Signs
Thursday, April 02, 2015      6 comments

I love reading the signs along the way when I'm walking the dogs. Haven't seen any of these, tho. FIVE MAN ELECTRICAL BAND, 1971 And the sign said "Long-haired frea... Read more
Baby Come Back
Thursday, April 02, 2015      9 comments

Finally got my car, Rufus the red, back from the shop. My insurance company (USAA) paid for all but $250 of the repairs, plus the rental car. Since the rental was an automatic, I actually had to sit a minute and reacquaint myself to my standard ... Read more
Signs of Improvement

I was basically out of service yesterday. Had stayed up until 0400 or so, trying to sleep but being wakened by coughing fits. Finally got to sleep, but was woken up about 0800 by the garbage pickup trucks. Cracked an eye at the clock, and decide... Read more

I've had a sore throat at work the last 2 mornings. Shook it off yesterday, but today it's turning into a cough and scratchy throat. Pushing fluids, vitamin C rich stuff. ... Read more

This is the blog I had been working on before midnight last night, before a patient acted out. I got some minor injuries (scratches & bruises) and it took more than an hour to get cleared by the emergency room doc (nothing like having to get che... Read more

Oh, Pretty Woman
Wednesday, March 25, 2015      9 comments

Walked the pups 2 hours today. The weather dudes say a cold front is moving in fast . When I started the walk, it was about 65, but sunny - comfortable with the sunshine with me wearing shorts, tank top, and sandals. Then, the wind started! By t... Read more
Dead Man's Curve

My car is STILL in the shop. They had to order more parts (because nobody in town stocks Subaru parts - not even the junk yards). I hope to get it back next week. Meanwhile, I'm driving the rental behemoth. Compared to my little Outback, this th... Read more
Camelot (reprise)
Monday, March 23, 2015      7 comments

I admit I waffled about going alone to see Camelot. Nearly didn't go, but at the last minute, I went. Loved it. Met a woman in the seat behind me, who said she'd bought a late ticket. We were up in the "nosebleed" section, but some of the rows i... Read more

Going to see Camelot tonight. My buddy Bex called off - she's been sick several days, so I'm by myself (in a crowd of theater goers). More later!... Read more
Lazy Day

Yesterday was the first day of spring - at least, by the calendar! We had a lovely day where I live, but I had to sleep thru it since I work nights. Night owls, unite! ... Read more

I think why I was so surprised about Finian's Rainbow being so racist was that it was filmed in 1968. The little town of Rainbow Valley, Missitucky, had Blacks and whites living comfortably together. One of the characters is Howard, a Black bota... Read more

How Are Things in Glocca Morra?
Wednesday, March 18, 2015      6 comments

I had dinner tonight with my best buddy, Bex. She made corned beef, cabbage, taters, carrots and onions. We started with an arugula, avocado, and heirloom tomato salad with a light vinagarette dressing. Yum. We watched Finin's Rainbow (Fred Asta... Read more
