Happy Thursday! 44 degrees this morning. 2.6 mile walk complete.

Dental and dermatology appointment went well. No issues at dentist and the normal freezing events for multiple places on my face, hands, arms and back. I return in 6 months for both.

We'll have dinner with our daughter in Atlanta tonight after work.

Off to another day of meetings and solving challenges.

Have a great day all!

Thankee, Bonester. Hope things are well with you, too. That reminds me, how soon will you be able to retire from that wonderful, enjoyable job of yours? The way you're talking lately, I hope it's soon. I know what being miserable on a job is like. After I just flat became too white and too English-speaking, I got really REALLY down about that job I'd loved so much for so many years. Some things you just can't live with.

ANYway, I'm finally hitting the sack. Good night to all.

Howdy.

Been really going today. Had to take The LuLu to her pain meds doctor....and wait. Then we came back by HEB to get flu shots...and waited. I don't like waiting anymore than I did when I was a professional.

LOL LOL LOL, etc.

Seemed by the time we got home, I might feel better if I HAD the stinking flu!

'S'nuffa' THAT!

Then I found the new screen for Chasm's laptop sitting in its box on the porch, so I had to rush right in and get it in.....and NOTHING! Still had to go to the external monitor. THEN I noticed the "ghosts" on the new screen, so now I know --- it wasn't JUST a bad screen.....the **^$X%&9 inverter HAS to be bad, too. So I PRIED it out --- because it had fried itself to the casing --- got the numbers off of it and ordered a new one. Now I have to wait ANOTHER four days for THAT to arrive! Crappola!

Oh, well, if all works out, his spoose will have a laptop that still looks like a new one and still works like a new one. That's a good thing.

MEANtime, I've bought a real SWEETIE off eBay that has a cracked screen, but nothing else at ALL wrong with it, so I'll have some fun with that while waiting for the new inverter.

Life is good when there's interesting stuff to do! Sure would be better with a couple of the "things I miss the most," but such is life....

Gotta get some stuff done here so I don't fall behind on points. Later...or earlier, y'all!

Had a chocolate chip cookie today from Albertons--a market w/bakery. Wasn't anywhere near as good as McDonald's cc cookies.

Put sweater on Koko last night and she almost threw a fit. No sweater for her. Perhaps it is too early but the morning temps are getting down into the 50snd she looks cold. Oh well, try again when they drop into the 40s.

Good to hear Boop is coming along all right. Maybe it's the inhalers that put the animals off. They produce a small animals don't like and we cannot detect them.

Greetings Doc, Baylee, Mindy, PayPump, Mick, WRINC, Joelimo, Geezer, Wack, MadDogUSMC, Loree71, Full of Fun, Chasms, blkvette00, Psycho Sid, & Others:

Happy Wednesday! 54 degrees this morning.

I have two medical appointments this morning, my semi-annual dental and the scrape, freeze, cut (aka dermatologist) visits. Accordingly I will attend those and work from home around them this morning then it's off to the office for a transition meeting for my new government employee hire who starts on Monday. I will be out of the country so I need to ensure he has some of the "bubble" so he can be somewhat productive next week.

My wife's appointment went pretty well yesterday, although they have determined she pinched a nerve in her back so she'll have to see the orthopedist to see what's going on there. She thought it was a sciatic nerve issue; thankfully that doesn't appear to be the case.

Traffic going in mid-morning was much more tolerably than the normal rush hour though.

Off to start the day.

Have a great day all!

Good evening!

Doc, how about some home surgery? If it's that close to the surface, I might be tempted.

Sid, I'm sorry to hear about your friend. Sounds like you shared some pretty intense times.

Loree, good news about the boopster. Most of our beasts cuddle with me, because I'm more accommodating. I think that just means I'm more of a sucker.

Howdy.

Made up for lost sacktime today. Didn't have much luck last night, but today was a SNOOZER --- cloudy all day, sorta halfway coolish, quiet...nice!

Anyway, I'm UP an' ATTEM!

And so is the ganglion cyst Doc Drukker drained yesterday --- filling right back up again, almost to the original size in less than 24 hours.

Oh, well....that's enough of that....I'll just keep what I have. At least there's not even a chance of its being dangerous.

Yep, WR-INC, I like 'em so well I've bought five of them. So far, every time I've got one jazzed up just the way I like it, somebody else needs it worse than I do. Now I'm down to the last one. Oh...and so far, I haven't had to make good on the "Lifetime Guarantee."

LOL LOL LOL, etc.

(Remember? We're talking about MY lifetime....so you may be covered for the next twenty years or for the next twenty MINUTES! That's actually known as an "Adjustable Term Warranty," administered by the Father Time Warranty Assn.)

LOL LOL LOL, etc., etc.

Got an interesting one going now. Chasms sent me his wife's laptop --- complete with a non-functioning LCD screen and a "Windows User Password" that neither of them has any idea about....NObody knows what it is or WAS.

Fun, huh? I'll have a replacement screen in by Friday, and if things work out right, I'll have the user name bypassed and reset by then...something new for me, so another learning experience.

LESSON TO LEARN: DON'T PUT A STINKING PASSWORD ON YOUR COMPUTER WITHOUT AT LEAST MAKING SOME ATTEMPT TO REMEMBER THE THING....AND EVEN THEN, WRITE IT DOWN!

Even better: Since you don't live in a high-crime household, DON'T PASSWORD THE DAMNED THING TO START WITH!

I've actually got a really nice laptop over in the corner in a couple of boxes that has a "BIOS LOCK" on it that some moron put in years ago. I THINK I've figured out how to defeat that, but I'm really afraid my soldering skills might not be sufficient, so I'm hoping Layno comes back home sometime soon so he can take a shot at it.

Oh, well...ain't life fun?

Our cats mostly stay on my wife's lap, but occasionally will venture to mine. Vini can only lay next to me on the couch, because he can't fit on her recliner. Plus I share treats with him. She won't.

Encouraging news for Don at the pulmonolgist yesterday. No cancer, no evidence of any additional scarring in the lung tissue. He did, however, get a THIRD inhaler sample to try, so now he will be hitting one twice a day, one once a day, and one as needed. If Don likes the new one, the doc will call in an RX for it on a permanent basis.

Boop is pouty this AM because he went to bed early, and I stayed up to watch TV, then fell asleep in the recliner. What he's pouty about is that all four of the critters wound up sleeping in the recliner with me, and not one of them bothered to come visit him! He said he even picked up Chuy and took him back to bed with him, but five minutes later Chuy was back with me!

Hope y'all have a great day today. I will be working on VFW holiday stuff this morning for veterans, and spending the afternoon working on the Christmas Party for our adopted Army Reserve unit.

Not to upset anyone, but I'm leaving the farm here in Saginaw County and going to a funeral for a brother of mine who passed.

We were brothers --- the two of us made rhetoric in the Eastern District Federal Court in the Eastern District of Michigan to back up wrongful charges against our motorcycle club from the US Secret Service.

I'll explain the whole story to Doc about how the standoff almost came to a full firefight, with multiple deaths in a shootout when the US Secret Service, who were trespassing on private property at our clubhouse in Detroit.

With no warrants for anyone in the club, they were looking for counterfeit money.

It was ugly, that's all I have to say about the US Feds.

That story would have made the CNN National News.

Good morning everyone,

docputer,

I see why you might want one of these notebooks for yourself. The screen is about an inch smaller than my old one, but it's sharper and brighter. Also, it's overall faster.

Good morning.

Have to get myself in gear to go see Doc Drukker at 1:00 PM. The dear boy will probably drain this conFOUNDed ganglion cyst on my left wrist again, as it's back again rather prominently. I'm letting him know, though, that if it doesn't do any good this time, I'm just going to keep the thing, since it really doesn't bother me much, anyway....just irritating to have what looks like a marble stuck under the skin there.

Oh, well...could be worse.

Y'all try to keep busy now, and I'll talk with you when I get back.

'Morning.

Grmoore, what you need is a part-time job to relieve the stress of all that extra time you have on your hands. I'm looking for one, myself, right now, but none seem to be available that meet my essential criteria....working from twelve to one, with an hour off for lunch.

Oh, well.....

Guess that means you got nothing done 'puterwise, huh, WR-INC?

MadDog, my thyroid's been gone since '94, and things haven't been right since seven or eight years before THAT. Seems to me if you have thyroid trouble, there are just some things the medicos do NOT know! I'm FINALLY up to 224mcg of thyroxine, but I'm still not "normal" --- in more ways than one.

LOL LOL LOL, etc.

Oh, well, down a pound yesterday, up a pound today. Hot-diggety, huh?

POOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!

Baylee - yeah, I heard about that one. Crazy~!

MadDog - safe travels.

Really tough day at the office for the Panthers yesterday afternoon. While the offense looked spectacular at times - amassing 31 points and over 400 yds in total offense - the defense looked quite porous and couldn't stop the run inside or outside. Accordingly, the score 69-31 tells the story.

Off to start the day.

Cleared the leaves yesterday, but with the trees only half dropped it's not the end of that chore. Then went to my MIL's to move boxes and furniture in the basement so it can be recarpeted and resheetrocked due to the sewer backup. Then we went out to dinner to celebrate my MIL's 87th birthday.

Oh, BOY! Just had a deelicious low-carb supper of Baked WondeRoast Steelhead Trout, Stuffed Jalapenos, and fried spinach/scrambled egg. I'm so low on carbs today I should lose ten pounds.....but I'll probably GAIN!

Nice thing is my sugar has been right at or below 100 all day long....amazing for me....and that's with half of my normal quota of insulin. Last time I went through this it was at about this point that I decided I could lose all this lard on my own, so I backed out of the surgery. Won't happen again. I hate being fat worse than I hate to think about surgery.

....and I really DO want to jump out of a "perfectly good airplane."

LOL LOL LOL, etc.

....and I really DO want to go ice fishing.

....and I really DO want to go to Tennessee and visit Brother Jerry and meet Jo-Jo the Limo Man!

....and I'd just love to meet ALL of you, too. MAYbe I can get to Wisconsin to visit my old AF buddy in Durand, and if that happens, MAYbe I can then head on over to Minnie Sore Toe and visit a few folks there, too.

Who knowS? If I can dump fifty pounds, MAYBE!

Then again, as some might say, maybe pigs will fly!

If they do, I'm going to buy a flock of 'em and send 'em to doo-doo-bomb ISIS!

LOL LOL LOL, and so forth and fifth.

Later, y'all.

On our way shortly to see a production of "La Bamba" at the California Theater of Performing Arts in San Bernardino, with a stop for dinner first. The theater was built in the 1920s and was the last place Will Rogers appeared before he died in the plane crash with Wiley Post.

It's a beautiful venue, with great acoustics. We saw Canned Heat there when they opened for The Fabulous Thunderbirds about two years ago. Kinda sad that CH was not the second act, since they were so much better.

Good morning! Well, except for a batch of computer problems. My adobe flash player has kept quitting a lot lately, and I've just downloaded what it said to do, and it now says Blocked Plug-in. I may have to take it to an Apple place, which will be packed on the weekend, of course.

grm, there was another strange event in Quebec this week, two days before the Wed. horrors. Yet another madman, also a convert to you-know-which religion, deliberately ran his car into two soldiers, and killed one of them. He himself was shot by cops as a result. But maybe that helped to inspire Wednesday's whacko.

Greetings Doc, Baylee, Mindy, PayPump, Mick, WRINC, Joelimo, Geezer, Wack, MadDogUSMC, Loree71, Full of Fun, Chasms, blkvette00, Psycho Sid, & Others:

Happy Saturday! 46 degrees this morning.

Baylee - yeah; crazy, crazy times in this here world.... Someone was nutso out west and who knows where next?

The Georgia State volleyball got their third home win in a row last night beating the University of Louisiana at Lafayette 3 sets to 1. It was another electric crowd and the team continues to gel making it a fun experience for all.

The Georgia State basketball season kicks off with its first exhibition game on Nov 3d. I will miss this game as I'm traveling internationally. This will be only game I'm projected to miss, so if I have to miss one an exhibition game is the one. The team will make it really exciting this year.

Today, in a few hours actually, I will depart for the Georgia Dome to call the Georgia State vs. Georgia Southern football game. Our son was interviewed by the Georgia State beat writer and made the first page of the Atlanta Journal Constitution paper (print edition). Here's a link to the on-line edition (same article/interview just in a different place) - Ben's AJC Quote. Here's hoping it's a competitive game.

Off to start the day.

Have a great day all!

Good morning everyone,

The lawn doesn't need cutting, but running the mower helps mulch the leaves, so I might have to do the back yard.

Hey, BayleeBug.

Good night, all. The LuLu's having "panic attacks," so I have to go to bed early or she can't sleep.

Nice to be needed, but I don't like this "panic" stuff.

ANYway, God bless us every one!

Good evening!

Blo and grm, yes it was a very strange day. As it turned out it was only one whacko (apologies to anyone here sharing that name!) but it took hours to be sure of that. There were reports of more shots fired in a nearby shopping place, and then later that was changed. So the whole sequence of events took only about 10 minutes, but the rest of the day to check everything out.

We have friends and relations in Ottawa too, so I'm doubly glad that the maniac was stopped when he was.

Well, Blo, I knew lots of the stuff floating around the internet is nutso right-wing garbage, but that speech pretty much puts things in perspective as far as I'm concerned: What the man actually said is true: Black parents...among others...are too busy with "self" to take care of the business of decency and responsibility. Now I'll get off it, because EVERY time I've said anything at all about black folks I've either been called a "hater" or a "racist" or at the very least "corrected."

....so let's talk about floopers....I do like dem FLOOPERS:

<<<FLOOP! FLOOP! FLOOP!..............>>>

YOWzuh!

LOL LOL LOL, etc.

Hmmmmmm....I'm so dang full of turkey and salad my goozle is throbbing and I'm afraid I'm gone GOBBLE just any minute.

Later, y'all.
