Sunday Smorgasbord

“She won’t bite you.”

This lady gave me some dog treats and said I could feed her dog out of my hand. Without hesitation it snapped at me, making contact with a finger but fortunately not breaking the skin.

I was violating two rules and should have known better:

  1. never trust a woman 🙂
  2. always trust your first impression when you approach a dog with cold yellow eyes wearing a spike collar. 😦
“Infection in Finger”

What is this lady engrossed in?

Her notebook, which I have turned around and inserted in the upper left corner, lists two women born in the 1940s plus their phone numbers. (I have blacked out some info.) Sandwiched in between the names is a treatment for paronychia – which I looked up and is indeed a type of yeast infection of the skin around the nails.

Her recommendation?

  1. go to urgent care
  2. patient should go to Bardmoor
  3. warm soaks plus topical mupirocin

Pic du Jour #43: “Playing in the Dirt”

These kids were entertaining themselves in a remote section of Yellowstone National Park while their parents & the rest of us were wolf-watching.

I briefly wondered how far they had to drive before finding a tub of soap and water to clean them up, but then remembered that I often faced the same problem.

Pic du Jour #28: “Junkyard Dog”

Somewhere on a blue highway in New Mexico I stopped and wandered through this beautiful junkyard. The gate was open and no one was around – how could I refuse such an invitation?

Then I rounded a pile of scrap and saw this:

I wasted no time hightailing it back to my car.
