The Journey Begins

Tuesday, June 13th, 2017

Well, 5 months into a 6 month pre-qualification and it’s becoming real.  Workbook ordered.  More research to do.  I’m excited, nervous and a little fearful. But I can do this.  I have to do this.  This is for me, to save my own life. Not a lot of people know, and not a lot will.  They will judge, be rude, heartless and not bother to try to understand.  So it’s not their business.

I’m impatient for the end result, but know it will take time.

In other news, I have the opportunity to pick up a car I have always wanted.  Not the year I’ve always wanted but a restored VW bug can be extremely pricey and if it’s a true restore, the engine sucks.  I don’t have the kind of money to put the Porche engine in one so…..  newer model it is if I can swing it.  Never thought much of the color on this one until now.  Going to look at it this weekend and see what I can do.

nothing earth shattering today.  Just random musings of the Littlehawke…..






people that scare me

Tuesday, June 13th, 2017

You know, a lot of health care professionals scare the daylights out of me.  A few months ago a lady came in with a cat who had a femural fracture.  It was compound, con-minuted and open. It had been open for several days so the bone was dead.  It was either amputate or put the animal to sleep.  And said health care professional asked:  “Can’t you just PIN it?”  yeah.   sure.  then in 72 hours watch the wound go septic, kill the cat with an agonizing death.

Physicians are the worst. Nurses are up there too.  Not all, but a great many.

Then there are the people who take a few classes in psychology and couch-diagnose you in such a condescending manner that you just walk away and cut your losses.  I had to do that with a gaming friend not long ago.  Her self-righteous crap was just a little too much for me. I was sad about it at first. Now I just don’t give a fuck.
