Default My July 4, 2014

Well, I had to go to the hospital.. now there are several reasons to go to a hospital, most of them are not at all fun.. but I've been known to go to the hospital (Port Huron, MI) cause I had a routine appointment near there and the Wi-Fi at the hospital was better than the campground, and the cafeteria in that hospital is not all that bad so I checked into the cafeteria for breakfast, lunch and internet. Then hiked to the doctor's and back.

That's not a bad reason at all (Food is good)

I also checked into that hospital for other reasons.. Not good, but at least I checked out vertical and that's good.

This trip I was just visiting...

Now of all the reasons to visit a hospital... That is #1 on the best list.

What a waste. You could at least have had a car wreck, or fallen and broken a leg. Then the trip wouldn't have been wasted. But I suppose it is better this way.

He's got a ready-made theme song, by George M. Cohan:

I'm a Yankee Doodle Dandy
A Yankee Doodle, do or die
A real live nephew of my Uncle Sam
Born on the Fourth of July
I've got a Yankee Doodle sweetheart
She's my Yankee Doodle joy
Yankee Doodle came to London
Just to ride the ponies
I am the Yankee Doodle Boy.
etc.

Congrats!

You know.. I know a couple stories like that, even have one of my own.. But what can I say.. If I take it in the spirit I am sure you typed it in.. "Smile" works.

If I take it seriously, Trip not a waste, Hit pet supply stores (2) and gas station (Best brice in 3 counties) on the way to hospital.

Actually, I failed at first to follow your explanatory links.

Alas.... One of the medications they had me on last September on my last trip to the hospital other than the cafeteria.... Was in fact rat poison. They switched me to an alternative when I checked out,, vertically, which is the best way to check out..

I took it as in jest. figured you'd followed the links. I am about to go see the subjects of one of those photos soon as I finish this part of the internet run in about 5 minutes.
