The column that says the woman manning the drive-thru window at Rite Aid Bridgeton tonight is so considerate she waved just a minute to us while waiting on someone at the counter, then rushed over and delivered 10 square cookies to our partner, making a friend for life, BUT … she put our care credit card in the bag with the medicine and that prompted us to tell the story of how we heard this morning that the better half’s debit card was lost — AGAIN — and we immediately told her it was in the prescription bag in the trash that she picked up for us Saturday — and it was, so why don’t they just put it under the spring on the clipboard they slip you to sign for the medicine?

200 laps again in the pool today set up a Wendy’s run and full-sized apple pecan chicken salad with double chicken to share with the full-sized Chesapeake Bay Retriever that has lost 10 pounds by swimming in the pool, and if the genius of Paul Pitts works magic on Monday, the pool will soon be heated.
The Cumberland County SPCA is threatening clsoure of its animal shlrter part on Dec. 31, so finding someone to blame continues …
“Looking at CCSPCA 990, the funding gap appears to be very large, at least in 2016.
“And if the trend continues, it is not going to improve. The county needs the shelter and may be the one to step up to the plate to cover the gap, or the municipalities will need to pay more for intake fees.
“Or maybe they can sell the naming rights to their building for a million and it be called the AT&T Animal Shelter at Cumberland County SPCA.
“In any case, they need everyone’s support.”

Time out for an important message …
HOW TO SURVIVE A HEART ATTACK WHEN ALONE
Since many people are alone when they suffer a heart attack without help, the person whose heart is beating improperly and who begins to feel faint, has only about 10 seconds left before losing consciousness.
However, these victims can help themselves by coughing repeatedly and very vigorously. A deep breath should be taken before each cough, and the cough must be deep and prolonged, as when producing sputum from deep inside the chest.
A breath and a cough must be repeated about every two seconds without let-up until help arrives, or until the heart is felt to be beating normally again.
Deep breaths get oxygen into the lungs and coughing movements squeeze the heart and keep the blood circulating. The squeezing pressure on the heart also helps it regain normal rhythm. In this way, heart attack victims can get to a hospital.
