Doctor Charles is back!

It’s time to start writing again.

After a two year hiatus, I’m reopening the examining room. It’s dusty in here, I apologize. Some of you might remember me, others not.

I thought he would be back, though a two year hiatus meant he was out a lot longer than I thought he would be.

For those new to Dr. Charles, you’re in for a treat.  An excellent blogger, with a truly literary writing style.  I’d encourage you to add him to your RSS readers or your daily reads.

…Meanwhile, the politicians and lawyers smile…

Dr Wes is on fire. We’re not sheeple, though; they’re led by whoever says ‘follow me’. Dealing with docs is probably more akin to herding cats.

Guess who has a book! (That’s actually less of a surprise to me than that she’s a she).

I’m going to order one, and I think you should, too.

Doesn’t seem terribly Universal.

I think my daughter just cursed me…

I believe in Karma, mostly the bad kind: Say the forbidden words in an ED I’m in (Slow, Quiet) and you’ll have nothing but my wrath when the tidal wave of humanity breaks.

I’ve said this over and over, so you’d think she’d know better. My youngest (off to College this fall) said tonight “You haven’t been sick in a long time”. We have two big family events coming up this month, one of which is a big, expensive vacation. The foolishness!

Wood was knocked repeatedly, but I fear the Karmic gods have been tweaked. If I spend my vacation in the sick bay you’ll know who did it…

Happy 223rd Independence Day

Go watch the video.  It’s funny, and explains the goofyness of homeopathy very succinctly.
