There's Somebody Out There!

Well, I received a call from Dr. Huebsch's office this morning, giving me a heads up that the Family Day Clinic would be calling me to schedule my chemo for later this week. Not much of a heads up, eh? And there's definitely a lack of coordination here. They can call and give me a heads up but they can't tell me the day or the time the appointments will be.


As well, when asked if there had been any follow up from the first series of chemo, I said no, there'd been absolutely none. (How could there be, if I can never reach anyone.) I'm now scheduled for bloodwork and an appointment with Dr. Huebsch tomorrow at 12:30. Communications seems a little one way here. I can never reach the right person when I call. But when they call me, boom, I get action!


Tomorrow, I think I'll ask for a specific name and a number I can call in future. If I have a month like I did in May, I can't just sit around waiting for them to call me!

Tales From The Supermarket

Bob and Brenda worked in the supermarket. They weren't check-out clerks. And they weren't stock-boys. Brenda sure wasn't. And they weren't employees who worked in the fish section or the deli. No. They were on the shelves.

They hadn't been on the shelves very long but in that short time they'd developed a considerably close friendship.

The chatted all day when the store was busy and at night when the store was closed. They talked about everything. The talked about what raw products they came from. The talked about their manufacturing processes. And they talked about the long routes in semi-trailers that brought them to this store.

Oddly enough the one thing they never made clear to one another was just what product each of them was.

One day when Brenda was commenting on their friendship she told Bob she was grateful for their amity. "Are you Tea?" said Bob, pekoe-ing her way. "I thought I was Tea". You're coffee!"

My Back Pages - October

Well, folks, I read seven (count 'em) seven books in October. One I didn't finish but even at that I hit the magic number 50 I estimated for myself by the end of the year. The six books I successfully waded through were, firstly, What Happened, Hillary Clinton's book on her bid for the Presidency. I''m a bit of a political junkie so I get off on this stuff but still it kinda struck me as one long whine over losing.
Next up was the excellent Canyon of Dreams: The Magic and Music of Laurel Canyon. Laurel Canyon was the fabled area outside of Los Angeles where many musicians and artists lived. Known as a 60s enclave, the book takes a look at just who lived there over the last 80 years. A fascinating read.
Next up was Lightfoot, a biography of Canadian folk singer Gordon Lightfoot. He may have been responsible for some iconic folk songs but he was also quite the womanizer and boozer. Enough said.
Then I read Dan Brown's new tome Origin, the fifth in the Robert Lan…
