Grrrr

Our cable and internet on the desktop as been out for four days. No football, no Survivorman, no Bear Gyrlls, no How It's Made, no Priests concert on PBS. Thank goodness our laptop isn't with Comcast.

A spider, (I think) bit me on the leg and it puffed up like something out of a horror movie. My calf looked deformed from the side. My doctor told me to use Benadryl and hydrocortisone cream and thank God, the swelling has gone down. The inflamed skin is still warm but it's not hot anymore and the area is the color of rare hamburger. I was scratching like a chigger bit hound yesterday but now the urge to scratch is less so.

And to top off the annoying week I actually wished a Jewish attorney merry Christmas today (I never realized he was Jewish but there's a faux pas made with a person who could hurt me later if he decided to hold it against me.)

And I still haven't done any of my baking.......

Oh, you poor dear! (Chigger-bit hound! What a description...LOL!) Spider bites in VA are no joke - my sister strayed across the path of a brown recluse on a kids' field trip in some woods outside DC and nearly lost her leg many years ago.

And if that Jewish atty is a man of common sense and character, a) he's already forgotten and/or b) he should be far more evolved and enlightened than to hold it against you.

If not, you just let me know...

Sorry to hear about the bite but am glad you are getting better.

Hey, I get Happy Hannukah wishes all the time from a couple of store owners. I wish them a Happy H back.

No harm done.

It makes me thank God I am an American.
