The other day I was in our local WalPuke Neighborhood Mart, walking from the back of the store to the front. Why are the things I want always in the back? Is this some diabolical plot to expose me to all the other products?
While walking, I got that feeling you get when someone is staring at you. To the right up ahead was a woman checking me out. ME! She looked to be in her thirties and was fairly attractive. As I approached her, I gave her a wide smile.
Then I thought, "Store detective."
Well, thank you Lord for even the few seconds of elation.
The only people interested in this body anymore are in the medical field.
This week went by so fast for me. I just feel like I did not get anything accomplished at all this week. I wanted to get out more to get pictures and I didn't get to do to much of that this week. I also had my last physical therapy yesterday with that I had to do different kinds of tests and passed all of it. I had a hard time coming up with some questions for you today but I did so here they are.
1) Do you ever do something you really do not want to do just to make someone else happy?
2) Do you watch any kind of sports on t.v. and what is it?
3) Do you think that the kids these days are to spoiled with all of the electronics's that are out now?
4) Do you ever wish that you did things different in your life?
I went to the lab a couple of days ago for blood work (and pee-work, and whatever else work). When it came time to draw blood, the technician asked, "Which arm do they usually use?" I said, "I think it's usually the right one, but I have shingles and it extends down my right arm almost to my elbow. I'm worried about tying off some of the shingles."
"OK," she said, "then we'll go with the left arm." She tried and tried to draw blood, but it wouldn't flow. The above pic is what my left arm looks like where she tried.
I said, "Go with the right arm. It'll be OK." And it was, as far as the tying off. The technician said, "Ah, now I see why they use this side."
She stuck in the needle and still no blood flowed into the hypodermic. She pushed it side to side and up and down. She said, "Doesn't this hurt?" And I said, "Yes."
Suddenly, blood started to flow through the hypodermic needle. She said, "Operator error. I didn't go deep enough."
I think she went through one vein and into another. Below is how my right arm looks.
"A man who barricaded himself in a house on Indianapolis' northeast
side, then later danced on the roof was taken into custody by police
"Officers with the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police
Department responded to a house on the 3500 block of Layman Avenue
around 10:30 a.m. for a barricaded subject.
"Police say a man,
later identified by authorities as Matthew Russ, 25, stole his
ex-girlfriend's keys from her house, took her car and crashed it into a
"Police say they found Russ in a chair in the driveway holding a knife. "He then went into the house and onto the roof
with the knife in his hand. An IMPD officer then fired rubber bullets at
him, and he retreated back into the house.
"Around 11 a.m., smoke was seen coming from the house, leading to the fire department being called to the scene. "Russ came back out as a detective tried to talk him off the roof. He threw his knife at the ground, but didn't leave the roof. "Russ
then began dancing on the roof with smoke and flames behind him. Police
went in the aerial ladder, tased him, then took him into custody at
around 11:40 a.m. "Police say the man is known to have anger issues. He was smiling as he was taken away on a gurney."
Finally back in Tucson. Didn't get to meet the president...he didn't really wander the exhibits or telescopes after his speech, but did meet the Mythbusters and a bunch of astronauts. If you know the White House grounds, my scope was setup up down by the fountain. Still in a bit of a daze and wondering did THAT really happen?
Hello, my marvelous mob! How are you? Today is supposed to be in the 70's weather-wise. But then the slide continues. I was talking with a neighbor and she said she'd been in the mountains of Vermont two days ago and it was s-wording. "Wash your mouth out with soap!" I exclaimed at her. I desire to remain in complete denial about winter. Winter? What's winter? I must admit that the leaves of the tree on the lot across the street are red on top of the tree and green on the bottom. I know "it's" coming. So is death, but I don't bray on about it. We'll get through it. We always do. What I find astonishing are old photos of winter. We can barely deal with it now. How did they do it?
Our outstanding and other-worldly Green Bay Packers checkmated the San Diego Chargers this Sunday past. Now they have a bye week. Sometimes I don't know if a bye week is good for a team or not. If your team has sustained a lot of injuries, I suppose it's good. But I worry about sustaining momentum with an extra week off.
The momentum must've stopped in the Irregular Football League because the standings remain the same after a week.
Mr. OrbsCorbs contacted me about his shingles in the hope of a cure or effective treatment. I gave him a bottle of Madame Zoltar's® Shingles Shoo-Away™. I haven't seen or heard from Mr. Corbs since. I hope that he realizes that the Shingles Shoo-Away is supposed to be applied topically and not drunk.
After seeing Mr. Corbs' sores, I've decided to get the shingles shot. Some immunity is better than none. I think I'm going to get the flu shot, too. I'll get all shot up.
Junior's been getting all excited about Halloween, but I think he might be a bit old to go out trick or treating. I think I've mentioned in the past that Junior is a bit on the heavy side. He doesn't need the candy and other goodies people will be handing out. Then again, I love chocolate. Maybe I'll accompany Junior. My "costume" is perfect: fortune teller.
No, no, no, I have to lose some weight, too. Señor Zanza eats whatever he wants, whenever he wants, and he stays rail thin. Don't you just hate people like that? It's like they're born with an immunity to fat. Bottle that stuff and become a millionaire. Meanwhile, the same old same old applies to weight loss: diet and exercise. I can't seem to control either. But I think I'm learning not to obsess about it so much. Some of it is a matter of learning to love who I am. I mean, they PhotoShop the pictures of the women on magazine covers to make them appear absurdly thin. No one really looks like that. Accept yourself and improve when and where you see fit.
I've tried reading news stories in an effort to make sense out of what is happening internationally. Forget it. They're nuts. There are way too many factions in way too many countries to figure them out. It just seems like it's war all of the time. Most of us in the West can lead "normal" lives. Where out troops are fighting, though, nothing is "normal" but death and destruction. Many of our opponents claim to be fighting a holy war. Did it ever occur to them that if God wanted something a certain way, it would be so? God doesn't need our help in killing, He needs our help in loving. It's so. so easy to destroy things, and so, so difficult to create them.
Finally, my dears, here's a little picture to make you smile:
Thank you for stopping by to read my blog today. I love readers. I love the Irregulars. I love having your company. Slow down, relax, take it easy.
"From the Wisconsin State Lottery- Jeff Jackson of Mount Pleasant
became a millionaire when he redeemed an Ultimate Millions scratch
ticket worth $1 million. Ultimate Millions was a $30 instant scratch
game available only in Wisconsin, which had three top prizes of $1
million. Jackson redeemed the last $1 million prize of the game. The
other two top prize winners were Judith Clark of Eau Claire and Karen
Perdue of Fort Atkinson.
"Jackson bought his ticket at Pick’n Save – 2820 South Green Bay Road in Racine. He will take home more than $673,000 after taxes. Pick’n Save earns 2% of the total prize as a retailer incentive, or $20,000. On Friday, October 16, the Wisconsin Lottery launched a new $30 instant scratch ticket, Classic Millions, which also offers three top prizes of $1 million each.
"The odds of winning the top prize in Ultimate Millions are 1:200,000"
"A state and federal investigation uncovered inconsistent staffing levels resulting in an unsafe environment for patients at Wheaton Franciscan Healthcare-All Saints inpatient mental health unit. "Acting on several complaints, surveyors from the State Division of Quality Assurance (DQA), and the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services
(CMMS) conducted an unannounced visit in May to the children and
adolescent unit, and adult inpatient mental health units at 1320
Wisconsin Avenue. "The investigation by DQA and CMMS uncovered instances of
uncontrollable adolescents being placed in the same unit as sex
offenders, a number of sexual assaults between patients, discriminatory
admission practices, and nurses being told by management to falsify
safety checks by saying the checks were conducted when they were not."
that shit near my armpit? That wraps around to my back. but there's no
one else here to take a back photo but me and Charlie. I tried a few
times and gave up. The shit follows neural pathways. If you touch it,
it hurts like hell. Wearing clothing is painful.
% of shingles sufferers suffer permanent nerve damage from the disease.
And it can reappear, in the same or different locations. I was told
today that triggers include a low immune system (not that I'm aware of)
and stress. Bingo! Stress is coming out of every orifice of my body.
If they could convert stress to electricity, I could probably light up a
we'll see how this progresses and take it from there. Hopefully I got
on the anti-viral soon enough. Whatever, once I'm healthy again, I
think I'll get the shingles shot if my insurance covers it. I heard
it's expensive. But if there's anything I can do to avoid a repeat of
this, I'm going for it.
I hear it can take a long, long time for shingles to heal. I don't know if I have that much time left.
