Thursday I have to get up at 5:00 in the morning, do the chores, then come back in and get cleaned up. After that I leave for a town about an hour and a half from here. It has all the specialist doctors and I have a routine medical appointment for some tests. I'll be back Thursday evening, then repeat the whole sequence on Friday. Normally I would just stay over there in a motel and save myself some driving, but with the wife still up North I have to come back to take care of all the animals.
When you get old you spend a whole lot more time waiting in doctor's offices than you'd like to.
In lieu of a regular posting I thought I would put this cartoon up. It resonates with someone from the mountains.
