Monday's Missives






    Even as a boy I did not completely get the Your anus jokes about Uranus since that's a mispronunciation.









  • A very sad video, made only sadder by the detachment you may feel since it was filmed through night vision. A 24 year old Army specialist Chazray Clark from Michigan has been blown up by an IED losing both legs and one arm. Terms you may not be familiar with: 9 line medevac- this is the report the air ambulances get on what to expect of the nature of wounds of the patient, the surrounding terrain and enemy activity. KAF- pronounced as spelled: an acronym for Khandahar Air Field in Afghanistan.






  • Recently I heard some new Ringo Starr music. I thought he was dead. Regardless, it was pretty awful.






  • Eeeew, you have a mustache on your face. Why did you get a mustache on your face? - what a patient's daughter said to me after seeing me for the first time since growing the offending facial hair.






  • Multiple patient's children have drawn pictures which I've place on my over desk cabinet. One did it, another tried to one-up that one, then it took on a life of its own.

Kids know who the good guys are. If they are drawing you pictures, I'd take that as a compliment.

Photograph - best Richard Starkey song ever.

Didn't watch much of the Grammy's last night, but did see Mr. Starr's brother-in-law by marriage dancing to Rhinestone Cowboy.
