Yeah, it really shouldn't be possible with all that olive oil! I guess it must have a curative effect because so far, so good. Nothing like a nice, warm muffaletta for comfort food. Heavy as a brick.

Over the weekend, planted seeds in the little starter "pots", DBF and I relocated our raised bed boxes (to fit better in the sunshine spots in the yard) and built the PVC "cage" for the deer/critter/greenhouse we designed on a diner placemat

Hee hee! Well, I don't feel very nice and charming (especially the past few days) but thanks for the compliment.

But then, I always wish to please my friends. Maybe the avatar below would be better. I'm considering it.

I planted kohlrabi and a few red cabbage plants. Seeded some red Italian onions and mesclun mix for salads. Weeded my veg. beds some more. I'm going to have to see if my tractor will start soon - the grass is doing its April 1st leap. Spring is here and I have constant dirt under my fingernails.

Sometimes a day can be a very good one. I got the results from my MRI today. It is clear.

(nothin' in my head, but I think we all kinda figured that )

I want to thank everyone for the good wishes, concern and prayers from the public forum and through PMs. Y'all have no idea how much your support means to me.

When I first heard of your visit to the ENT it reminded me of the thing that happens to guys shortly after marriage. A membrane grows over the inner ear blocking out 99% of what DW is saying, but it does let key phrases through such as "dinner is ready", and "are you listening to me?"

So pleased to hear about your results today

I took my dog to the vet for his 2nd Lyme disease shot (preventative).
His prior blood tests showed his protein levels were low. The vet had called me and wanted me to provide a sample of his urine. NOT!!!
I told her today that I would change him over to a higher protein dry dog food, so let's skip the urine test. She pressed me a bit more, but I told her I spent half my tax return (a litle white lie ) on his shots and blood w*rk last time, plus I had the second dog's shots coming up in May.
The combined cost of both rounds of annual shots means I ran out of money allotted to my dog care budget. Then I smiled.
The look on her face was priceless.

Reason #6 for not owning a dog

I used to have a great situation for over 10 years where our next door neighbor and good friend had a wonderful dog that I used to enjoy playing with, and also take for walks every day, and then hand back. She was well trained and the walks were short enough that I never had to worry about scooping poop

The only reason I agreed to the original blood test was because he is on a daily dose of Potassium Bromide to prevent seizures. The dosing level needs to be checked once a year. Otherwise, fuggedaboudit.

Just returned from my first infusion of a new (to me) chemotherapy drug. I hope that I don't react as badly as I did to the last one. One of the side effects of this drug is that it turns the whites of your eyes blue. I am looking forward to telling everyone that I am from Dune.

Let's see. It's Wednesday. I weighed myself, made coffee, surfed, went to Chinese. At least I'm consistently lazy on Hump Day.
Full stomach, cloudy day...if I pick up a magazine and park myself in the leather recliner, it will deteriorate into unintentional nap time for sure.
Oh well....
