The good news is that I don’t look like Michael Jackson. The bad news is that I don’t exactly look like Christina Applegate. It’s been a little over a week since I had surgery to repair the damage done to my nose earlier this summer when my dog became embodied by a demon, thus, forever in my mind changing him to the Demon Dog.
To recap, the dog, our own docile dog, turned on me, snapped down on my nose and rearranged my face. The surgery was to rebuild the rim of my nose which was a jagged mess. I saw a plastic surgeon four days after the event. He laughed, so I found a different doctor.
There are things you should know if this happens to you:
– Don’t call Mama for solace. She’ll fill your head with statistics on brain infection.
-Shots of novocaine inside the nostril will make you wince.
-Even if you make your spouse go into the surgical room with you, they won’t watch the procedure. They will count floor tiles instead.
-You will not be put asleep for this procedure.
-It’s like having a root canal on the nose.
-Dogs never apologize, not even when they are wrong.
Tim and I had just sat down in the doctor’s office when Tim’s phone rang. It was Ashley. She was calling from the scene of a car wreck. Hers.
Thankfully, Ashley is a careful driver, a defensive one, so she was paying attention when the man with the big rig truck pulled out in front of her. She was driving a Honda Civic — a red one — so not sure how he missed seeing her but he did. She swerved but was still hit by the rig.
The air bag did NOT deploy.
My blood pressure did, however.
Ashley is doing okay. Car shopping. Thanks for your prayers.
Some of you have been emailing me with feedback about the switch to the new location. I appreciate the feedback. Here’s a couple of things you should know:
– you can bookmark the site so that you don’t have to look up the address every time you want to log into the blog.
-you can also sign up at the top of this page for the RSS feed. That’s a subscription to this blog. It will come to your email box whenever I post something. The RSS feed allows you to know when I make a new post.
-Those annoying political ads? I have complained about them. Please understand that any ad you see on this site ever is not something I am endorsing. I don’t have any say so about the ads. Google keeps an ad bank that puts up ads based upon key words taken from my writing. (I was hoping to throw them off course with the Porn post! HA!) Just know that whatever ad you see is NOT my position on anything. For the record, I don’t support political ads no matter what the position.
– Some of you have complained about the Retweet button. That issue can be and will be fixed.
Okay, folks, that’s it for the update.
Now I need something from you… I want to know what were you taught about End Times when you were growing up. Was it talked about at home? At church? Among the lunch crowd at school? Have you ever read Revelation and if so, when did you first read it? What did you think about it?
