ENT ~ The Mediterranean Gang ~ Talk Like A Pirate

Good 49ยบ morning.

Yesterday was busy, trip to the vet with Maggs and then an appointment in the afternoon with my ENT Dr. Reeck in Medford.

Jay Reeck, MD
Ear, Nose, Throat, Head and Neck Surgeon; Otolaryngology
Super neat guy, nice, fun to talk to. This seems to be where the only ENT doctors are in the region. Patients come from No. California, Nevada, and Central Oregon.

After all those weird tests (hot and cold air blown into my ears and photos of my eyeballs.....) he said there is absolutely nothing wrong with my ears... equilibrium... or balance center in my brain. See.... every test comes back 10-4!!! Sigh.

Ok, so that over I headed to The Mediterranean in Grants Pass and hooked up with Dee&Dale, Joe&JoAnn, Jeannie&Bill. Retsina, martinis, chardonnay, & champagne were the drinks. We indoctrinated our new server, Carson. He is very nice and makes a great martini!

Jeannie had the appetizer with pita and garlic bread..Babaganoush, creamy feta, and olive tepenade.

Bill had the Caesar Salad with seared Ahi ....

And I had my standby and favorite .... Moussaka with Potato Cakes..
I got extra potato cakes so I could have a couple for breakfast with eggs on top! Sooooooo good!

Here is the whole motley crew. We got together because Joe and JoAnn were over here from Depoe Bay for her dad's birthday....
L-R me, Jeannie, Dee, Dale, JoAnn, Joe, Billy
