I had to read s…l…o…w…….
I was up at the Marias Heritage Center last night (Tuesday), reading Montana History to the residents. It’s a grand book that we’re currently enjoying, “The Doctor Wore Petticoats-Women Physicians Of The Old West” written by Chris Enss. The tales of these early day lady medical practitioners is more than interesting, it’s downright entertaining. Only problem, when I signed off my afternoon radio program right before 6 last night, I forgot and left my reading glasses here at the station. And when I arrived at the Heritage, it was “too late to turn back now” as the ol’ song says. In order to read aloud to the Marias Heritage group, I had to shut by left (bad) eye, squint with my right, hold “The Doctor Wore Petticoats” at a right angle, and read very, very s…l…o…w…l…y. To make matters worse, this book features many examples of these women doctors’ own words and writing and they’re printed even smaller than the rest of the narrative. It was an interesting evening to say the least and I’m looking forward to going back next Tuesday at 6 WITH my glasses. Thankfully I did have a new set of batteries for my hearing aid and I could hear everything I needed to. See you later this afternoon on the Puffman Show following local high school football play by play.
