sick! I had totally forgot that I was sick, just one week ago. Now, it is Sunday again, and I am just so very sore all over. I can hardly lift my hands to type, and my back is in terrible pain from my neck to my butt. Once I am finished with this article… and then ‘Sunday Funnies’ I am taking the rest of the day off!
  • The Mars Report – May 5th, 2014 : “Welcome back My Dear Readers to The Other Shoe. A big welcome back to ‘The Mars Report’ for May 5th, 2014. Tomorrow I must make a journey, by mass transit, from here in Orange County all the way into Los Angeles County, Rolling Hills Estates. I leave at 8:30AM and return home at 8PM. Yes, a twelve hour journey to see one doctor. Anywho, I am mentioning this because I am pressed for time, today. Therefore, this will be a shortened version of this storied series. Not to diminish this edition, because in this edition you will get to witness… … … Martian Dunes MOVE!” Amazing that while this was published and most of you , My Dear Readers, were reading this on Monday I was preparing for my visit, the very next afternoon. It HAS been a terribly eventful and stressful week, for Danny. Yes… I AM resting for the rest of this Sunday!
  • Lost In Space – May 6th, 2014 : “Welcome back My Dear Readers to The Other Shoe. An amazing fact came to my attention, just today. You see… I have been In LOVE with; Space, Space Flight, Space Exploration, Space Images, Star Gazing, Star Maps… you get the idea, since I was like an aware human being. Like most star-nuts I have a favorite constellation. The amazing fact is that in all the editions of ‘Lost in Space’ I have not once featured my favorite constellation. Therefore, the image you see above addresses this shortcoming!” Truly AMAZING was while you all were reading THIS article I was in transit to and back from Los Angeles! It was a very good visit, and we are working to get to the bottom of my frequent fevers and illness. This edition of ‘Lost in Space’ ended up being a very good edition, in deed. In spite of the terrible frantic pace of the week, I was still managing to mange my workload and some private time… some. In this edition, there are some incredible images from millions to billions of light years away. I hope that everyone takes the time and gives this edition a good look-see. ENJOY!
  • Notes from Behind the Keyboard – May 7th, 2014 : “Welcome back My Dear Readers to The Other Shoe. Now, before I get started on today’s edition of ‘Notes from Behind the Keyboard’ I wanted to take a moment to express my ‘Thanks!’ to people, without whom, my journey yesterday would not have been possible. I would like to say “Thank you!” to: All the drivers and support people at Orange County Para-Transit Access, Los Angeles County Para-Transit Access, the good people at OCTA and MTA, all of the nurses and support people at Palos Verdes Medical Group, my Primary Physician Dr. L. Gorlick, the phlebotomist and technicians from Memorial Medical Services at PVMD, and my caregiver and significant other of 27 years Glen Allen. Yesterday was my quarterly follow-up visit to my primary care giver, and good friend Dr. Laurence Gorlick.” Always wanting, and working, to keep you, My Dear Readers, in the loop… here are some photos taken while I was on my journey, and a flayer from the mall where my doctor’s office… is. It was quite a difficult journey, but time well spent. Take a moment and read about my journey, and see the photos and the flyer.
  • REVIEW – ‘The Horror in Smithville’ First Seven Parts! : “Welcome back My Dear Readers to The Other Shoe. I am sitting here, in an apartment way too hot to work… or even live, trying to get cool enough to start writing Part Eight of ‘The Horror in Smithville’ when I had a great idea. Prior to returning to writing the next chapter… maybe I should present a review of the first Seven parts! This will give me a chance for the room to cool…. Hopefully… and a chance to review everything that has happened to Timmy and Archer in the first sixty-five pages.” Here are LINKS to ALL of the FIRST seven episodes of ‘The Horror in Smithville’. I, originally, published this article to fill in time, and to encourage people to check out this on-going series. Much to my surprise, a Facebook friend (and someone from my childhood and hometown, Pearland,) asked me, on Friday, is there was a single place where she could get caught up with the story. Where are the first seven episodes? She asked. I would it terrible coincidental that just days before, I had published an article with just such a list, and links to all seven previous episode. Now, here is your chance to get caught up in, and caught up on ‘The Horror in Smithville’… This story really is gaining traction! YEAH!
  • The Horror in Smithville – Part EIGHT : “Welcome back My Dear Readers to The Other Shoe. Just as promised, I have worked through the night, and most of this morning, to make sure I was able to publish the much anticipated (and slightly tardy) Part EIGHT – ‘The Horror in Smithville’! You know, My Dear Readers, I am really glad that I didn’t promise any particular; plot twists, character changes, plot lines or story lines prior to writing.” Here it IS!! After many readers having waited another week, just to read this episode, here is the much anticipated PART EIGHT of The Horror in Smithville’!!! I am not sharing any spoilers, here today… so if you want to know “what happens”? You will just have to take a few moments and read this great episode, yourself! ENJOY!
  • The Deep Web – Review of First Three Issues : “Welcome back My Dear Readers to The Other Shoe. Today, Friday, I have decided to take the time to review the first three issues of ‘The Deep Web’ prior to continuing with this series. From what I am seeing in my traffic reports, a good many of my current readers are ‘new’ readers. New to The Other Shoe. Having said, I think it prudent that I review the very first three issues so that these ‘new’ readers can catch-up on this series.” After careful consideration, and much hand wringing, I decide to return to this series. Therefore, in order to get everyone up to speed, I have published this review of the first three articles. Be sure to check back, right here, nest Friday for Part Four, of this very controversial and informative series.

.

Well, My Dear Readers, that brings us to the very end of this week’s review. I hope everyone had enjoyed this romp through the collective works of the past seven days. I am simply amazed, looking back on the events of the week, that I managed to write and publish all this work. It just goes to show you, I really do want to share and inform.

.

Now, I a simply must rush. For I have, still, to publish this then write ‘Sunday Funnies’ and publish… before I can rest… again. Thank you for all your kindness and until we meet, again,…

.

Adieu!

.

Thank YOU!

Coming This Week To The Other Shoe – April 13th 2014

           Welcome back My Dear Readers to The Other Shoe. Welcome to my weekly preview article for The Other Shoe. Each week I tip my hand and give you all, My Dear Readers, a preview of the articles I have planned for publication over the next seven days. Now, you may have noticed that the past two weeks were devoid of ‘Sunday Funnies’.

.

This is simply because Alexander has not done anything… entertaining while I had my camera handy. I apologize for this shortcoming. However, rest assured that the article series IS still viable and just as soon as my camera and his antics cross, we will have another edition of ‘Sunday Funnies’. Now, let me ask you, My Dear Readers, if there is anyone out there that is handy with a pen or pencil and paper.

.

I am looking for an amateur cartoonist or someone that is just handy with a pencil or pen. I can provide the narrative or captions, all I need is someone to provide the people… even stick figures. I am looking to replace Alexander, in the ‘Sunday Funnies’, with a weekly political cartoon or animation. If your fit the bill contact me via Facebook, this blog or any way you see fit. Joe Tilbury, if you are still out there and can still draw? Contact me, k? It pays NOTHING, so far. However, just as soon as this blog makes a profit I will cut you in for a share.

.

Now, for the upcoming week. I can promise that there will be another edition of; ‘The Mars Report’, ‘Lost in Space’, ‘The Horror in Smithville’, ‘Coming this Week’ and ‘A Week in Review’. Beyond that I am not really sure, My Dear Readers. As you all know, by now, I will do my very best to make sure I write all the regular articles. As well, when I have the time and my body is not preventing me, I will do my best to bring even more articles. I have been toying with several ‘New Series’ and bringing back so older article series.

.

‘MMORPGs And YOU!’ May well be making a come back with the arrival of ‘Elder Scrolls On Line’. Launched late last month, I have yet to be able to afford; the game, game time or any ‘Beta’ or promotional copy of the game. Unfortunately, I do not see any resolution to this dilemma on the horizon. Rest assured, just as soon as I have a copy of the game, I will get it installed, updated and get into the game. Once in-game I will make; ‘In-Game Videos’, take tons of screenshots, and write up outlines of the crafting procedures, the plot based questing and an evaluation of the PvP (player vs. player) part of the game. I really hope to get this together, for your viewing and enlightenment, just as quickly as is humanly possible.

.

The Elder Scrolls is a wonderful intellectual property. It is being brought to the MMROPG world by Zenimax and Bethesda the people that brought us one of the GREATEST RPGs of the twentieth century, ‘Fallout’ and ‘Fallout – New Vegas’. With these two companies working on the Elder Scrolls IP I have great faith it will be a very enjoyable game. I do wonder… why they didn’t convert ‘Fallout’ from RPG to MMORPG… but I will take Elder Scrolls and run with it. Now, if there is anyone that might want to sponsor my work… a benefactor to assit me obtaining the game for purposes of writing and sharing on this blog. Please contact me as I will do pretty much anything… in return for sponsorship.

.

Last, My Dear Readers, I have (already scheduled) an appointment with an Infectious Disease physician on Tuesday. I am working to get a BUN/Creatnine test scheduled on Monday or Wednesday. Further, I simply must get a C.T with Contrast scheduled as quickly as possible. My follow-up visit with Dr. Gorlick is May 6th and I would very much like to have all the results prior. If I get these tests scheduled for this week, that will put a big dent in my ability to get all regular articles written and published this week. Barring the postponement till next week, of some of the; tests, scans and appointments. Then I will be able to meet all my writing/publishing deadlines.

.

Well, My Dear Readers, that brings us to the very end of this week’s preview article. I am really looking forward to the coming week of writing and publishing. OH! I totally forgot! When it comes to Part SIX of ‘The Horror in Smithville’… remember… we left off with Timmy in a GRAVEYARD! Oui! That was quite a cliff-hanger, huh? We know that the next adventure starts in a graveyard… that has so much potential! A little spoiler… the first five parts… are the most mellow out of the whole story! Upcoming will be parts that I will assure you push the very limits of juvenile fiction. There may come a time when many of my readers… refuse to allow their children to read the work.

.

It will not be; sexual, ultra-violent… but it will be; bloody, gory and fairly violent. As I have been working out the upcoming episodes… the plot development… the character development. Well, the story is taking me in unexpected directions with unexpected results. I do promise that I will warn all readers prior to the start of an episode of any above PG-13 content. I cannot simply tell you the images, or acts, that I have planned. However, I can tell you there will be physical violence that will scare and frighten.

.

There, that brings us to the end of this wonderful preview of the articles to come in the following week at The Other Shoe. I would like to thank you for coming by and taking a look see. I hope that you enjoyed getting a ‘heads-up’ of the week to come… I hope that I can count on YOU for being here for some great reading over the next seven days.

.

ENJOY!

Coming This Week – March 30/31st, 2014

 

The Other Shoe's Daniel Hanning

The Other Shoe’s Daniel Hanning 2/2014

Welcome back My Dear Reader to The Other Shoe. Well now, I would usually write and publish this article on Monday. Yet, something just caught my eye, and I just had to share it with you, My Dear Readers. If you are reading this article on Sunday March 30th, 2014 (or have visited and read articles between Friday March 28th and Sunday March 30th), you are taking part in the single largest influx of visitors my blogs have ever seen. Yes, I have two locations for The Other Shoe. The primary blog located at blog.com and secondary located at wordpress.com. I saw secondary only because it was the second location of my blog launched. Remember, I do everything at both blog locations. Writing, editing, publishing, promotions… everything.

.

On Friday March 28th, the secondary location (at wordpress.com) reached an all time high at eighteen visitors in one day. The following day, March the 29th, my primary blog location (blog.com) had an all time high of twenty-two visitors in one day. Yes, I know… in the grand scheme of things… that is not a lot of visitors. Although, for a my blog… Well, I am proud to announce this news. See, I have Google Analytics monitoring my blog.com location and the sister location at WordPress provides their own analytics, that I check regularly. For those of you, My Dear Readers, that have been with me for awhile, two or more years out of the past four.

.

You will know that I used to publish a series of articles where I shared the results of the analytics. I did this for three years, then I just stopped. I am not too sure as to why. Honestly, it always felt a bit too much like… bragging. Showing off and… well, that is just not me. I am proud when my efforts merit. However, and you can ask anyone that I went to Middle, High School or college with… I do not like to brag, about myself.

.

I am very proud of the traffic I experienced this week, at both blogs. Now, I have worked extremely hard these past three weeks at writing and publishing quality content on a regular basis. Just over the past three weeks I have introduced FOUR new article series. I hope that it is these new articles series that are driving this increase in traffic, and not some factor that I cannot replicate.

.

Now, I would like to share with you, My Dear Readers, what I have planned for the coming week, here at The Other Shoe. Monday, would have… should have seen the publication of this article. However, since I wanted everyone to know (they are part of a historic weekend of traffic), I am not really sure exactly what I will write… tomorrow. I would not be surprised if you saw a new edition of ‘The Mars Report’ or ‘Lost in Space’. Let me tell you all that those two series are the most difficult for me to publish. Writing them is not very difficult. In fact, I greatly enjoy creating the narrative for the images I choose. It is the; downloading of, uploading of, embedding of, and choosing of these images that is quite difficult. I am not complaining, just explaining.

.

This week you, My Dear Readers, will be privy to; an all new episode of ‘The Horror in Smithville’. The boys have… fallen… yeah, right… ‘fallen’ to sleep… and we all know what happens when young boys fall asleepon a rainy night full of thunder and lightening. Next, you will be treated with a new edition of (both); ‘The Mars Report’ and ‘Lost in Space’. Well, that is what I have written right here in my day planner for writing. Yes, I have a writing schedule written out in my day planner.

.

Coming up next will be an all new issue of ‘The Deep Web’. This edition will get a bit more technical, and once done… you will be better prepared to venture into the dark and deep web than ever before. Finally, you will enjoy another episode of your regulars; ‘A Week in Review’ and ‘Sunday Funnies’. Now, I think that I have mentioned it before, I am looking for a political cartoonist. I simply cannot pay, but anyone that would like the practice and exposure for their work, I am looking for someone to add to my ‘Sunday Funnies’ with political cartoons.

.

That brings us to the end of the week of articles, and to the end of this preview of the coming week. FYI – Wednesday afternoon I do have a doctor’s appointment to look at a… ‘growth’ on my jawbone. If that goes poorly… it may negatively impact my writing schedule. However, if it goes well.. then I just might be of the temperament to write additional works not mentioned in this preview.

.

Well, My Dear Readers that brings us to the end of this week’s ‘Coming This Week’. I hope that you have all enjoyed the previews of what is to come… and I hope that you all enjoy the fact that (if you are here on Sunday) you, My Dear Readers, have been part of the single largest influx of visitor traffic in the history of my blogs.

.

As always I am deeply honored that you came here and read my work.

.

Thank YOU!
