Doc, I broke the golden rule of LDL cholesterol this morning...

West Virginia brand hickory smoked bacon, redskin potatoes cooked in the skillet with bacon grease, green onions and bacon bits. And to top it off, I had two eggs over easy cooked in bacon grease just like deer camp in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan with my great uncles...on my mothers side of the family..*drool*

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

Happy Sunday! 30 degrees this morning.

It wound up being a busy day for me yesterday, but a fun one. I had just arrived at rehearsal around 9:00 am yesterday morning when I received a call from the GSU Women's basketball SID who asked that I come in early to also call their game. I attended about 30 mins of the rehearsal, returned home to prepare my rosters and quickly depart for the women's game. Unfortunately, they lost as they were rather outclassed by both talent and play.

Immediately following the women's game, the men's game complete with a lot of pregame marketing reads and special presentations as it was alumni weekend and they also presented RJ Hunter a game ball from last Monday night when he tied the GSU men's scoring record in three short years at GSU. The men's team played well and got the win. RJ also broke the all-time scoring record.

Following the game, we went out to dinner to celebrate our grand-daughters' birthdays with their parents and our daughter and her boyfriend. Our grand-girls said it "was the best birthday ever!" We all had a great time!

Off to start the day.

Have a great day all!

Good morning everyone,

A light dusting overnight (1-4" was predicted.) Vini handled it well.

Good afternoon folks. Nice and balmy up here in the northern latitudes of Michigan, but we're forecasted for more cold air come Tuesday...

How about some Jimmy Dean.

'Morning.

Interesting night. We were all awakened just after midnight by at least half a dozen CLOSE gunshots. Dunno what went on, but one neighbor call the sheriff's office and they did come out, but never had lights or sirens on. Dunno what, if anything, they found. My prob is the fact there are some brand-spanking new residents down in the cul-de-sac, who --- using my profiling skills --- are more than likely UDVs (Undocument Democrat Voters).

Things change. When we bought this place thirty or so years ago, it was populated almost exclusively by retired folks. Now it seems to be becoming a Hispanic ghetto. I surely have no desire to leave here, but, at the same time, I surely don't like what's happening. Seems the whole country is going the same direction, though. The last time I was in my home neighborhood in Alabama, I was really saddened by what has happened there, with black gangs on almost every corner, glaring hate at any "whitey" who drove by.

Idunno...maybe it's just the Good Lord's way of saying it's time to go somewhere else...one way or another.

Happy Saturday! 42 degrees and light rain this morning. Up early (again) on a Saturday for another rehearsal followed by the GSU Men's basketball game. Rehearsal starts at 9:00 am and I have to depart for the game around noon.

Yesterday's commute wasn't too bad considering.

I picked up my truck last night; the engine will need to be replaced so it's time to look for another vehicle. The truck lasted almost 14 years so we certainly got our money's worth out of it. We'll likely look for a small SUV or crossover type (CUV?).

Off to start the day.

Have a great day all!

Bone, that's what it'd mean if it were where the wound is...but it's not....it's up the wrist from there, and it's just what always gets me....some sort of tape...ANY sort of tape!

Oh, well.....time for a nap. I'm gon' go dream that BayleeBug and Blo and I are castoffs on a desert island with nothing but 49 cases of Champagne, 600 ready-to-heat double cheeseburgers....and a quarter.

Can anybody guess what the quarter is for?

HEH! HEH! HEH!

Well Shiite Sunni, that itching means that you're healing..

A local news report said that San Antonio had six (6) snowflakes in your neighborhood?!?

Ahhh, that's pretty funny Doc.

We get about 9.8 gazillion snowflakes every night! That translates to 3.8 million snowflakes per square foot, which is variable depending on the atmospheric pressure and the percent humidity in the upper atmosphere.

Now if you believe in that one, you need to go back to Doc's School of Snowflakes.

lol

Doc - hoping the healing process goes quickly for you!

I have to go into the office for several meetings today so it's a no telework Friday for me. Here's hoping the commute is uneventful in spite of the rain.

Good morning everyone,

I probably should have scraped the driveway and deck last night, but it should be OK to do the deck this afternoon and the driveway then or tomorrow. 2-4" more expected Saturday night anyways.

Happy Thursday! 40 degrees this morning. In early this morning as I'm participating in an overseas call; mostly listening to my staff interact with the CDC-Vietnam country office so I can multi-task.

Doc - glad to hear your procedure went well; I hope you get some relief from the pain soon.

The party was a nice time.

Off to continue the day.

Dp 'n all- As Alfred Hitchcock used to say every week on national TV, "Good evening."

Wunnerful ride today with Chapter 852, American Legion, Temecula California, accompanying Adam Sandoval in his efforts to ride 68,000 miles in 12 months with his dog, Scooter"trash", visiting all 600+ Harley dealerships in 48 states while raising funds for the American Legion Scholorship Fund for children of military members killed in action in recent wars and actions.

So far he has visited 115 dealerships in 9 weeks, raising $18.000. All donations co to the charity as he has sacrificed to provide all his own funding.

I was my priviledge to escort Adam and Scooter over the mountain to his latest destination.

If you're interested in seeing more about the charity, www.facebook.com/ScootinAmerica is the place to visit.

Oh, well, so far my neighbor is still asleep and doesn't answer the phone, so Idunno if I'll get there or not.

Okay, I changed my mind:

I LIKE BEER!

Good night. I have to be at the surgery center at noon tomorrow for Dr. Drukker to take another stab at putting a stop to this blasted "ganglion cyst" that keeps on and on and ON erupting on my inner left wrist.

Manana...probably about late afternoon.

I haven't had any ale or beer in years, and the last time was home-made by some friends. That's not what turned me off, though -- theirs was good. I do like hard cider or perry (same thing but made from pears) -- similar to beer but milder tasting.

Doc, the situation I can't talk about has been resolved with no lasting problems, as long as the person involved avoids messing up again. So the SO is much happier than he was over the weekend, and I am too!
