I don't know if there are any other Wheel Watchers out there or not, but this week Wheel of Fortune is featuring Canada, who is airing the show on the CBC for the first time ever!
This year, Wheel is featuring a million dollar prize ... all sorts of hoops have to be gone through before it can be won, but Tuesday night someone did it!!
It was kind of exciting! Lots of bells and whistles went off -- confetti, streamers, and balloons everywhere ... neat!!
Pat announced yesterday (tongue in cheek, of course) that they were now going to have to cut back on expenses. The budget for this year was heavily overdrawn. Vanna was going to have to start wearing t-shirts instead of all those gorgeous gowns.
It was really fun to watch.
Well, I finally got up the courage to call the dermatologist to test out what I'd heard the WellCare representative say about being able to schedule an appointment with a specialist without going through one's primary care physician.
I wasn't talking about heart surgery or cancer. I might have misled you as to what I was seeking.
No, this particular problem requires a dermatologist. I have a spot on the left side of my nose (just below the nosepiece on my eyeglasses) that doesn't look right to me.
Anyhow, I called a couple or so hours ago, and have an appointment with Dr. Nelson a week from today.
I am SO relieved! And of course, I'll want Dr. Nelson's office to send a report to Dr. Bauer (my primary physician) so that he can be aware of and coordinate all of my medical records. "No problem," said they.
I'll keep all of you informed as things develop further. I promise.
Just received another e-mail from my friend Beth, who lives in Pearland.
This one's topic is "Why pets hate Halloween." It has about 30 pix to be looked at. Haven't opened any yet.
Probably some pretty 'sick' ones in there, but I'll forward a few of those that I consider amusing -- and no doubt there will be some. How's that sound?
Had a few extra minutes this morning (after I had contacted the doctor's office) to read through some of my "Favorites" and make a comment or two. It felt good. Kind of made my day.
I wonder if Halloween isn't getting 'lost in the shuffle', what with Ike, the debates and the upcoming election, not to mention WalMart (who has the "distinction" of being the very first retailer to put out Christmas decorations this year ... boo, WalMart!)
