Are there any politicians who don’t lie about their history? This is another big one from Hysterical Raisins:

(Don't tell her the dog's real name is Santiago!) From POLITICS DAILY: Arizona Governor Jan Brewer finds herself under scrutiny after telling a newspaper that her father “died fighting the Nazi regime in Gemany.” In actuality, Brewer’s father, Wilford Drinkwine, passed away from lung disease in California, ten years after World War II had ended.

April Fool’s Day in the Emergency Room

Talk about being an April Fool! After agonizing over my fall from a stepladder on Monday night, My daughter,Penny, brought me to Urgent Care at the Robinwood Medical Center in Hagerstown. They took X-rays and found three broken ribs. Then they sent me to the Emergency Room at Washington County Hospital where I spent the next 8 hours or so.

For a while it looked like they were going to book me into a room and keep me for a couple of days in the hospital. In the end, though, they gave me a painkiller prescription and some instruction sheets and told me to take it easy for the next couple of weeks and Elly came in to pick me up. I also had to schedule a followup X-ray for next Monday and an appointment with my regular medic, Dr. Kugler.

So I apologize for not blogging all day (and for really falling off the last couple of days.) Tomorrow I’ll start up my regular blogging again.

Meanwhile I’m going to sleep.
