Reset the Doggone Thing - A Poem - The way things are in this new day are different now in how they play. What used to be, last time I looked, "oil pan-fried not water-cooked" No more hefting, hammering stuff. Use machines when tasks are rough. Even wily politicians have their own reset conditions. Push a button - make things better. Lights on-lights off. Dries gets wetter. Nothing to it, my dear friends. Reset buttons - modern trends. Push those buttons - change directions - No more straight-ons. Course corrections. When the doc runs out of pills simply reset all your ills. Nothing to it. Can't you see? "Besets" gone. "Resets" wheeeeeeee.

I wish I could find the 'off' button for a few people. :)

@JudyEv - Ms Judy - I recall out old Boy Scout leader's often-spoken words - "It ain't the coughin' that carries you offen. It's the coffin they carries you off in. I suppose that was the ultimate off-button... -Gus-

@Ceerios Very true. Vin and I were entering parents on a data base once for a school and there were a few that we wished we could just delete. :)

@hatley - Ms Patsie - Nifty image there, young lady. Hey, I'm glad that you got your ticker up to speed. Those docs can often be sneaky, trying to slow you down with one kind of pill after another. I would bet that they were feeding you a beta blocker pill (like atenolol) to keep your BP down a bit and the pill was kinda oversized for the job. Happened to me some time back and that atenolol got my heart rate down to under 50. Had me wondering why I was slowing down. All is well that ends well - so it is said. -Gus-

@Hatley - Ms Patsie - I have always had the conviction that doctors and their buddies only worry when the patient gets below "40" when that "40" refers to how many pennies they still have in their stash. Some time back I wrote this one: "The Psychiatrist" "Before I peer into your mind I'd like to take a look to see if you can make some sense with your pocketbook." -Gus-
