While Monday was fun picking up the dogs, today is not a fun day.
I see my GP (doctor) twice a year to have blood test for the A1C - something diabetics do on a regular occasion. Today is the day.
He talks. He prods. He pokes. He uses a rubber glove (once a year only). We chat. I have blood drawn. I really like this doctor. He is above par. First of all I believe he could have been a concert pianist or some degree. His brother was a band director in the HEB area and now teaches trumpet on the side at SMU (he retired & does this now). He talks softly and intelligently.
I am really not one to cultivate friends. Somehow, it never seems to work out. I don't make enemies - not that - and sure, I have friends - some very good ones - but I am awkward when it comes to social settings such as inviting people over for dinner or going out with another couple. We have done this with one local couple. But, I am really not good at it. I want to be.
I believe the good doctor would be someone who would be good to socialize with; but, there is the problem of socialization with someone who knows you - and I really do mean the word "Know."
So I move on. Time to get ready for the prods and the pokes ....
While I am here, I would like to mention that my previous next door neighbor, Lelanie Petty, has just been diagnosed with a stage 2 to 4 brain tumor. She is also our insurance agent. This whole thing just makes me mad. Lelanie is holed up at Baylor hospital (Dallas) waiting test results. They cut open her head yesterday and removed a fist-size tumor. Why do bad things have to happen to good people? Makes me mad.
A "STONE" is a family word for a personal story or thought, not quite an essay or short story. We moved to central Texas to be near a daughter. We are down to only one wirehair dachshund - Sadie. (Goodbye in 2021 to Oscar the ball boy and Bruno the larger twin) & my wife -- penned by a retired Texas H.S. band director - just nonsense thoughts unrelated to each other or anything other than what's happening and comments.
