Good morning. Today will be another wonderfully warm day, but we are expecting a bit of rain. I suppose though, that a bit of rain might be nice for our reservoirs and our yards. I'm not planning on going out today anyway, so no biggie.
I had a doctor appointment yesterday to see if he would give me something to help clear up this cold or bug or whatever it is that I have. As expected, he said just go home and use your nose sprays. That'll clear it all up. Really??????? I told him okay, but that I may have to come back next week for something that will really clear it all up.
I did ask him to send a prescription to the oxygen company for me to have a portable Inogen concentrator. He did, and the company called me later in the day. Medicare won't cover it. Last year, the oxygen reading for "okay" was 96. It has since been changed to 90. Folks, at 92, a person is not breathing very easily. Yesterday my oxygen was reading 92 sitting down.
Today my oxygen is much better, but it bothers me that Medicare does not take better care of us old folks. We're the ones who paid into the system our whole lives. It's sad if us old folks have to take out bank loans to pay for medical equipment that we might need. Nuff said.
I found this absolutely adorable cartoon on the web and had to borrow it to share here. For years, I've been wondering why men shouldn't also be mandated to have precious parts of their bodies slammed by this medical marvel machine. If they did, we'd have new technology rather quickly.
While I was out yesterday, I stopped by a couple of stores to see if I could find the yarns that I am wanting for my afghans. I did not have much luck. It's the same answer everywhere when you ask the clerk why the inventory is not very good. "We only have what the main office sends us. We don't get to order what we need or want." Does this make sense? How can someone in the mid-west know what someone on the east coast might need for yarns? This could be another rant, but I'm not going to go there.
Today I will call around different stores to see who has a decent yarn inventory, and then maybe one day I can make a trip to wherever that may be. I was hoping to have these afghans done for next Christmas but that not might happen if I can't find the yarn I want. Oh dear, such a problem!!
Well, today is Wednesday, and I have another quick page for you. This one is a bit whimsical. Have fun with it.
Here is your download link:
That's about all the news for this morning. Now I must go to the kitchen and make some breakfast and a cup of coffee. So, till tomorrow, Y'all have a wonderful day.
Hugs, Edna B.
