Saying for the day: Too soon old. Too late smart.
All my life I have suffered from stupidity, stubbornness , and the inability to take advice. They are some of my least endearing characteristics.
I thought of that as I wrote about the ear infection that almost killed me. It is a good example of this part of my nature.
When I was in high school I got my first infection in that ear because I swam in a lake I was told not to. (Just about everybody that swam there that summer ended up with an ear infection). I ignored good advice because I was stupid, stubborn, and hated to do what I was told.
My local doctor sent me to a specialist who became my ear doctor from that point on.
Every other year or so it would flare up and I would go back to the specialist. He would give me an antibiotic and it would clear up.
Before one of those trips I saw my local doctor who was also a member of the congregation. He said if it was his ear he would have it operated on. Of course , because I was stupid, stubborn, and didn’t take advice, I told him I had a specialist. He said that I should get a new one. I didn’t want to be operated on so I ignored him.
How different things would have been if I had listened.
It takes us so long to learn the things we really need to know.
9850 spins without a prize. Old Hapless pictures lady luck like the fairy in the car commercial. She tries to zap Hapless with some luck and gets knocked flat on her back. The luck just bounces right off. How else does one explain all those spins. Somebody must win. It can't be a total scam. All the luck bounces someplace else. But someday the little fairy will find a hole and hit him with a full dose of luck, It could be tomorrow.
Well Uncle Wiggly lovers of the rain doesn't stop and thus allow Pigeon Falls to come out of the fog and sending Hapless on vacation we will be back tomorrow with another adventure of " as the World Spins"
Looked out the window this morning and there was snow. This is May. We were getting ready to plant flowers. We don't need snow.Another very dull day. We did almost nothing except cough. I really hope it warms up tomorrow. I need a breathing treatment.
