Politician or Podiatrist?

Last week we went back to the podiatrist for a follow up visit.  He asked me what ointment I had put on her feet...told him...the one you prescribed.  Turns out he never wrote it on her records.  He kept on giving me names and I told him I had no idea, so he asked me to call him when we got home so they could jot it down.

Then he asked me who cut mother's nails...WHT? He has been cutting her nails for three years...told him...you do!  One thing he did not forget was to remind us to vote for him.  I was so irritated at him that had I had my voter registration with me, I would have gone to early vote.  Del Rio deserves better, the last two podiatrists a husband/wife team left town in total secrecy and he is the only game in town.

Went to the post office only to find two more solicitations from flippers to buy my house in Houston. Five years ago I would get one or two a month, now I get two to three a week.  My house is not nor has it ever been up for sale. I have a yardman to keep up with the lawn. So why are they targeting me?  Just because I have an out-of-town address at the Harris County Appraisal District?

Even with the cooler temperatures all our trees are in bloom.  However, I have yet to start tackling the weeds :(

Good night.  May you all have Terlingua Dreams.

  1. What a shame you have to deal with a shyster like that podiatrist! I've already gotten a notice from my mobile home park reminding me that my weeds need to be taken care of. I'm so sick of using products that seem to fertilize the weeds rather than kill them, I'm ready to try Roundup. I won't use that stuff though if I can help it.

    1. MsB and Gypsy. Roundup is great WHEN USED PER THE INSTRUCTIONS. Otherwise it is a waste of money.

    2. Gypsy, ever since I watched a documentary on how the use of weed killers in particular they mentioned Roundup was doing away with the Monarch butterfly food source, I decided not to buy it.

      My weed control is done with a hoe in the shape of a stirup that was recommended to me years ago by fellow blogger Billy Bob.

  2. Doctors and/or politicians. You can't trust either. They both just want your money.

  3. I won't buy anything made by Monsanto (roundup) I honestly think they are trying to kill us! I use a hula hoe and I haven't sprayed for weeds in years. I still spray around the house every spring for bugs (ants mostly) They show up after every rain......
