Adventure before dementia

Still Fighting The Bugs - And The Winter Coat

The doctor has put me on penicillin for the chest infection and steroids for the asthma - Whether i shall be well enough to play in my concert tomorrow night I don't know - but I do need to be 200% for next Friday's concert - Don't I? (Squeeeeeeee)

I think that DJ knows I was feeling poorly - as he was the far side of his field and only walked 1/3rd of the way across to meet me - making me walk further than normal!  His winter coat is still coming out and if I didn't know better I would say that it was re-growing, as there still seems a lot more to go!

We went out with Toni and Badger, although did also bump into Ros and Rags, so had a chat with them.  We didn't go far - only a couple of miles overall, but back via the unused field on their land for a short canter.

So a good ride, as ever - and the fresh air must be good for my lungs, even if DJ loose hair isn't!

Adventure before dementia

Something Silly

I was sent this by a friend today - so thought I would share it.  I had seen it before - but is certainly worth seeing again - Hope it gives you a giggle!

In the hospital the relatives gathered in the waiting room, where their family member lay gravely ill.

Finally, the doctor came in looking tired and sombre.

"I'm afraid I'm the bearer of bad news," he said as he surveyed the worried faces.

"The only hope left for your loved one at this time is a brain transplant.  It's an experimental procedure, very risky but it is the only hope.  Insurance will cover the procedure, but you will have to pay for the brain  yourselves."

The family members sat silent as they absorbed the news. After a great length of time, someone asked, "Well, how much does a brain cost?"

The doctor quickly responded, "$5,000 for a male brain, and $200 for a female brain."

The moment turned awkward. Men in the room tried not to smile, avoiding eye contact with the women, but some actually smirked.

A man unable to control his curiosity, blurted out the question everyone wanted to ask,

"Why is the male brain so much more?"

The doctor smiled at the childish innocence and explained to the entire group, "It's just standard pricing procedure. We have to mark down the price of the female brains, because they've actually been used."
