My favorite apple, the Red Rome. I can find it at only one store nowadays. They have replaced them with all different and new strains of apple. They told me people want the newest ones. Well, I want the old ones. They even have a grape scented one which does smell like grape. Guess it is good for diversity, but I want my Red Rome back.
This tableau was a joke. If you are old enough, you remember your grannie's Tupperware. Don't know if it was sold anywhere besides the US, but every household had Tupperware.
I made this necklace to wear to my first visit with the cardiologist yesterday. My sister went with me and said I couldn't wear that. Then she dared me to. I decided not to in case the doctor wasn't of a certain age as he wouldn't get the joke.
Well, he wasn't - a mere babe, young enough to be my child. But, he made me feel better and scheduled a couple of tests. Just waiting for the insurance to approve them. What I didn't tell you before, is I am at high risk for heart disease. I have Syndrome X and am diabetic, etc. Plus, one of my brothers had sudden cardiac death at age 45. Another had a heart attack last month at age 49 and had stents put in. My sister had a silent heart attack at 36 and has tachycardia. I don't know all the abbreviations and such, but the family history is there.
Here is what was in the little tupperware bowl. Aspirin. I thought it was funny, but now I find out that the little bowl was for pills. Couple of things to pass on. He told me not to take the whole 325 mg. aspirin, but a baby aspirin. And, the recent studies about Prilosec and heart disease in older patients is a misnomer as they still prescribe it for their patients to deal with the effects of their heart meds. I was glad to hear that as I have been taking it for years and can't go without it.
