Re-reading yesterdays blog – I see where I never defined the title…… ”…and they do this for fun ?”…… was in reference to the fact that there are apparently some people that get out and walk ”for the fun” of it……. you have got to be kidding me…. and don’t even get me started on those folks that RUN those kind of distances….. let alone marathons… (yes Mouse – that includes you) 😉 ‘In my mind’ ain’t nobody in their right mind puts their body through that mess for the fun of it….. [now climbing down off of my soap box] ……..
Up at a presentable hour and a nice easy start to our day. I had a Doctor’s appointment mid-island at 10:20, so I took it easy until time to go. I printed out my handy dandy spread sheet where I track my BP and I was gone. Fighting ‘classic’ island traffic ( a 25 minute drive that takes 45 minutes) and arrived a couple of minutes before my scheduled time…….. very uncharacteristically – I only had to wait about 15 minutes before being called in. Got to chat with a dear friend [Stormy] who recently transferred to this facility for a bit before ‘Doc’ came in. Understand….. ‘Doc’ is not an actual ”Doctor” – but a FNP…. Family Nurse Practitioner….. but I’ll tell you – I trust and have more faith in her than I ever did my ‘regular doctor’ back in the states…… built like a fire plug and just plumb enjoyable to talk with. My appointment went great…. and to quote her….. she was ”tickled to death” with my blood work up…….. she is very happy with my BP and what I am doing trying to get myself in a little better shape…… I need to quit smoking and cut WAY down on the alcohol…. but as a medical professional she is ‘required‘ to say that – she knows it probably ain’t gonna happen 😉 So – I’m pretty happy with that visit and she don’t want to see me now for another 3 months~!!
Came back home, my Queen was at the local grocery store helping to majorly stimulate the economy – so I set in mowing and weed eating. I finished up just about the time she pulled in back here at the house, so I unloaded half the store into the kitchen for her. Everything put away (groceries, lawn mowers and weed eaters) and we settled in for drinks enjoying a fairly productive day for us both.
Spent some time chatting with family back in the states…. discussing the good and not so good things going on……. more on that as it develops. JUST confirmed some diving for tomorrow morning….. YAY~!!!!! It’s been 2 weeks since I’ve dove and I am in serious need of some ‘salt therapy‘….. plus I get to play with my camera and get you all some underwater pictures for a change~!!
Good Night Ya’ll * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * Thankx for stopping in~!
