"What is the difference between you, a wildebeest and I? Nothing. We are all 

God's creatures. You ought to know that."

Nothing. We are all God's creatures. You ought to know that."


What if had only six months to live. What would I do? If you had six months to 

live. What would you do? If a wildebeest had six months to live what would they

do? This is all the things that you, the wildebeest and I have thought about before.

So you, tell me what you'd do. So wildebeest, tell me what you do. Maybe if both

of you do know, you can't answer, because I'm the one typing and you ain't. So, 

I guess, I'll have to tell you what I'd do:

1.   I would make amends or said in another way, I would apologize to anyone 

because of what I said are did that would have made them feel less good about 

themselves. For an example, in yesterday's post, I was a smart aleck with Danielle

Caricofe, my nephew Sean's wife. I was kidding about things that I typed on

Facebook to her, but maybe because of her serious nature, she might not know 

that. So, right now in this storey of today, I'm apologizing to her and hoping she

will forgive me. If she wants me to delete anything, I will as soon as I can after 

her request. Another example I might mention concerns my high school math

teacher. Her name was Polly Hill and I did apologize for my behavior from a 

long time ago. She remembered me and said that she did not remember me 

disrupting her class but I know I did and she died not longer after that. Another

was my typewriting teacher who may be related to my Uncle E .C. Showalter,

husband to my Aunt Ruth who my Mother's baby sister. She said the same thing

that Polly Hill said to me, but I know different.

2.   Make sure all my financial affairs are in order, fairly, to prevent my 

decendents from fighting or killing each over the little penance I have left.

This includes my will, deed to this property, Mother's Honda, my investment and 

checking accounts in my PNC (Pittsburgh National Corporation ) Bank, mini-

refridgerator and the food within, my clothes with sewed on American flag 

patches and other things too numerous to mention.

3.   My plan for dying and burial is simple. I have a graveyard-bought plot, but,

hopefully, I'll able to donate it to someone less fortunate. There is an old proverb 

that I've heard "Once you become a burden upon mankind, you shalt leave your 

adobe and walk into the wilderness until you are deceased."

And after thinking about my life here on earth and as determined by the 5th floor 

in the Sentara Rockingham Memorial Hospital and the Community Service Board 

in Harrisonburg, Virginia, I just an old hippie that's crazy as hell.

boyfriend, relative and friend.

*5:57 AM 2/8/2017 EST. I'm having my 1st sandwich of the day and you know 

what it is so, if you don't know, ask someone else, I'm getting tired of repeating


*I'm going to drive Bill to Dr. Kwok's office today located in Suite C on the 3rd 

floor of the Wooster Community Hospital. This is one of the few hospitals left that

is not owned or partially owned by another hospital. Like Smuckers in Orrville 

who have bought about half the town, most hospitals I know of have been bought

by the Clevend Clinic, Aultman Hospital in Canton and University Hospitals in 

Cleveland. Bill will see Dr. Kwok, and will receive two shots by one of the two

nurse assistents, both named Jessica and then their is Elizabeth III who runs the place.

One shot is a B-12 shot. I don't get that shot and I don't know what it's for? Sounds 

like a type of military aircraft, maybe a bomber, made by Boeing, the major 

aircraft manufacturer that President Trump has convinced to lower their costs in 

manufacturing aircraft for the U. S. military.

The shot Bill also seems to need is a testosterone shot. Same as above, I don't 

receive this shot and I don't know what it's for? By trying to figured it out by 

breaking the word down. I would guess that it means to test a drone. Maybe 

Amazon is testing a new model drone for delivering their online purchases.

*I told you the other day that the good Dr. Kwok convinced me to take a cholesterol

prescription medication. He said that cholestral is not now based on numbers of 

200 or less, but risk factors and I could reduce my risk from 28% to 14% of having

a heart attack or/and stroke by taking a watch battery size blue pill with TEVA on

one side and 7202 on the other side. This pill is called Pravastatin and after talking 

to the CVS (Convenience, Value, and Service. Before I looked it up the other day I 

thought it stood for Company of Viruses and Sin) pharmacist yesterday about the risk 

of taking this pill, I'll probably die from the side effects of the pill before I die of a

heart attack or stroke.

*Not to change the subject but now I have another pill to name so I can remember 

it. I have already named the long, almost 5 page, list of prescription medications 

that I ingest daily below;

1.   I take 2 pills for being crazy as hell;

Depakote which I call: Drop-a-Coat.

Seroquel which I call: Sarah Palin.

2.   Lisinopril which I call: Listen to April.

3.   Metoprolol which I call: Marco Pollo.

4.   I have two eyedrops that I squirt in both eyes to restrict the eye pressure of 

glaucoma both in the morning and at night.

Timolol which I call: Timid All.

Latanoprost which I call: Land Posted.

5.   And now for naming Pravastatin.  PrĂ¡va city is in Greece and so I'll name this 

pill: not City of Statin, but City of Satan. 

All, I forgot to tell you, I developed bronchitis and I went once again to see Dr. 

Kwok. He prescribed for me Augmentin and Prednisone. I've never heard of 

Augmentin, but looks like he prescribes for me the Prednisone every time I turn 

around. So I might as well rename this prescription medication to better 

remember it. I believe I'll call it Pregnant Zone.

*5:32 PM 2/8/2017 EST. Just in: Politics: Supreme Court nominee Gorsuch says 

Trump’s attacks on judiciary are ‘demoralizing.’

*There are a lot of big mouths in the United States Senate. Take Massachusetts 

Democrat Elizabeth Warren who, like many people I know, speak before 

thinking. "The Senate voted along party lines Tuesday night to silence"............. 

"Warren from breaking a Senate rule that prohibits any Senator from impugning 

another Senator during debate over the nomination of Alabama Republican Jeff 

Sessions as attorney general."

The Senate voted 49-43 along a party line vote to stop Warren from speaking, 

invoking Rule 19, which states, "No Senator in debate shall, directly or indirectly, 

by any form of words impute to another Senator or to other Senators any conduct 

or motive unworthy or unbecoming a Senator."

*"Democrats were planning another all-nighter opposing Sessions' nomination. 

A confirmation vote is expected today."

*"Jefferson Beauregard "Jeff" Sessions III, age 70, is the junior United States 

Senator from Alabama and a member of the Republican Party" and is expected 

to be confirmed as Trump's Attorney General by a majority vote from the Senate 


*9:50 AM 2/8/2017 EST. As of this time, a panel of appeals court judges are still 

conducting hearings before the San Francisco-based 9th Circuit Court of 

Appeals. The government says that states cannot challenge Trump's executive 

banning order. The on again, off again legality of this order has had implications


*The GOP (Good Old Party) is a "happy camper" political party today after Vice-

President Mike Pence cast the deciding historical vote yesterday to break a 50-50 

tie in confirming Betsy DeVos as Secretary of Education.

*"Lawrence Alan "Larry" Kudlow, age 69, is an American conservative 

commentator, economic analyst, television personality, and newspaper 

columnist" says that Trump Ban Isn't About Muslims, 'It's About Terrorists.'

*Lindsey Olin Graham is a member of the Republican Party who has served as 

a United States Senator from South Carolina who comments often on political

going ons. His latest comment said that the U. S. should push "for veto-proof

Russia sanctions.

*"Rain, rain, go away come back in two weeks" is a quote I remember from my 

childhood. We have gotten so much rain in northeastern that were there are low

places in surrounding farmer's fields so deep that I would drown if I didn't know 

how to swim.

The weather for Cleveland that's on the news includes almost the same weather 

forecast for Wooster.

Flurries. This is were I stop. Flurries is another word for the 4-letter dirty word

they call snow and see I've been spoiled by the temperatures of yesterday, but I

don't want the flooding to kill anyone, of course:

"Cleveland ties high temperature record of 60 degrees previously set in 1925.

Flood warning issued for Grand River at Painesville.

Flood warning issued for Chagrin River at Willoughby.

National Weather Service issues flood warning for Cuyahoga, Geauga, Lake and 

Ashtabula counties", all of these counties, cities or towns are in northeastern Ohio.

*9:08 AM 2/8/2017 EST. Before I left the house, I check the inside weather. The

temperature was 71° and the humidity was 52%. I went outdoors to take 2 

postcards in envelopes to mail to someone in Germany and Italy. I will upload each

picture postcard to Facebook, Tumbler, Google + and Twitter either today or 

tomorrow and explain what city in their country they live in.

I glanced at the temperature only gauge as I came back indoors and it read 39°, not

much different than earlier this morning.

*"Destructive tornadoes left a trail of devastation in the South. Louisiana is under 

a state of emergency after a series of tornadoes smashed homes and businesses 

Tuesday in the southeastern part of the state.

Thousands lost power. Some of the worst damage was in the New Orleans area, 

including neighborhoods hit hard by Hurricane Katrina. Dozens of people in 

Louisiana were hurt, some seriously. Local and state officials are asking people to 

stay away", reports CBS News correspondent David Begnaud.

"As nearly half a dozen powerful twisters barreled through Southeast Louisiana, 

people recorded the destruction as it unfolded."
