The last week of April was pretty busy with appointments and our monthly trip to Uvalde. This time we only had a 3 hour 55 minute wait. Heard the receptionist call a patient to tell her to come down as the doctor would see her next. Of course, that only works if you live in town.
Sitting there for long stretches of time you can not help but listen to the conversations around you. Folks, believe it or not I always come out of it feeling better because there is always someone worst off than you or your loved one.
There was this tall, nice looking gentlemen probably in his early 60's, he had this gray hair long pony tail look going for him and filled out his jeans very well :) You would have never guessed he was sick by looking at him. He had to take care of both his parents because his two siblings were too busy to help out yet they were not too busy to go on vacations overseas.
His parents passed away within two months of each other so he was finally able to look after his own health issues. He had a kidney removed in the past only to find out he now has cancer in the other one, he needs hip replacement on both hips and other stuff that I don't even recall...yep, things could always be worst :(
Was finally able to stop at the Derksen building lot. Noticed that prices have taken a considerable hike. It is a good thing I always take a picture of the building and the price. At this rate I am probably better off giving everything away...easier said than done!
There is a new Derksen building lot in Del Rio. Noticed it back in March, it is in the east part of town next to some storage units. Was going to stop for a quick look but the grass was too high and you know what lurks in high grass!
Anyone watch the Mayweather vs Pacquiao fight? What a rip off! I am so glad I watched it for free...definitively not worth the $100.00 price tag.
Good night. May you all have Terlingua Dreams.
Even though we are no longer in the playoffs, I am very proud of OUR Spurs and all the thrilling as well as nail biting moments they gave their fans up to the last second of this season...literally...the last second!
On one of the local San Antonio stations Ursula Perry turns to the other anchor person and says "I do not know who am suppose to root for now...do I root for the Rockets?" The anchorman (I think his name is Steve) calmly looks at her and says "No"....jajajajajaja, that was priceless!
OK, Rocket fans don't get all out of sorts now :D
While the Spurs are no longer in contention, I still love the game of basketball. I will continue to watch the playoffs as I root for the underdog and/or for the opponents of those teams that I dislike.
