Well, except for waking up about 5am with a dull headache that a couple of Advil took care of pretty quickly, my first night with a new hole in my head went pretty nicely.

No real pain except for the occasional headache, and a feeling that the top of my head is tight, I guess because my scalp was stretched to cover the wound.

About 10 Jan took off the bandage to clean and moisten the wound. I’m supposed to use Vaseline or Neosporin to keep it moist each time I re-bandage it so it won’t scab over

While I had the bandage off, Jan took a couple of photos, but since some people might feel they’re a little gross, I posted them on a separate page if you want to look.

But don’t blame me if it puts you off your feed.

Jan and I sat outside with our coffee and muffins for a little while, but, although it wasn’t real hot, it was pretty muggy, so we didn’t stay out as long as usual, much to Mister’s dismay.

I don’t know if it’s because of the surgery, but I did feel kind of washed out today, so I pretty much goofed off the entire time.

Finally, about 3pm Jan and I drove down to Martin’s Supermarket to pick up a few things, including more gauze and tape for my head. While we were there, I got a call from the Doctor’s office just checking up on me to be sure everything was all right.

Nice people.

About 4:30 we headed out with Nick and Terry to have dinner at the Flippin’ Cow. a new-to-us hamburger place on Lake Simonton near our RV Park.

Flippin' Cow

The last time we ate here it was called Lakeshore Grill and was pretty good. Apparently the same people still own it, they’ve just changed it over to a burger joint.

And a very GOOD burger joint.

In fact, their ‘Stella Moo’ burger has been voted The Best Burger in Elkhart County, and is now in the runoff  with one other place for the Best Burger in seven counties that comprise the Michiana area. The winner will be announced July 7th.

And if I can find where to vote, I would certainly vote for the Stella Moo that I had, shown below.

Stella Moo Burger

It has two steak burger patties topped with smoked beef brisket, jalapeno bacon, onion straws, pepper jack cheese, and Alehouse BBQ sauce on a toasted wheat brioche bun. Then I added tomatoes, jalapenos, spicy mayo, and sweet heat pickles,

This has got to be the absolute best burger I’ve ever eaten. And Jan said the same about the one she got.

We’ve already planned to go back next Wednesday because it’s $1.99 burger night and the burgers are cheaper.

But as much as I like the Stella Moo, I’m also tempted to try their Hunka Hunka Burger Love. It has two steak burger patties, peanut butter, jalapeno jelly, smoked bacon, and pepper jack cheese on a toasted pretzel bun.

Decisions, decisions.


Thought for the Day:

"There is a class of colored people who make a business of keeping the troubles, the wrongs, and the hardships of the Negro race before the public. Some of these people do not want the Negro to lose his grievances, because they do not want to lose their jobs. There is a certain class of race-problem solvers who don’t want the patient to get well." – Booker T. Washington

  1. Well, Greg…I am sure this is not that much fun…but somehow you always seem to make us laugh anyway!! As a seamstress, I would say the stitching job was quite good…I would think you might not have much of a scar…of course, for a man, maybe that is a mark of distinction.

    I say…that burger looked like a heart stopper…I hope you are eating light and LOTS of veggies inbetween…heh!

    You need to stand up and be a man. Tell us true you back talked Jan and she did that to you not the doctor. LOL
    Doesn’t look too bad. Hopefullt it will heal quickly.

  3. “Don’t look Ethel”

    I took your advice and did not click on the links to the pictures of your head.

    But I have no problem looking at food pictures.


    P. S. Good luck in recovery

  4. Wow, what a burger! I can’t wait until we’re back in the area in September.

  5. Thanks for making the link Greg. Seeing that above the juicy burger pic would have ruined the moment. I have a nice scar on my sternum if I want to see a carcinoma scar. Here’s to a speedy recovery…….

    It looks like a nice crater is forming up there on top of the head. Keep a stiff upper lip and I am sure you will make the best of it. The hamburger looks great and hope it takes the pain away. hope for a speedy recovery!!!

  7. I wonder how many calories that Stella Moo burger has…wow!

  8. Patrick,

    Well, it wasn’t Jan this time, but she’s certainly capable of it.

    I’ve seen her shoot.

  9. Thanks, Tom.

  10. Debbie,

    I don’t think I want to know.
