That Randomosity is definitely the right name for this blog, lol. So, before I forget, a heads up: For the foreseeable future I'll be posting a little less. Three, or possibly two days a week. Why? I'm starting an online organic gardening course next week, and I'll need to devote some time to it. Planting season is upon us as well, and that takes time and energy; having a finite amount of energy means less of it to spend here, although I've no intention of completely disappearing.
I've finally decided to get an Essential Tremour Medical Alert bracelet and card after reading a post by a member of my ET group. She had to go to the emergency room for a bleeding ulcer only to have the admitting nurse loudly announce, after observing her movements, "You've got DT's!" (delirium tremens) Even after having it explained that it was ET, not DT's, the nurse... who must have been very far behind on her continuing education courses, kept proclaiming loudly and contemptuously, that it was DT's. It was a bleeding ulcer.
I don't believe for a minute that all, or even many, nursing staff are so rude and ignorant, but also can't afford for my movements to be mistaken for DT's, drug overdose or withdrawals, or hysteria if I've been injured in an accident, or had a heart attack or another stroke. Also, having already had the experience of being followed around a store by a squint-eyed policeman, I think it's a good idea to have this I.D. just in case. Yes, I'm probably being paranoid; I'm okay with that.
Next week, per a suggestion from another of the Great Scot's cousins... Bass Flow's much, much younger sister whom I'll call Esse... I'll be sharing a video of Portencross Castle. It has been partially restored, and restoration is ongoing, and although it isn't in Kilbirnie/Glengarnock proper, it is located in West Kilbride, which isn't that far. Today, however, I'll be sharing the ruins of Glengarnock castle, which overlooks the river Garnock shown in the first video in this series; to learn more about it, click Here. The hole the video gives you a peek into contains the Great Scot's name scrawled upon the walls.
