The column that says that Gypsy has her surgery tomorrow at Delaware Valley Veterinary Hospital on Route 322 in Mullica Hill and GoFundMe for the gentle, 3-year-old pit bull, and thanks to Quack’s Corner’s generous $100 contribution, the total has swelled to $415 out of the $900 needed, so God bless every one of you animal lovers.

Good evening!

Scene: Parking garage for Jefferson Hospital in Philly.

Leaving from the 6th level after seeing Dr. Greg Kane.

A man waves us down.

“I’ve been waiting for a tow truck all day. I have my grandmother in the car and I need seven dollars for a taxi.

“Where is your grandmother?”

“She’s back there.”

“We don’t have any money.”

Not a strong smell of alcohol, but a lingering one.

Had the grandmother been right there in a car, we might have bought his story. Back there didn’t get it.

We’ve become a magnet for lost souls, and Mike Abbott, who hates even Code Blue, loves it.

We’ve got a shot to have on Saturday’s program at 1 p.m. on 92.1 FM both a Camden City cop with 10 years of experience and a prosecutor who wanted to call us on last week’s show, but Mike Abbott wouldn’t shut up long enough for us to give out the number.

We called him back and he’s looking at his schedule to see if he can come on with Jorje Romero, who thinks noon means 12:20.

Romero, owner of the stone house on West Commerce Street, was a Camden City officer for 10 years until somebody burned down his house and torched his car.

This prosecutor told us nothing has changed despite going to a county police force.

If Dr. Highbloom is available at Cooper and not working on Pepi Dragotta, we may need him to fix a  mitral heart valve, an echocardiogram has shown.

But first comes a lung cat scan to find out what 30 years of pipe smoking hath wrought in conjunction with breathing problems.

Then might come a pet scan to see if little dots light up, signifying lung cancer in the footsteps of Jonathan P. Casey, Verna Saul and other friends.

It’s just precautionary.

See all the things you can have done when you have Medicare with a Plan F medigap.

It’s like a whole bunch of mechanics working on your car at the same time while they take $462 out of your Social Security.

A sleep apnea test alone costs $2,800, and that doesn’t include the machine. We’ll let you guess what heart valve surgery will run.

But think of those not yet eligible for Medicare and no insurance, and what they can’t afford to have done.

“Thank you so very much, Sally’s Beauty Supply shop (between Hobby Lobby and Walmart) for donating 2 huge bags filled with goodies for us to hand out to our guests tomorrow night at Millville Code Blue during our PIT survey.

“It is very appreciated. I know the guests will appreciate them very much.

“Remember to support the businesses that support our citizens. Please tell Sally’s thank you!”

Speaking of Jorje Romero:

“We need to save all of our town treasurezsbefore it’s too late.

“If we can have a Save the Library, Friends of the Park, and Zoological Society, why can’t we have a Bridgeton Historical Preservation, Acquisition and Rehabilitation Committee/Group with some power to do the job.”

— Jorje Romero,

Bridgeton Main Street

That’s why we have Flavia Alaya and CHABA.

There is a historical commission.

They are in the witness protection program.

Saturday, just got a little of your radio show.

“The prehistoric museum was mentioned.

“Allen Carmen worked our farm in the winter of 63/64 he dug along the cat swamp and found many things, some almost complete pots, in the museum.

“They are labeled Greenwich  but they and many other things came from our farm.”

— Shep

Shep runs the maritime museum in Greenwich.

Greenwich is all history, but missing dikes.

Shep says he is depressed. Talk to him, world! PTSD is hell.

“The Levoy is nominated for NJ Arts People Choice awards and so is WheatonArt, Millville Arts District and others.

“Also, note that in all categories is the word OTHER. Type in Levoy or something local if you feel they deserve a vote!

“I did. One vote per email address only!”

Headed for Cumberland County?

Pascale Sykes Foundation and Melissa Helmbrecht Kappeler can make it happen.

Send goodwill ambassador Bruce Riley on a mission to Taipei.

Foxconn, the world’s largest contract electronics maker, is considering setting up a display-making plant in the United States in an investment that would exceed $7 billion, company chairman and chief executive Terry Gou said on Sunday.

The plans come after U.S. President Donald Trump pledged to put “America First” in his inauguration speech on Friday, prompting Gou to warn about the rise of protectionism and a trend for politics to underpin economic development.

Foxconn’s proposal to build a display plant, which would be planned with its Sharp Corp <6753.T> unit, depend on many factors, such as investment conditions, that would have to be negotiated at the U.S. state and federal levels, Gou told reporters on the sidelines of a company event.

Gou said that Foxconn, formally known as Hon Hai Precision Industry Co <2317.TW>, had been considering such a move for years but the issue came up when Foxconn business partner Masayoshi Son, head of Japan’s SoftBank Group Corp <9984.T>, talked to Gou before a December meeting Son had with Trump.

As a result of the meeting, Son pledged a $50 billion of investment in the United States and inadvertently disclosed information showing Foxconn’s logo and an unspecified additional $7 billion investment.

At the time, Foxconn issued a brief statement saying it was in preliminary discussions to expand its U.S. operations, without elaborating.

“Good day for chicken pot pie.

“I never make it without hearing Sam Pierce saying, ‘Just keep rolling,’ when we would make it for the VFW. I sure miss those times.”

— Jane Uhland

Economy going to Delaware?

The sage speaks …

“One year ago today, Bridgeton had 11 inches of snow. Valley Forge had 30 inches. Don’t let a rainy Monday get you down.”

— Sam Feinstein

Will Rogers is gone, but we have our Sam.
