Flower Bed Damage

I should have said ... the damage was from our wonderful freeze-thaw-freeze-again Cleveland weather. That and the wannabe-handyman-former-owner that thought he knew how to remodel and didn't have a clue. The flower boxes didn't have drainage tubes and were not built well. They LOOKED fine, unless you started looking closely ... too bad we didn't look close enough before we bought the house.
Actually it's fine w/ me that the wall fell. I have wanted it gone for 2 yrs and this spring I was planning on ripping it out anyway ... now it HAS to be done :)
We also have to have a huge tree removed .... anyone know of a good tree service? Let me know ... it's too big for us to do.

Serious as a heart attack

First, I want to thank all the people that have emailed, sent flowers, cards, phone calls and well wishes. It has really helped me get thru this bump in the road.
Second, You know your a knitting junky when your in the ER having a heart attack and you ask the nurse not to put the IV in the back of your hand because it would interfere with your knitting. (Is there a Bitch Badge for that?lol) Then get annoyed when she doesn't listen. Ever hopeful, I guess :)
I have to incorporate some serious life style changes ... healthy diet, exercise and not taking things so f'ing seriously. Seriously.
I'm thinking that if I put this nitroglycerin patch on the back of my hand ... I'll be able to crochet faster ... maybe I'll try that another day. lol :D
I'll post pics of the flowers tonight :)
Be well and thank you,

Do it. I dare you. I double dare you. I double crochet dare you.

So, while visiting Erin at the NASA study I was busy working on a Granny Square baby blanket (very cute by the way, pics later). I caused me to wonder how big the worlds largest granny square is.
Where do we go for all the answers of the universe, Google of course.
Put down your coffee and go pee first .. then google: worlds largest granny square
there .. I dare you. And if you live to tell about it ... let me know.
hehehehe

Wallgreens SUCK

My doc called in a script today to Walgreens for 3 pills (5400Pearl Rd, Parma), not a drug I normally take. My husband just went to pick them up. $12 for ONE, however if I buy 30 it's $20.
so ... $12 each or 70 CENTS each ...
If someone told me this story, I would have a VERY hard time believing it.
I was told the extra expense was a 'dispensing fee' It seems to me that it would be more to dispense 30 pills than to dispense 1. I was told that the lower the number of pills, the higher the fee.
I'm appalled, amazed ... and ... w/o medication. I just sent him back to return it, I have no idea if they will take it. Can they even dispense a medication that has been returned? I don't know.
The pharmacist name is Jackie Parson, I'm not sure of the spelling, she said her name rather quickly. Their phone number is 440.886.6233
Please call Walgreens and complain. This is just criminal in my opinion.
I'd love to know if you do :)
Thanks!
