I know it has been 3 months since my last update here and the reason like the rest of the world just trying to finish 2020 in one piece. I wish I had something original to share and even my humor is not original, “Just wait until 2020 turns 21 and starts drinking!”
That said like the rest of the world Magnolia has been carry’n on in 2020 the best we can while doing what we can to stay and keep those around us and ourselves safe.
Those who follow us on Facebook are probably aware of my Public Service Announcements regarding retirement saving and mental health care and the support for others to those facing that challenge. Well it seems I need to add a somewhat personal topic to those PSA announcements. Though a bit confusing, this PSA Topic, “The PSA test is a blood test used primarily to screen for prostate cancer. The test measures the amount of prostate-specific antigen (PSA) in your blood. PSA is a protein produced by both cancerous and noncancerous tissue in the prostate, a small gland that sits below the bladder in men.” (Mayo Clinic). My long term physician never ordered the test and it was not until after I changed physicians that the test was ordered. Thankfully my issue was detected and I am confident we will get the situation resolved but if I had not changed physicians the outcome could have ended up ALOT more serious. Please no matter your age ask the question “Do I need a PSA test and if not, why not!!!” Just do it!! PLEASE.
Dealing with the above delayed Magnolia’s departure from Maryland way too late. How late, I had to wear long pants for the first time in 8 years while not attending a wedding or a funeral. Our trip south was cold but we with the exception of temperature we had good weather. Magnolia is a comfortable vessel and well found so we hoped we would be a bit warmer getting to Jacksonville Florida. After spending more than one night with 28 degree temperatures we are moving right along heading out for south Florida on Tuesday.
We will be heading for Stuart where Magnolia and myself will get some maintenance. We hope you all were able to have a decent but safe holiday. If there is one thing I hold closest and hope the same for you….just how blessed and grateful we are it. Please be safe…Anthony & Annette
