It rained most of the afternoon and evening yesterday. Not a heavy rain and it didn't storm, but rather a light drizzle that soaked in almost immediately. That is exactly what we needed here. A heavy rain storm would have just run off quickly and most of the rain would end up in the swamp/pond. This way, it finally cut the dust and cooled things down a little. It is only 69 out there as I write this. The other good thing is that I got a good nights sleep and actually slept in this morning until my youngest dog decided she needed to go out. The male always gets up just before it gets light and I let him out in the other part of the house and go back to bed. I hope you all feel as good as I do this morning. Hope it lasts (grin).
Don't you hate it now that lawyers have gotten involved in the medical profession? When I was young, if you wanted something done and had the money, you got it done. No fuss, no problem. Way back then I even had my tonsils out in a doctor's office and went directly home. The Doc just used straight ether to put me under by dripping it out of a bottle onto a wire mesh wrapped with gauze. That was the worst part. I remember seeing pinwheels and flashing spinning lights and a loud buzz in my head. In my mind, I was about to scream, "I can't stand it anymore" and I popped awake. It seemed to me that I was only out a few seconds. Now you would have to have all sorts of tests to make sure you will survive the procedure. My wife is going to have a simple out-patient procedure and she had to jump through hoops going to different places for different tests and get signed off by all involved. Dang, I hate the newer system. You can't just sign a statement saying you will not sue them. OK, now that I got my blood pressure back up I better stop on this subject and head out to the flea market. You all have a great day now, you hear, and hope you can avoid doctors.
