just got back from a fantastic vacation on marco island, florida. the weather was great, the food was great, and the fishing was even better.

pics to follow when i upload the camera.

we were so impressed by the island that dw convinced me to get my resume together and look for jobs in sw florida. i know it'll be a huge change, but what the heck. i can always fly to see my family and for snow vacations. it'll all come down to salary, most likely.

Welcome back, BT! Can't wait to see the pics. What kind of fishing did you get into?


Got out this morning to shoot the final flight for this behemoth. Got goose bumps watching it

I am sitting here at the 'puter and listening to the TV in the background. Every so often I get up to stretch and do a little cleaning. There are only a few pieces of silver in the sink. Not worth wasting hot water on. They can wait until I get more to add to them. Again, I have to empty the waste baskets.

I noticed again they changed one of my pills. I wish they would tell me when they do this. It took me a half hour to find the one I was looking for on the net. After having two episodes with this pharmacy, one that almost killed me, I get very nervous when they make a change. I have a ritual that I have to go through every day checking the name of the pharmacist, and checking the pills against the list and pics I have down loaded and printed from the net. I definitely don't trust them. Unfortunately, I don't have a choice of pharmacies here. It is the one that goes with the Elderly Service Plan.

Every month they send me supplies that they think I will need. Right now I have 5,000 lancets. I keep telling them don't send me any more, but they still come. So they are going back this week. I haven't opened any of the boxes. And I don't care if they can't use them. Maybe they will get the message. I will call when I need something. Jeesh.

Same thing happened to me with insulin and needles...I wasn't using them, but they kept sending them. Luckily I had a friend whose mother could use them and she was paying out of pocket.
