Just an observation...

People in the service business are so blown away by the constant barrage of nasty, growling, yelling customers that it seems all you have to do is smile, say "please" and "thank you" and "have a good day" and you are instantly a rock star or some very welcome, alien creature from another planet. Sad, sad, sad.

I need some advice on my cat.

Last night we discovered that my 15 year old cat had an open wound on her shoulder. We thought it might be an animal bite (she an outside cat, a rescue) but it also looks like it may be a cyst that broke. It doesn't seem to be bleeding. The cat is cleaning it and doesn't seem to be in any pain.

She was in and out of bed with me last night and was purring. We can't find her today. We have been careful about doors so I don't think she got out. We have checked all over the house and can't find her. The plan was to take her to the vet first thing tomorrow morning.

It is not unusual for her to retreat to the basement when people are here besides me, and my son and 8 year old granddaughter were here yesterday and last night, so I'm not surprised that she hid, but she should be back in circulation by now since they have left.

Any thoughts?

I'm boostered! Got my third shot yesterday. No reaction at all. It's

like I never got the shot. That's a good sign, isn't it?

is "House MD" a good show?

Covid Shot and Fle Shot Together - Info from my Doctor

I recently emailed my Doc to ask if it was ok for me to get the Covid Booster and Flu shot together. The answer I got was that other vaccines should not be taken within 14 days of the Covid shot. This was news to me and not what I have heard elsewhere, so I thought I should pass the information on. Doctors may differ on this so you should check with your own.

Poster #7 below is worth reading because he/she points out that my Doc's advice is different from the CDC and others.

Teasing a dog

Food for thought:


I have a Veterinerian question.

My pup needs an operation for a torn ACL. In making arrangements with the Vet's staff today, they told me that the pup will have to stay overnight, but they also told me that there won't be any staff there overnight. They said that the pup will be pretty drugged up and that they had never had any problems with this. Is this normal? I'm worried. Should I be?

I wonder if people who don't believe in God are more likely to

be afraid of dying than people who do. Thoughts?

Grendel's Den and Texas Abortion Law

Old Massachusetts case may hold the key:


The next step: They will begin questioning Texas women in airports and bus terminals.

Where are you going? Why? Who are you visiting? And on and on.

I was thinking this morning that we could set up an "adopt a Texan" movement where, if a woman needed to leave Texas in order to obtain an abortion, she could be sponsored by a person or family in the other state. Then, I started thinking about what Texas might do to stop that. Nothing would surprise me. This country has been on a slippery slope and it's picking up speed and heading for the bottom.

Now I'll sit back and wait for someone to tell me how negative I am.
