About Me

A Catholic who follows Rome & the Magisterium. I'm against gay "marriage", abortion, embryonic stem cell research, euthanasia, human cloning. Altar girls, Communion in the hand, Eucharistic Ministers and "Protestant" music in the Church doesn't bother me at all. A proud American retired submarine sailor. Our borders should be secured with a 10 ft. high fence topped by concertina wire with minefields out to 20 yards on both sides and an additional 10 yards filled with warning signs outside of that Let's get energy independent NOW! Back Israel to the max, stop appeasing followers of the Pedophile Prophet. Pro 2nd Amendment, pro death penalty, Repeal all hate crime legislation. Back the police unless you'd rather call a hippie when everything hits the fan. Get government out of dealing with education, childhood obesity and the enviornment. Stop using the military for sociological experiments and if we're in a war don't micromanage their every move. Kill your television, limit time on the computer and pick up a book. God's will be done and may He have mercy upon us all.

Don't they have doctors there too?

Jawdropper of the day: The wife is working phone triage for her job. That translates into her giving advice to concerned parents on what to do with Johnny when he gets sick after hours and the doctor is out of reach. This can be anything from "take him to the ER" to "just give his meds a little more time to kick in". The wife has a whole list of doctors who signed onto her company's service, the listing comes complete with what hospitals to take the kid to. Pretty neat setup.

So tonight she gets a phone call, "Mom" has a tot with 104 degree fever so what should she do? Oh by the way, she's calling from Ecuador where they're vacationing for the holidays. Gee, I remember when calling to the other side of the country was considered a big deal. Ain't modern technology wonderful?

No, that list of doctors doesn't include anyone out of country. "Mom" called her Stateside doctor's office for advice. DUH!

My two cents worth was to tell "Mom" in words of one syllable or less that she has to find the local equivalent of an ER. Lottsa luck too!

As I told the wife, some people would have difficulty figuring out how to pour piss out of a boot if they couldn't call for help.

Maybe I'm just getting cranky in my old age, I dunno.

Somtime I'll have to put up a post about the call she took from India. No, I'm not kidding.
