Oh oh – here I was nauseated, sweating profusely, about ready to puke – and my nitroglycerine tablets were elsewhere.
Our young friend Rehar the Safety Guy, an EMT, had admonished me to have my nitro on my person at all times. “Your meds will do you no good sitting on the kitchen shelf,” Rehar had said.
Fortunately, fellow golfer Darrell had his little nitro container in his pocket – and I was soon out of trouble. So SAINTED be Darrell, an old U.S. Navy medic, nurse practitioner and EMT – and thanks also to the St. Paul firemen who were nearby and checked into my situation – and thanks also to the beautiful bartender who got me icewater and a cold bar rag for my neck. All this at Neumann’s Bar in North St Paul on a very hot 90-degree Monday.
A final thanks to golfer Pat who followed me as I drove home and arrived safely. Thanks again.
And I will learn to carry my nitro on my person.
Oh yes – the beverages and burgers were excellent. Thanks.

A big SAINTED to Kent Christy at Kent Optical in West St. Paul. My favorite and only up-to-date eyeglass frames broke a few weeks ago. I took them to the place of purchase but they were not able to help even though they’re less then a year and a half old. They suggested a jeweler but they were no longer in business as so many are these days.
Kent, though, was able to get me in very quickly and get them soldered at a very reasonable price. Thanks again!

Here’s a tainted for the sake of all baseball fans. Whenever I watch the Twins on Fox Sports North, or a game on MLBTV or other Fox sites or ESPN, I can hardly hear the announcers because of the piped in background noise.
The powers that be apparently want you to feel the crowd is really into the game even though the stands are empty because of the pandemic. It irritates me no end because the noise overwhelms the announcers and prevents me from hearing what the announcers have to say without straining my ears. Often, I turn the TV to mute or down and enjoy the game by reading the captions and viewing the action.
Can someone please get a message to the big shots that make that decision and get off that irritating background noise?

I would like to Saint the lady who paid for my lunch at McDonald’s on South Street in Inver Grove Heights. I was wondering what was taking her so long to get through the cashier window. She was paying for my supper too

Sainted to the party that flagged a blue Dodge Ram pickup truck near Menomonie, Wis., on the morning of Aug. 13 to alert the driver that the tailgate was open, and sainted to the party who rescued a red and white cooler at the entrance ramp of I-94 East on Carmichael Road in Hudson on the same morning, setting it safely on the median.
Nothing was broken or lost thanks to these good neighbors.

A huge SAINTED goes to the doctors, nurses, aids, and all of the other medical staff at Regions Hospital who worked diligently to help me survive COVID-19! They are a great team. They not only gave me great care but also kept my family informed daily of my progress while I was hospitalized for eight days as no family members could visit me.
Another big Sainted goes to the chefs — the food was as good as any 5-star restaurant and always brought to my room hot and in a timely manner. And much appreciation to the housekeeping staff especially during this time of Covid-19. A huge thank you to everyone who works at Regions Hospital.
