Close Encounter

So Judy and I are sitting outside the PET scan unit in the Mays Clinic in the Medical Center, waiting for Judy's scan. We'd overheard someone saying that they were running behind schedule, but we didn't hear why. Then a large group of people came out of the PET scan unit. Lots of them wore dark blue suits. As the last of the people came out, one of them waved at me and Judy. It was John McCain. Maybe he was in town to learn something about health care. He didn't stop to chat with us, though.

Wow, no autograph - but brush with fame!

Yes, it was thoughtless of McCain not to ask Bill and Judy for autographs.

he's the democrat that LOST right? as opposed to the one that won.

Mary Ann Melton said...

Sounds like he has health issues . . . I'll be praying that Judy's tests have good results!

Yeah, the @#$%&*! with McCain--How's Judy?

Bill Crider said...

Judy's doing pretty well. She had to have the PET scan and a CT-scan to see if the new treatment she's on is working. We'll find out next week. McCain was in town to make a talk about health care, and apparently he and some other senators decided to tour the PET scan area and happened to come out about the time we got there.

He was in Houston? I thought he had gone to Argentina!

Bill Crider said...

And I thought YOU had gone to Argentina!

All the Argentine women are busy right now. It's all the rage among Republican officials who are Trying to fall Back in love with their wives.

Of course McCain didn't stop and chat with you. He's not running for anything. Doesn't matter where you are in the whole wide wonderful world, the amount of chatting that a politician does with "ordinary people" is directly proportional to the proximity and the scope of the next election.
