Teh Squeaky Wheel
‘Tis an O-grabbin’ Thursday, me lads an’ lassies!
Yesterday I coaxed BW out of the house to run some errands with me. She has only done one “ride along” since we went to the doctor. So I got her to go inside with me at the small farmer’s market and wander around a Dollar Tree store.
Side note-Ha- that Mika from morning Joe had a hardback book for sale for $1. That always cracks me up when I see stuff like that. It really upped the value of my $1 dust pan & dish cloths!
Back at home, I called the dentist to reschedule for BW and she said just come on in & we will take a look to see what’s going on. Well, of course Dr. Deekay’s “look” is never just with her eyes. So she took xrays & dug around for awhile. She repacked something & said to call Friday to determine the pain level & decide what to do next week. (Either finish the aborted root canal of last month or pull it). Then it was off to Walgreens to fill an antibiotics scrip for the if/when appt.
Our yard man came to mow & said he would take care of the dead trees for what I thought was a fair price & BW thought was too much (after he had gone). I hate it when that happens.
BW is just kinda fragile right now. She is better than she was a few weeks ago. But small stuff throws her. When Dr. Deekay waled into the room, she just bent over BW & hugged her & BW almost last it. She then hugged me for a long while, too. Her own Mother died this past year. She’s been my dentist for about 20 years, BW’s longer than that. Oh yeah, “Dr. Deekay” is her joke name for herself on her website & for her Halloween graveyard displays.
Today I have a long overdue eye exam with a new eye dr. (All my old ones seem to only last a year or so) Now I chose one that has been in practice for 30 years. He’ll probably retire or die on me!
Hope y’all have a Jerrific day & Happy Birthday to TeX!
Glad to hear that BW is getting out and about a little bit, Rabbit. It takes some time. Prayers to both of you.
Top o’ teh mornin’, GN!
Hai, RabBeet and Sven!
Mac’s thread pic made me chortle. (In-part because it works on a couple of levels, and I’m still amused by poot-related humor. Plus, Warthogs are pretty cool weapons.)
Appreciate you keeping us posted re how BW -- and you -- are doing. Your dentist’s nickname reminded me of the old Ipana toothpaste commercials. When I was three-years-old, I was middlin’ terrified of D.K. Germ. Dunno why; I simply was:
I especially remember this one:
(Maaaaan…it’s still amazing to me that so much old TV stuff survived and is available for naught online. Also glad that Mr. Germ no longer scares teh carp out of me.)
and numerous tips on how to be greener.
Had we gotten anything “special” from HR on that, I probably would have lost my sh!t (not that I don’t think they’re useless anyway).
As my co-worker would say, “We’ve been dealing with the asinine so much lately, it just makes my brain hot.”
Thank you for the continued Birfday wishes.
Which I neglected this morning; oooops!
Sure Happy It’s Thursday, Gerbil Nation!
Good morning, RabBiT, Sven, TeX, and Fatwa!
Happy birthday, Six of VII, TeX!
Here’s part of your cake, the rest will come later.
RabBiT -- I’m glad you and BW are healing. It takes time -- take as much as you need.
I got the results of my biopsies back -- neither spot is cancerous. Now I just continue on with Jerry’s Patented Blistering Creme for another couple of weeks.
Glad teh biopsies were negative.
(Excellent cake choice, too.)
This is kind of fun: silhouettes of fictitious characters from films and TV…and not all of them are human.
Per BroTimmeh: SWMNBN is now harassing teh Register Guradian reporter who covered her arrest.
Another nice job, Bro!
The Senate confirmed Loretta Lynch’s nomination; she’ll be even grievance-ier than Holder. (And she loves asset forfeiture, secret prosecutions and ignoring civil rights violations by police.)
Don’t forget that illegal aliens have just as much of a right to work as citizens.
On the plus side, she’ll only be around less than two years.
Good medical news, Paddy: happy for you.
