I highlighted this Piece in my July Newsletter and also told the following story.  If you get the Newsletter you can skip over this and head 'straight for the clouds'!  :)


A LITTLE STORY ...

DOCTOR: "So ... tell me, exactly what happened."

PATIENT: "Well, I got up and couldn't walk. My legs were like rubber. I had a headache and felt a little nauseous."

DOCTOR: "Then what did you do?"

PATIENT: "I got myself to a chair and sat down."

DOCTOR: "Sat down? For how long?"

PATIENT: "Two hours. I thought it would pass."

DOCTOR: "Two hours?!!"

PATIENT: "Well ... when it didn't, I called my regular Doctor. They said to come right in. So, I called a neighbor and he took me in."

DOCTOR: "Why didn't you call an Ambulance?"

PATIENT: "Ambulance? I didn't think I was Ambulance material."

DOCTOR: "You didn't think you might be having a stroke?"

PATIENT: "My husband just had a stroke a year ago ... I wasn't going to play off of that!"

DOCTOR: "Do you know the difference between a Moron and an Idiot?"

PATIENT: "Is that a Polish Joke ...?"

DOCTOR: Silence. Evil Eye. "Well, just so you know. You've had a stroke."

And yes, that was an actual conversation. :) And yes, that was me being asked if I knew the difference between a moron and an idiot. (Actually ... they are synonymous. :) And, fortunately, it was just a little stroke. A TIA. No major damage. When I'm tired I walk like I've had a few too many without the pleasure of having had a few too many. Now, tell me, how fair is that? :(

So, above is just another little warning ... Pay Attention to what your body is telling you. Of course, this is obviously a 'Do as I say, not as I do' moment.

CLOUDS OF THE DAY ...



DUMBO !! 

If you are not sure who he is, he has been around since about 1941 ~ an oldie but goody.  He resides at Disneyworld now, in the form of a ride.  Not too many places have flying elephants hanging out these days.

God is really only another artist. He invented the giraffe, the elephant and the cat. He has no real style, He just goes on trying other things.
~ Pablo Picasso



Happy August!!
