On Monday (Labor Day) my best friend Debbie came to
play cards. We have this little thing where we say we are
gonna beat each others a$$. We never play for money,
we just play for fun. It's a good thing......
I won't say who lost, but OUCH!
We play a game called Nurtz (or is it Nertz?).
Any number of people can play. It is more fun
when 4 people play. The game can get kinda wild.
A couple of years ago I gifted Debbie with a
wine cork bulletin board (no, I did not drink that many
bottles of wine). My youngest daughter worked at a
couple of restaurants, one was the Angry Trout in
Bay View, on Lake Erie and the other at
the CIC (the Catawba Island Club also on the lake).
She was a bartender.
She could get an endless supply of corks
and so we put them to use. Debbie brought me a
bag of corks from one of her other friends.
The gal saw Debbie's board and wanted one too.
So my hubby made a board for her.
Here is a photo of it. Personally I think I
would have laid the corks out a bit different, anyways,
she should have plenty of room to tack up notes,
coupons and whatever she wants.
Roger's new hat came today. I didn't complain
that he already has too many hats to count,
this one makes a statement, and I think anyone
who can wear this hat should have it given to
them for free.
And here I am on a Friday with another batch
of spaghetti sauce simmering away in the roaster.
On Thursday I made my bi-weekly trip down
to the tomato patch and came back with another
large bucket full of tomatoes. This batch will go
into canning jars tomorrow. In the morning I will
also be baking a couple of beef roasts to make
pulled hot beef for sandwiches. I want to fill my
crock pot for the family reunion that is on Sunday.
Not much else going on in my boring world other
than I went today to my quarterly check-up with
my doctor and am doing well.
I lost 13 pounds since March.
He was pleased, I was pleased.
Now forgive me but I am gonna have my rant now
so if you don't want to read it I won't mind at all
if you want to move on to another blog. I got
my feathers ruffled a bit just after signing in.
Now after going there for the past 2+
years I just found out today the 2 gals who work
in his office, the receptionist and the nurse, that
neither are what I thought they were.
I just assumed the nurse was a nurse because after
the gal in the office takes my insurance cards
and tells me to take a seat, she also tells me that
"the nurse will be right with you."
Today I sign in and the receptionist has a
stethoscope around her neck, and she tells me she
will be the nurse today. I say, "I didn't know you
were a nurse," and she says, I'm not I'm a RPA."
I guess I wasn't quick on the draw cause I asked her
what RPA was and she said, "Registered Physician's
Assistant" and then she says, "same as P, she is also
a RPA, we just call her the nurse."
Okay folks, I'm an LPN for over 27 years, and I
went to school for 1 year, the year from HELL
I might add, and I sat all day long taking my
State Boards in Columbus and I don't go around
calling myself an RN or a doctor.
Do you see where I am coming from here?
Just don't pass yourself off as something you are not!
Needless to say I left there somewhat
disappointed in the gals.
I guess I will live, there are worse things in life.
Tomorrow is a new day and I have sauce to can.
That's all folks, have a good weekend.
