So Michele, you were a leap year marriage? Darn it - don't have a joke for that! My former wife missed being a leap year baby by one day! I do have a joke for that - but never mind!!!!
But ....... I can say that my Mustang was something of a disaster too! With mine, the engine died as I was trying to pass a truck on a narrow highway - with an 18-wheeler bearing down on me. I hit the brakes - and the stupid power brakes didn't work because the engine had died (and I almost did too)! Those were the years - before they used a vacuum assist with vacuum storage on cars - so that the brakes would work if the engine died!
Myself ...... here again I've gotten spoiled. I would actually like to see the campus. It's located in an old section of Chicago that was upwardly mobile - called Hyde Park. One of Frank Lloyd Wrights most famous houses is about a half mile away from U of C.
At my support meeting yesterday, I mentioned that I might consider a cab!!@!! Oh it would be so expensive! And the suggestion yesterday was to make an appointment for 7am to 8am at the latest - then drive a certain route - and because of the time, most of the rush hour traffic would be missed. I will do that next week because it's an 8am appointment.
I downloaded a PDF from U. of C. - and found it even costs to park there - $6.00 for 3-hours on up to $20.00 for 24-hours and those are discounted prices thru the medical center. I would guess that the treatments would be every three weeks - and basically last the whole day with travel time. It serves no purpose to stay there!
Karen ...... it is the location of the clinical trial I was talking about. When checking their website, they seem to have close to 20-different clinical trials for metastisized prostate cancer - and I believe that's the largest number of trials like that in the midwest. Next week, I'll find out which of the listed trials from their website is the one that the doctor is planning.
I got ahold of my mentor today .... bad situation. He's been in the hospital for over a month now - and it sounds very bad. I don't think he'll be coming out!
Anybody want a dog???? I was on the phone three times around noon to 2:00pm. Gizmo was in an exceptionally wicked mood today! While I'm on the phone - he:
1) Took a coffee container off the Kitchen counter - brought it on the LR carpet.
2) The coffee container was 1/4 full until he brought it into the LR!
3) He stold my favorite Ace comb off the coffee table and snapped the teeth out.
4) He stold a brand new pack of 8-AA batteries off the counter - and opened them.
5) He took the just-emptyed soup container and paraded around me on the phone.
6) He found an almost empty ginger ale can - brought it into the LR to empty it.
7) I sounded like a sailor in between telephone calls.
8) And now he's sleeping??????
Didn't someone say pay-back is a b***h? In 25-minutes, he has a vet appointment!!!!!!
