yesterday I was introduced to he and his girfriends new puppy. He growled at me at first then decided to put me at ease by licking my hand. After I had given him his card with the check in it I turned to leave. The party was being held at his dada' pool so as I reached for the gate the little sucker clamped down on the back of my left heel. I thot at first he got me achilles but thankfully he missed it by a 1/2 inch. Bleeding like a stuck pig my daughter took me into the closest bathroom and poured peroxide the alcohol on the 2 inch long wounds. After getting the bleeding to stop I got into the car to go to the Hospitals Emergency room. After an hour and filling out every form they had I was taken to anothwer waiting room that had 17 (Yeppo 17) people in it. Knowing there was probably every germ known to mankind floating 'round in the air I got up told the front desk I be gone and then went to a Emergency Clinic and found it was teeming with life. The big hand was on the 12 and the little on the 4 so I asked the lady at the counter how long the wait would be. Without batting an eyelash she said an hour and a half but we close at 4:30. I'm going in this morning at 8 to get my tetanus shot, hopefully being close to the front of the trough. Thinking about putting a "stop-payment" on his derned Birthday check. WW [img][/img]

Take care of yourself and no rough stuff for a few days there WW

That's what you get for tasting so sweet...

Take care, and take copious volumes of anesthetic, if you know what I mean.

What kind of puppy was it? Don't disappoint me by saying a retriever puppy. The grandson will need to be careful in the future--friends and neighbors (and strangers) are more likely to sue than a doting grandpa.

Have been to Urgent Care yesterday and for a follow-up this morning. Hate throwing fuel on the fire but couldn't help but notice over 1/2 the people waiting to see the Dr. couldn't speak English. Though this is a private corp they were mandated to see these people. One couple came in with a 7-8 year old boy,2 girls 3&4 and one in a bassinet. Another had 5 between 2 & 6. Another only had 3 under 4. Of course none could produce any type of insurance. Really a sad situation but underscores the massive problem we face here in Arizona and the one facing all Americans. We really need for Obama to get off his patootie and get this immigration thing under control. Sorry for the Massive rant. WW

Sweet, hell! The dog thought he was one of those dried up, wrinkled raw hide chewy thingies!
