June 2011 Issue

Oh well, here comes July. I’d be amazed if we weren’t overrun by zebras and wildebeest by August at this rate. A family of raccoons has taken up residence in the upstairs of the pole barn we use for a garage, and they’ve produced two babies, which are, dare I say it, even cuter than kittens. I sneak Momma Raccoon dry dog food every so often. (And yes, I know not to get very close to them.)

Thanks, as usual, to all the wonderful folks who subscribed or contributed last month. You light up my life, by which I mean, of course, that you pay the electric bill. And buy food for the baby raccoons. And for the cats and dogs. And for us.

Hey, I just noticed that we’re nearing 1,000 Facebook “likes” on our TWD Facebook page! And not a single one of you is related to me! And I actually know only three or four of you personally! I’m not sure what that says about my friends and family, but hey, It’s Awesome!

Now, if I could just get every one of you lovely folks to send me ten bucks….

Lastly, please send in your questions!

And now, on with the show….

    Mr. Morris

    As an ophthalmologist, I enjoyed reading your column on “optics” this week. I also enjoyed reading your recent bit on our cultural aversion to correct spelling. So I feel obliged to mention the missing “h” in your rendition of “ophthalmology”. You’re certainly not alone, though. Googling the uncorrected version will reveal nearly 6 million hits – many from fellow ophthalmologists. To get around the entire issue, we often just refer to ourselves as “eye guys”.

    Where, why and how did we get the word: “nightmare”?
