Dead Dog Cat

(no subject)

While having lunch yesterday, I finished reading a recent novel by Mike Resnick called The Doctor and the Dinosaurs that manages to mix his brand of Weird Western fiction with the true tale of the rivalry of two paleontologists that advanced said science by a hundred years in our non-fiction world. As have all the books in this series (shown through the eyes of Doc Holliday), this was an amusing read.

Busy as I was all last week, I guess I didn't say much. I'd get home too late to do much more than just clear a few things off the DVR, eat and sleep.

Friday night, though, we met with members of the Havurah. We didn't have enough in attendance for services, but we did share a potluck meal, and some wonderful conversation that kept us chatting until rather late. Very nice! Thanks, Molly, for hosting!

Once I got home, and my wife returned from Amy's Farm, I put on a Netflix disc of The Dallas Buyers Club; I remembered those days and how medical personnel would react to patients with AIDS. It reminded of how long it's been since I last made a diagnosis of HIV positivity, and how long it's been since one of my patients died of AIDS. We've come a long way in the last thirty years...

Oh, and congratulations on your engagement, Tim and Helen! I'm so happy for you both!
