TB: Your shoes sometimes, uh? P: Mm-hum. Yeah, they hurt sometime. I thought I had something in my sock. TB: Yeah, so what’s happening your nail grows around of the toe your toes are all curled and the nails are curled over the toe and so there’s so much pressure on the tip of the toe that we’re getting some hard skin to grow. P: Sure. TB: So we’re gonna trim it back and see what kind of hard skin we got underneath, okay? P: Sure. (music) TB: Let’s see now you’re no more of an American boy you’re a Canadian boy now, huh? P: Yes, sir. I wouldn’t doubt I would pick arms up for Canada. TB: Oh. P: I would. I think Canada is a great country. TB: How many years now in Canada? P: Oh, my parents come up after the war they come up in 1946 and then I went back, I worked over there and my parents lived up here I’ve been a Canadian maybe 30 years. You need citizenship when I got married. TB: Yep. P: Then I became right after that I became a Canadian. I’ve always worked over there. TB: Always huh? P: Yeah I wouldn’t give up my car my truck and um that’s what I knew best. But I think Canada’s great country. I think down the road TB: If anything hurts you let me know, okay?
P: Sure. TB: But you don’t see yourself going back, huh? P: No I would never and we never ever go back. I like our health care up here. It’s just fantastic compared down there if you don’t have money you don’t get fixed you know what I mean? The plan Obama had was a good plan and Trump blew it all the hell. TB: Well for us Canadians, I’m not too sure how it is down there, but I know it’s very different. It is different. P: You know you can’t even buy Tylenol 1 down there? You’re gonna get a prescription. Um, I mailed my sister down or when I go down I take a whole bunch down and she had um oh about six years ago she had cancer of the breast, anyway she was in three different hospitals. The Blue Cross (insurance) ran out and (?) if this is dumb if it’s stupid, her husband was a vet (veteran) when he went to the doctor well, that was Clinton’s idea but anyway, they moved the Vet’s (veterans) hospital they shut a lot of them down and they had to go to New York City that’s oh a four hour drive for a Canadian. TB: Geeze. P: So they used to go up the night before and get a hotel and then they would go to the hospital for the day but he was a vet. TB: Not easy, huh? P: They treat their vets like crap over there, too. I don’t like that. TB: So we got that piece out. P: Oh good. TB: And there’s just some hard skin. P: Good. TB: So it should feel much better. But you’re you’ve been pretty good coming every couple weeks, but your nails grew you’re a growing boy. P: Yeah! TB: You’re a growning boy so all done, okay?
