M,

(maybe I'll just call you M. Sounds very James Bondish)
Glad you found something you like. I like a lot of different types of music so I try to vary it.

Rains are beginning to fire up locally.

Good Morning!

While am am truly flattered, I have level with you guys.
I can understand how RTLSNK might want to be I.
I also get how Pottery might occasionally wish he was me.
But really guys, while it might seem all glamorous and exciting, it's not all it's cracked up to be.
Only I can be me!
:o)

Just be yourselves.
We all like you that way!

Hope you are all having a good day!

Good Morning Arkers, yes, it is I, RangerSpongeBobRick, that is a very long name to type at 0600 hours in the morning. How do I know that it is 0600 hours you ask, because I just heard the alarm clock go off on the nightstand next to SugarBears side of the bed that she set to wake us up on Monday so we could make it to the Dr's office on time for the "Procudure" as they call it. It is a fairly new electronic alarm thingie that SugarBear has managed to learn how to set, but unfortunatly has not yet learned how to shut off. This is the 4th morning in a row that the crazy loud thing has gone off. I am usually at the computer on the opposite side of the house at 0600 so it is not as iritating to me as it is to her. It would be easy for me to throw the silly thing in the garbage can I know, but she still thinks she can figure the thing out. Will keep you posted as to how she is doing as the days progress.:)

Now, where was I, oh yes, RangerSpongeBobRick. I think that even though some of you think that this new nickname is cute for some reason, I find it to be too long to have to type out on my first cup or two of coffee so in the future I will simply say: Good Morning, it is I. Hmmm, I just realized that RangerSpongeBobRick has 19 letters and Good Morning, it is I has 21 letters and spaces. Hmmm, perhaps I should just say: It is I. 5 letters, two spaces, and a . Much better, you will just have to add the Good Morning in there for yourselves.

Now, where was I, oh yes, todays medical report.
I'm fine.

heh heh heh

Sounds so !

GoodMorning to you.
It's me.

Do you realize, my friend, how hard one has to focus to get that rain to move north? Well, let me tell you...pretty hard.
Then it started blowing up pretty good so I was afraid of overdoing it again so I backed off. Guess I'll have to perform a ceremony, but don't get mad if you get a deluge this week!

Bring it on. We are Prepared !

Sleep well Capt.
Don't let all those jangly chimes keep you up tonight.

Meanwhile, no major rain event overhead, but close enough that it's blowin' a gale.

Now, here's the thing. One of the grocery stores had, of all things, wind chimes. Well, I guess most folks don't go to the grocer looking for wind chimes so they marked them down to half price. Angie bought 2. One for her and one for a gift.

The next week they cut the price in half again and, you guessed it, she bought 2 more.

So, we already 1 set of wind chimes on the back deck, but they were small diameter and not very loud. Now, there are 4 sets. 3 of which are much larger and don't make a lot of racket.

Except when it's blowin' a gale!

Pretty things with copper dragonflies and such, but...well, kinda takes away from the whole peaceful watching the sunset thing!

What a racket!
Oh, well...the storms will pass.

So far, nothing!

Going to join The Lady on the deck.

Shep is gonna get rained on this am.

Just a light drizzle mid morning and again after lunch.
Makes the coffee taste better when the air gets heavy and a cool breeze blows....and nothing hurts :)
I worked right through it under a canopy.



Also, a mega-dose of a kick-start drug applied to the left upper buttock....


Good to the last drop.

Hey Pottery!
Funny how they tell you to keep your foot elevated, which generally means sitting or laying on your back then they go and stick a needle in your sitting region! Sometimes I don't think they think these things through!

Look to the south...the continent. You should get some convection blowing up your way...I think.

Yah!
It keeps threatening......
Member Since: October 24, 2005 Posts: 0 Comments: 24084
Dear Snakeymon,
I am reading with much foreboding and alarm about your ooozments.
It is all very well to have these Medicine Men (who you call Dr. Frankincense or something) probing about with X-Acto knives and Butterfly wings, but I think it's time for you to take matters into your own hands....

Allow Igor to accompany you to the next visit.
Allow him to sit in on the Consultation (on the Docs shoulder would be a good place)
Suggest to the Doc that this will either be your last visit, or Igor's first of two.

I think he will get The Message.

Yrs Truly,

Elmer Fudd,

Well, just to stay On Topic...

My visit to the local Medicine Man was quite as I had anticipated.
No X-Ray was needed although he is sure that I have damaged something in the toe region.
Keep it up, and rest it.

But definitely a case of Gout, in the same area (probably encouraged to flare up due to the thump it got), so Drugs have been purchased.
Also, a mega-dose of a kick-start drug applied to the left upper buttock....

When Lady Pott was bringing Son up-to-date with my Medical Condition, he says "Wow. Tell him relax a bit. He is our Dad. He has to stick around until he dies..." which made her laugh but which made me feel rather uncomfortable in a way.

Overcast, humid, no rain...

Shep is gonna get rained on this am.
I'm gonna get more unless that dry air from the Atlantic keeps pushing this way. Pottery might even get a sprinkle or two.

Nice tune.

Yeah, Poor RTLSNK don't do nothin' the easy way.
I have issues with pollen allergies but the worst that happens is a stuffy head, itchy eyes, and a headache. RTL has a lot of issues with meds. That ain't good.

Then I'm thinking, 22 incisions? You'd think if they were gonna do that much cutting, they'd just make one long slice and pull the vein out.

Then again, I fortunately have very little knowledge of such things. Just sayin'..."Owww!"

Morning Arkers!

Where was I? Oh yes, I remember now, I was here yesterday, or was it the day before yesterday. I am not sure what day is today and therefore I am not sure that I am remembering correctly. Hmmm, one must know where one is before one can figure out where one has been. I was myself before I started this conversation but I seem to have reverted to one something. Hmmm, I don't seem to be getting anywhere fast with this conversation. I shall ponder this problem for a little while and get back to you. :)

Fear not, the following information is to let you all know that I am still alive and well, however, there seem to be more side effects with this procedure than was found in the small information packet that came with a note saying that all of the possible side effects may not be experienced by every patient.

The Dr. discovered yesterday when he unwrapped the four layers of bandages that he had covered my leg with that it appears that my leg had swollen quite impressively Monday night which caused some if not all of the 22 incisions he had placed on the leg to stretch and open and copiously bleed all night long. I still had plenty of the red stuff left because I did drive myself to his office yesterday for the unwrapping.

He did have to re-seal the leaky little crevices with many more butterfly bandages and re-wrap the entire leg and I have to go back today to check on the re-wrap today at 1000 hours.

Meanwhile I seem to be having an alergic reaction to the blood thinner he gave me yesterday so I am just having a really fun time with this latest adventure into medical procedures of the third kind. :)

Will report later on his reaction to what my face looks like this morning with a lower lip that is four times its normal size.

Can you say Ubangi? Ubetcha! LOL


Damn.

You know, I've been reading about some of you guys and your adventures in modern medicine for a while now. Combined with some stuff I've noticed in the off-line world, it kind of leads me to believe that the cure is often worse than the disease.

Pottery,
Have you noticed that when you have a sore toe, that hard objects jump out of nowhere and bump it without the least provocation?

YES !
As children we were told "you have a blind toe. Tie a string around it and that will make it see again". Worked every time.

NOW though, there is an Issue with a large bombastic dog called Dingolay.
She cannot stop stepping on it....
And the more I remonstrate with her, the more she tries to prove how much she loves me.

It will be fun, walking into his office barefoot, as I can't get a shoe on.
But I will 'take in front' and say "I know. I Know! Snake already quarrelled with me....", and let him figure it out as he writes his Invoice.
