You don't know a community until you use their ER. I had a painful finger infection, probably from a scratch that became infected by my not always remembering to put on work gloves. After the finger looked like it might need more than a soaking, I went to what they have, called an Express Clinic. 9 AM to 7 PM. it is right in the hospital. Emergencies use another entrance. This is non emergency , simple stuff. In three days, I took myself there , twice. Easy in and easy out. Took care of my finger with  charm and grace, painlessly lanced the wound,the sent out a culture,gave me some more meds , a bandaid and I was home in less than an hour. This is not a trauma hospital. Serious cases get air lifted to Seattle. But for what I needed , it was perfect. Now I have a vet and an Express Clinic. I'm covered.

Don't quite know how this got to me but it was on the top line of my computer (not in email) But I really enjoyed it. I truly admire you.

Everything sounds so wonderful Leona. Venice will seem boring . I would want to move to Portownsend where the kids are living. All sounds great . Is there?
