It's that Time. . .

It's that time.

The official pilot check up. My regular female type doc is also a Flight Surgeon so if she has time I can combine them both. First Class pilot check up. EKG, blood work, full physical. The blood work is in. Total Cholesterol 104. BAD cholesteral 29. BP 105 over 58. (It's the bacon, I'm telling you folks). Now all that's left is the physical part.

Heart, lungs, and a quick check of the Muppet if she has time (otherwise it waits for the official female check up) and I'm good for another year.


  1. "The muppet"

    There's not much I can say... I'd....


  2. "Cholesterol 104. BAD cholesteral 29. BP 105 over 58"

    Stop bragging ;-)
    Good to hear the great numbers.

  3. Had me worried, Mrs. Drang is snoozing on the couch after a rough day, and when I saw that pic I laughed so hard I almost woke her up.

    Glad I'm not on Flight Status anymore. Well, kinda. A little bit.

  4. I don't think I've ever heard that particular process described so.

    Thank I think.


  5. Please don't tell me that Jim Henson's hand... nevermind.

  6. Just as long as the Muppet isn't the one doing the flying.

    I thought for sure you'd have a Mr. Flibble, however.

    I picked one up from a UK seller on EBay a few years ago.

    Sadly, the gingham dress is not included -- I've worn much stranger things out for Halloween ... as the staff on duty at the Fred Meyer in Vancouver Sunday night can attest. :)

    BTW, word verification right now is "bushies".

  7. Good Lord. Any if those numbers were any lower you'd be dead or Scandinavian.

  8. I'm glad to hear you're doing well, but I'm pretty sure I'll never look at Sesame Street the same now.


  9. "quick check of the Muppet"

    Brilliant! PMSL.

    Never heard the old front bottom referred to as a Muppet. But I shall never forget it now. LOL

    I just know I'm going to be smirking like a looney over this all day.

  10. You mean you can cook (and I presume eat) those recipes you post, and still have stats like that?


    And I refuse to make any reference to the Muppet except to say that that is a very disturbing photo.

    A toast to your continued health!

  11. Cholesterol be hanged, food is the only vice I have left. My G.P. (who is also a friend) tells me I should get into shape. He rolls his eyes and shakes his head when I respond that “round” is a shape. When I occasionally make biscuits now, I make them with lard. Yes, with lard, just like those made by my grandmother fifty years ago. They taste wonderful just like hers. Remember, lard is simply BACON with all the solids removed…


  12. Sounds good, if you are careful at the range you should last quite a few more years!

  13. Umm... never really thought of it that way... Muppet... and then, the visual...

    Now, I'm sitting in my office laughing like a loony.

  14. Numbers to be proud of, to be sure.

    Hope all is well with the Muppet, too, although you can spare us those details...

  15. I don't believe in cholesterol. So I can eat what I want.

  16. The muppet...Im a bad bad man....

  17. That is so not fair. All I have to do is look at a piece of bacon, and my cholesterol shoots up 50 points.

  18. oh my! Hehe...should scare anyone you want it to scare, If you want it to do that! Oh yes, Funny! Oh, just love your sense of humor and your writing!

  19. My, you do push the envelope. There's simply no polite way to respond to that, in mixed company. But it's like a bad car wreck - you don't want to look, but you do. Geez, there's a double entendre, without even trying.

    I don't want to respond, but I have to!! AARRGGHHH!

    And the verification word now is "oinellig". Probably Viking for "oink".

  20. Muppets FTW! Muppet check? Not so much. But it's necessary, I suppose.

    Glad to hear you're doing so great! I shall have some bacon in your honor tonight.

  21. "The Muppet" - Picturing Kermit in that context is just weird.....

    Glad everything looks good. Keep up the bacon & Guinness and you'll be in great shape.

    Also, your cholesterol is lower than mine and I'm 25. 104 is really low.

  22. I didn't catch the euphemism. I'm slow.

    I kept puppets at work to blow off steam from time to time. The non-PC things I was forbidden to say instead came out of the puppets' mouths.

  23. I am not even getting close to this one!

    Except to say I get this after the Katy Perry thing with Elmo? Childhood memories are pretty much trashed at this point, LOL!

    wv- rudedlea "Well he was not rudedlea right?

  24. Uhhn... We have the same bloodwork, on the same diet. I swear we're kin. You even look like a Foster, right down to the red hair and height(I don't, I throw to the Hogan side, middlin' sandy haired types). Eerie.

  25. Damn. That set me laughing out loud! And reminded me of all the Kermit and Miss Piggy jokes when I was a kid three decades ago.

    Sounds like your airframe still has a lot of fatigue life, I hope you have quite a few more years of soaring through life.

    Thanks for bringing a smile to my face!



I started this blog so the child I gave up for adoption could get to know me, and in turn, her children, as well as share stories for a family that lives too far away. So please keep it friendly, kid safe, and open to discussion, not criticism. This is my home. You can live in yours as you wish, but this is my place.
