Let's face it, won't you worry when we are floating around in a canoe amids all those crocodills? What about the piranas? The mosquitoes?

A little of this and that and even some diabetes.

The sun is shining! Isn't that terrific? for weeks it seemed that the sun had left us for good.
The big thing for the last two weeks has been having a cold for Johanna (my legal wife) and for me (her legal husband). LOL. Like to keep everything legal eh! That cold hangs on and it feels like it has to wear off over time. But NO FLU! Some good news anyway.
Took a shower this morn! The trouble with that is that it make you completely wet! All wet!
At least in the rain outside you can employ a umbrella. So I got in trouble with the "BOSS"
when I stepped in the shower with my trusted umbrella. She grabbed it right out of my hands. Violent she is, don't you think? But then on the other side when I finished, there she was with a big bathtowel drying my back. That is all she is allowed to do! No sense making a woman excited eh? After that, we had a nice cuppa coffee with real grinded coffee beans.
If you don't grind them you miss the boat! More water than coffee.

In the diabetes section ect. things have settled down a bit. I test about 5 times per day now. Used to do it 10 times per day. My fingers are turning black so the change. What I do do (2 do's see!) To do or not to do…LOL. Todelo? Should set it to music. So , what I was doing now is that I use my thumpies on either side to stick the lancet in, One at the time. I never used them before but it bleeds better than my fingers. Often I have blood on my hands!
Why? Because it leaks longer! It took me by surprise! I would like a 2 months holiday from this meds business. Heck if I don't deserve it, no-on does. Both my eyes have glaucoma but I hope to keep it in check with the drops. I will probably live! If not…it was nice knowing you all! Will I live after the end or beginning of the month?? That's a good question right? Will see…

Glad, as always, to hear from you JB!
You most definately need to be wary of those pesky skeeters. West Nile Virus caused me more complications than Diabetes has (so far). I'm sure you meant other pesky things than just skeeters though.
