I LOVE Bob Dylan. He's from my home state - that makes him almost family. I used to sit with my cousin Bradley in his big yellow car - something from the late 40's or early 50's I think - and we would listen to the newest Bob Dylan songs. Lif... Read more

This is just a mind rant - I need to get it out somewhere so I can get on with myself and my day! Some of you know that my husband and I have been having a lot of problems with his family - and frankly, if I NEVER had to see any of them again I... Read more

For the past month I've been poked and prodded and asked a whole lot of dumb questions by doctors who I'm not really sure care about the answers. Apparently there is now a "Medicare Annual Physical" in which they insult your ability to take car... Read more

I keep saying "it's March in Minnesota" but really, I have driven in the worst snow storms in March just to get to work. One year our car was so iced up that I drove it to work downtown, paid $16 to park in the underground heated garage just so... Read more

On March 9, 1979 I was living on a small hobby farm in what was then "the country". It was the farm my husband's father's nanny's brothers farmed beginning in the late 1800's. Great Aunt Laura was old when I met her - but she had spirit and kn... Read more

First I want to thank all of you who gave me such sound advice. Pretty much in line with what I would have said myself if it were advice to someone else. Not sure why it's so hard to do what's right for myself sometimes but that's a problem fo... Read more

If you read my last blog you'll know that I just saw my primary care doctor for what I thought was a rather insulting annual physical. I tried to tell her that I had been sick for almost 2 weeks and was now at a place where I couldn't really ea... Read more

I went this morning to see my Doctor for my Annual Checkup. This was my first Annual since I've been on Medicare and I have to say, I'm not pleased. She "had" to ask me a series of what I would call rather unnecessary questions like: do you h... Read more

I think my doctor will be happy to see a weight loss from last year - 15 pounds. Less than I had hoped for but more than nothing! A big step for me. She will also be happy to hear that I'm exercising enough to keep my knees working better for... Read more
