December 31, 1997 through January 2, 1998

Saturday, November 17, 2012

Wednesday we bought stuff to take to the New Years' Eve party and went to the party. It started at 7, Ace went home at 10, and I lasted until 10:30. I noticed that only about 1/3 of the original crowd was there, and I was tired. Annie hung in there, starting with two bottles of wine. Fortunately another woman helped her with about 3/4 of a bottle, because she wasn't moving very fast the next morning. We originally had intended to have breakfast at a nice little restaurant on Corkill and Dillon, but I went over at noon and borrowed a menu. After I called in our order, I picked everything up and we had take-out. Somewhere along in there we spent quite a while visiting consignment shops, Barnes and Noble, and TJ Maxx again. Friday Annie took off for Yakima, and made it to Weed, CA before she quit. She went 720 miles the first day, starting at 10:30 AM. It was lucky she did, because the last 500 miles took almost three hours longer than she expected because of the snow. The last 70 miles took 2.5 hours, and there were lots of cars in the ditch. In Yakima, there was ice under the snow and an idiot cut in front of her at a light 1/2 mile from home - Annie couldn't stop and turned left into a parking lot.

No damage.

    That was one long trip. I have trouble even thinking about long road trips like that anymore. Let me fly. thank you. Glad it was a story that ended well.

Busy Days

Friday, November 16, 2012

Wednesday I rented a rug doctor and upholstery attachment and bought all the chemicals for both floors and upholstery. Then I did the carpets (in four hours) and the BW did the recliners (in about an hour). When we hired it done it was all done in a little over an hour, but there were two guys and a big truck (no dumping and refilling every time you turn around). The problem with the rug doctor is that it's set up for a midget to run it - if I stand up the handle is about 8 inches below my hands, so my back was a big loser, even with a back brace. I was miserable after about a half hour and tried the brace, then later moved it higher - the way to make the pain go away.

Yesterday I saw Dr. Meyers for another skin cancer on the back of my right ear. With the first five Mohs' surgeries I was OK after the first pass, but this time he had to go back the second time and take out some more cartilage because there were tendrils sticking out of the bottom of the cut. I did pass the second try, and there were two other guys there who had a repeat procedure too, which was the first time I had seen anyone go around twice.

After the second try, there was one more numbing and cutting because he did a skin graft, which involved taking a piece of skin from my cheek in front of the ear, sewing that shut, and then trimming and sewing the skin onto the back of the ear. Dr. Meyers explained that about 25 per cent of his patients had an infection when he didn't graft some skin over the incision, which was fairly large. He said nobody died, but the infections were trouble.

I left home at 8:00AM, got there at 8:30, left at 4:30, and turned off of US19 at Alderman. As I was moving into the left turn lane for Belcher, the siren came on, and a Deputy stopped me for going 47 in a 30 MPH zone. After 12 miles on 19 at 55 to 60, I wasn't paying attention to how fast I was going, but I did notice on Belcher a speed limit sign for 45 MPH, which is confusing because both streets are divided four lane boulevards. The only thing I can think is the Belcher is north and sough, and Alderman is an east and west street. I'm going to be looking for speed limit signs on Alderman.

The good news is I didn't get a $252 ticket, which would have capped the day, but now have a written warning on my desk, which will remind me to slow down. My ear is taped up so it sticks out a lot and is a lot lower than my left hear. I hope it doesn't take a set while it's wrapped up for a week.

    Skin cancers can be a terrible nuisance, but I'm glad that they can actually DO something about most of them...

Hope you recover completely very, very soon.

    It was a good thing you did the carpets and upholstery before the surgery. It's all done and now you can relax and recuperate. Best of luck with that.

    Sounds like you have had a time of it.
Just so you know those cameras work great too. Bill found out the hard way. He got a large ticket in the mail.Not only did they have a photo of him going thru light just as it turned red they had the video on web site for him to see too.. I laughed but he didn't think it was as funny as I did. But he admitted the video showed there was no doubt.
