Scott needs someone to hold it for him ! I looked at that pic of him and he is getting his throne all set up , i am thinking his recovery could last years...does he have a bell?

Oh....wait a minute ...a bell?
**** I forgot the damn bell..............? He will get a bell.......done!

The day after his surgery I will be a work and he will be all loopy by himself with Hoss...........so do not want him to fall or doing anything to upset this shoulder.......trying to avoid screwing this surgery up......that first six weeks is crucial to not use that right shoulder for NOTHING......absolutely nothing .......thus urinal !!!! Yup.......early christmas present .......cracked me up watching him use it during football yesterday...........funny funny man !

He can do nothing.......absolutely nothing with his RIGHT hand for 6 weeks........I suspect will have many more chores that I have not even thought of yet.......(by the way ....he is right handed) ........

Lets see also bought him:
Shower sling....
stool softeners .....30 day supply
Donjoy Rotator Cuff Sling.......big ticket item !! $119
Motrin.......lots of motrin.........

Leg surgery is much different than a shoulder surgery................not to mention at least you had use of your arms and hands.

Try to do anything and NOT engage your right shoulder............it's hard to do..........

So you Roo's quit trying to undermine my personal drama............or else!

LaDi, thanks for explanation, but be careful not to create a monster...


I can see it now, during week 6 of College & NFL weekends:


[sound of bell ringing rapidly] Scott: "Di would you mind getting a couple more brews and another bowl of big Cheetos, the Bucs finally made it to the Red Zone this game?"

[bell ringing rapidly again] "Oh....BTW Di, my piss pot needs emptying, again....haha....Sorry...."

LaDi: "Ring that bell again Scotty and I'm gonna' shove it where no one will be able to hear it !!!!"

And of course the zings to Saban - like Hey Nick Got a Second

When life gives you lemons, make lemonade... Sounds like the perfect opportunity to suggest to Scott a John Deere zTrak Zero Turn riding mower (with light kit)... like SP has, but isn't allowed to use...

SP will turn JD Green with envy when you post a video of yourself tooling around your lot driving that bad-boy piece of lawn care euipment!

I am in hopes others will do the same........find something that you are going to stop doing that has been on your "To Stop Doing List" for a long time..I know we all must have plenty of things to change ......but just pick one and be committed in the name or our coop mate ...............I think if we are serious enough with our problem and/or future goals...... that our brother will understand our intent is to walk by his side and fix some life long problems that reside within ourselves.......

OK......here it goes........I am going to stop biting my fingernails! There I said it...........discontinued 2 days ago........and I am doing pretty good so far.......caught myself a couple of times.........by stopped myself.
Seriously..........this can be quite hard to do when you have done something for so long....but it is stupied and gross to do this .........and I do hereby swear to my coop that ....I will and have stopped!!!! Bitting my fingernails.......

So who's next ? Don't be shy...........you don't even have to tell us what it is..........just announce your participation and be really really committed to your "secret change" ......committed like our friend is.......to his.......

This will be a good home coming present for him....... to see what all of us can do for ourselves ........in his name.......

So who's next .......anyone ?
Hang in there with those nails. It's a tough one to break because you can't just stop buying them the way you can with cigarettes or booze, or put them away in a drawer out of sight. They're always there waiting for you right at the ends of your arms. My counselor says that if you really stick with trying to get rid of a bad habit, the pressure will ease up in about 3 weeks and that you'll almost be through the worst of it. Also that it works best if you can find another non-destructive habit to put in place of the damaging one you're trying to squelch. Maybe a worry stone???

The only habit I can think of that I'd really like to break (one day) is my habit of wandering through the kitchen late at night and nibbling my way through something. It's clearly just some kind of habit, because I'm not even necessarily hungry. But you know, if you stay up til 2 or 3 o'clock like I usually do, it seems a long time since you ate dinner. Good excuse, anyway.

But I'm not ready to quit cold turkey just yet. I'm working on substituting something healthy instead of the junk I typically like to eat late in the day. It would be much easier not to have anything in the house that I shouldn't go after, but I have kids who like their snacks from time to time. Good excuse, anyway.

Excuses--do you detect a pattern here?

Funny story.

When I bought my black Z71 for $10K, damn sweet price, there were probably 80 plus hard back books in boxes under the bed cover. I had been moving them around with me for at least 3 moves. I finally decided I needed to get rid of a lot of things. I took my load to Half Price books thinking I was going to get some dough out of them, as they were mostly biographies. Nope! While they were pricing my load of books, I went looking around and found a box set of the HBO series Six Feet Under.

They gave me $8 for my books and I walked out the door with the Six Feet Under collection for $65.

I think White Gold Wielder was the last book (it's been a few decades since I last read them) in a series of six. If there was more after that, I never heard about it, so never read it.

I'm a book snob about needing paper and ink and THAT SMELL that a book has. I don't enjoy reading stuff on a lit computer screen or tapping buttons to turn pages (I'm thinking that's how those things work, but never used one). So when I have time, which isn't very often lately, I like to grab an actual book, and sit quietly, reading and turning pages and enjoying the book experience. But yeah, I'm old, so I'm excused from technology if I don't wanna! LOL!



Yeah, I know, I was supposed to have a crush on Davy, but all my giggling little girlfriends had crushes on Davy and I've always eschewed fads (oops, I used a big word, sorry!), so I went for the "road less traveled," so to speak. Besides, Davy was a midget, and even at 13, I'm sure I would have towered over him, LOL! I always wanted a boyfriend who was taller than I was, which made for pretty slim pickings until later on in high school when the boys had their growth spurts.



I'm not sure if I got to read all of his books, but I remember also reading The Red Stallion, The Island Stallion (and maybe a second Island Stallion?) and then I think there was one in there with the Black AND the Red stallions, but I don't remember. I read all those books in grade school, checked out from the library. I never bought copies as an adult, although I probably should have.

And now a couple of funny things for your morning enjoyment. For the past couple of months, we thought our propane heater had a broken fan, so we couldn't use it. Thus, the new space heaters I mentioned getting. But really, trying to heat this OLD house on the plains in a South Dakota winter with nothing but a couple of space heaters was a daunting thought. We have a perfectly good wood stove but we're no longer perfectly able to go out and cut and split wood for it, so we can't use it. Last winter we got by with the propane heater (it's like a little baby pretend woodstove that runs on propane) and one space heater in the living room, but the other end of the house, the bedroom, and the bathroom, are unheated. I was fully expecting the whole house to be that cold this winter.

Well, so anyway, we were plugging in one of the new space heaters to sit it in front of the defunct propane heater, when Rich said, "What's this cord for?" and pulled out a cord that was plugged into the wall, but the business end wasn't hooked to anything. You could see the lightbulbs going off over our heads, I'm sure. Grabbed a flashlight and looked on the back of the propane heater and sure enough, there's the hole that the other end of that cord is supposed to go into. Damblasted CATS! Of course, the very first thing I checked when I realized the fan wasn't working was IS IT PLUGGED IN? And yes, it was. My error was I ASSUMED it was hard-wired to the back of the heater. I never thought to see if the other end was connected. Jesus wept... So, Rich plugged the dang thing back into the stove, I turned on the thermostat, the flames kicked on, and a few minutes later the FAN blew wonderful warm air out the front of the thing. So. We won't be as cold as I thought this winter, which is good.

Another funny thing, I keep forgetting to tell you guys about, every morning when I first get up, the first thing I do is turn on the lights, then the next thing is I clean out the upstairs litter box. With 11 cats in the house now, this is something we do many, many times every day, and every single time our little "blind" kitty (he can see some now, but his eyes will always be a mess) hears me scratching around in the litter, he runs to the box and jumps in to pee. It doesn't matter that I'm not finished cleaning it out yet, I just have to get out of his way! LOL! Every time! If he's downstairs sleeping when I clean the box, he wakes up and runs up to pee while I'm cleaning, and if he's upstairs playing or sleeping, same thing. He just can't resist.

And on a sadder note, we lost that little baby Marshmallow that had the stuffy nose and wouldn't eat. I tried everything, but he just didn't have enough reserves to get him by more than a day or two of not eating and he finally died last night. Rich held him and comforted him on his way out, which was all we could do for him. The other kittens are still doing well, however, it's 14 degrees outside right now, so I hope they're all still OK this morning. When we got done feeding them and the moms last night, the kittens were all in a pile on an old chair cushion that we put in an overturned box. Of course, I wanted to bring them all in the house but there are six kittens out there and three of them are full-on wild, so I can't bring THEM in. We just have to hope for the best, and if some of them don't make it, I have to remember that Mother Nature can be cruel as well as kind, and accept it. (I just hate it when babies die, it rips my heart...)

At least it's not snowing at the moment. It fllurried all day yesterday, but right now it's mostly clear, which is why it's so cold. I'm so glad we got our hay when we did!

Let's read them together and annoy everyone here by talking about each chapter and how it made us feel.



We have to start with the first book, of course.



I've got mine read-ably available. You say when!

I sobbed that the series was ending. I was more pissed off. Maybe that is the reason I was sobbing. Noooo! They are not ending my show!

I wanted it to go on and on and on. I loved all the characters.

I even get pissed off when a good book ends and then throw the book across the room.

I hate goodbyes.

One of the saddest things in the world. One of your favorite authors dies and you've already read everything he wrote.

I am in hopes others will do the same........find something that you are going to stop doing that has been on your "To Stop Doing List" for a long time..I know we all must have plenty of things to change ......but just pick one and be committed in the name or our coop mate ...............I think if we are serious enough with our problem and/or future goals...... that our brother will understand our intent is to walk by his side and fix some life long problems that reside within ourselves.......

OK......here it goes........I am going to stop biting my fingernails! There I said it...........discontinued 2 days ago........and I am doing pretty good so far.......caught myself a couple of times.........by stopped myself.
Seriously..........this can be quite hard to do when you have done something for so long....but it is stupied and gross to do this .........and I do hereby swear to my coop that ....I will and have stopped!!!! Bitting my fingernails.......

So who's next ? Don't be shy...........you don't even have to tell us what it is..........just announce your participation and be really really committed to your "secret change" ......committed like our friend is.......to his.......

This will be a good home coming present for him....... to see what all of us can do for ourselves ........in his name.......

So who's next .......anyone ?
Umm. I got nothing.

I like drinking beer. John doesn't need to know that so I will stop talking about it? Not sure if I am drinking and typing how that can happen.

I have been thinking about going to church for a year or so now. I am Catholic, that might be easier. I can pick Wednesdays, Saturdays or Sundays to fulfill my commitment. That would be easier than quitting smoking.

Can I have my horse put down and get back to you on this?
