I'm not sure I'd really want a monkey to fly up to me and hand out cotton candy, anyway. Too sweet, too sticky, and probably drooled on by the monkey.

Meo, I’m glad you were proactive and didn’t ignore the symptoms. Best wishes for the stent and quitting cigarettes!

meo -- Yes, having a stent is pretty routine these days, and I hope you will do fine. I had mine put in at 54 and was in the hospital anyway. I remember having to lie still for quite a while with a heavy weight over my groin where they went in the vein. No big deal. Hopefully you will feel better after you get it put in. Good luck!

Thanks Hollyhock. Ya, I think it's fairly routine. I did have one put in when I was 55 or so. It was routine until the nurse sat me up too soon and it started bleeding.

Either she didn't know what to do or it scared her because she called for the head nurse and started 'fisting' my vein. I ended up staying the night. It all worked out in the end.

No not you at all. You are just sharing and it is your life and others are interested. I was referring to those who want to rain on others sunshine or find a way to make a thread negative.
Not you or anyone else having a down time and sharing.

Walmart.com has lots of groceries to order by mail too. I use them all the time for canned goods and items in jars (artichokes, Mezzetta roasted red peppers, Mezzetta kalamata olives, green olives, cannellini beans, Progresso lentil soup etc).

(Walmart.com/groceries https://grocery.walmart.com also has a new delivery service for all groceries which comes directly from your local Walmart including fresh vegetables, fresh fruit, fresh meat - but I'm talking about Walmart.com long-time delivery by FedEx or UPS - $35 & above orders ship for free)

Was reading on FB that my cousin had a heart attack yesterday. He is doing ok. He is ICU because there are no open rooms. He is the one that was shot last November. I don't see him embracing a healthier lifestyle. He likes his booze, dope and cigarettes

Got a Federal check and stared at it trying to figure it out. Finally noticed "jury duty" but kept staring at the amount. Think they've grossly overpaid me and not sure how to contact them. Of course, it was just a check without any explanation of how they computed the amount. I computed the hotel reimbursement, mileage, incidentals amount and a day of jury pay (even though I wasn't selected, I did spend the whole day there) and I don't come even close to what they sent.

Has this ever happened to anyone else? What did you do?

Wow, this was a federal check? Is the federal govt always this generous to jurors?

I'd deposit the check but not plan on spending it for a long time (a year at least) in case they come asking for reimbursement.

That's what I did eons ago when my & DH's medical employers' insurance plans double paid on my medical bill.
When I called them, they said to mail them a personal check for the difference. DH & I said, "uh-huh, like they'll correctly handle it and credit us (not) when they get our reimbursement check."
So we opted to hold the funds until they asked for reimbursement, at which time we would pay them promptly. They never asked. Our conscience is clear because we did inform them of the over payment.

We all need to vent and speaking only for myself, it's ok that you come here instead of starting a new thread every time things go south for you.
