We are discouraged but it could be worse…we were reminded of that as we spoke to a friend whose husband was buried ten days ago. Dead is worse that having some port problems.
Far Guys port is severely occluded, now even the fancy smancy too expensive pump will not push the liquid gold through his veins. We made a mad dash to the infusion center and from now on he will have a normal IV there until the doctors and Far Guy figure it out. It ties us down, but where do we go anyways? Not far.
Sometimes it is dangerous to leave the boonies.

Now…what do you think the proper response is when another car tries to force you off the road…go into the ditch, let them hit you from behind or tromp on it to get ahead of the bums? It has happened to me twice in the new passing lane on the way to town…being a nice old lady I go to the right lane in case someone wants to pass me…not any more ..no more Minnesota nice for me. I am taking that left lane if a vehicle is in sight. I refuse to yield to idiots that want to come along side me until MY lane ends. If I hadn’t been driving I would have taken a photo and reported them. ( One time I tromped on the gas and sped ahead, the other time I stomped on the brakes before my lane ended in the ditch…those rumble strips are awfully loud.)
When I called them some really nasty words Far Guy said “Calm down sweetheart.” I think they were probably on the phone and distracted…I would like to see mandatory jail sentences for phone use while driving. Throw a whole bunch of them in jail for six months and impound their vehicles and sell them at auction….that would stop a few distracted drivers and save a few lives….then again we as a society cannot even get the drunks off the road and out of vehicles… something is rotten in our traffic laws/court system. Discouraging isn’t it?
