I finally cracked and went to the dentist, who pulled the molar that was already loose. It was so bad last night, I was sobbing.  Hate having a big wad of gauze stuffed in my mouth and I'm dreading when the Novocain wears off, but right now it is such a joy to be out of pain. 

And yes, I am macabre enough that I asked to keep the tooth. :-)

And now his soul is forever in the stars.  Enjoy outer space, rest in peace.
 
The news is everywhere, but what I keep thinking of is that little exchange in Star Trek VI.  When everything is dark and they realize they're up against the proverbial wall, Scotty moans, "Then we're dead."

And Spock replies, "I've been dead before."

Live long and prosper, my friends.
Mr. Nimoy won a worshipful global following as Mr. Spock, the resolutely logical human-Vulcan first officer in the television and movie juggernaut “Star Trek.”

It's a terrific graphic, it deserves to be shared all over.

Do you think the VA should force all veterans who take any type of painkiller prescription, to attend a clinic on drug safety, and then have a mandatory drug test to assure they are not using any other narcotics or improperly taking their prescription?

I am so weary of this cold weather!   I didn't have a warm winter coat, and tomorrow it is supposed to be zero degrees in the morning, so I went to the Red Racks (Disabled American Veterans)  thrift store and picked up a nice knee-length, camel hair overcoat. 

I have to take husband down to the VA hospital tomorrow morning for a checkup, and the idea of walking a mile from the parking lot to the building (I can drop him off at the door)  in my little cloth blazer seemed pretty miserable.

Much love and hugs to you too. This flu just keeps hanging on here too. Won't let go with the reoccurring symptoms for several months. Be warm, feel better soon, Marti.

Story
Tagline
Author, humorist, lover of life
Introduction
I grew up in Independence, Missouri, and was strongly influenced by Harry Truman's straight talk and honest action. I have been a registered radiological technologist, pre-need counselor, webmaster, humor columnist, and blogger.

I am also a moderator for the Google Plus Community "Writers Discussion Group"  which proudly hit 10,000 members March 8, 2013 and topped 15,000 on October 22, 2013.

I am the author of three books,  a collection of essays, "Queen Klutz: The Misadventures of a Very Clumsy Woman," a paranormal mystery novel, "River of Possibilities," and a humorous self-help manual, "7 Ways You Screw Up Your Life (and how to unscrew it)"

I am published in the Examiner newspaper, 2006 Writer's Blog Anthology and as a featured columnist at USA Deep South and Southern Humorists. I live in rural Jackson County, Missouri.

I am a humorist, lover of life, author and caregiver for my disabled husband (stroke) and until her recent passing, my mother-in-law (Parkinson's). I love social media because I don't get to meet people in real-life due to my caregiving responsibilities.

I blog about laughter, bad luck, no luck, being a klutz, cars that hate me, life and love. I turned several of my blog posts and newspaper columns into my first book.  Then I lived the dream of writing a novel which is available at Amazon and Smashwords.  I am an early adopter of new technologies and wrote a third book - a humorous self-help manual with many friends from the early days of Twitter including Foreword by Chris Brogan. Contributors = Jeremiah Owyang, Becky McCray, Susan Reynolds, Terry Starbucker, Liz Strauss. I worked for Seth Godin when Squidoo was being launched, building pages to increase the site's viability.
