Yet another trip to town. Aargh. A hurry-up-and-wait day getting x-rays, more lab work, and a pre-op pep talk. Everything took longer than expected; however, the hospital was air conditioned so the waiting was bearable and I had a good book (always travel with a book). I did stop to vote on the way.
Dang it! I missed getting the trash down to the big road again last night and even at 5:30 this morning, I was too late. Joys of country living.
