I'm up, I'm up.  I slept right through the night.  Much to do before Skip E. Lowe.

I had a problem with my central a/c unit last week, but I've had more luck than you DR Cillaliz.  The fan was running but the air wouldn't cool.  The a/c man came yesterday afternoon and attached some kind of jump-start kit to the compressor and it's as good as new.  Plus the a/c man was a cool drink of water himself.

Yes, you had much more luck. The jump start thing didn't and the compressor wouldn't start at all, even after cooling over night. The a/c is over 30 years old so it's also very inefficient....plus the a/c man "has a nice personality"  and likes to sing along to the country songs on his radio.   That makes me smile...he seems to enjoy his job and seems to know what he's doing.

I really must get some work done. It's very humid but overcast, I really did luck out on getting the unit replaced today.  Tomorrow is supposed to start the heat wave

Those of a more progressive bent will get a hoot out of Sunday's   Candorville comic.

Go to site, click on "Read the Comics" and then select 9 July.

yes, DRMBARNUM....you are correct....Mr John Saxon was introduced in the final billing sequence as an "exciting new screen personality" in THE UNGUARDED MOMENT, and he did very well!

In the movie SIMONE, about a computer-genereated figure called Simone, does anyone remember whether the credits actually said "introducing Simone as Herself?"

Elmore! Good vibes for your family and your trip home. I guess the abcess is tweaking, to illustrate what a pain in the ass all this has been... always check your metaphors!

Best of travel wishes for all of the HHWs on trips either to home and away from home: DRs Elmore, Rodzinski and TPunk, Jane, and any others I've forgotten.

Sorry about the health issues, DR Elmore. I'll keep the good thought that it isn't what you fear.

Thanks, DR Matt H!  The only good thing is that if it is the same form of abscess in the other hip, this time he can't diagnose it.  I've already made the appointment for 3:30 on Thursday, and he will hopefully refer me right to the surgeon to lance it.

I just had a bowl of the most delicious potato soup my sister-in-law made last night, and tonight's dinner smells so good, I'm tempted to change flights to tomorrow.  Alas, it's not to be.

In about 20 minutes, I'm off to Dayton for the flight.  My youngest brother Randy is driving me.  I wanted my dad to come along, but he's got his home care nurse arriving after I leave.  It's been raining here, so I called US Air to confirm the flight was on.   It was the same sort of weather on my last visit, and we landed in NYC on time.

I hear security in NYC is tightening after the Indian railway bombings today, so I hope it's not to bad getting back to Manhattan.

My next post should be from home.

Or so SHE says!

Her ex-husband's widow says Esther had a tendancy to 'stretch' the truth now and then.  She would often come over in the afternoon saying she needed to fix dinner to take home for "the kids" and proceed to do a bit of cooking at their house and drink a LOT of their booze.  8)

DR elmore:

-Good Health Vibes to Your Father.

-Good Mental Health Vibes to Your Family.  ;)

-Good Travel Vibes to You.  *Do you need someone to pick you up at the airport?

-And I'll see Marcy and Zina and Friday, so.. :)

DR Jose, do you want to come out to LaGuardia?  I'm on flight 2448 scheduled to arrive around 6:34 pm.  I figure by the time I pick up the bag from bagcheck, it will be close to 7 PM!  I'll look for you, and if I don't see you, I'll grab a taxi!

The IMDB reports:

Quote
In the original theatrical release, Simone was credited "as herself". In subsequent versions of the film, this was changed to "and introducing Rachel Roberts as Simone."

Good Afternoon!

DR elmore - If I see you at La Guardia, I'll see you at La Guardia.  They're predicting some pretty severe thunderstorms for this afternoon and evening, so...  If they end up messing up the car traffic, I hope they don't end up delaying your flight back home.  I'll check USAir's site for any delays.
