I've heard of Door Knockers.......

Hey, do you remember when you were a kid and your parents had you stand against the door frame and mark how tall you were and then made sure they dated it with your name?

Well this picture brings a whole new perspective to that ritual!



And again I did this when I saw it!











I have a great true story that my husband shared with me that will make you laugh just as hard.

My husband who is a surgeon was sent an elderly female patient who was diagnosed with a 3 by 4 inch breast mass by her primary care doctor. Her mammogram was negative and when he examined her, there was no mass. A month passed and her doctor sent her again. This time he was insistent that my husband need to do something about this mass. My husband met with her again and noted that her deflated, droopy, elderly breasts contain no mass. This time her doctor called, not quite furious, but asked that my husband examine her in the manner he does. He was certain that my husband would feel this rock hard malignancy. Days later she comes in and my husband asked the patient "How does Dr. so-in-so examine you?" She said, "well, he has me stand up," she reported as she stood. Then my husband felt it...it was frightfully hard, bumpy, and fixed in place. He lifted her breast and confirmed what he thought. It was her rodeo style belt buckle with a hunk of petrified wood at her waist. He had to bite his tongue so he wouldn't laugh. The things he has to deal with everyday, gotta love his strength!

Happy Weekend everyone!
