Why do some pet owners insist on dressing their cats? Cats wearing clothes lose their balance. Why do some pet owners dress dogs in tight attire? Why do some pet owners remember to put on their coats on frigid days, but forget dog's coat? "American's Funniest Videos" is not funny. Some of those people submitted videos should be arrested.

What son my mind? A blood sugar of 326 for 24 hours now despite so much insulin my eyes are floating. I get that diabetes is tough, believe me after 39 years I get it. But if I had to pick RA or diabetes., I am taking diabetes. Now that is a mouthful to say form a guy who hates, I mean hates diabetes.

Oh and just when i was feeling sorry for my self yesterday, In comes an MS patient for in infusion. Want a dose of realty sit next to her and be pretty upset about RA. Once you put all of that together I guess we are doing pretty good.

Just been to my daughters for a great lunch and back to our apartment for a snooze before church 7.30pm. Car temp was 37c and the humidity made it like a Luisianna swamp outside ha ha! Even the street paving is pushing up as the land dries out! But hay, I love the warm summers. It's great for my bones!
I wish I could meet some of you guys one day. Your all such a treasure to have around! Dont worry be happy!
