Howdy Y’all

I never say “howdy y’all” in real life. Just thought you should know that. I’m a Michigan girl transplanted to Texas. “Howdy ya’ll” is fun to hear from a Texan, not so fun from a mid-westerner, but it is fun to write. So howdy y’all.

I’ll be blogging here and participating in Hawkins’ grand experiment. I will still be cross-posting at my own blog Dr. Melissa Clouthier[1]. There will be some content there, that just doesn’t seem right for here. For example, I spent the last hour writing on medical mistakes[2], was all set to put it up here and realized that John didn’t have a category for it indicating that it probably wasn’t something that you people would give a Panda’s poop about. Ooops! So, I’m still feeling it out.

Here is something you might like, though. Yesterday was Armed Forces Day and so I wrote about the unfortunate predicament[3] fighter pilots found themselves in when nature calls. A new and very expensive device is being used for just such situations. A reader hooked me up with an actual fighter pilot’s experiences with Piddle Packs[4] and it’s an excellent way to start the week, because you’ll be peeing in your pants ‘cuz you’re laughing so hard.
