Janis, good luck in pursuing your degree. It's in a much needed specialty.
Thanks, Salmonmac! The knitting is great therapy, and now that I'm venturing into socks, all family and friends will reap the bounty!
Most of the people working at the VA are great folks, and I really enjoy my coworkers. And, every so often I get presents from patients:
home grown tomatoes, gift cards for Whole Foods, Starbucks, Barnes and Noble, crocheted mug rugs, candy bars, a knife???? and one guy wanted to give me a pound of marijuana (which I politely refused, eegads!). Best of all is when a little old WWII vet gives me a hug! So I really do have a great job most days!
