And so it begins....Zocor joins the family

After yesterday's bright, breezy, and cool morning ....this morning dawned with a spot of rain on the streets.  It's humid, but cool, under dark leaden skies.  No need for a photo shoot this morning, plus I was too damn tired to get up before 8 anyway.  A longer than usual football rules meeting in Van Wert last night, and after the meeting Garry and I downed a couple of long necks from the Sam Adams Autumn Selection I had stashed away...we made a pretty good dent in that.

No football, mowing, or much else going on today...I'll get some weight lifting in, and maybe a half hour or 40 minutes on the treadmill, but other than that, not a lot on the agenda.

The Zocor Arrives____

I was in no hurry for the mail yesterday, I knew that the latest in a short list of prescription meds would arrive in the mail...and arrive they did.  The Zocor generic Cholesterol medicine that Doc had prescribed last week was in the box when I checked mail about 4pm.  I knew that there was no way I was starting to take it last night, I wanted a few beers after the football meeting, and wasn't going to start it off that today, this evening to be exact, would be the start of this new arrival.

So this morning I took my usual,...Lisinop/HCTZ for the Blood Pressure, the Terbinafine-Hydrochloride tables for the toe nails and Dermatitis, and a low dose of Aspirin for the heart...meanwhile the Zocor will wait until this evening, they say it works best at night, because your body produces more of the "Bad Cholesterol" while you are sleeping.  So I'll begin this, not happy about it, but I will give it a try....and hopefully will not imagine or wish on any possible side effects...because if real side effects do occur, you can bet I will dump this prescription in a New York Minute.  At 62 1/2 and feeling pretty damn good for my age, and much better than I was 30 years, or even 4 years ago....I will not become a slave to any medicine, regardless of what may occur if I stop taking it....meanwhile I will continue to workout, weight train, and officiate/umpire like I have been for years.  This new distraction, for better or worse, is unwelcome, but we will see how it shakes out...and I will let this blog know.

Football this week at Waynesfield, that is a Junior High game tomorrow afternoon, then on Saturday, a Freshman contest here in Celina between the Bulldogs and Ottawa-Glandorf....with no Varsity game to fill in for on Friday, I may take in the Celina/O-G game Friday night....The Titans are one of the league favorites(along with Kenton), and should be a heavy favorite, but Celina has improved over the past couple of years, so maybe it will be a good game.

Waiting for the rain to end....back later>>>>

Photos-My Moderate Collection of Daily Meds grows   :{

But I will continue my workout program, and see how it shakes out...and finally 3 more photos from my morning Grand Lake photo shoot yesterday....(1) Me looking east towards St. Marys and the rising Sun, a lone loon(and aren't most loons lonely?) swims off the western rocks of Windy Point, as the Sun rises at 7:05 in the morning over the eastern end of Grand Lake.

I'm amazed, I have to admit. Rarely do I encounter a blog that's both equally educative and amusing, and without
a doubt, you have hit the nail on the head. The problem is something which not enough people are speaking
intelligently about. I'm very happy I stumbled across this in my hunt for something regarding this.

Is there any way you can remove people from that service?
Appreciate it!
