Terry and I had our regular periodic checkups with our primary care doctor yesterday afternoon, and after going over all of our charts and the results of our lab tests that were done last week, he said we are both doing very well. Our blood pressures, A1C, cholesterol, and all those things they look at […]

After a very rough Tuesday night due to my back pain, we were up and out the door early yesterday morning because we had all kinds of things we needed to get done. Our first stop was at Island Doctors for our regular checkups, which we do every few months. Terry and I both had […]

I have a problem with my wife and I just don’t know what to do about it. I know what I should do about it, but that’s not going to happen. You see, my wife is the best cook in the world, and she makes wonderful treats all the time. It’s something she loves to […]

Yesterday I had an appointment with my civilian primary care doctor for a routine checkup and to review some lab work I had done last week. After reviewing everything from the labs and checking my heart and blood pressure, she says I’m in darned good shape for a fat old guy. All of my numbers; […]

The weather here in Central Florida has been crazy. In the last week we’ve had overnight temperatures that dropped down into the upper 30s, and some days we had to wear jackets when we left the house. Other days, like yesterday, it was in the 80s and the air conditioner was running. I guess the […]

Lately all I’ve been doing is running back and forth to doctor appointments and working on my new book, Big Lake Wedding. I need a day off to just go sit on the dock and watch the dolphins playing in the water and the manatee swimming by. Or better yet, to hop in my Mustang […]
