I almost got myself a white-tailed doe down the block the other night, ran out between some cars.

I'm hoping it's like anything, Bea, the more you prepare the less you need it.
I hope I never see him again. I'm not holding my breath though. I'll probably startle him when I least expect it.

Oh dear, I need to call 911. I am in a lot of pain in my left arm and across my chest. I can barely tell the dispatcher the information. Fortunately they have E911 Enhanced. That means my name and location show up on their screen. I have already taken two hits with the liquid nitro. Didn't help one bit. Paramedics arrive. I can get to the buzzer to let them in. Thank God they have oxygen. I can't breath deep enough to get it into me. They do an EKG right there. Not good news. "Adele we have to take you to the Tufts ER. They are the closest and can give you the emergency care you need right away." I am in no condition to argue. Just make this pain stop! They start a line in the ambulance. "Adele on a scale on one to ten, where is the pain?" TEN! They open the line so it is flowing faster. I start to feel a little better. Pain level is down to a seven. They decide I can make it to BMC, which is my hospital. It is only a half mile further.

Everything in there was a whirl. I don't remember much. Twelve hours later they send me up to the floor. I had, had a heart attack. I am fine now.

And I am home. Taking it easy. As Spike is pulling up to the building, there are two fire engines outside the building and the alarm is going off like crazy. Just what I needed. The elevator is on the first floor and out of service except to the fire department and medical personnel. So I sit outside until it is safe to go inside. The woman in #208 had pizza in the oven and fell asleep. She is in her mid 90's. More and more she is losing ground. I hate to say it but she needs to go to an assisted living facility. I am in Apt. #213. You can smell the smoke all over the second floor.

I used to think once I was retired and all the kids were out on their own, I would have a nice quiet serene life. Silly me!
Take care of yourself Addie! Hope you are feeling better soon!

I made csipetke to go with the Hungarian goulash. It has been boiling for 50 minutes and isn't ready yet. Smaller ones next time. I'm getting hungry.

I'm watching The Adventures of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert. I both read the book and saw A Clockwork Orange, I agree, Pac, very weird.

As is Priscilla, Queen of the Desert, though maybe not quite as weird. Now I wish I'd taped it, I really liked it.

I basking in the aura of my baseball team's resounding win over that other team from Tampa. It's looking good for the Red Sox.
