She needs minor corrective heart surgery, if such a thing can ever be termed minor.
But she can't get a bed, they are all filled up at Scripps with Covid patients packing the rooms and in tents outside.
So she has been stewing in the Emergency room for three days. How frustrating?
I thought that Tom needed a break from the infernal waiting game and swung by to grab him for a couple hours yesterday.
We went over to Eastside Pizza in Cardiff and grabbed a slice, visited Seaside Market to watch where the beautiful and upwardly mobile got their food and then headed out for a walk at the San Elijo Lagoon to stretch our legs and see what we could see.
Tom had never been there before and I was eager to show him the beautiful recent renovations. Now my friend is not really a bird guy and it was interesting to see what he focussed on.
"Look Robert, a bumblebee. You never see them anymore."
He was right, there were hundreds of bumblebees enjoying the wetlands. Had never really focussed on them and didn't exactly yesterday either, the subject being too close to the 600mm lens and preferring to present me with an ass end.
You get the idea.
Next Tom saw that there were thousands of little crabs walking around like Popeye with their massive singular foreclaws. Guess I never noticed them before? This guy is a southpaw, most were right handers.
