I'm usually a little reticent to read medical novels or watch medical television shows because of all the medical drama I've had myself. Bad thoughts abound usually, but I decided to give one of my pulp novels a try, Hospital Doctor by Edward Young, published in 1952. Medical novels and romances were all the rage at the time this book was published. While they may not be bestsellers today, the medically based television shows are still a TV staple. And surprisingly, I do enjoy The Knick and Ripper Street, which often have medical scenes, but the others are too much for me. Maybe the historical context helps diminish the trauma. Or maybe it's because of the lack of all the medical device beeping which seems to amplify anxiety.

This year has been rough. I always feel like I apologize for lack of posting, but as usual, I haven't been. No wonder the follower number has been dropping like crazy. So, how can I sum up my year and plan for the next?

I have been obsessed with reading about the amazing Sphinx set piece that has been found and reassembled in a California desert. The sphinx was rediscovered after being buried for decades. It was rediscovered and is currently being reassembled with Elmer's Glue no less, and will be on display at the Guadalupe Dunes Center. I am totally intrigued. It's definitely another thing to add to my bucket list! Who knew there was such an important Hollywood set hidden? Who knows what else could be found out there?
