I have a nasty head cold. It's a little better today than it was yesterday, but it's still pretty nasty. My nose and sinuses were pretty well blocked when I went to bed last night, but things are starting to clear up.

You'll all be happy to know that I had my prostate exam today and that everything appears to be normal. They haven't finished the PSA screen, but the ... er ... digital exam went fine. Turns out that the doctor contributes his time and part of the expense for the testing supplies to the church and spends one Saturday a year doing it. It ended up costing me next to nothing, which is good, because I don't have an insurance company footing the bill for it. Anyway, that's done for another year. I'll be 50 next March, so I guess this is going to turn into a regular thing.

Mary had to pick up some donated yarn today. Some of it was donated from a woman who got a significant amount of chenille mill ends from a textile plant somewhere in south Georgia. The lady does a lot of work for Project Linus, and had more yarn than she knew what to do with, so she contributed it to Mary's charity knitters' group. The rest of it came from a friend of ours who, like Mary, is a knitter, and who has been going through a serious Stash Reduction Program during January. In between our stops, we had lunch at Hooters. Mary had never been there before, and was really surprised that the food was as good as it was. I hadn't been there myself in a while. I don't drink (at least not anymore), so I don't typically go to bars.

And, we came back and watched a tape of McBride from last night. Turns out that the episode that the Hallmark Channel aired last night was the first in the series, and explained a lot of what we didn't understand from the first show.

Speaking of TV, I've heard that David James Elliott, the star of JAG, is leaving at the end of the season. I guess he got a better deal at ABC. Maybe I should send him my leavebehind for In Harm's Way, that follows the character of Harmon Rabb after he leaves the Navy and Washington behind. Think he'd be interested?
