Meet and Greet
Saying for the day- There is nothing worse than a bad doctor.
Next Tuesday we have a "meet and greet" with a possible doctor. We have never had to do this before. In Crystal when we came there was no choice. You took the doctor that was there and that was that. But now we have to find a doctor. I have no idea what questions to ask in a “meet and greet session. So I am drawing up a list and thinking about it . Here are my questions so far.
1. How many of your patients died last year?
2. How cold are your hands?
3. Are you gay?
4. How much do you drink?
5. What kind of vacation time do you take?
6. What is the person like who covers for you when you are gone?
7. Which hospital takes your patients?
8. Do you know everything?
9. Have you ever made a mistake?
10. How many law suits are pending against you?
Those should be good for ice breakers.
What do you think?
News from Pigeon Falls– the little town in my garage where the trains still run and people are happy most of the time– Mrs. Trumble sent a registered letter to the ACLU. It reads as follows. “ Dear ACLU, Drop dead! I’ve broken no laws. Don’t fight with me or you’ll be sorry.
M rs. J.W. Trumble, Mayor Pigeon Falls “
Eino tried to talk her into a gentler, kinder, letter but she ignored him. She says that she knows what she is doing and she won’t lose.
Nancy says that the people coming into the coffee shop are all supporting Mrs. Trumble. They like the manger scene and don’t want it removed. The conflict is selling lots of coffee.
Nobody has seen the white rabbit or the dragon since well before Christmas. People sort of miss them. Mrs. Trumble says if they show up again she won’t miss them. She is going to get the council to end Tommy’s silly law so she can shoot the White Rabbit.
Tommy says that he may have made a mistake giving an old lady power like that. But then she is doing well in everything else.
Petrovich has gone to Russia , for his retreat, to study some manuscripts in an old monastery. He is still convinced the truth lies in those driblets. But he wants to see the originals and not a copy.
Tommy and Eino want to meet with Dr. Fortress because he has to know what they know about the occupation. So far he has argued that he is too busy to meet with them.
One wonders what the new year will hold for Pigeon Falls. Will the town learn what Eino and Tommy know. Will the hermit thing ever be explained. Will Petrovich return? And what about Mrs. Schmidt?

Did some blogging today. found out we are losing Starbender who has brought laughter to our dull lives. She has taken a new job. She will be missed. Betty and I went food shopping. It is always interesting to see how nice people are to a man with a walker. Tomorrow we may go to Green Bay and visit my grandchildren. May take my grandaughter to a movie. Well I need a breathing treatment.
