I’ve had a busy day. Walgreens screwed up again. My Providence Medicare Advantage Plan had told them that it was too soon to refill my Prednisolone drops until September 2. That does me no good, when I need them for my 8/28 cataract surgery. The problem was that it is unusual to schedule both eyes so close together, which we did to accommodate Wendy’s schedule. I called Christine’s Assistant. She called the plan, and they approved it. Walgreens is sending it overnight delivery and paying the extra shipping, because they should have called me and let me know there was a problem. Later Christine’s Assistant called and changed Tuesday’s follow up appointment from mid-afternoon to early morning. I scheduled my Lift ride for that appointment. Store to Door called for my grocery order for delivery tomorrow. I called Providence Home Services to reorder diabetes test strips and lancets. I called my sharps container company to come exchange a two gallon container of used insulin syringes tomorrow. And I called my Providence prescription review for Thursday. I researched today’s articles, and since there was not enough time for my morning cat nap, I spent 45 minutes at the site trying to clean up our TAGS. I only got through G. It’s another 90° day. Tomorrow and Thursday will be cooler. After that, we have at least ten days on the 90°s. ARGH! Would you believe that I’m tired?

Today’s took me 4:05 (average 8:58). To do it, click here. How did you do?
Small children have short attention spans. Being far less mature than a small child, Trump was easily distracted by bright shiny Nazis. While I agree with Keith about Trump, I reiterate: it’s a Republican problem! RESIST!!
Barf Bag Alert!!
Long before Trump, using threats of violence had become just a normal part of politics: Republican politics. It’s a Republican problem! RESIST!!
From The New Yorker: Trump’s demonstrable inability to spell even the simplest words has reassured many that he lacks the aptitude to correctly enter the nuclear launch codes entrusted to the President of the United States.
While millions of Americans have lost sleep over the thought of Trump being anywhere near the nuclear codes, his failure to spell such words as “heal” and “tap” suggests that mastering a more complicated sequence of letters or numbers would be well above his grade level.
“Giving one person the power to launch the most destructive nuclear arsenal in the world has always been problematic,” Harland Dorrinson, the director of the Society for Nuclear Security, said. “In their infinite wisdom, the American people have solved that problem by electing someone whose brain would be utterly flummoxed by the task.”
Andy, that’s cute, but it’s actually much easier. For a nuclear attack, Trump need only read and recite two letters. RESIST!!
