Laying low

So, gentle reader, if you have been following my summer heath woes, you’ll know that I’ve taken a ton of medical testing only to find out my liver is not as bad as initially suspected.

I had been told by my surgeon, that based on the results of my last,we would talk about the outside chance of a liver biopsy. Well, last blood work was good, and that was good.

So imagine my dismay, when I got a phone call, informing that I had an October 6th appointment to come in and talk to him regarding a biopsy . Because I explained that it was an option, I felt I was given no need to discuss it. The receptionist was going to say I was denying a biopsy. Whoa, I said I would have one when needed. I said I hadn’t been given a reason for one.

Nothing like having to fight a good fight.

Do Yourself a Simple Favor….

Spare yourself seeing “A Simple Favor.”

Perhaps a millennial might have found it good. Age has different tastes.

It was starting out as a good film, but just got a little twisted as the plot went on.

And if you are wondering where former cast mate of Designing Women Jean Smart is, well she is an alcoholic bit player in this film.

So what had the appearance of a comic thriller, well, do yourself a favor- miss it on cable

Really Disgusted

Back when cell phones were relatively new, does any one besides me remember the ” Do not call list”?

What the hell happened to it?

Jim got a call today claiming his social security numbers, yes numbers- tip #1, were all fraudulent. You get a call from the IRS and return the call to the far west, in this case, Arizona, saying you are in big trouble with the IRS and your wages are going to be garnished.

Instead of helping America get better again, how about helping old and Senior Americans, and putting scammers behind bars.

Alone again, Naturally…

**with apologies to Gilbert O’Sullivan**

It’s 5:14 pm and it’s just me and my buddy.

I am waiting patiently to get my first call for school. The problem there is I might have given my right temple a pseudo-concussion by banging it on the dryer door. I have a right leg flare up that, for someone doing low carbs and has a liver on lock down.,that I am just shaking my head.

I know Man plans and God laughs, but I’m thinking I ‘ll chuckle with God if it gets me a week or two of extra vacation.

Gangs all here

My sister- in- law is hiking so Mom is spending the weekend with us.

We went to 10am Mass and then took her to see her pal Joe, who is 95. Did I mention my mother-in-law is 99?

Joe is shown here in an earlier blip with Joe.

Our friend , Georgine, came over and we had a really nice chat.

Kasia , of course, added laughs.

In all we are blessed.

In the Meanwhile….

I have cleared my back deck of blooms, in anticipation of whatever comes north from Florence. I just hate to waste pretty blossoms to torrents of rain.

The rest of my deck resembles a spinach or romaine patch. Granted, summer is still here for another ten days, but the overcast weather, drizzle and rain lets you know fall is on its’ way.

My mother-in-law and sister-in-law are due down here for a visit. I am hoping the weather holds and an enjoyable time is had for all.
