- Today is my sainted mother’s birthday, she would have been entering the last year of her sixties.
- Another medical billing gripe: Children’sHealth robocalled me stating I have a late payment, which surprised me since I’ve paid every bill they’ve sent me. Later that day, I got a statement in the mail which indicated it was the second notification. It’s very important to me to pay bills on time, so I called in. The representative told me a statement was never sent out in the first place, but a “first statement” would be sent out later this week. Props to the representative for simply saying it was an error on their end and apologizing I received a phone call and late statement.
- For the first time since taking the oath, President Trump will stayed the night at Trump Tower. In all seriousness, I’m sure he really misses the place, he’s lived there for a very long time. In a way, I bet he’s longed for it and it’s become a part of him. I’ve read several Secret Service books and they all state if a president were to stay the night in a building, it would be one of the lower level floors, nothing higher than what a firetruck ladder could reach in case there was an emergency. Trump’s residence is on floors 66 through 68, so I wonder how he worked that out. And to be a bit macabre, he’s a sitting target if there were to be another 9/11 attack or even if a Cessna with flammables or explosives were to hit it.

- The book I’m reading had a bit of a bizarre story about the time former President Nixon was in a California hospital to get several blood clots removed from his leg in 1974. President Ford just entered the hospital to pay him a visit, but the last person leaving Nixon’s hospital room accidentally let the door shut behind and it automatically locked. Nixon was a prisoner of sorts, locked in the hospital room all by himself, too sick to get up. A maintenance man finally was able to get in the room ten minutes later with the use of a hacksaw and then Presiden Ford was finally able to visit.
