Helicopter on Mars

I wanted to post this a few days ago, but just getting around to it. There’s other videos out there, but this is the best I’ve found.

the link above is a re-tweet I re-tweeted on Twitter. If you follow me, I’ll follow you. Just let me know.

It’s almost Friday!

Checkup Check OK

I got an ok on my checkup. They changed my blood pressure medication. It wasn’t really an “Executive” checkup, just a regular one, like a ditchdigger checkup. Same as I get (almost) every year. I was disappointed. The facility is nice though. And this morning, I’m drinking COFFEE!

Have a happy hump day!

“Executive Checkup”

Health City Hospital, Cayman Islands

Today I’m going to Health City for an “executive physical”. Supposedly a very extensive checkup. It was promoted by our health insurance.

Health City is this new big hospital that continues to grow in the hopes of one day becoming a destination for medical tourism. They have a very good reputation.

So, I have to leave home early to get there, with no breakfast (OR COFFEE!). That’s the whole test, if you can survive with no coffee for halfa day, you’re fine.

I feel like they’re not going to find anything major wrong with me, but you never know. Maybe I should have saved yesterdays post for tomorrow…

Have an extra cuppa coffee for me this morning please!

Helluva 10 Days

I’ve had a hell of a 10 days.

Last Saturday, (not day-before-yesterday, a week before that) I went to one of my best friends’s funeral.

Last Sunday, my wife told me she doesn’t love me anymore and wants a divorce.

Last week I went to a counsellor with the wife and felt like they were both ganged up on me.

I kind of had a meltdown at work after that because I’ve been feeling ignored, not part of the team, and when everyone, everyone except me. left to go to a meeting. I figure my same insanity that makes me invisible at work is the same insanity that makes my wife want to leave.

Last Friday, I took my cat to the vet and found out she had lymphoma (cancer) and there was nothing that could be done to save her. She wasn’t in pain, so I brought her home to live her life. She almost immediately disappeared and I assume she’s gone forever.

Things probably can’t get worse, but it might. I have an “executive physical” tomorrow, A very intensive physical exam. I think I’m ok but you never know.

But overall, I gotta be near the valley floor, sstarting to climb high again. Have a good week!

BTK Big Belly

Our cat, BTK (pronounced beeteekee) Seems to feel fine, but hre belly has swollen as big as a honeydew melon. This morning, when I fed them (we have 5 outdoor cats) I grabbed her and put her in a kennel to take to the vet today. I made her an appointment yesterday.) I know it’s for her own good, but I hope she’s not mad at me when we get back home. I also hope there’s not much wrong with her that a simple pill or shot won’t fix.

BTK is the mother of most of our cats, probably about 12 years old. She was always so good to her children, letting them have her food after they ate all theirs, even when they got older. My mentor for keeping an even temper. I’ll be glad when I get her home, safe and healthy.

It’s FRIDAY! Yeay!Have a good weekend!

Second Monday

Yesterday was a holiday Wednesday for the election. Today seems like the second monday this week. Glad tomorrow is the second Friday this week. I am very tired right now. I closed my eyes and could have fallen asleep while walking the dogs this morning.

Here’s a picture of Ashy, our cat, taken yesterday. She’s resting up for bedtime.

I’ll be perusing the election results today, but at first glance this morning, seems like we did coulda done better.

Election Day (tomorrow)

Tomorrow is election day here in the Cayman Islands. I’m know who I’m voting for.

Last night we went to a rally for one of the candidates. Very lively and interesting.

I stayed up way late last night and got up way early. I am sleepy this morning.

Cloudy skies today, but probably won’t rain.

Ciao!

Not the best holiday

Back to work today after 10 days off, 4 vacation days, 2 holiday days and 4 weekend days. These last few days have been pretty poor.

Flew my first two flights on a Boeing Max 8. Didn’t crash.

Went to my friends funeral Saturday.

I did, after the funeral, have a very nice lunch at a very nice hotel.

Not the best of times for me, but you have a good week!
