Ms. Lowden's remarks got me to thinking and I happened to have an appointment with my doctor for a routine check-up. I asked him if he would take my latest crocheted afghan instead of cash. He told me it was good enough for two visits, but if he took it instead of cash, Ima was going to be mad because she tried to pawn off a couple of woven pot holders her grandson made for a boil removal and besides he couldn't eat the afghan. Well, I don't raise chickens any more having moved to town a few years back, but next time I'm going to bring the doctor a big screen TV.

Bring a Chicken to your Doctor
In Nevada U.S. Senate candidate Sue Lowden elaborated on her statements in an appearance Monday on “Nevada Newsmakers,” saying: “Before we all started having health care, in the olden days our grandparents, they would bring a chicken to the doctor." Lowden said Thursday that Harry Reid is trying to make her look bad over remarks suggesting a return to the barter system with doctors. “Harry Reid is trying to change the subject from his 2,700 pages of government-run health care,” she said after a breakfast meeting in Reno.
