Chupa lost a spur almost two years ago.  It actually grew back but was curling around and just about to start poking into his leg.  I have been trying to figure out how to deal with this for awhile now and finally decided to try my Dremel tool with a cutting wheel.  Cut off the pointy tip after several attempts while he was perched on my porch.  He kept moving around but didn't seem to mind the procedure (although he specifically stated that he DID NOT want me to paint his toenails too.)  78,87,52,0,B

Still resting easy so I don't pop the plug.  Will be interesting to see how much my insurance company gets billed for this.  I bought a titanium tibial nail just like the one they fixed my leg with for fifty bucks on ebay...my insurance company got billed $9,000 for the one in my leg. 70,83,49,0,C

not a fan of Catholic saints, but...

The Field Lab - Sun, 2017/11/05 - 2:06pm
Saint Isidore of Seville was an amazingly learned man, he was sometimes called “The Schoolmaster of the Middle Ages” because the encyclopedia he wrote was used as a textbook for nine centuries. He required seminaries to be built in every diocese, wrote a Rule for religious orders, and founded schools that taught every branch of learning. Isidore wrote numerous books, including a dictionary, an encyclopedia, a history of Goths, and a history of the world—beginning with creation! He completed the Mozarabic liturgy, which is still in use in Toledo, Spain. For all these reasons, Isidore has been suggested as patron saint of computers and the internet.  (I figured out how to live stream from my drone today.)  
John 1:3  All things were made through him, and without him was not any thing made that was made.

BEWARE

The Field Lab - Thu, 2017/11/02 - 2:54pm
Broke down and bought a cheap smart phone ($48... pre-loaded with 1000 minutes, 2000 text messages, and 2GB of data with 60 days of service) so I can be sure to be able to keep in touch during my little trip back to Odessa for my angiogram.  I didn't have one when I broke my leg and had to borrow one from a nurse to let a friend know my situation right after I got out of surgery.  I haven't owned a cell phone in 9 years.  I never seemed to need one back in my NYC days and the last time I had one on me was when I traveled across country on my move to the desert.  Once I got out here, I noticed I didn't get any service so I chucked it out the window of my truck.  From what I have observed, smart phones are more addictive than prescription pain killers... 81,88,46,0,B

not out of the woods yet...

The Field Lab - Tue, 2017/10/31 - 2:40pm
So I did the long (7 hour) round trip to Odessa yesterday for a 30 minute consult with my cardiologist.  Nothing too horrible from my stress test results - just a tiny blip that may indicate blockage or may just be nothing.  To be on the safe side, I am going back next week for an angiogram.  Seems all my vacations involve a hospital visit now...

To help take my mind off health issues, I had my first chili head visitors today.  Pat comes by every year during chili cook-off season - always wearing his Benita t shirt.  This time he brought Cathy, Zoe (the bee), and Molly (the lady bug).  These are my first official trick or treaters.  Ben and Chupa approved... 62,69,46,0,B

gotta go back...

The Field Lab - Sat, 2017/10/28 - 3:26pm
Got the dreaded call yesterday afternoon that my cardiologist wants to have me back for a followup right away on Monday.  Good news is they didn't suggest I go to the ER immediately.  Bad news is, based on the images from my stress test there might be some blockage to contend with.  I asked if I needed to make immediate plans for a couple of days in the hospital and all they would tell me is that the doctor most likely will want to schedule an angiogram next (the gold standard for detecting blockages in the arterial system).  Best case scenario is that they don't end up finding any blockage.  Second best scenario is that I am only a candidate for balloon angioplasty and/or stent placement - which really isn't so bad considering how common this procedure is.  Worst case scenario would be if I need surgical bypass surgery (which would kind of suck but not really that bad considering how common that procedure is).  Planning on doing the long round trip on Monday (without getting another speeding ticket) for the consult.  Already have my house sitter in place in case I have to stay a couple of days (if they can schedule whatever right away).  59,63,40,0,B
