Friday January 23, 2015 Jenner CA.
I was determined to get an appointment today for a endoscope to look for these BBQ brush wires in my throat. I wasn’t sure who to call, so I took a stab at it thinking I could get transferred to the right department which I did.
I left a message that I’d be near the phone until ten thirty, and didn’t get a call back, so I went off to Jenner to kayak for the day.
The sun was out and the wind was down when I arrived and put my boat in the water.
I crossed over to Penny Island where this bird in the big tree caught my attention. I was looking up there trying to determine what it was when a bald headed eagle flew over and headed up the river and out of sight. I never did figure out what this bird was, some kind of hawk.
Lost my pocket knife
Last night I couldn’t find my pocket knife and was trying to figure out what I did with it. The last time I could remember using it, was yesterday on our hike. I had used it when I was resting at eagle’s landing, so it must be there, so I was gong to have to stop there and check.
Heavy fog moves in
From there, I crossed back over the river to Muskrat nest beach where I sat a good while taking a break and enjoying the day.

Fog is coming back again
The fog really moves in now
I finally made that appointment
I pulled my boat out of the water and went on home early today as I was going to give that appointment call another chance.
When I arrived home, I made another call immediately leaving a message that I’d be by the phone the rest of the day and hit the couch for a nap. An hour or so later, I got the call. They seemed to be setting me up for a colonoscopy for some reason. When I realized that, I asked what procedure I was getting. A colonoscopy. What? It seems I am overdue for one, but lets get to the pressing issue, the wire, I said to the guy. The other can wait.
So, I’m now set up for an endoscopy for next Friday to look for any of these small bbq brush wires I may have swallowed. That’s good. I guess I should of made that call about a week ago.
