Some say the world will end with fire.

Others say with ice.

From what I've tasted of desire

I hold with those that favor fire.

But if I had to perish twice,

I think I know enough of hate,

To say that for destruction ice,

Is also great and would suffice.

About Me

My photo
I am married and have seven children and twenty grandchildren. I retired January 1, 2010 after working 39+ years for the Forest Service...NEW CHAPTER IN MY LIFE HAS BEGUN!

Thursday, March 25, 2010


Here is what I did Thursday---nothing serious but the four spots have started to change so they are off and on the way to the cancer lab---Doc is pretty sure there is no problem but we'll know for sure in a few days.....shoulda done this forty or fifty years ago.

Here is the little project I did Wednesday. I finally got the drip torch from Cascade Fire Equipment. When I went to get the parts for the lamp the guy at Home Depot that was helping me find them wouldn't let me get just a plain globe he talked me into getting the one in the lamp---it flickers like a candle. It turned out better than I had ever hoped for. Was tougher that I thought to thread the electrical wire through the nozzle though---and stiffer wire would get around the circle but then wouldn't go up the straight part.

I need to go get some moles removed. I need to make an appointment. How would you like to be a pathologist? Gross.

Cool lamp! I like it!

I have two moles I want much does it cost?

Dee Ice Hole said...

Psych---I have no idea of the cost but it will be plenty you can count on that---I am not even sure if the insurance is going to participate but hope they do.

I have had tons of moles removed. If you hate a mole, all you have to say is something like it bugs you, because your shirt rubs on it, or whatever the reason. I had one that itched...and tell your dermatologist that, and it will only cost you a copay. I had some pretty scary looking ones on my back, and even though he thought they were fine, I was sick of all the Dr/wannabes telling me I was going to die. :)

Call your Dr, give them your insurance, and they can tell you your out of pocket cost.
