I'm grateful for you crusty old bats

    Nowhere else is it permissible to crack up over a death. Nowhere else are gross things normal. Nowhere else can I vent about a ream of awful prima donna patients without being told I have no compassion.

    Y'all know who you are. And thanks.

    When the pawpaw hits the fan, always get behind the resident old bat. Where there are bats, there are usually balls....

    I love crusty old bats. I love BEING a crusty old bat. Because when you're a crusty old bat, very little fazes you or makes you afraid. Thanks for recognizing the crusty old bat contingent!

    I think I am going to get a t-shirt made that reads:

    I am a crusty old bat
    I am not afraid of things that go 'splat'!

    Some may call me jaded
    But many a patient I have aided.

    As the years fly by
    I am described as spry.

    And then I think back
    When I didn't know jack.

    From crusty old bats I have learned much
    Because they showed me the value of a nurse's touch.

    Here's to crusty old bats! May we live long and not have all of our joints replaced before we retire!

    The ship has sailed on that one!!! I have had bilateral hip and bilateral knee replacements already!!
    There is not much more to replace! I am a lot of fun at the Airport
