correction, hopefully pictures, rooster rake, patient with chest pain

my wife she(she loved my blog yesterday, she cried at work when she read it)
corrected my larry story.   the rooster in seinfeld was not little larry but was little jerry.
my wife she told me that we named larry larry because when he crowed he sounded like
he had laryngitis.   so thats the true story of how he got the name of larry.

am in learning mode.   will attempt to transfer pictures today.  one will be a picture of the
weeds i treated with my organic mixture of orange oil, vinegar, and liquid detergent.   beside the
dead ones is one i did not treat with anything.

the other one is a picture of larry that one of my wifes students painted for us.   she came out and took
pictures of our place then did drawings of several of them.  one was the larry picture.
if i can find and transfer i will do a actual picture of him.

one of the funniest things that has happened here since we lived here besides me chasing the cows
with my riding lawn mower(will show video clip later of this) was when my wife she got caught
in the chicken run with larry between her and the exit.   earlier described the c shape of our
chicken run.   well the right side of the run has no exit.   you have to go all away around the c
to get out.   he was scarey when he would attack with his claws and spurs up at you.  almost had
several heart attacks when he would attack me from behind.   my wife she yelled and yelled but did
not hear her.   she finally found a large stick to protect her self with.   she then managed to escape.
this would be one of many attacks on her by larry.

we had a pooper scooper that we used to scoop horse poop from our stalls.   it had a red plastic scooper
that was about 1 foot wide.   this became the official rooster rake that my wife she used to protect herself.
will admit i used it several times myself.

over time many of the tines were broken off but it was still functional. will show picture later of what
it looks like now.

in my previous practice in another city remember being real busy this time of year doing sports
physicals and well child exams.  remember a woman walked in to the office.   she was complaining
of chest pressure that started 1 hour previously.   it was not associated with any other symptoms
except for  mild nausea.   all of my rooms were full of well child exams and sports physical patients.
she was put in an extra room.   following our chest pain protocol she was given aspirin, oxygen,
nitroglycerin.   she got some mild relief from it.  her pain was described as just pressure not severe.
her ekg showed some mild changes only.    her bp was elevated over 200.  her heart rate was 64.
paramedic and ambulance were called.   she was transferred to a nearby large hospital where she
was found to have had a mild heart attack .   her risk factors were no exercise, obesity, mild abnormal
lipids(low hdl-happy or good one and mild elevated ldl-lousey or bad one and stess in her life.
remember the signs and symptoms of a heart attack and seek help if they happen
