I've Been Busy

I have been very busy for me. I can’t seem to catch up.

Today I had my annual physical. Guys hate to go to the doctor; they may point out things we guys deny daily.

I usually sing “Three Little Birds” to myself because every little thing is going to be alright… even if I croak.

My blood pressure was higher again. They may need to crank up the BP meds again.

I had a hearing test too. I told the doctor that either me or Gigi is going deaf. The results were stellar. I can hear like a dog.

When I got to the lobby to leave I felt like one of my dogs leaving the vet. I could imagine my toenails skidding across the floor while I smeared pee pee all over the place trying to get out the door.

I know that feeling when leaving after one of "those" appointments. I always just want to get out and put the memory behind me for another year.

You crack me up Reggie.

So if I get close to your house while I'm driving through the Carolinas and I blow my dog whistle eight times long, then four short you'll know it's me.

favorite words heard on my vacation: you'll trust a guy you barely know to take you and your kids on open water in a folding boat, but you *don't know* whether or not you'll agree to a day at sea with me??

Hope you passed all your tests!

I try only to go visit doctors I like. I've been friends with my dentist for 14 years.

And I really like my OB-GYN. He's a real down-to-earth guy, for a twat doc. Not all preachy and pretentious like some of them can be.

My GP is a woman who realizes the value of an holistic lifestyle and respects alternative therapies.

I wouldn't go to a doctor that made me feel uncomfortable.

I guess we're lucky that we have good medical folks even down here in the middle of nowhere!

Ah, there you are! I was getting worried...

High blood pressure - maybe I should come down and monitor it for you since I'm such a pro at it now :)

Your post reminded me off this Brian Regan routine. Especially around the 45 second mark. I can totally see you being like that!

So true Jay Gray, he even pointed out a mole....big fat mole man.

Fortunately my doctor knows I make an effort in diet and exercise and lets the meds do the rest.

Yes I could loose a few pounds and yes I could exercise twice as much, but I ain't gonna do it.

I may be more fit if I lived in the Caribbean from the additional exercise of snorkeling.

Snorkeling is the perfect workout and you never get over heated.
