    Scaffolds and trusses! They are all over!

    Puppy Pic of the Day:  Gives new meaning to the phrase reconstruct the defect by means of a plate and a scaffolding that contains bone morphogenetic protein, amiright?
    I would love to know how to build those! My favorite trusses are bones. It is amazing the loads they carry, the abuse they can take and how easy to do daily maintenance for!

    Having an engineer-hobbied family doc made it easier to get through those early broken bones. He would go on about the function of whatever he was setting or sewing back together.

    His conversations were designed to keep me awake (he fixed many head injuries...would often counsel that I should lead with my brain and not the whole head) and testing my thinking while he and his partner would anesthetize, reset bone and sew me back up.

    Life was carefree back in the days of being under the umbrella of 2 really good insurers for Public Employees.

    So cheers to docs that engineer!

    Cheers to engineers!

    Cheers to scaffolds and trusses!

    Jeers, Jeers, JEERS to Alzheimer's and Fuck Cancer!

    Cheers to the face being a window to the soul.

    Cheers to people doing the right thing, living life, loving others, helping when they can and stepping up. You know who you are and one day someone you influenced will point it out.

    Another flaw in the human character is that everybody wants to build and nobody wants to do maintenance. Kurt Vonnegut
