Yesterday I arrived at the doctor’s office in time for my appointment, to be met with the news that she had an emergency and would need to reschedule. However, they did know some of what she wanted done for testing, and would I have a seat and hold out my arm.
After feeling similar to a pin cushion, my NEW appointment is for tomorrow – although if there is a cancellation, they will try and get me in today. They also had some pills to take that would help me sleep and not spend all my time coughing. Did they work? Yes, they did.
I will know more tonight, and even more after tomorrow. And, trust me, I am going to be playing “sardines” (see last post) and you will know what’s going on.
This morning I was going through some news sites — and I ran across this wonderful news item. My only question? What else could they use the batter for? …
(June 26, 2007)SCOTT CITY, Missouri – Police said inmates used pancake batter and toothpaste to cover a hole they made to allow a female inmate to slide into the next cell and join a male inmate. Now steel plates are being added to the Missouri jail’s interior walls.
The hole at the Scott City Jail was discovered this weekend, said police Chief Don Cobb. He said inmates removed a block from the wall, after making a digging tool with a nail, a wire from a light fixture and a toothbrush.
The mixture of pancake batter and toothpaste looked like mortar, he said.
Prisoners will stay in a county jail until a security check is completed at the city building.
The city jail’s exterior walls already are reinforced with steel to prevent inmates from escaping, Cobb said.
“Unless they can smuggle in an arc welder, they aren’t getting through that,” he said.
