Thursday This n That

The worst part about working on a truck farm was picking the jalapenos.  Every tiny papercut, every hangnail, every little scrape burned like the dickens.  And for godsakes, don't rub your eyes!

Yeah, I've had a lot of different jobs throughout my lengthy employment history. Picking vegetables, mucking stalls, executive secretary to the president of a multi-state private school corporation.  I'm a jack of all trades.  LOL

Gimpy buck seems to be like 95% now.  I think the problem was he had an abscess on his leg which was making it all swollen and gross and hurty, but then it burst, so now he's on the mend.  Lucky buck.

Yeah, I watch a lot of vet shows.  I love Dr. Pol.  He's my kind of guy.

If a veterinarian can diagnose and treat a wide variety of species for a wide variety of ailments, why can't doctors treat one species for a variety of ailments? Jus' sayin'.

The other day I gazed at the weather forecast and noted that Wednesday was supposed to be craptastic.  I had a doctor's appt on Wednesday.  (Okay, it's really a nurse's appt.  I don't see the doctor very often.)  I called to get it moved to later in the week and they told me my appt actually wasn't until next Wednesday.  But I'm sitting here staring at the card they wrote out for me that says 2/5/20.  (Okay, it really says 2/5/19, but it was written in November, so the year thing was an easy mistake.)  Neither of us was sure how that happened, but we did get my appt moved to tomorrow. 

I'm doing pretty good at remembering to write 20 in the date instead of 19.  I've only screwed up once and then I only got the 1 out before I remembered and changed it to a 2. 

And that's all I've got for you today.  What have you got for me?


  1. Yeah...jalepenos can be dangerous. Yay for the buck. General practitioners/family practitioners of which there are very few these days. Yay for getting your appointment figured out.

    It snowed a $h!+-load Tuesday night and yesterday. We ended up with about 6 inches. The official measurement at the airport was 4.6. Today it's freaking frigid and I've got to figure out how to de-ice the back patio before the dogs injure themselves. I don't want to use chemical/salt stuffs because...doggy paws. 🤔

    I have a new obsession: To Catch a Smuggler on National Geo channel. It chronicles CBP and HSI agents at 3 major US airports. Fascinating.

    Drew Carey of The Price is Right, comedian, and Who's Line Is It can sing. I mean REALLY sing. He was unmasked last night on The Masked Singer, which surprised me. Just based on his voice, I though he would have gone deeper in the competition.

    I need to put on sunglasses every time I look up and out my office window. Bright blue skies and sunshine reflecting off all that snow is way to bright for my sleep-deprived eyes.

    There's really not much else going on around here. I have every intention of working today. Of course, it's 9:30 and I'm still wending my way through emails, blogs, and what-not. But I'm going to work. Or take a nap. We'll see.

    Have a good one! And stay warm.

  2. Woohoo! I woke up to nearly 2" of snow! That's plenty for me, thank you, and now at 10 am, it's mostly gone.

    The date mistake on that card is kinda weird, unless she was looking at last year's calendar.

    Six weeks of antibiotics, and Churchill's abscess still hasn't healed up. But fur has grown back around it, and he acts normal, so I'm trying not to worry. Heck, he's a few months short of 20, so there's no point in worrying. I just do my best to spoil him. :-)
