Went to my Doctor on WEDnesday, feel like a real heel. I took a test to see if I had something and had to drink this liquid stuff, it was carbonated and I haven't had soda pop or any of that crap for a good month. I did not expect it being a medical test, I did not get mad I was shocked. I have been avoiding soda pop and other things that aggravate my system. I should have stayed and finished the test but I left. I just left. I feel like an idiot. I got the best doctor, a guy that cares and puts up with my hard headed insanity and I left. On top of that I walked there and back, I can hardly walk today sore as hell Hard Headed Jackass.

I read an article about the two fountains on State street they voted to remove and the reasons behind it they agreed that the fountains were Unattractive, Dilapidated, Nuisances that invite loitering and crime. Hmmmmm, back in 2007 they did not invite loitering and crime, the real question here is when did these two fountains go bad? When did these two fountains start inviting crime into the area? Inanimate objects are not alive and cannot invite anything anywhere, they also have no control over the way they look, it takes living creatures to change the way inanimate objects look. The truth is that the criminal element damaged these fountains and continue to do so and the City Leaders are letting the criminals rule the city for whatever reason. I suggest we take everything off State street, in fact, take the town back a few decades when the city leaders did not blame inanimate objects for the problems on State Street, that way we can start all over when the changes do come and see where "WE WENT WRONG."  Not the fountains and avoid making the same mistakes again. Wouldn't that be nice? To be able to step into a big old Time Machine and start all over, it would be easy what we have going on now. I guess it's just easier for some to get rid of inanimate objects and build new ones. "Out with the old in with the New." Hoping someday the criminal element will go away on its own. The bigger a city becomes the more the crime. No one wants solutions they want money. Here are your Scanner Reports.

Roger, I wish I had the courage to walk out of the doctor's office when something happens that I don't like, or am afraid of, or know is bad for me. Good for you, my muse.

No I should not have left, I should have stayed I think it to be more fear than anything the older we get the more we need and I'm not doing so well with my walking I may need one of those damn chairs pretty soon. I'm going to have to go back...Never mind what the flu shot did to me I gotta get checked..

Glad to hear you're going back Roger. Just be your honest ornery self and the staff will understand like we do. No one likes going to the doc!

I once had the pleasure of a condescending belittling arrogant Doc once at County and left about half way through. Turned out there were several complaints about this women and I ended up with a great one.

The Dr. probably had you drink that sugary stuff to test your glucose and diabetes. If you're not treating your diabetes, it could be to blame for all the issues you've been mentioning. Best to go back to the dr and complete the testing, you'll feel better in the end.

That's what I was thinking but I've never known the sugar water for a GTT to be carbonated . Also I would think any carbonated drink would be contraindicated due to gastric erosion in the tummy .

Roger, The fact that you left without completing the test hints to my that they didn’t explain it well enough to you. Sometimes medical people, who do the same things everyday, don’t understand that a big part of their job is to make sure that the patient understand what the test is all about and all the steps that will be required to accomplish it.

Next time going to the Drs. appointmen, bring someone hard-headed with you, that can boss you around, and make you do things you don't wanna do, like make you stay and finish your appointment... !!!!

They do that Probation Check every week. It's a halfway house over there on the 1200 blk San Andres.

Phony money might have been one of my $2 dollar bills that I rehome as a yearly project, in memory of my, sorely missed, brother.

I can't even remember what that is what we talked about..I don't blame you Monkey Boy I have compassion because I have been there. But when I was a kid I wanted to be a cops even went to school for it. I might have made it too if that telephone pole and police car wasn't in the way of my high speed chase that night...The cops have a really bad habit of showing up when you least expect them too...So anyway while I have compassion for the homeless and poop I hate Criminals and I'm starting to see what is happening on State Street getting worse everyday..Maybe the Guardian Angels are needed here...It aien't getting any better...You Law Abiding Cool Your Not Move On...

I hope it doesn't get me in any trouble usually when you talk to other folks you don't expect things to be investigated then again there's always the Nile.

Everyone talks about how closing State to cars would revitalize downtown into this wonderful walkable plaza. No one stops to think this will just give the bums more stuff to break, just like they broke these fountains...just like the $600K bathroom is destroyed and unusable by anyone but a bum...they even had to take the doors off! I avoid downtown, not because of the high rents, but because my kids are scared of the angry ranting bums and the cursing gutter punks.

That is what I get for medicating before I wrote that "I have compassion for poop." Must be the IBS that runs in the family Thanks Mom....Ha,ha,ha....

Roger, were you being sly when you said "IBS runs in the family?" Pretty clever in any case!

Roger.....such a bonehead for walking out of your doctor’s office in the middle of a test! Do you remember when we had phone booths on State Street ? They were built like open-door bomb shelters and designed so there was no possible way you could sleep in them. I tried when I was homeless and passing though town in ‘69. I just returned from the Pacific Northwest and went to an A.A. meeting in Seattle called “Poop Stories”. Classic. You would have loved it.

Remember in the early 80's when a certain preacher who has a famous daughter stood outside of the Fellowship Hall calling it Anti Christ Anonymous on State street with the Media and I shoved him into one of those things? The good old days...

If those phone booth were there today they would serve as auxiliary public bathrooms. Gross but true. Yeesh!!!
