Mother's Friends / Pre-Registration / Turkey Legs

The medication finally allowed my mother to get a full eight hours of sleep.  The telephone started ringing early this morning, all from the doctor's office.  Had a lot of chores to do this morning before driving in to town, was about to jump in the shower when there was a  knock on the door.  When will mother's friends learn to call before they come...grrrrrrrrrr!!

Told the ladies that I was sorry but my mother was sick and asleep and gave them cards I had printed out with her phone number.  Used the excuse that gasoline prices were too high for them to drive all the way out here only for us not to be home or in this case for them not to be able to see her.  I would never show up at someones house unannounced unless it was an emergency.

Went to pick up the doctor's orders and then headed to the hospital to pre-register her for next week.  Made a stop at the recycling center, post office and the local bar-b-q place I frequent.   As I stood in line I saw this sign and could not help but smile...it reminded me of two bloggers which will go unnamed :D


This place is a hit or miss and today it was definitively a miss...the turkey legs were tough and dry.  Even the brisket, which is one of my favorites is never consistent.

Good night.  May you all have Terlingua Dreams.

  2. Hope the x-rays help the doc to pinpoint the problem - did he prescribe anti-inflamatories or only pain killers? Has he mentioned an MRI - it is wickedly expensive, but it does give an in depth view of the whole area.

    1. Dani since they do not know what is causing the back pain she is on pain killers for now.

      She is going to have a CT scan.

  5. Hope they can get your mom straightened out without surgery. I like the sign and that's one reason I gave up fishing years ago. That and having to buy license to do something that should be a right.

    1. Surgery would definitively not be a good thing.

      While I do not fish, I do agree with you that one should not have to buy a license.
