I Survived The Barium Enema X-Ray

I read all the horror stories on the gastro forums about the pain, cramping and discomfort people went through during the barium enema test. I prepared myself for the worst.

To prepare for the test I had to go on a two day fast. My test was on a Monday so I couldn’t have solid food all weekend. I survived on banana popsicles and lime Jello. I was starving!

Our Little Bubble Car The Isetta

October 24, 2016 Turtle Toots 0

Believe it or not the BMW Isetta was our family car in the late 1950’s. It seated three people which was perfect for my Mom, brother and me. Our Isetta was white with red interior with a sun roof on top. To get in you opened the front and climbed in then turned to sit down. It was a four speed with the gear shift on the left. It had to be like that because otherwise the gear shift would be in the way of the passengers. I am impressed that my Mom learned to shift with her left hand.
