Dinosaur Sighting

I was back home the past few days because of a family situation that fortunately turned out to be nothing. Drove back to school last night and now I’m trying to get back into study mode.

Had some down time yesterday afternoon and decided to surf the net for a bit and read a few medical blogs. While doing so, I ran across a couple of new ones that I really think would be of interest to med students. (New to me, anyway.)

I made a quick blog post yesterday about one of them (Suture for a Living) and today I’m going to take a study break and tell you about the other one, namely, Musings of a Dinosaur.

Musings is authored by a family doc in private practice; thus his use of the term, Dinosaur. I spent about an hour reading through his most recent posts and I have to tell you it was difficult to drag myself away. His writing contains a nice mix of humor, sage wisdom, and practical advice in a style that is engaging and personable.

I don’t know why, but images of “Doc” from the old “Gunsmoke” television series readily came to mind as I was reading through his posts. (Although it’s obvious he has a modern practice and he’s not that old.)

Still, I couldn’t help wondering if he has one of these.

You know, for house calls.

But seriously, I digress. If it weren’t for my Dad needing help out in the garage, I’d probably still be reading. I’m going to add this one to my regular reading list just as soon as I figure out this whole RSS thingy.

Came via Dinosaur's blog. Your wit and humor are wonderful. Good luck as you move through med school.

Hi Deb, Thanks for the kind words. I often wonder if people get my strange sense of humor. :)
