In Case You've Wondered

My blog is where my wandering thoughts are interspersed with stuff I made up. So, if while reading you find yourself confused about the context, don't feel alone. I get confused, too.

If you're here for the stories, I started another blog:

One other thing: sometimes I write words you refuse to use in front of children, or polite company, unless you have a flat tire, or hit your thumb with a hammer.

I don't use them to offend; I use them to embellish.

More of the Same

Today was may biannual trip to my dermatologist. As usual, the "barnacles" (seborrheic keratosis) required cryogenic treatment. He removed about a dozen, which means freezing them with liquid nitrogen, which is applied with a device similar to a pen. For those that have never had this done, it's not pleasant. One or two is bad enough, but when it gets to the dozens, thinking about the next visit isn't a pleasant thought. 

One area required a biopsy, which I'm thinking will probably come back as basil cell; and require another trip to the surgeon for a Moh's Procedure. My original dermatologist (who I basically fired) made a stab at removing the area years ago without the microscopic examination of the area to verify the cancer was removed. Otherwise, he left some cells around the perimeter of the area he removed, and they will continue to slowly spread. 

Other than that, it's been a quiet, dreary day. That required a short nap, which led to me awakening to the wonderful aroma of my wife cooking a spaghetti. It was beyond good, and there's plenty to enjoy tomorrow. Any left after that will be frozen for a future day. 

The news sucks as usual. It could be better if they announced John Kerry, after being convicted of treason, was executed at dawn. 


  1. Waking up to the smell of spaghetti (or bacon) is always good.
    Good health to you!

  2. Best of luck on a speedy recovery. Load up on anti-oxidants?

    1. Thanks. I take supplements to overcome my eating habits.

  3. I like spaghetti. And I served in Vietnam Kerry should rot in prison.

    1. Kerry spit on all that served in Viet Nam. Along with Hanoi Jane, the U.S. was tarnished by traitors that should have been prosecuted.
