My apartment is in an alcove and the barking echoes and bounces off the walls.
There is always something with you, isn't there?

So true. All I want is to live a nice quiet life. Last night I wanted to kill that dog. I found out this morning the dog does not like to be left alone. That is why it was barking. It didn't stop until my neighbor and her daughter came back. I am so glad they didn't go on vacation.

Right now I am waiting for the nurse. All I wanted was for Winthrop to make an appointment for me for a mammogram. It has been ten years or maybe even more since I had one. If there is something there, we can go from that point. But Winthrop is turning it into a big thing. It could be that the spot is sore simply because I sleep on my left side.

This is why I don't tell them everything. The blow everything out of proportion. I am not a stupid person. I did manage to raise five healthy kids to adulthood. They need to give me some breathing room health wise. Right now I have dry eyes from the cataract surgery. The surgeon said that may happen. If it does then I need to have prescription drops. If I tell Winthrop I need the drops, they will send me back to the surgeon for a complete workup. So I just do without them. I will call the eye clinic in town and make my own appointment. They won't know a thing until they get the prescription via the computer.

When I first join ESP they sent me to every specialist except GYN. And that is only because I have had a hysterectomy.

I just finished polishing off a plate of beans on toast.
Watching US of Bacon on the Destination channel made me hungry.

Thank your lucky stars you don't live next to our neighbors. They have two dogs, a huge "WOOF-WOOF" Great Pyrenees (she's beautiful, so she has that going for her) and a smaller "yap-yap" Pomeranian. They used to go out for the day, after leaving the dogs out, and not come back for hours. I felt so bad for the dogs when it would rain. Sure they had doghouses - but they were out of reach since the dogs were on chains shorter than the distance to the houses. They've also gone away for a weekend, windows open, some friend looking in on the dogs - but I didn't know that when the dogs barked straight from about 2:00 AM to 3:30 AM. I called the police to do a wellness check because I thought someone had killed the people! Nope, the windows were left up for the lonely dogs because the weather was too hot to open up. It's a pity when the animals in the house are smarter than the humans. Ya can't fix stupid...

I live in a condo community of townhouses. Lots of people in a relatively small area. As a result. when a dog is a barker, it's an issue for several neighbors. The condo board regularly has to deal with irate owners who have been fined claiming their dog didn't bark or wasn't left out unattended etc.
