I am here to ask y'all for some help if you can swing it. I have a good friend from high school named Louise who has suffered from a brain tumor and the craniotomy did not get the whole tumor. She is experiencing all sorts of physical, mental, and financial trauma. Her brother Steve has set up a gofundme page asking for donations. You can read the whole story there.

If you can make a small donation, even if it's just a dollar, it would be greatly appreciated. If you can share the page on any other social media site you belong to, it will help. Here is the link to her page:

Please help Louise

Her brother Steve is a Viet Nam combat vet, and her other brother Dave lost his son in Iraq a few years back.

Bob Seger and the Silver Bullet Band were going to move to Kathmandu, forget that I'm moving to Timbuktu, in Mali, and I'm flying in with Air Algerie on a MD-83.

Gotta go and pay bills, later.

Good morning.

Thanks, FOF. I've done that in the past, but now I use the same thing in generic form, which is much cheaper. (I'm part Scottish, you know. lol) Things in that area are MUCH better, but now this tooth that needs to go is KILLING me! I called the dentist who tried to convince me of that a few days ago, but now he's out of town, so it'll be Monday before I can get some relief from that.

When it rains, it's a downpour! Hopefully I've got some of that numbing junk here in one of my drawers.

The GOOD news is that the old HP laptop I was tentatively changing out the motherboard in is just about done. Man, was I getting LOST! When all else fails, though, including the ((*&^&**^&* "service manual," I go to YouTube.com --- where I found a "quick video" done by some little HOTshot nerd that demos exactly where all the screws go, etc. After following him along --- with pauses along the way --- I have the thing more than half done now, so pretty soon it'll be as good as new --- only it's an OLD model.

Neat thing is these things last a lifetime, generally, and they're as touch as the aircraft "black boxes." I've given 'em to most of my grandkids and half my friends...and even sold one. Got one going up on eBay today, as a matter of fact, so I hope some of you will at least check it out and pass the word.

MAN, I'm sleepy! Couldn't sleep well because of the dang tooth, so pretty soon now, I may take some dope and hit the sack again. Then again, I might mow a bit more of my Everglades grass before I do that. Did a little of it last night. Felt good to get out and move, and the back yard is more than half done now.

Later...y'all have fun.

doc if you want some relief I know this sounds funny but get yourself some monostate the sort of cream lady's use for yeast infections, add a few drops of white vinegar and rub it over the infected area, you should get some real relief from that.

Morning everyone!

Beautiful morning for a walk. The RunKeeper app on my iPhone says 2.38 miles. Sure didn't feel like it.

Going for a bike ride after my corn flakes and banana. Will usually ride 20 some miles, but we'll see.

The scanner sure is lively this morning! One call after the other. Slow down folks! Tickets are terribly expensive these days, let alone the resulting premium adjustments! Ask my s-i-l! HA!

Have a great day everyone! Later

Sir Joe, once that cold front goes through you'll have some nice dry cool Canadian air, of course compliments from cheap mom.

lol and so forth.

Doc, I was born at Providence Hospital in Detroit. My dad refused to have me circumcised and I've had yeast infections due to blood sugar fluctuations with type II diabetes. As a matter of fact, not one male on my mother's side of the family and my father's side of the family were circumcised. My mother's father, great uncles, that were all born in Finland, everyone climbing up the genealogical tree were in the same boat.

Non Jewish too...

Ask the Nagger, she'll tell ya!... She's one complaining bitch. (61) years old and she's never been married.

Brains, good looks with big knockers aren't everything.

lol and so forth.

Good late afternoon. Nothing going on, just don't feel all that great and have a few things going on. Seems I managed to get a super-grade yeast infection from all that Cipro I had to take. From now on I'll just guzzle cranberry juice and suffer through it. You got ANY idea how uncomfortable a yeast infection is for a "non-Jewish Southern boy" descended from old-fashioned parents? (If you know what I mean, of course!) Oh, lord! Sure hate to do it, because I'm STILL bashful at 80, but if I don't have any relief by tomorrow, I just might have to go over and show my "junk" to Doc Jennings.

JR,,,we had a Slightly different way of goin fast,,,
I lived in Brooklyn in Sheepshead Bay when they built the Verrazano–Narrows Bridge on Shore parkway and the road deck from the center to the bottom of it is about two miles long with a Perty good drop to it,,,
it'd take about an hour to get to the line between Brooklyn and Staten Island at the center and it'd take about a Minute to get back down to the bottom!
Providing your Bike was a Really Strong Road Bike,,,we kept Extra brake pads in our pockets cause on trip down and you not only had none left but usually you had No more bottoms on your Sneakers or Boots cause it was the only way to come to a Complete Stop at the Bottom!

Morning everyone!

We use to clip cards with laundry pins to the wheels of our bikes, also! We'd make these make-shift jumps and get going as fast as we could down the street and see who could make the longest jump, all the time without a helmet and such! The bike, those high handlebars and the banana seat I bought from my paper route! First job I ever had. Those were the days!

BayleeBuggy, as long as she's got her home covered, I see no reason why not. We've always taught her not to mess with karma! Haven't always followed that philosophy myself, but I do believe in karma...

Grandson is being dropped off again today. He loves sitting on grandpas lap on the rider and cutting grass. He even steers it now! Fun! I love it!

Oh, doc already knows, but the Good Lord is blessing my baby girl with another bundle of joy! She's due march 13th! Next week on the 29th she'll have her 'age' ultrasound.

Have a great day everyone! Later

I remember doing that with my Mother's bridge deck of cards. Only once.

That was back in 1967 driving towards Montreal for Expo 67.

In construction zones where you had to "merge" on 401 to the left or right, the signs said squeeze left or squeeze right!

It's a Canadian thingy...

What can I say, I have a lot of relatives in Ontario.

Good mornafterevening. Just been watching TV and checking out some stuff on the computer most of the day. Sure wish I had the gumption to straighten this disaster of an office up a little. Trouble is, others keep adding to my junk in here. A while back, The LuLu's "toe lady" dumped a couple of castoff computers here. I sold one on eBay, but the other is here in one of the piles. Then Son Layno dumped four big containers of baseball, football and whater cards here and asked me to sell 'em on eBay. I know NOTHING about sports cards junk, so it may never happen. I'm just not anxious to learn.

Anybody here know anything about baseball cards and such stuff?

Psyd, are you still working on the difference between "power" and "hydro"? I'll see if I can find a third-grader to explain it to you.

LOL LOL LOL, etc.

Junior, have you decided what to do if your daughter has to use the generator? Will she get a few guests to share the hydro?

Doc, you have made a lot of progress re weight, so another few pounds should be possible too.

Hey, Jeepers....glad you could stop by. Yep, it's been almost that long for me. STILL can't do much about the lard, though. Still, the 280 I'm at now is better than the 326 or so I hit right after I quit smoking. Sure would like to drop another fifty, anyway, but it's tough for a lot of reasons.
