All is Well in Seattle

It was a long and nightmarish day, but all is well now. My old email account is shut down, I have a new one.

Wanted to share a bit of humor from my old and good friend, Mako. Believe me, after a day like yesterday, I can use a good laugh. Hope you can, too.

The Right Grandma

The doctor that had been seeing an 80-year-old woman for most of her life finally retired. At her next checkup, the new doctor told her to bring a list of all the medicines that had been prescribed for her.

As the young doctor was looking through these, his eyes grew wide as he realized she had a prescription for birth control pills.

'Mrs. Smith, do you realize these are BIRTH CONTROL pills?'

''Yes, they help me sleep at night.''

'Mrs. Smith, I assure you there is absolutely NOTHING in these that could possibly help you sleep!'

She reached out and patted the young Doctor's knee.

"Yes, dear, I know that. But every morning, I grind one up and mix it in the glass of orange juice that my 16-year-old-granddaughter drinks. And, believe me, it helps me sleep at night.

Hmmmm! Too bad that the daughter of you-know-who didn't have nice grandma like this one.
