Good Morning,  !
Today is Thursday, January 16.

The "consultation" about cataract surgery was mostly 
sitting around various waiting rooms, occasionally 
interrupted by brusque recent imports mumbling impatient
instructions and briefly doing some tests. They seemed 
to be paid by the number of patients they can hustle 
through per day. 

It took about three hours and included probably almost 
ten minutes of actual staff time.
In the meantime Barb, who was driving me there and back,
was fuming about the lack of nearby parking and the cost
per minute of parking. Eventually i was told that there 
was a six month waiting list, and that my turn would come
in July.

We did finally get out of there, me with two sets of not
very cool shades on, and headed for Dennys, Barb's treat 
for the driving. Barb is a friend and neighbor and the 
owner of Copper, the dog I walk with in the evening.

We got a fairly good medical system, about as good as the 
US is hoping to get in twenty years, after all the bugs 
have been fixed, but even with the bugs fixed, a Government
system with no competition is much more annoying than
a Free Enterprise system with competition.

The drops they put into my eyes for the convenience of 
their staff are slowly wearing off, but vision is nowhere
near normal. Expect the odd typo and irregularity!

Have FUN!

>from Lisa: Fresh out of high school, I found a job cleaning the elegant home of an older couple. Among other duties, I had to dust their many imported carvings and petrified collectibles as well as pick up after their pets. One day I was astonished to find two ivory fossils lying on the floor beside the bookcase. I quickly picked them up and put them back on the shelf. The next week the same thing happened. That afternoon my employer came into the parlor, her faithful canine behind her. Looking around, she eyed the bookcase. "Tricky," she asked the dog, "how in the world do you keep getting your bones up there?"

Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Sturdy Kitty Litter Scoop If you have cats, go to a restaurant supply store and buy a metal mess scoop that is used to remove items from the deep fryer. Use this as your kitty litter scoop. It will never break, bend, or fail you in any way. By Brenda Check out ThriftyFun's Blog
In the days when you couldn't count on a public facility to have indoor plumbing, an English woman was planning a trip to Germany. She was registered to stay in a small guest house owned by the local schoolmaster. She was concerned as to whether the guest house contained a WC. In England, a bathroom is commonly called a WC which stands for water closet. She wrote the schoolmaster inquiring into the location of the nearest WC. The school master, not fluent in English, asked the local priest if he knew the meaning of WC. Together they pondered possible meanings of the letters and concluded that the lady wanted to know if there was a "Wayside Chapel" near the house . . . a bathroom never entered their minds. So the schoolmaster wrote the following reply: Dear Madam, I ta! ke great pleasure in informing you that the WC is located 9 miles from the house. It is located in the middle of a grove of pine trees, surrounded by lovely grounds. It is capable of holding 229 people and is open on Sundays and Thursdays. As there are many people expected in the summer months, I suggest you arrive early. There is, however, plenty of standing room. This is an unfortunate situation especially if you are in the habit of going regularly. It may be of some interest to you that my daughter was married in the WC as it was there that! she met her husband. It was a wonderful event. There were 10 people in every seat. It was wonderful to see the expressions on their faces. My wife, sadly, has been ill and unable to go recently. It has been almost a year since she went last, which pains her greatly. You will be pleased to know that many people bring their lunch and make a day of it. Others prefer to wait till the last minute and arrive just in time! I would recommend your ladyship plan to go on a Thursday as there is an organ accomp! animent. The acoustics are excellent and even the most delicate sounds can be heard everywhere. The newest addition is a bell which rings every time a person enters. We are holding a bazaar to provide plush seats for all since many feel it is long needed. I look forward to escorting you there myself and seating you in a place where you can be seen by all. With deepest regards, The Schoolmaster

How can you easily determine how much dirt there is in an oblong hole three feet deep at one end and two feet deep at the other end, and four feet wide at one end and two feet wide at the other end? *
Thanks to Tim for this one: My wife and I went to a "Dude Ranch" while in Texas. The cowboy preparing the horses asked if she wanted a Western or English saddle, and she asked what the difference was. He told her one had a horn and other one didn't, she replied, "The one without the horn is fine. I don't expect we'll run into too much traffic out here." --------------- * There is no dirt in a hole
