I think he got it. !!!!! He was thinking of someone else, however.

If he did I offer up > H O M I C I D E < as a true possibility..... Actually I am spraying around the front windows as the cockroaches are on death row now from crawling up the wall and rattling the blinds getting inside. They do it every year and I cannot for the life of me figure out how those big things get through nothing I can see as a large enough space and why? No food in my office just me. They come a long way to get to the windows and doors. I get the doors as they need new weatherstripping but the windows elude me.

It appears I am caught off guard as it were. My brains are a little sluggish these days but I think that the pneumonia I had all last summer so I was in hospital has a lot to do with it.

S L U G G I S H

Hope critic gets here soonish as we have lots of words - ish..

P.S. nice to "see" you, CP. My cousin Ralph died year before last at 97 years old but he didn't remember anything of his life much less his last 22 years. Alzheimer's is constant in my Mom's family and not a problem in my Dad's. Genetically I constantly pray for Dad's genes to help me through.

Thanks for the comment, Sody. Been keeping warm in south Texas for the winter. However, relocated to Phoenix area this week. Am a full time caregiver for my wife who has total memory loss. Doesn't know we've been married almost 61 years.

Might as well try some other letters:

Well the vet held off on a possible operation for now. Wants to watch the back in case it is a ruptured disc. I have several of those and they really do hurt a lot. We are on meds for her for a month, then a recheck.

I keep thinking of sixteen wheelers, popping wheelies which the local motorcycle suiciders like to try, and so forth. None are in the right places. Also fishing reels and the like. Supposed to warm up tomorrow which will make my brain perk better.

ND, you are really fooling me as well. I am tired tonight and at 8 am our Cavalier goes in for a "knee" job on the second rear leg. Left side. Funny as my latest knee was the left and Sody's hip was the left. WE are all victims of the left side scourge. She will do well. She is so very sweet and sensible. She understands, more than other dogs we have had, what is going on. Very good dog.

Gee that was me not my other half! He is home from the hospital and walking about like he never had a bad hip. That replacement hip must be fabulous. So I asked him why he was so difficult about getting it fixed. Mumbled about cost and surgery and possibilities of not making it through.. Nuts to that. Doctors are getting better and better and so are the replacements for the shot joints.

Now that Sody is back and you are running this game I shall toss my 8's at you, ND.

note to you all - al the nurses at the hospital love me - because my wife was there and was nice to them. She sure had a lot of different nurses and each one so far has run into the room and hugged her half to death. Also the orderlies from the kitchen remember her, one was talking French with her and I am back up and should get out of here soon so get those guesses in for me. She wants to take her iMac home now.

This is by JM since Sody is in the hospital. When he got out of bed Thursday morning he squealed and said get the walker. So I did. He had thrown out his hip just by doing that. I took him to emergency, had my student, who is an orthopedics man look in on him and the upshot was that Craig (my prior student) had an associate who is an expert on hips. Dr. King is his name. So they kept him in hospital all night and Dr. King took out his old hip which had slid to a space behind where it belonged (I knew that turkey who worked on him last time in emergency was a total jerk!) causing him enormous pain. He operated on Sody today and Dr. King spent quite some time on the phone at noonish explaining what he did. Sounds great and is a new way to do it. So our dog, Bodacious Babe, decided to join Sody by throwing out her left knee a whole week before she was to get her replacement. I had her to the animal emergency hospital and she spent today at her regular vet. Our vet and I are going to try to get her through to April 4 when she is scheduled for surgery. Rather an expensive 36 hours so far! I shall run this game in the meantime for him. Sorry about that.
