Bop get that attitude straight. Loree is right there all the time. It's not her fault the doctors are such morons--or maroons. They just have to have somebody to practice on--it's their practice.

Drove out Russell road today and found a covered mall in Henderson. Good place to kill some time in.

Joseph, do those people know who your Brooklyn relatives are?

Maybe you should have somebody call 'em back with an offer they can't refuse:

"Hey, Youse --- no truck, no balls!"

LOL LOL LOL, etc.

THAT oughtta do it!

Oh, well, I made it to my diabetes doc and took a little bit of razzing about my bad habits and my high sugars. Still....he knows what back pain is, and now that we've been doing this dance for 30 years together, he says I'm not doing all that badly.

I sure like that boy.

Later, y'all...I need to get a prescription filled and one picked up.

Loree, if the Boop gives you grief, feed it right back at em'...

A nice dry cool 48°F this AM at 3:45..I love it.

The Bonested Farm has been infested with GIANT turkey vultures perched on the old oak dairy barn for 9-10 days a hour before sunset...

Kinda spooky with 10-12 feet high field corn surrounding the compound.

In other news -- Puerto Rican girls just dying to meet you"

'Miss you'...I just caught that one on Detroit Classic Rock through my puter with headphones. Cool, huh?

Good morning~

Both Don and I slept most of yesterday. After being awake continuously for almost 30 hours, I needed it. Don is still pretty congested today, but at least he has some super-antibiotics to knock down the pneumonia, and although he is in a lot of pain from the bilateral hernia surgery, it is manageable.

Too bad his attitude sucks............

It's very nice outside this morning. 62° temp, 61° dew point, 100% humidity with a slight breeze, per the WeatherBug. They're calling for rain today and tomorrow, but nothing on the [local] radar, yet.

Have a great day everyone! Later

I'll re-adjust my butt today

Loree, things are tough all over for you and The Boop. I sure am sorry. Next time I do some of my pleadings, I'll throw in one for you and him, too.

Can't do a lot of direct comments right now....gotta GO!

....but, Geezer, that was sorta halfway-middling-more-or-less funny.

Just about midnight, I had to call the paramedics. After a trip to the ER via ambulance, it turns out Don also has pneumonia. They held him there for over four hours, gave him breathing treatments, oxygen, and antibiotics, then sent him home.

He is currently sitting in the recliner with icepacks on the surgery sites, and once his time is up with the ice, I am sending him to bed. After over hours awake myself, I am also going to take a well deserved nap.........

Good morning all!

El Psycho Bone, CenterPoint Energy is upgrading their gas mains while the city of Bloomington is upgrading the sewer system around here. The city is also installing sidewalks and curbs, and to finish off the entire project, the streets in question are being resurfaced. Any tree, fence, bush, shed and/or whatever within five feet of the street has been or will be removed.

Of course, we're all going to be assessed five digits to pay for it all!

joelimo, 03:00! That's early for a man with so much to do. Hope you don't over-do it!

WR-INC, when we first got Barney some 17-18 yrs ago, a little cockapoo showed up at our side door yipping and a yapping away. We thought she thought that she was home and couldn't get in. We took her in and had her for almost two days until her owner saw our poster on a telephone pole and called my wife. It turned out the little critter got out at their gate which was mistakenly left open by their little girl. They lived three streets down from us. That little critter was very lucky to have made it all the way here without getting ran over.

When my Tootz was spaded last October, I had the vet place a microchip in her and now, with a yearly membership, I can track her if she was ever 'get out' and the Good Lord forbid, gets ran over... I can use the iphone app to track her down! It's pretty cool stuff. With my stupidity, I suppose I could easily mistakenly do something stupid which I'm sure with Tootz' level of curiosity, she'd definitely take advantage of, and get out. Besides my stupidity, she's turning into a digger...

Sun's about up, so we're outta here for our am walk!

Have a great day everyone! Later

Happy (early) Wednesday!

We just finished playing cards with our daughter and her boyfriend. It was a fun time.

Doc - yep pretty close - about 7 miles from where we are staying.

My wife and I relaxed a good bit this evening (for several hours actually) at the beach watching the tide come in and the sun go down.

Off to bed now for an early rise to see the sunrise followed by a kayak tour.

Have a great day all!

BoneHead, I'll send that pic tomorrow, but I warn you not to stare--- that's bad for your blood pressure. lol

Give the boy a big smooch for me, Loree. If you tell him it's from me, I know he'll love that.

I was only in that general area once, grmoore, back when we traveled to the Border Patrol Academy at/near Brunswick, GA to attend Son Jon's graduation and to bring him home. That's really close to where you are/were, right? I liked that whole area, from Jacksonville, FL, up. Didn't actually get to the coast, though.

Wellum, I'm gon' check out my Facebook stuff, then get to bed early. Sure do love y'all.

Happy evening to everyone!

Just getting home from dropping my grandson off. We had a great day watching the crews take down three full grown, mature maple trees. One was dropped from across the street, one from next door and one from two houses down on my side. He was in awe! His eyes got so big when that first came down!

I don't understand this point system, not that I pay much attention to gb points. I understood yesterday was bonus points day? I got like 2,225 showing for today. I don't get it. Oh well.

We are home, finally. They wound up doing a bilateral hernia repair, so he was in longer than expected. He was in so much pain that they wound up giving him three shots of Demarol at about minute intervals before I could even get him into the car. With that amount of drugs in him, he should sleep at least another 10 hours. Gave me time to run some errands and pick up more prescription pain pills at the pharmacy. It's going to be a really rough week or so for both of us, though.

And the other good news--last night at midnight, my dogs went crazy at the front door. I opened it to find a teacup yorkie scratching to get in. Since it was so late, I decided to wait until we got home today to look for his owner. I called the number on his tag, and less than 10 minutes later one of his humans was knocking on my door. So today two families have been blessed--Don's gonna live, and another family has its furbaby back

Happy Tuesday!

It's been a busy day so I'm just finishing up my postings. I had to work a bit today with the monthly 8:00a overseas call. I didn't miss much here at SSI, as like clockwork: right before the call started it started pouring rain and right as the call was finishing at 9:00a, it stopped. How's that for timing.

Today's events included: climbing the SSI lighthouse, visiting Fort Frederica, having some lunch at a local Mexican restaurant in the village, riding bikes to reserve a kayak tour for tomorrow morning, and continuing down to play putt-putt golf (I finished second our daughter's boyfriend) and riding back to the house. Now down to the beach for a bit.

Hope everyone had a great day!

Doc, that is a good song, but I'm still on Neil Young's side. He grew up in TO and a tiny place called Omemee before moving to Winnipeg. (Sid, if I ever use the names Winterpeg or simply The 'Peg that's what I mean, okay?)

Just a heads up, the "museum" is now closed. Our family went to visit in March 2013 and were disappointed to find out that the man who owned and created the "exhibit" had moved to Arizona and brought the roaches with him.
and even with Tiny URL it wouldn't post and I was Pooped So I was Aggravated!

would you believe the truck company that I gave a Lotta money to to reserve the truck and trailer that I need called me and told me they had a "Mix Up " and they Haven't any truck for me on Friday,,,Cute Huh?
it took all day but I got a new rig from U haul but I have to wait till Monday Now,,,
Nuthin But Fun!

Today is going to be a rough one. WackiBoop is going in for outpatient surgery to have new repairs to a hernia originally repaired about 12 years ago. He was down for about a week then, and now he's older and of course his physical stamina is greatly reduced with all of the medical problems he's accrued since then.

If you could keep good thoughts for him and a prayer or two, I would really appreciate it.
