Here is the latest health tip from Dr. T. Vulch: “Good day, citizens. I am here to perhaps save your lives by passing on this latest scientific information about heart attacks and the use of aspirin in such an event. Try to keep aspirin by your bedside, in your pocket, in your car. There are other symptoms of a heart attack besides the pain in the left arm. One may also be aware of an intense pain on the chin, as well as nausea and lots of sweating; however these symptoms may occur less frequently. There may be no pain in the chest during a heart attack. However, if it occurs, the chest pain may wake you up from your deep sleep. If that happens, immediately dissolve two aspirins in your mouth and swallow them with a bit of water. Immediately call 911 and say “heart attack – I have taken two aspirins!” Then phone a neighbor or a family member who lives very close by and ask them to come over; meanwhile take a seat on a chair or sofa near the front door and wait for their arrival. DO NOT lie down.” 

I’m outta here. Gotta see a man about a sheep. Remember to keep your windows cracked if you leave a pet in your vehicle. “Let us prey.” Humbly yours, Turkey Vulture. Contact me through the Letters Page or at <>.

PS. Missing the Venerable Pheasant. Keep on humming, Hummingbird. On the sheep, Grace.
