LOL, so glad they found out in time that it was your foot that needed to be worked on, not other parts. Great cartoon. Also glad to hear that the pain of the procedure was worth it and that you're now feeling better.
Have a great day at your Church of the Ellipsoid Orb, TomCat.

5:54, which would be under average by a hair, except that the average is down. Grump.

I'm just sorry they haven't figured out a way to keep it from recurring. I suppose there is something to be said for going to your doctor at regular intervals which allows him or her to spot changes, and I suppose you make their day (you clearly made the nurse's day). But it's hard on you transportation-wise, and seems to be stressful. Go Broncos!

Nameless - what? Westboro Baptist is going to Iraq? To protest Islam? Well, what could possibly go wrong?

Love the cartoon! These days in pre-op the doctor uses their magic marker to draw a picture on your skin of where they will operate getting your agreement to ensure no patient mix-up and no wrong side for one sided problems to improve the QA and eliminate that kind of mistake that used to show up--glad you helped them with the comparable for the office procedure (might have been extra necessary given the distraction of your meds list). Glad you found time to welcome Kit back on her post last night.

My sincere advice to African Americans in Ferguson.
Insist on relevant education,
Learn to read,write with job applicatons (also for entry into the police force,(more fair etc.)

3:16 My paw wasn't as sore as that puddy tat's so I was able to make a better time.

I feel a little of your pain TC. I was at the podiatrist's last Wednesday, my usual bi-monthly visit, and I thought I had a plantar's wart. Fortunately I was wrong. I had a wooden sliver which he removed . . . but it was embedded. I sprung a leak and had a bandage but walking on it was miserable. To round things off, I am in the midst of another gout attack which is undoubtedly caused by too much spinach . . . I have been eating and thoroughly enjoying spinach quiche for breakfast. Yum! At least my doctor specialises in paws only so there was never any danger of being neutered!

Go easy for a few days!

Window ruins tower puzzle time; 5:03. It's one of the prettiest puzzles!

Neutered no! I'm here for my paw cartoon! Cute!

Wait, what? Westboro Baptist Clan accepted a paid trip to protest Islam in Iraq? For a moment, I smiled with relief.

Thanks all, Still pooped. Paw better.

As for Westboro Republican pseudo-Christians, I'm surprised that they and ISIS have not become allies. They are so similar. If they intend to become martyrs, I wish them every success. ;-)

Our friend Jim Phillips lives in Sonoma, CA where they had a 6.0 earthquake about 3 hours ago. I will send a note to see if he is alright.

Glad to read that your paw is feeling much better. I'm trying to catch up, I'm a day late, and several dollars short.
Thanks, Tom.

Jim Phillips is fine - he got a little roughed up but he's good.

Do love the "Cattoons".
Am fond of ancient architecture,
especially when I can do a puzzle
in 3 minutes under the average.
5:49 - me - Average 8:58
Of course the average is pretty
high right now......
