- Mike Springer will be there
- Jimmy is participating this year with his green mini
- it's in Saugus!
So why not, right? Earlier that week:
Janet: Hey! You want to see Mike Springer?
Me: Of course? But how? I can't meet him up for lunch. I need to work.
Janet: No, not lunch. This Saturday!
Me: (still confused) The concert at the park?
Janet: No! Car show! He said he will come to the car show this Saturday.
Me: Really? (very excited at this point) Yea! I'll come. What time?So that's basically how I end up going to the car show. Of course also to support our friend, Jimmy! First thing when we get in is to look for Jimmy's green mini.
We saw him chatting with some onlookers explaining how he build this. In case you don't know, Jimmy build his car from scratch! Look at the pictures of how the mini 1st looked like when he bought it. Yep, he is a smart man.... that's why we are friends. The smart mingles with the smart people. :PI still remember he took us for a ride when the car is 3/4 done. No windshield, no window and no upholstery yet. He took us for a ride in the neighborhood.... man that thing is sure loud! And now the final work... a masterpiece. Right now, he is working on another mini. He is a crazy mini-mania! hehe.....
We did finally meet Springer and chatted with him and his wife for awhile. Haven't seen him for a long time, but we still often chat on the phone. He is so funny. He always managed to make me and Janet laugh each time without fail. We are a huge fan of his. Too bad, we didn't get to take a picture with him. Maybe we were all too excited to see each other that we forgot. So it was a sweet meeting.....
Here are some pictures of the cars for your eye candy that John managed to took before it gets dark....Don't ask me what they are. For all I know they are special cars.
We left at about 9pm and since TJ Maxx is not too far away, I wanted to stop by to look for bags. They have designers handbags at a very good deal. John reluctantly drove me there. I didn't see anything I like, we left empty handed. We then went to Fridays for dinner.That's my apple martini, alot better than what I originally ordered, Friday's martini. I took a sip and it was too awful. So the John had the waitress changed it to an apple martini for me instead. We were very dissapointed with the food. Thsi is the second time the food has disssapoint us. We vow never to have dinner at Fridays again.... at least not the one in Santa Clarita.

They found a 1.0 X 1.8 cm benign appearing smooth oval density in the left mid lung zone. He has advised that I go seek a specialist for a more professional opinion since I do not have a previous x-ray exam for comparison. So I made an appt with my family doctor to get amother x-ray exam done. Maybe he got some bad x-rays, who knows right? Then I went to my family doctor 2 weeks later and got 4 more x-rays done with 2 at a very special angle shot now that we know where the stupid benign is. Yep, it's still there not gone. She assured me that it's probably nothing. It's probably calcified. After all I am too young to have cancer! I did smoke, but it was just an occassional thing. Ok, so maybe not ocassional during my college years, but still??? Anyway, I didn't think it was anything major. I am pretty sure it was nothing. I felt fine, I meant I breathed normal. There was really nothing wrong with me. But I still needed to go to a specialist for peace of mind. She had to referred me to a specialist and I went in again few weeks later. I did a breathing test to test my lung capacity. The technician was very helpful. He coached me during the entire process. I was asked to sit in a booth, they call it a Plexiglas booth. In this booth I did different breathing techniques, blowing into a tube, while in the booth. The result came out very normal. However in order to make sure that the 1.0 X 1.8 cm benign density is calcified and not cancerous, my specialist ordered me a CAT scan. Fast forward to August 8th.... that's when I get my Ct scan result. It's proven that it's calcified and not cancerous. woohooo.....! See, I knew it was nothing. He said it's probably just an old scar from something... a pneumonia maybe? I don't remember getting it when I was young... anyway, who cares? As long as it's nothing. He said I might born with it too. It's hard to tell since I do not have a previous x-ray exam.
Right now, the concern is my tb skin test result. Because I was tested positive, he thinks that I have tb germs or bacteria in my body. He said my body's defenses are protecting me from the germs. This is referred to as latent TBI. He wants me to do preventive therapy that aims to kill germs that are not doing any damage right now, but could later. I would need to take a medication named INH for nine months. I have agreed to do so but I haven't started yet. We are changing our medical insurance and until then I won't start taking it. :))) So there! I am perfectly healthy.
Now you are wondering why the subject of the blog? *grin grin* It's because..... I got tickets to a play, the Wicked for my birthday from John. It started at 8pm on August 8th. I came back and met up with John after my doctor's visit. Took a short nap and headed straight to Hollywood The Pantages theatre . We had dinner at a japanese restaurant around the block. Definitely will not go back there! Food is not that great but the play was awesome. It was the best play I've seen so far. Thanks babe!!
my tickets... lovely!
nope, we didn't pay a visit...... but looks interesting
that's my man waiting to cross the street
