Rambling thoughts

This old body required another trip to see another doctor and I came home looking like a clown with spots dotting the face. After months of wondering just when zits or ingrown whiskers would heal and clear up I decided maybe it was time to have them checked out. No conclusions were established but biopsy's were taken and I came home with holes in my face and waiting outcome of lab results.
Getting old has its ups and downs, its great to get discounts on certain venues but as the saying goes "My can do can't keep up with my want to"seems to be more prevalent with each passing day.
With the state of California now issuing IOU's and it appears a mass exodus will soon be taking place, the greed of the wealthy just seems to be expanding. Many elderly and low income families live in Mobile home parks, their home may be paid for but they still have to rent the ground it sits on. If they are lucky they may live in a community that has local government controlled rent control keeping their housing cost within budget. Some of the property owners who are big corporations continually try to overturn rent controls with court battles, causing anxiety and mental stress to the elderly on very low incomes. It becomes more obvious that these corporations would like to round up the elderly, handicapped, and minimum wage earners and march them to the cliffs overlooking the Pacific Ocean and watch them fall off.


  1. Ain't getting old grand? Pfffft. I think you make a good point about how many feel about the elderly, handicapped and minimum wage earners. Disgusts me actually that people feel this way. Keep thinking positive thoughts about the lab results and let us know. Aloha :)

  2. Remember Dad, don't worry until you know that you need to, otherwise you waste whatever energy your old bones has left! Ha ha!

    I was just complaining about how bad it's getting here in the Golden State. Looks like the gold is becoming quite tarnished these days. Honestly, I don't know how we're going to turn this place around for the better. I don't see it happening for quite a while, though.
