Good evening! We're about to pack it in, after everyone deciding that we don't feel like doing anything that would require any more effort.

Overcast and cool up here at the cabin, which was OK for getting the lawn cut here. Of course that only took about 20 minutes. Now it's to get ready for the first annual Mike's Lane and area neighborhood party.

Got a quickie:

The lady that runs the "rescue" where we got our wonderful Sir Linus Too, a much-abused Shih-Tzu/Heinz57 pup, is facing a HUGE bill for the removal of a bigger-than-golfball-sized bladder stone from another abused pup. I've sent what I can, so I'm asking that any of you who can do so please send the lady a buck or two...or whatever you can...to help out. And please tell her you're a friend of mine.

Most easily, you can send her something via Paypal to gshillman33@yahoo.com

Also, you could just mail her a check (or a dollar or two in cash) to:

Sue Hillman
Tess' K9 Rescue
PO Box 471
Leming, TX 78050

Sue would thank you, Molly would thank you, the long-suffering vet would thank you....and I would give you a HUGE and SLOPPY kiss...on the cheeck, of course.

LOL LOL LOL, etc.

...and I promise never to plead for money again.

(But if you want to send me a black Beamer with gold wheels, high-speed mudflaps and a gas-saver foxtail, I WILL accept!)

LOL LOL LOL, etc., etc.

Oh, well...nothing like getting up with a decent blood sugar, even after having to deal with another "semi-low" before bedtime. This time I was smart enough NOT to shoot up the regular shot of Lantus with only a 145 to work with at bedtime. Heck with those lows! Instead, I had a sandwich and only shot HALF the usual amount of nighttime insulin. Now I'm up with the same 145. Don't get much better than that --- for me, anyway.

Wellum, I see I'm getting close to the 3,600,000 mark in points. Time flies. I remember when I was a noob and thought the old guys 'round here were smart. Now I guess they're all dead and I'm #2 in San Antonio and gaining like gangbusters on ol' BankFixer. Ah, well, IF/WHEN I either become #1 in San Antonio OR break into the TOP 100 OVERALL, I think I'll just up and retire. Right now I'm apparently stuck at #480 Overall.

Right now I'm sorta interested in "weeding out" my buds. Yesterday, I jokingly (to me) asked one if he was still fooling himself thinking that "juvenile" username scared people and he went all postal on me, talking about insults and he was leaving and I probably wouldn't be alive much longer anyway, etc. I just bid his happy ass "'Bye" and put him on iggy. Never did care for the ignorant teen type, anyway.

ANYway, 'sgonna be a good day: Sir Joseph is about to scratch gravel and ride off into the Tennessee Adventure Series; grmoore is about to go back to fun....I mean work; WR-INC is headed out AGAIN...as usual; Bone is sitting up there in the UP living it up with his stray cat, skunk, flock of buzzards, and (probably) a BIG-butted "Nagger" to keep him in line; MickD will probably go tooling off toReno or somewhere (more than likely NOT going to church there! lol); and JF might just have to put a snorkel on his lawn mower to cut the water cress in his back yard.

'ZataboutIT?

Happy Saturday. Last day in SSI and off to Savannah.

It's been a great vacation, but as the saying goes, all good things must come to an end.

The grand-girls absolutely loved the beach and water.

Off to continue the day.

Have a great day all!

Good morning all!

0.49" of rain since 00:00 hrs.

After conducting some Mr Google research, I've decided that later today I'm going to destroy one of my five tomato plants. Late Blight. As I understand the issue, I was negligent in allowing the vines to crawl onto Mother Earth. The fruit from the other four plants seem fine, so far.

If the lawn dries out later today, I'll get a bit of exercise mowing both front and back yards. Unlikely though as rain is in the forecast from now until Tuesday.

69° temp, 69° dew point, 100% humidity with little to no breeze!

Have a great Labor Day Weekend everyone!

Good morning.

Had another DAMnable low about three this morning, so I just rolled out about an hour ago. At least I managed to keep the "gobbling" down a bit, so I'm up with a halfway reasonable blood sugar now. That's the last time I'll go to sleep after only have a Special K breakfast sandwich, though...just not enough calories for a whole night.

Problem with that is I REALLY want to lose some weight...and I just KEEP on staying at about the same level.

No, Bone, I don't...it looks painful and dangerous, and it is for SURE ugly!

Sorry.

Loree, during WWII, when I was about nine or ten, I dreamed I was in an airplane that was on fire and going down. The pilot was a skinny woman who grabbed the ONLY parachute and jumped out the door. I managed to grab hold of one of her legs, and there we were, floating down toward the ground --- 'til I woke up holding on to the bedpost for dear life!

LOL LOL LOL, etc.

I also --- during that same time --- dreamed a German shot me in the chest with a .45 (No, not a Luger) and woke up with a terrible pain in my chest....which I never told my parents about, of course.

That wasn't funny.

Hope you and Penske work things out, Joseph.

....and everybody --- except Geezer --- knows the whole THING is Bush's fault!

LOL LOL LOL, etc., etc.

Joe, U-Haul is famous for keeping their best trucks local, so they probably rented it to someone local and you lost out. Too bad. I blame Obama.

Happy Friday!

Our son, d-in-law, and grand-girls safely arrived around dinner time lat night. It was first time the grand-girls had been to the beach so they were excited!!!

We ate dinner at Iguana's and then walked down to the beach before darkness settled in. The grand-girls absolutely loved the water and a little wet :)

re: Georgia State game - it was a real game, the first of the season.

Off to start the day.

Have a great day all!

Good morning and happy start-of-the-holiday-weekend to y'all.......

I had a hellish headache when I went to bed around midnight, and even Tylenol didn't work. Don offered me one of his pain pills, and I wanted sleep so badly, stupid me took him up on the offer (but only 1/2 of a tablet).

Well, I slept rather soundly, but about twenty minutes ago I became aware of what I was dreaming. Or maybe it was a hallucination. Most of you who have known me a long time know that I have some fairly liberal ideas, or at least I did BEFORE the Obama/Pelosi/Reid dog and pony show. I became aware I was dreaming about being a crew leader for some precinct walkers for the conservative candidate for State Assembly for my district, which is an open seat at this time.

In my dream, most of my crew were either disaffected Democrats or flat out hardline Tea Partiers. I was handing out scripts and street assingments to the rest of the the crew members, and all of a sudden, the Dems took exception to something in the script so the precinct walking chairperson and I reworded their scripts just a tad. That made the Tea Partiers mad, so we told them that they could stick to the original script, which angered the Dems. all of a sudden, the precinct chair started arguing with me about it being my fault, and I hauled off and smacked him one (the real person is about 6'5 and about 200 lbs). This made the CANDIDATE mad, so he started to pummel me! As I woke up, I realized that Don was tossing and turning in his sleep and that it was Boop that hit me as he was flailing his arms.

Weird dream, weird pain killer. I think it will be safer for me to stick to the Tylenol, even though it takes longer, and to sleep in the recliner or on the couch until Don ie either over his pneumonia or his surgery pain has subsided enough that he doesn't toss and turn so much.

Good morning all!

Just woke up to some thunder and raindrops on the roof a half hour ago! No lightening to speak of. No wind either, just a nice rainfall. The Acu-Rite says 0.14" so far, might end up with .25" after this current storm goes through. The grass and gardens can sure use it.

joelimo, maybe you could put together a squad of old, fat, mean-ass ex-Army dudes looking for some action, and go have a talk with that pin-headed, p3ck3r-w00d that gave you that last cancellation notice and settle this once and for all! I'd be more than happy to fly out your way, asap!

Hope the current plan works out for ya!

68° temp, 69° dew point, 100% humidity with little to no breeze!

Have a great Friday everyone! Later

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.

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"

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............
