docputer,

As much as I like joelimo, I grew up in the age of the TV Davy Crockett, and you did do him wrong.

I still love both of you, though.

Hey! Hey! Hey!

Sir Joseph is now a Tennesseean!

Going like a house afire since who knows when
Spent his youth in a Big Apple tree
Started plinking coyotes when he was only three.
Joseph, Joe the Limo --- King of all Tennessee!"

Got that guest house ready, Joe?

LOL LOL LOL, etc.

Happy Tuesday! 72 degrees this morning.

It's back to work today but not before picking up the cats (the boys) and bringing them home after their "vacation" and going to my first physical therapy session. I should be in the office late morning.

Yesterday's meeting with the volleyball coaching staff went well. First home match is tomorrow night.

I have rehearsal this evening.

Off to breakfast and start the day.

Have a great day all!

No rain overnight. It looks like we're actually going to be able to go for a nice (dry) walk at sun-up! Too bad it's back to work for most...

You're at your destination already joelimo? Good job!

We got back in time for lots of yard work. It helped that the weathercritters were wrong again. I wonder how many resorts are harmed by these errant forecasts?

Joe, it's great to know you are there and maybe getting some well-deserved rest!

Been sorta discombobulated today...distracted even....but it worked out well. At least now I can quit thinking about getting this second book of poetry published, because it is DONE and over with.

Now...will anybody buy it:

"Tell Me the Things That Make You Cry"

Good night, all....God bless!

I THINK I've got a new daughter-in-law. No wedding, they are "DOMESTIC PARTNERS" which I think means common law. I don't know what all the legalities involved are but he lives and works here with me and she lives and works near Los Angeles with her two kids--both adult age. Has something to do with his medical plan. Anyhow, we'll see how this one works out.

Happy Monday and Labor Day! 75 degrees this morning.

We safely arrived back home about 3:30 pm yesterday afternoon, unpacked the car and freshened up.

I slept in a little this morning after a late night at the Braves' game followed by the Newsboys' concert. The Braves won, and the Newsboys were awesome!!

I have a meeting at noon with the new Georgia State Volleyball coaching staff, but other than that it will be a light day.

Off to breakfast and to finish my coffee.

Have a great day all!

I guess we're in no hurry to get home, since my soonest chance of a lawn dry enough to mow will be this afternoon sometime. Of course, I want to get ahead of the traffic, but so does everyone else.

Looks like no walk this morning. Rain! Acu-Rite rain gauge says 0.74" since 00:00. Maybe later this afternoon when they predict the sun will pop out.

For now it'll just be the situps! Lots and lots of situps!

Have a safe trip joelimo! Later

Howdy, all. Sitting here waiting for the blackeyed peas to finish cooking. Won't be long now. I've already had a sample, but I like 'em cooked SOOOOFFFFTT, so I'll wait a little longer....probably 'til suppertime, since I've already shot up with insulin and just have to have something soon.

Joelimo, God bless and God speed. I'm so glad you're going to get down to TN and see your Lovey, et al.

Geezer, when you gon' head South? You'd be right at home in Tennessee....they got more Yankees there now than PEOPLE!

LOL LOL LOL, etc.

...and they don't shoot at 'em too often!

LOL LOL LOL, etc., etc.

Thanks, JF. Even if it's a single greenback, it'll help. I sure wanted Tess to keep that BIG stone, but it was sent to a lab for analysis, and I'm SURE they'll put it on display somewhere OR sell it on eBay. The dang thing was almost as big as a baseball and shaped like one of the wheels off Fred Flintstone's CAR. Never EVER saw anything like that...and I really believe it would be valuable.

Wellum, I gotta get some chow...later....

We leave from Savannah in a few hours after a wonderful night on River Street at the Irish Pub and some Guiness.

We'll do some walking to some squares and then leave for home. Tonight we have the Braves game with our daughter who left SSI yesterday morning for an event she had to work last night.

Off to start the day.

Morning again all!

Doc, I'll check out your Tess' K9 Rescue site and see what I can do. I certainly understand what effect a stone or two, or even three (as is what my Ms Casey had removed from her bladder) can do to our loved ones.

I also spent some time checking out your Popsicle Dreams page. Impressive!
I like! Looking forward to your final piece of work...

Later

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.

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.
