We found something even scarier FOTS . Look carefully at the above video to see a " Dog " which eats w his hands which look like CLOVEN HOOFS . I think this creature is a missing link and like no " Dog " I have ever seen . Never heard a growl like that either . Part Monkey part Hyena like I would say about Obama ( if it weren't so racist ) . This nocturnal night stalker was said to be a blood leach harvesting fluid not flesh from its prey . There is your vampire legend right there FOTS and in the flesh so to speak , which experts still call a dog w extreme mange . I think this couple stumbled upon a scientific goldmine BTW . A previously unknown species in North America w ghastly habits . There will be a lot of speculation over its lineage .

I went looking recently for a picture once seen somewhere ( PBS maybe ) of my beloved old boss , a really sweet 35 year old black guy named Albert Irving . He died in 1970 . I had worked for him five years and learned a lot from him . A google search seemed the way to go so I searched their OR photo collection taken of Michael Debakey ( Heart Surgeon , MASH creator ) who was also an employee of Baylor College of Medicine . Along w a couple Nobel Prize winners Denton Cooley worked for them too . Their 50 year spat over ownership of the first Heart assist pump was written about last week and those photos inspired my search for Albert which continues today . I had appeared in at least one Cooley write up back then myself , in Life magazine . Look at every photo in their layout . One contains my left foot . I am so proud . I was of course just a gopher scurrying through the background , and not like these guys . I couldn't believe I could ID four faces in a 50 year old photo and w all of them modestly wearing their chadorable headgear and masks . Maybe there is hope for me identifying Sharia in her school photo yet .
I was again surprised to recognize so many co-workers in a photo from so long ago , but here I recognize Ted Dietrich as the assistant and Camel Girgis as the assisting anesthesiologist . He was a Coptic Egyptian , run from his homeland by the um , ummah back in the early 60s . I wnna call the circulating Nurse Nan , and the little mid eastern scrub tech is familiar too , but her name escapes me . I suspect George Noon was surgically assisting L , but I cannot tell for sure . Dietrich was hired away to Phoenix where he opened their Heart center . He and I shared a moment between Methodist Fondren Brown OR 3 and OR 4 . He had a heart in a bucket from the newly deceased in OR 3 , clamped across the aortic arch w an enormous Hemostat . Every time it beat it clanged its sterile stainless bucket like a clapper yelling out I am alive even external to my original body . I will never forget that moment , and Ted Dietrich won't either , wherever he is today some 50 years later .Modern Cardiac care was born there FOTS . I consider myself fortunate to have wandered thru and seen their success . You , and the rest of the world are fortunate that they had so much of it .Your lives are longer because of them . We stand in awe and salute these veterans and dedicated physicians and all who assisted them from that day to this . They have earned our highest regards .
