Big Story...

Well of course it’s Dorien.  The weather idiots are in ultra high dither.  Rain, winds… roof damage… Yeah our roof already leaks and they are coming Monday to replace it.  That’s just a little late.  Hopefully the winds will be kind.  On the other hand if the storm damage is sufficient maybe I can get my insurance company to chip in on the new roof.

I had my blood drawn for the semi-annual wellness check. That’s the one where my doctor asks me to remember the same three words she has used for the past three years. "Ball. penny. house" And she'll ask me to stand up and walk across the room without falling down…  Then she will express concern about my sky-rocketing a1C numbers.  I did go no carbs for about 10 days prior to the test but I know full well the test measures blood sugar level over the past 3-6 months.  I do love my cookies, and especially pastry… On the bright side I lost 6 pounds but that is at risk now that the pantry is open for another 6 months.

Now that the health scare for the dogs is past, Ginger has been put on the market.  We have two families interested.  She has sort of become a fixture so we have mixed feelings.  

Apparently the blood culture needed for clearing me of the brucellosis requires a special lab so the testing I had done this morning doesn’t include the test.  That’s a pain.  I’m quire sure I am clear but I was to be the test subject for the several folks who handled Hope so I guess I need to go get it done.

Jackson is scheduled to graduate Sub School on the 27th of September.  I guess he gets his “SS” designator at that time.  A non-qual but a submariner none the less.

Climate change is new campaign issue for the dems.  It’s quite a song they sing… their solutions involve divorce from carbon based energy to the tune from anywhere to 2 trillion to 20 trillion bucks depending on whose “plan” you read.

I  was horrified by the loss of life on the diving boat in california.  I cannot imagine the terror of flames and no escape. I am surprised by the lack of response among the news interpreters.  What an opportunity to condemn the lack of background checks that clearly led to this disaster.  And without doubt the crew members who survived by jumping overboard were white nationalists and climate change deniers… 

Better quit now as I see my discourse is starting to degenerate…

Oh one cartoon …
