Memorable Automobiles from The Past:

Most of us at one time or the other have changed our minds. There have been times I was so convinced something was right, but then later, changed my mind.
My lifestyles have been so that I have never had what you would call a ‘family doctor’. No one I could say is ‘My Doctor’. In the military if you need a doctor, you do not have a choice, you just see the next one available.
I never had one that I did not trust though.
I have known several people who ‘changed doctors’ or ‘changed their minds.’
My VA doctor is a great guy. He also is very smart. Earlier this year (or last) When I had a very bad stomach pain I spent hours in the Emergency room (with many tests) and got no relief. Then another VA Dr. at the walk in clinic; got no relief, Last Sherry got my VA DR. to see me. He diagnosed it in 5 minutes, called in the meds and I was better in a couple hours and have had no other problems.
Today I went to see him for my yearly check up. He came out to get me. Normally it is his nurse. He Motioned for Sherry to come over.
“Give her your wallet.” Ok
“Give her your keys.” Ok
“Give her the change out of your pocket” I’m confused He has a serious look. I had no change…………..
Then He laughed, told Sherry to follow and inside the door had me step on the scales to be weighed. We went into his office, Sherry came in, and we had a good visit.
He asked if I had changed my mind about the Covid shot? I told him not yet. He gave a short Pro Vax talk, I trust him. He said he has taken Two of the different shots, I don’t remember which. Being in contact with so many different folk. During his short talk he said he had held his mother’s hand a short time ago as she died with the Covid. She did not have the shot. His main concern was the kids. He covered very well to how diseases modify.
He did not push, and ended with Okay I have said my piece, How are you doing? Instead of his nurse doing it he had weighed me, took my blood pressure and pulse as he talked, all done efficiently.
He is a very sincere and honest man I think. It has always been my impression. I have not seen many doctors but I would rate him the top of the top.
I am thinking of changing my mind on the shot, but I want the one with one trip, I THINK!
Oh yes, After the visit he walked us out to the lobby area. Then turned to Sherry, “Should I prescribe that your return his wallet?”
He reached around my shoulders and said I enjoy seeing you!
PS: Doc took the Pfizer and J & J shots, my Sherry says!
