The Bad News…

for me was it took two hours to drive 47 miles into Seattle, WA to go to the VA Hospital for my annual physical yesterday. Horrible traffic congestion! No wonder I try to avoid large cities. Nonetheless, this once a year activity must be tolerated.

The good news is my doctor said “You’re too healthy for your age, get outta here!” Every day I thank my lucky stars for my good health genes and good fortunes in life. It never has more meaning than to be among fellow veterans whom have not been so lucky.

The VA Puget Sound Heath Care facility as see by Google Earth. Finding a parking place in the lower left parking lot was quite a chore.

The other good news is my new Bronco II handled the heat of the traffic congestion just fine. The needle on the temperature gauge never moved from slightly below mid-normal. With a new-to-me used vehicle it takes a little while to find out what it will and will not do. Overheating in that traffic congestion yesterday just would not have been a lot of fun.
