The VA gave me an excuse and an offer. The excuse: last summer 2 Optometrists quit at the Cumberland Valley facility and they chose not to replace them thinking patients would move to Civilian Providers. The offer: to start the paperwork letting me move to a Civilian Provider while allowing me to keep my VA pricing benefit. I said: Start the Paperwork. This is evidently what they wanted to happen, however they failed in their promulgation of this information to Veterans. My PCP hasn't changed, just the eye work.
A Big Thanks!! to my Readers for giving my books Good Reviews. I haven't figured out how to shoot off fireworks around photos yet on the new version of Blogger so words will have to do for now.
I have the Central Air on because the humidity is already wretchedly high.
Last evening I spent some time with Nick Baker learning about the forests of Scotland.
The setting for Dun Adair is important. At first I thought of locating the castle in the Upland Oakwoods. I found something about the Pedunculate Oak intriguing. In the end, I chose the Wet Woodlands since they surround Lochs. Now my characters will be moving beneath Alder, Downy Birch, and Willow trees, and... of course, in the Wet Woodlands there is... fog.
By now everybody's read, or heard what Mad Dog Mattis has to say about the Idiot Jerk in the White House. That shrieking sound you might be hearing is every molecule of air rushing out of Republican lungs at a high rate of speed. I liked the bit where he said this president is using Nazi tactics to divide America. Can you hear those Republican screams? They're growing louder daily. Wisely, Mattis did not specifically call him a Nazi. That would be an instant failure since no one can be as bad as Hitler. He did, however, use the term Nazi Tactics. This administration has just lurched into a death spiral. The stampede will begin shortly.
Oh, I do know how unbearable humidity can be. 😏ReplyDelete
It's not too bad as long as you can run around naked.Delete
"Nazi tactics" is entirely appropriate.ReplyDelete
I'm afraid of what the death spiral is going to look like. At the rate we're going this country is going to be in an all-out civil war by the time election day comes.
Sorry, no Civil War. Republican Senators up for re-election are realizing that tethering themselves to the Idiot Jerk will end their political careers.Delete
Well, Cheetoliini has never hidden his white supremacy leanings, so.... Mattis is right. We all knew that. The base, nevertheless, is another story.ReplyDelete
And so glad your books are getting good reviews! Yay!
I am still using the 'old' format of blogger cause the new one does not let me embed some things. Technology!
Unfortunately for the Idiot Jerk, his base is peeling away. States his minions thought safe are starting to suck up Republican ad dollars meant for other states.Delete
I love that Mad Dog Mattis WAS the best person for the job ... "I hire only the best people." and now he's the worst of the worst.ReplyDelete
As anger continues to rise against the idiot Jerk, I'm wondering if he's even going to make it to November.Delete
Boy I hope all goes well with your VA.ReplyDelete
We had hellish storms here yesterday...over 80 trees were downed, many roads closed, and we just got power back as I type this from yesterday at 1130.
I had on radio late last night and heard about Mattis. They all said wait till morning...with the tweets and rants. More excuses. You hired him you damn ass.
Today saw a rebroadcast of Anderson last night talking about trump's BumblingBottleBlonde mouth piece, comparing him to Churchill. Andy explained how she was once a CNN reporter but was confused by the compassion and listed about 20 differences between them. That's our Andy...politely calling her a fucking twit.
I love him.
We're supposed to have storms tonight. Republican Senators don't know what to do, if they stick with him they lose, if they go against him, he attacks them... what's worse.Delete
Let's hope so, the fools who sided with him for the republican cause should be regretting it by now!ReplyDelete
I don't know if they have regrets, but I would say many of them are scared shitless.Delete
we just got our power/phone/internet back at 7:30p tonight. it had been out since 12 noon wednesday. a tree came down across the street and took the lines with it. we think we had a mini tornado round here.ReplyDelete
Pain in the ass, ain't it! Hope you had enough ice on hand to keep the cocktails cool until the power came back on.Delete
