It looks like today is going to be a busy day for us. We have been trying to find a primary care doctor in this area and have not had any luck so far. We got quite a few recommendations for different ones, but some aren’t taking new patients, and one that was taking new patients is not taking senior citizens on Medicare. That surprised me because it seems like most doctors’ offices love Medicare.
One physician that came highly recommended was Doctor Julia Boothe in Reform, about twelve miles west of us. I talked to her office last week and she is accepting new patients, so today we have to go to her office and fill out a bunch of new patient paperwork. The receptionist said they are scheduling new patients about two weeks out, but Terry is going to take a list of all of our prescriptions and a previous lab order with her because we are low or out on some of them. That way the doctor will hopefully know our needs when we do go in for the appointment.
On our way to the doctor’s office we have to stop at the post office in Gordo to mail off a couple of things.
Then, when we are done with the doctor, we have to run to Lowe’s (it seems like we live at Lowe’s sometimes) to pick up a few things. From there we may want to stop at the grocery store since we’ll be by one and we don’t go to town very often.
It will be nice to get away from the house for a little bit, because for the last few days all we’ve done is work in the garden or here in the house. I wrote another 3,400 words yesterday, then Terry edited and proofread six more chapters in my new Tinder Street book. When she was done with that, I made her corrections, then sent them off to Roberta and Judy for a second and third round of proofreading.
Since the weather looks good this week, Tuesday Travis will probably come over and help me get those fence posts out of the ground and the wire wound up. Then later in the week we plan to get the deer fence put up around the garden.
Congratulations Darhl Stultz, winner of our drawing for an autographed copy of Angry Nurse by the late Karl Bort and Thekla Madsen. When a wealthy Cleveland businessman is admitted to St. Luke’s Behavioral Health Unit, he insists that his wife, lawyer, and the hospital administrator are plotting to have him permanently committed and begs Nurse Joshua Ramsey to help him. Are these the ravings of an insane man or is something more sinister at work? When the man’s wife and lawyer are found dead, Detective Nicholas Silvano gets the case. It’s a tale with psychological twists that will have you believing that if you weren’t crazy when you checked in, you will be before long.

And finally, here’s a chuckle to start your day from the collection of funny signs we see in our travels and that our readers share with us.
