Coldest night of the year

We are in the middle of winter here in Florida, but tonight is scheduled to be the coldest night so far. Some areas just north of us will get down to freezing tonight. We should only get down to 39 degrees F., but that is cold enough for me. I have a nice fire going and I don't plan to go anywhere. I have to go to the doctor tomorrow, but if I had known it was going to be so cold, I wouldn't have scheduled it! Ready for my "Welcome to Medicare" checkup. I finally qualified for medicare, even though I have been on disability retirement for two years. They make you wait that long. I think they figure if you haven't died in two years, then they will give you health insurance. I plan to have all the free probes, blood tests, check-ups and anything else that they will pay for! I will probably be headed over to the cardioligist next for a stress test, haven't had one of those in awhile. I hope everyone has a nice romantic Valentines Day!

Happy V-day to you, too. I love your roses in front of the beautiful fireplace.

We must be on the same Welcome to Medicare list. I just got my card and it becomes effective April 1 (April Fool's Day, you fool, I'm thinking to myself). I have been on disability since October 2003 and was really surprised to get my card in the mail. It's a good thing I got it because I'm scheduled for a total knee on April 10. Hope your checkup goes well.

Keep warm.

Happy Valentine's Day, Tuff. Those roses are stunning!

I'm glad you got your Medicare - I suppose that will make things a whole lot easier for you.

Take care of yourself in the chilly weather.
