Last year a friend of mine became an advocate for having a colonoscopy after 50. They found something and she had to have some treatments but all is well now. When you hit 50 all kinds of new experiences, aches, pains or pains in the butt so to speak start happening. I have been avoiding such a procedure but finally gave in and scheduled one on my third Friday off. Great way to spend a day off don't you think. NOT! The prep Thursday was the worst part. At least I was able to add a Crystal Lite flavor pack. So I was drinking a 1/2 gallon mixture that tasted like waterd down salty lemonade. So refreshing. Yeah right. Me and needles do not work well together. They had to poke me 4 different times before the IV would stay and not blow out. My hands are now bruised. Lucky me. The procedure itself I don't remember a thing. I got a clean bill of health from my doctor so I'm good for 10 years. Preventative health care is better than waiting to find out it's too late or you have to have major treatments of any kind. So my advice is if you're over 50 and haven't had a colonoscopy go do it now. Get it over with and be worry free.
Last nite for dinner we met up with our friends the Harpers at The Cisco Salsa Company in Tomball. Mmmm maybe it was an off day for the bartender but the Margarita was terrible. David had to send it back. That's a first. Our food was only so so. Actually it was very bland. The cheese dip was rather tasteless and over cooked. Now the salsa and chips were Yum. After dinner we went out and sat on the patio for a beer and wine while listening to the music. The guy sang several Marty Robins, Johnny Cash and other songs. He wasn't bad at all. But right now I'm not sure the chips, salsa and the music are enough to get me back. Maybe on a cooler evening I might go back to listen to the live music and have a drink or two. Sorry Harpers we didn't steer you in the right direction for food but hey the company was good. But now we know.
Wasn't in a picture taking mode this past week so you got more words than pictures. I'll try to make up for it on my next post.
So until next post....A good friend is a connection to life - a tie to the past, a road to the future, the key to sanity in a totally insane world. ~Lois Wyse~
