Giving thanks to our Veterans today   I’m not sure how Veterans Day turned into a Friday holiday and a day to sell stuff, but then, most every holiday has turned into a day for stores to run “sales”.  Possibly, the original intent was to give our veterans a break but it has sure morphed …

  Today I am thankful that the skunk already passed by when I took Mimi out for a walk a couple days ago! It’s so not fair! I can’t smell lots of flowers or perfumes but I can smell a skunk blocks away.

I am thankful, believe it or not, that I had Cushing’s. Mind you, I wouldn’t want to have it now, although diagnoses and surgeries seem “easier” now.   Having Cushing’s taught me a lot, including how to stick up for myself, how to read medical books to learn more about my disease, how to do …
