]Don't sweat it.He was 17 Collie/Shepherd. All my dogs 4 ... lived that long.
They're Family...and they're treated that way.
I felt like maybe it was too soon after watching him walk the mile.
I found out later that my wife managed to give him 4 aspirins that morning......he had quit eating.
We went through alot of liver sausage the last month or so.The only way he'd take the aspirin.He also was deaf the last 10 months....and did'nt want us to know....he'd only bark when he 'saw' our other dog barking.......
Our dog before this one was blind for 3 months. My brother would have to walk him. when we were'nt home. with a leash so he would'nt bump into things.Looking back, when he first started to go blind...I was the one who said we're gonna have to put a football helmet on him.Watching a dog at first bumping into things is funny.........but that changes aufully fast...I had duct taped 'cushions' on all the corners of the furniture.
As long as he wagged his tail......He was'nt goin anywhere.

<quoted text>He has a great Aunt who works at a furniture store. He has been on-line comparison shopping, he has so far looked at 3 apartments, but about 37 different recliners. he found one that heats up AND vibrates ( I don't want to know)
My fav Uncle (passed a couple of years ago)had a recliner with heat and vibrate ...odd as ultra conservative as he was. I didn't care for it.
and can't decide on a fabric, but knows for a certainty that he MUST have a cup holder and a built in side thingy that will keep his beer cold.(They make chairs with built in beer coolers, I freaked on that knowledge! whats next a built in toilet?)
~snicker~
anyways, for a house warming, if he ever picks an apartment, I was going to get him a set of dishes,
I have a very well stocked kitchen for a single gent ...and I enjoy using everything I have. Lots of my stuff was passed down from Mom ...she gets the new stuff. I bought a very nice set of stainless cookware that took some getting used to. Mom is getting older and gave me all her cast iron pans and a very nice Dutch Oven. So if you're asking what I think ...get you some new stuff, and pass on your old stuff. Truely, eating off Moms dishes, or cooking with Mom's discards gives one a warm, fussy feeling ...just makes it feel more like home.
but now I'm thinking maybe a TV tray for eating in his new recliner. I have a neighbor who does woodworking as a hobby and could make a personalized one. Is that too dorky? should I just go with the dishes?
A TV tray is an excellent idea ...custom made and soon to be an heirloom ...excellent choice.

I also found an electric skillett and/or a Crock Pot to be welcome additions to the kitchen when first starting out ...and have always had both since.

Gentlemen ...idea's for the lady.

I have mixed feelings on the for-profit hospital idea. For profit hospitals use some of that money to upgrade equipment, hire more people, etc. Of course, a lot of it is bonuses for those who are making it profitable.

By the way, in GA you cannot be turned away from an ER for lack of insurance. Some of the money earned goes to pay for care of those who are uninsured. Also in the state of GA, lenders do not look at huge unpaid medical bills because of lack of insurance as a strike against your credit. They know the fees are exorbitant and that most working people simply cannot afford health care beyond an occasional visit to their GP.

I plan on using my Mom's iron cookware until I die and then leaving pieces to each of my sons. I have used them for a long time now and there are certain things that are just better in well-worn iron cookware than anything else.

There is nothing wrong with not-for-profit hospitals collecting fees from their work.

Nor is there nothing wrong with not-for-profit hospitals having sufficient funding for upgrades or new equipment.

But all for-profit hospitals? Are greed-based, first and foremost-- by law. As a for-profit chartered business, they are required by law, to create profit for their investors.

That is their #1 priority, everything else-- including saving lives-- is secondary to that motive.

Which is why for-profit hospitals are fundamentally evil.

... meh.

But I do not blame those who work for them at the majority of levels/positions -- most folk who are "in the trenches" are not there for profit-- it's a thankless, long-hours occupation, being a nurse, supporting technician or doctor in the ER/OR.

No-- I blame those at the very top, who are making the decisions financially, to short-change people's very lives, to save a buck.

That's what is evil.

Oh, I know-- it's the single saving grace that most for-profit hospitals are forced (also by law in most cases) to accept anyone who comes to their ER for help.

Nothing like a well seasoned frying skillet for cookin' up foodstuffs.

Cast-iron, black as midnight.

I have two of 'em.

Wipe 'em with a damp cloth after use, and apply some oil now and again.

You can't make stuff stick to 'em with an arc welder.

Crock pots.

$12 at Tarjay, set 'em up at night, plug 'em in in the morning, dinner's ready when you get home.

Hurt rather a lot - conveyor belts will do that, and high-speed stone-and-gravel movers can be quite damaging.

Amputation was an option...
