I didn't log on last night because I was tiiired. I made it from Memphis to Hammond with no problems (except for a couple of health issues: For the last few days, I've been afflicted by twinges in my penis that sort of feel like I have to go to the bathroom even when I don't. Phantom potty emergencies, I've been calling them. It's either a kidneystone stuck in my bladder, or an infection. I shall have to see a doctor on Monday. Also, the joint of my left big toe occasionally becomes painful. I hope that isn't something serious). Today I drove from Hammond home here to Houston. Whew!

Stuff I saw or did:
-Passed that obelisk north of Jackson, MS again. According to roadsideamerica.com, it's a cellphone tower.
-Stopped in Rayne, LA, to see the frog murals on the interstate. Got rained on in Rayne.
-Went to Burger King in Rayne for some fries, and I guess I got there at the right time. The only employee I could see served me my fries, but I guess he was too busy to open a register 'cause he let me have the fries for free. Yay!

The only way that could have been more appropriate is if Rain got rained on in Rayne. (Does DC still go by "Rain"?)

She mostly goes by "Dana" now, but I think you can still call her that.

Regarding the joint in your left, big toe, just pay mind to it if other joints start to hurt in much the same way. If it starts to spread, you'd do well to tell your doctor about it. Being that you already suffer kidneystones, gout may not be that far around the corner.

Friggin' gout. I don't want gout! My mom has gout. Hey gout, up yours! Stupid gout.

It is something to ask about if the pain persists into Monday when you go to see the doctor. It could be something else. I try not to be too alarmist!

Had the kidney stones and also the occasional bout of gout, sounds like it, without a doubt.

It's almost always in my right toe, why, I don't know.

I think "gout" is short for "get out," which is what you snarl at it.
