I did my laundry yesterday and made a big pot of soup again today - the same sort as last time except black beans, half of a large cabbage instead of a bunch of celery, and no mushrooms. That way the BW can eat the stuff because there's nothing... Read more

If They Billed Like Medicare Pays, I Wouldn't Need It

Monday, September 19, 2011      4 comments

The mail brought a few Summary Notices today, because I recently had a bunch of tests done. They prove to me once more that we wouldn’t need insurance if the medical providers billed the same as the insurance pays. I have Medicare, and Mail Ha... Read more

1/14/93 Thursday Picked up the trailer ($505) and headed south with a dry snow drifting across I-65, looking like white sand in a stiff breeze in the desert. Really glad to be going. At first rest area lug nuts still hot. Four hours la... Read more

Today is the BW's day to eat out - she says. After a noon doctor visit, she wants to visit either Kally K's or Iris's Grill, or maybe Ivory. She had a birthday, and we had a 54th anniversary, which is really a long time to be married to the sa... Read more
