I am too old and too feeble to get the "giggles." But last night, while trying to go to sleep, I got the giggles. You see, Tuesday afternoon I had surgery for the excision of a scrotal mass. That is part-and-parcel to the cancer that is trying - with some success - to bring me down (to ashes). Remedial English in College. Many, but not all, of these students are home-schooled with all the trappings of Biblical Parenting. Then Cowboy Doofus tells the Anesthesiologist that he has an "intimacy problem" and needs a younger doctor to give him some new answers. Propofol (Diprivan) slows the activity of your brain and nervous system. Propofol is used to help you relax before and during general anesthesia for surgery or other medical procedures. After it was all over, I was taken home, had a cup of soup for dinner, and was put in bed. And then, just THAT above mentioned thought of a less than artful movie montage returned to my head and gave me the giggles. All night. Then, in recovery, I found out he was in to get arthroscopic orthopedic surgery for a wrist repair. Maybe that REPAIR will solve his intimacy problems!

Tomorrow is the 25th. 10 days, and it rots. I want to make it very clear. I am not talking about religion. I am talking about PEOPLE! Liverpool Lil's, after work dinner at the Down Under, meeting so many TV personalities when, as a kid from Reno, he had a decade of television experience in the San Francisco/San Jose markets and I was new to the business - less than 2 years out of college. More than anything, he was my guardian angel and kept me from being fired a couple of different times because I was outspoken and honest - and not very reserved. We worked at 420 Taylor Street from 1973 until I WAS fired in 1975! KBHK hired the first two female broadcast engineers in San Francisco - I got to know them rather well - in the biblical sense. Both complained to the boss... and "You don't get your tail where you get your mail" was his comment. The following Monday, I worked at KQED (4th and Bryant). That was all long before I was married. And long, long before I was gifted with terminal cancer. It's like the old guy who applied for a job. When asked what his greatest strength was, he said "honesty." When asked what his greatest weakness was, he said "honesty." When told: "I don't think "honesty" is a weakness, he said: "I don't give a rat's ass what you think!" REMEMBER? (Bakker went to prison for fraud) Jimmy Swaggart Ministries from 2008 to 2011 Swaggart wanted me fired (wrote a letter demanding it) in the 1980s - it didn't happen. RANT! Ted Haggard - "W's Spiritual Advisor." I want to make it very clear. I am not talking about religion. I am talking about PEOPLE! Full Movie - Scandinavian subtitles
