The rather cryptic subtitle refers to the Jiminy Cricket character who rode the shoulder of Gipetto's puppet Pinocchio who was turned into a boy and required advice to prevent his nose from growing if he didn't tell the whole truth. The original intent involved critiques of Barry County government where the whole truth rarely emerged. Later, the blog focused on visits to our winter home in Costa Rica.
This summer and winter have been the occasion of experiencing three different forms of healthcare and observing the lack of the whole truth compared with my own personal experience and observation. The cricket has returned.
