I had to take a release form to my VA doc from my dentist. It seems he is worried about the mixing of medications used for doing the dental work that I need and the ones the VA has me on. Another fun process………..argh……… The dentist also thinks it is a good idea to wait until the urinary issues to be resolved before I have teeth pulled and some oral surgery……
I have to admit that this stuff is getting old….. If it ain’t one thing, its another.
Seeing as the Trusty Nikon was in the car, I decided to grab a few pics on the way home. The H-60 was a pleasant surprise. It was shooting touch and goes at Mojave and I got lucky enough to get a few shots of it. The day is windy and we are under a wind advisory beginning at 1600 PDT…. The wind blows in the desert….. Big surprise isn’t it!
Firefighters are slowly gaining on the fire. I could still see smoke this morning when I left work to head home.
Ninety-six homes and 213 outbuildings have been destroyed in the Blue Cut Fire, an official announced Friday morning, as the massive blaze continued to burn near the Cajon Pass. The fire is now 26 percent contained.
I had to take Missus ORPO to LAX to fly to Syracuse, NY to surprise Son Number 1 on his Fortieth Birthday. I was up at 0100 and we were on the road at 0200. I pulled up in front of American Airlines in about 0350 and I was headed home by 0415. I stopped for breakfast at Denney’s in Santa Claria for breakfast and Stater Bros in Mojave where I picked up a new IPA from Sierra Nevada.
Coming down the hill to Palmdale is a scenic pull out and the sky in the East was getting light so I decided to break out the Nikon.
Some are good and some are not. I am still trying to get it figured out.
Fear not, dear readers! I haven’t gone anywhere. It has just been one of those weeks.
I am still adjusting to the graveyard shift hours, specifically the four ten hour ones I am currently working. Add in a wicked head and upper chest cold from Hades…………and the three foot and lower leg issues. The amiltriptyline is handling the neuropathy fairly well but the capsulitis and plantar faciitis are not a lot fun. It hurts like hell when I get up out of the rack and do something simple, like walking to the bathroom.
I should be back in harness fairly soon with some rather unique beer posts to start.
The Los Angeles County Air Show will be happening at Fox Field in Lancaster in March. I think I will attend and pay the rather stiff admission so the Nikon will get a work out. The Blue Angels Number 7 was in town this past week to let the Antelope and Fremont Valleys know they will be the headliners.
Missus ORPO and I did something different this year as we did not go back to Kansas or visit in Palmdale with family there. We took a day trip to the San Gabriel Mountains to see some snow and have a look around. The road into this area is The Angeles Crest Highway.
