Do you know the song reference? Kudos if you do. I hate when somebody does that. In my mind I’m singing the song from Hee Haw……”Where oh where, are you tonight? Why’d you leave me here all alone? I searched the world over and thought I’d found true love. You met another and phhhlttt, you was gone.” If that doesn’t bring a tear to your eye, I don’t know what will. If you can’t come up with the title song reference, you are forgiven. I’ll probably forget by the end of this post.
I went for my annual exam. The one all women look forward to with the same amount of joy and excitement as we do tooth extraction. They greeted me like an old friend. Well, I sorta am. This guy found something suspicious when I first went to him. This was 8-10 years ago. To make sure we were doing all we could for my health care, he stayed late after the exam and asked me to stay, too. He tested the strange something or other while I waited. He also made time for extra tests. It turned out to be nothing. Thank God. But, this was enough for me to trust this doctor completely. This guy is my OB-GYN and will be as long as possible. The thing is, when I went in his nurse smiled at me and said, “Cynthia (my given name), do you know how long it has been since you came last?” I said I thought it had been two years, but was told it was three. Kami said “No, dear, it’s been since September, 2004”. I was floored. After the exam, my doctor told me that he would “see me in one year.” Kami said the same thing and we all smiled. Lord, help me. I thought it had been at most two years. I’m losing my mind and I don’t even miss it.
I know they aren’t very pretty, but they are my babies and they are the most beautiful in the world. They were also the sweetest most meaty tomatoes I have ever eaten. It looks like a paltry harvest from here, but, no matter. We will love and eat every single fruit we harvest. Wish us luck with the sweet potatoes. I hear they are a bear to grow.
No real knitting to report. I knit a bit for yesterday on Sleeve I, but it was not much. Instead, I had other fun. See above story. And, to end this post, I want to help you out with the title. It’s from Pink Floyd. It is not my soundtrack. It’s kinda hard to hum and sing along with Pink Floyd. No, my soundtrack today is this:
Edwin Starr singing the Vietnam War era song “War”. Have a good one!
