Lifeline Screening

Today we went to Broadway Baptist Church for a health screening. There were fewer people there than I remember the last time we got a screening. It could be the economy has a lot to do with that. I think that most people do not go to see a doctor until they have symptoms. Today's screening could be called preventative medicine. We are supposed to get the results within 21 days. One of the tests checked for AAA. I am concerned about this because my Dad has this condition. All the tests were given in a period of about 30 minutes.

We picked up things out of the back yard to get ready for the man who will be mowing our grass. We also went to the library. They had some books for me, but since I'm indexing a book right now, I did not pick up any books. They will hold the books a few more days before sending them back to their library of origin. I hope to pick them up before then.

Our dishwasher was delivered and installed today. We went through the drive-thru at Wendy's after the medical tests and got lunch which we brought home to eat. As we drove up, we saw a pickup in our driveway with our dishwasher in the bed. He had not called before coming by, but he said he had not been there long. He installed the dishwaher and left. Our new dishwasher runs quietly.

I discovered today that I have the sheet music to Schubert's "Fantasy in F minor," which I heard played recently at a Hyechka meeting. The music is on a CD Sheet Music disc titled "Piano Duets: The Ultimate Collection." All I had to do was print it out.

Two of my favorite TV programs aired their final episodes tonight: "NOW" and "Bill Moyers' Journal." Moyers is retiring. His reporting is irreplaceable.
