Greets and Huggers. Posted the evening of April 29, 2016. Last Saturday afternoon, Susan’s suger went low. Coming back into the house, she passed out and hit the floor. When I found her … she was flat on her back, staring at the ceiling. I thought she was dead!!! Scared me to death! I lifted her up into a chair, and fed her juice … after 2 cans of juice … her sugar had come up to 49 … and she started complaining about how much her shoulder hurt. After her sugar came up to an acceptable level, I took her to the ER. She has a broken left clavicle. On Tuesday, I took her to an orthopedic surgeon who opined … “It was a clean break. It should heal without the necessity of implanting a pin. Come back in a week and we will make sure the bones are still in place. If not, she will need a pin.” She was in a lot of pain, so he scripted her hydrocodone. A break like this takes the average person 4 – 6 weeks to heal. Being a Type I, insulin injecting diabetic … realistically, it will take Susan 8 – 10 weeks to heal … probably longer because she is a smoker. Prayers … appreciated.
In religious news: (BBC NEWS) — Poland to stage Pope John Paul II musical. “A new musical about the life of Pope John Paul II will open in Poland early next year, the first to be produced in the late pontiff’s home country. Hundreds of tickets have already been sold for the show, entitled Karol, which will make its premiere in Krakow in February, Radio Poland reports. Born Karol Wojtyla, he was archbishop of the city for more than a decade prior to being elected Pope in 1978.” I wonder if Tom Lehrer’s “Vatican Rag” will be one of the songs in the musical? Tom Lehrer is an interesting guy!! His Bio.
And talking about a Vatican Rag: (CNN) — At the Vatican, Catholic Biden cops to small vice. “At the Vatican on Friday, a smiling Joe Biden gave new meaning to the title “vice” president. Biden, a lifelong Catholic, copped to making a small wager with a reporter covering his trip — in front of the Vatican’s Secretary of State, Cardinal Pietro Parolin. “I had to pay this man $10,” Biden told Parolin, pointing to a reporter from The New York Times. The two had bet over which car is faster, the Tesla or the Cadillac. Biden choose the Cadillac, which is slightly slower, he told the cardinal. “Oh, yes?” Parolin answered politely.” Don’t you wonder if that is really the worst ”sin” Biden has committed?
Sometimes Judges just get it wrong. (CNN) — Oklahoma legislature will fix sodomy law, lawmaker says. “An Oklahoma lawmaker is promising to close what he called a “court-created loophole” in state law that blocked the prosecution of a teenager accused of sexually assaulting a drunken girl two years ago and set off cries of protest around the nation. “I am horrified by the idea that we would allow these depraved rapists to face a lower charge simply because the victim is unconscious,” Rep. Scott Biggs said earlier this week in announcing plans to rush a fix through the legislature. The Oklahoma Court of Criminal Appeals ruled March 24 that a lower court judge was right to dismiss a forcible oral sodomy charge against the teenaged suspect because state law doesn’t mention intoxication or unconsciousness among the five criteria describing the crime.” How can an unconscious person consent to having sex? Isn’t the basis of rape, sex without the consent of the other person? It is rape even if the other person consents, but lacks the capacity to do so, like a minor for example!
Image technology has come a long way!! As the article notes, some has not yet been released to the public. Being a Photoshop editor … I would buy it!! (CNN) — How child predator was caught by tiny clue in photo he posted online. “In a bathroom, the predator has placed a child on the counter to photograph his evil acts. In the background of the photo, which was posted online, are products including prescription medication. But zooming in on that pill bottle makes the details unreadable. In a small, dark lab Jim Cole, special agent and supervisor of Victim Identification at the Homeland Security Investigations Cyber Crimes Center gets to work using the latest technology available.” Glad they caught this waste of skin. There has to be a special place in Hell for kiddy diddlers.
Sitting here editing these Ramblings. Susan is resting comfortably in her easy chair … after taking a couple of pain pills. She is in for a tough couple of months. On the evening news, a Trump protest in California … I haven’t seen so many Mexican flags since the last Cinco-De Mayo celebration in 2015. In California … Cinco-De-Mayo is the equivalent of St Patrick’s Day in the rest of the country. Susan is working tomorrow and we have plans to work in the garden on Sunday. Sunday Lunch and a Movie? Leftovers. The movie? “High Strung ”
Time to post these Ramblings and settle in for a quiet evening at Ft Timmerman. I remain nicotine free. Later when I say my Thank You’s for the many blessings in my life and Susan to share them with … I will also say a prayer for the safe and soon return of our men and women in uniform, (care to join me?) Be and sleep well, the best we have as a nation are on watch so you can. If my post offends, I apologize … that is certainly not my intent. As always …
A Warm Brotherly Hug
