Pffft


The other morning, I found this guy hanging out inside my screen door.  His body was about 3/4 inch long and his tail maybe an inch.  He spent most of the day just hanging out, until people started coming and going.  I made sure they didn't slam the door and scare my friend.  The motion must have been too much for him, because I watched him run down the door, slip under the crack and take off down the sidewalk.  I warned him the pigeons would get him, but he didn't listen.  Haven't seen him since.

I didn't go to the job interview.  They called two hours before, just as I came back from grocery shopping and canceled for today.  The State inspectors appeared this morning and they are preoccupied at the moment.  The lady stressed they are still very interested in me and would hopefully call someday after Wednesday, depending on how long the State takes.  So  please continue to send the "job mojo" my way.  Bootsie is currently working on a pipeline and containment system.

Tomorrow, Duane has an appointment with the SSI/SSD Dr.  He's quite nervous about this.  It's based on my experience with SS Dr. years ago with my back.  It was a Saturday, the Dr. talked to me for 10 - 15 minutes, then said he was late for his golf game.  I had signed a paper stating I wanted a copy of the report.  What came back was this report of this thorough exam he claimed he performed (didn't) and basically that I wasn't as disabled as my Dr. claimed.  Please be sending "do the right thing" mojo for the SSI/SSD exam.

I'm worried they might say his illness won't last long enough to qualify.  It's the only thing I can think of that they might use.  I can't imagine they would think he could go to work while needing extra oxygen.  One of the little cylinders, the home care sends us, lasts 2 1/5 hours, so he would have to drag 4 of them to work and back everyday.  I don't think so. Or a bigger 10 hour tank.   hahaha  It would look like he is dragging a bomb around town.

Tomorrow, I'll tell you about the birds.

I hope the Dr appt went ok. Fingers crossed for your interview too! It must be frustrating to have it postponed like that, but it's good to know they're still interested!
