Rememer I told you guys about Jeff Griffith, the guy from our hometown of Santa Fe, TX? He played the Riverfront at Fan Fair, and was GREAT! Now he is going to be interviewed on GAC by Bill Cody on June 27th at 9 a.m., and 2 p.m. Check him out. He is really good, and VERY Country! I just love him.
I was so proud at CMAFEST when he played at The Riverfront. He was well received! He also played at Ernest Tubb's Record Shop live on WSM radio. WOW ----- I can remember when he was born, and can remember him being a little boy! He certainly turned into a 'star'! Can't wait to see how far he goes!
Watch him on GAC and see what a Southern Gentleman he is! His Mom was my Sunday school teacher for years! Jeff is a doll!!!!!!! His whole family is good people!!!!!!!
Did anyone see him at CMAfest?

Guess I was the only one to watch Jeff today on GAC. He was very poised. I was pretty proud of him. I wish him much success.

Awww...I just read this post now. Otherwise, I would have checked it out to report back to you! I haven't been very good at keeping up around here, but now that I have a bit more spare time I'll check back more often. I'll keep watching for reruns of Jeff!

I don't have GAC...plus I had to take my grandmother to the dr this afternoon...she's been having trouble breathing...turns out she has a respirtory infection. She couldn't get an appointment with her regular dr. until July 16, so I took her to the walk-in clinic they have at the hospital clinic. He gave her 3 prescriptions to have filled...1 an antibiotic, the other two for inhalers, including one for Advair...when we got to Walmart and I got the prices for each of the prescriptions, we only had the antibiotic filled, because to have all 3 filled would have cost around $270, and that was with her prescription discount card! The price of the Advair alone was $188!! After we left Walmart, we had to go right past the clinic, so I stopped in to see if anyone was still there, and even though they were closed, the nurse was still there, so I told her that we had the antibiotic filled, but couldn't afford the other two, and a couple minutes later she comes out with a bag of samples...1 box of Advair and 2 boxes of Proventil. Now why the generic of Proventil (Albuterol Sulfate) costs 10x more than regular Albuterol, I couldn't tell you...Walmart has Albuterol on it's $4 prescription list, but could the dr. have given her a prescription for that? No...he had to give her the more expensive one.

Oh Val, I hate to hear that, but thank goodness the nurse helped your G-Mamma out! WOW prescriptions are unbelievably high! I feel for the ones who need and can't afford. Hope your grandmother starts feeling better soon.

Thanks, Cathy! She already took one dose of the antibiotics...she'll take another dose at dinner tomorrow night. She used one dose of the Advair, but said she didn't think anything came out of it...but it's a very fine powder, and they say that even if you think nothing came out it did. Right now she's still not feeling real good...she's been having trouble sleeping because of the shortness of breath. She does have a history of asthmam but this is the first time it's flared up in years. She had a couple of old Albuterol inhalers that she got while we were still in FL, but because they were so old they didn't help much...but at least it was something she could use. She must have had some kind of asthma attack in FL before we moved or else the dr. wouldn't have prescribed it for her, and before we did move, we got a refill on the prescription while we could so we'd have it handy in case of an emergency.
I don't know if you've heard this, but a lot of counties are now providing discount prescription cards to their residents. Bell County is going to start soon...we're both going to sign up for it, because I don't have any type of health insurance whatsoever, and if I got sick like I did one year when we were still in FL and I needed a prescription filled, any discount would be better than none...and even though my grandmother does have the prescription discount card thru her health insurance, a second one wouldn't hurt to have, because you never know which one would give you the best price.
