I consider two days above freezing with a few patches of blue sky thrown in to be a nice bonus for the middle of January.

With a little coaxing and a couple doggy treats, Pheebs came up the green doggy ramp into the Jeep. We did a little country road drive northeast of our Park before heading home. Pheebs came down the ramp without any hesitation. She's a good girl that one.

My Doctor's office called late last week and said they wanted me to come to Goderich for a CT scan today at 3 p.m. So that is what I did. Apparently a couple years ago when I had a CT scan regarding my prostate cancer they noticed I had a small spot on one of my lungs. Of course, I had totally forgotten about this until the phone call last week. Today's CT Scan was a follow-up to have a look at that spot again to see if it has grown. Just me in the Jeep this afternoon as I headed to Goderich's Alexandra Marine and General Hospital. From the time I walked into the hospital to the time I walked out was a mere ten minutes. The time I spent in the donut-like CT Scanner was less than one minute. Best part about the whole procedure was I didn't have to lose my shorts. Didn't even have to take my winter boots off. This was my third CT scan. My first scan was at a hospital in Tucson Arizona looking for a kidney stone. My second CT scan was in Stratford a few years ago checking my prostate. This third one today in Goderich was to check a spot on my lung.

GROANER'S CORNER:(( A drunk guy in Alaska decides to go ice fishing. So he packs up his stuff and goes out onto the ice. He starts sawing a hole in the ice, and a loud booming voice says, "YOU WILL FIND NO FISH UNDER THAT ICE." The drunk looks up, ignores it, and continues on. The voice repeats, "YOU WILL FIND NO FISH The drunk looks up and says, "Is this you God trying to warn me?" The voice says "NO, I'M THE MANAGER OF THIS ICE RINK."
I can't believe I was arrested for impersonating a politician... I was just sitting there doing nothing.
