"S" is for Stoogefest. I attended the 16th annual Stoogefest last night at a local theater. It took place in the Riviera Theater, a picture palace built in 1928 and recently restored to its former beauty. Me, my cousin Patrick and about 800 other fans of the Three Stooges enjoyed an evening of eight Stooge shorts dating from 1936 to 1959. Nyuk, nyuk, nyuk.
"S" is also for seizure. My 14-year-old pitbull mix has developed a seizure disorder in the past nine months. She has averaged two per month with no evident pattern. They just come on her and afterwards, she acts just like Dorothy in the wizard of Oz when she wakes up back in Kansas. She's so happy to see us and is in a highly excited state for a few hours. I have to dose her with an extra phenobarbatol and I give her a bowl of vanilla ice cream to restore her blood sugar level. I have the heart-sinking feeling that some day she will have a seizure and not come out of it.
