Thursday Thoughts

A lot has been going on here. I'm happy to report that Michelle is doing very well and working hard to get things back on track and I have no doubt that with the determination she has, all will be fine. I teased her that her debacle merited The National Enquirer and she laughed and said she'd talk to them for a couple million bucks -- but not a cent less!

* Dr. Maria's nurse called and told me to call the neurologist -- the newest member of The Legion (the burgeoning cast that oversees my health problems) -- and make an appointment so I did and the soonest I can see him/her is September. Grrrr I'm not certain why she decided that was in order so I'll just take the same list I took to her. I need to call Dr. Maria today, too -- the drops didn't work so I'm guessing there's an Ear, Nose & Throat doc in my future. Sigh. I have to schedule my annual bone scan because I'm the poster child for osteoporosis and since there's a little in one hip, we have to watch it and I take mega-doses of calcium and vitamin D.

* Carl Bernstein (remember him from the Watergate scandal?) has an excellent perspective on Rupert Murdoch's recent woes and y'all can read it here. One can only hope that by the time it's all over, it will bring down Fox News! There was something I heard/read elsewhere that indicated that criminal charges against Murdoch in the U.S. may be in order.

* I'm so glad y'all (mostly, anyway) liked Bernie and Bill. The two of them make a lot of sense. (Note: if you want to argue, please at least be respectful.) And Nance, Bernie's almost 70 so I doubt if he's considering a run for The White House.

* Good news from Wisconsin: Their recall elections worked and all the GOP candidates who supported Gov. Walker's "union-busting" lost as did the "fake Democrats" that they put on the ballot. Y'all can read more here.

I am trying to get caught up on visiting y'all. I made a dent yesterday and hopefully, I won't be interrupted too much today.

Hope y'all are having a great day!!!!

Happy Blogging!!!!!!!!!!!



  1. Wow! That's great news about Wisconsin. See that's what I get for ignoring the news--there is occasionally good news.
    I hope your health issues get worked out soon. I guess there is some stuff we are simply stuck with as we age, which sucks.
    I wanted to let you know, I've changed my blog and am now writing from Blue Skies, Sunny Days at
    I'd love to see you there.

  2. Ouch, another doc. Hope all turns out well, will keep postive thoughts going your way.

    Ah, never thought of Bernie being prez but he would make a good one. I can't remember how old Reagen was (did I spell that right? looks wierd to me, oh well you know who I mean,lol) To me his age is just right, I think he should run :)

    take care
