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?

Wait until the witchdoctor hears you are consulting with a Snake, a Shepherd, and a Hood who drives an Ark.

Prolly will send you next door to the shrink!

(edit: you can now add a Coyote to that list)

Fortunately, I've known him a long time.
He is seldom amazed by me, anymore.

Off to the showers, for me.
Thence to the deck to watch the Squiggly's go to bed.
While Lady Pott sips a glass of wine and I a glass of something less Spirituous.

I wonder what he's doing wading in the stuff to begin with and what kind of shoes he wears.

Reminds me of those guys on the Nat Geo channel walking around inside a volcano and then looking surprised that their shoes are smoldering!

All I know is bare feet doesn't stand up too well to molten aluminum!(Or aluminium, to Pottery!) :)

This is True !
But I have to ask....

"do you have some Experience in this matter"?

It sounds rather Dire.
Painful, too.

Well, yes, one does need to use a little common sense!
I'm not barefoot all the time!

Time for this front to pick a direction and move.
I'm growing weary of being soggy!

Actually, I have found that most injuries in life can be attributed to "pilot error"

Looking forward to seeing Pottery in his new "feather cap"! I just can't picture a vase full of feathers strapped to his head...

"...Mind the music and the step,
And with the girls be handy."

A Singular lack of Imagination.....
Or should that be a lack of Singular Imagination?

Whatever it is, I have today called the Medicine Man, and will go to have Offending Foot subjected to Radioactive impulses tomorrow.

Today it's more swollen. More painful. Just More.....
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.

Now let me see if I have this correct.

Pottery doesn't wear shoes.
Rob doesn't wear shoes.
Shep doesn't wear shoes.

Pottery has injured himself twice.
Because he was not wearing shoes
.

There is a good chance that Rob or Shep will be next.
Or both of them matter of fact.

Don't say I didn't warn you both.

Little boys don't wear shoes.

Grown men wear shoes.

There is a message there also. :)

That's true...

But I have also had other injuries that cannot be blamed on barefootedness.
But come to think of it, they were mostly all self inflicted.
That's a bad admission to make, I know.
Maybe I'll compromise and start wearing a hat. Or a feather head dress like Stooping Bull or whatever his name was.

I just happen to know where Lady Pott has a bunch of very nice feathers stuck into a vase....

Well, he can tolerate a floating hotel given the right meds.
Would take something way stronger for me to tolerate one.

Shoes? You mean those things you wear to church and business meetings? Hmmmm.

Why would anyone with such a well manicured lawn in suburban Macon need to wear shoes.

Oh, yeah...Copperheads.

When I was a young, Mom referred to us kids as "The Blackfoot Tribe."


I'm with you on that one.

There would be numerous claw marks on the gangway and bruises about the face and throat on anyone who tried to drag me onto a cruise ship.

They are about as germ free as a McDonald's play gym, and as crowded as a county jail.

I'm not genetically wired for such.

My Darwin genes would kick in.

Goofy and family are on vacation on a Cruise Ship, they stopped at some little island and went horseback riding, the horse named Jerry liked to ride in the middle of the street, temp was in the 60's and the NavX phone app he has on his phone works better than Google or WheretheFarewe.

If I may be of service in the future please do not hesitate to call on me. As usual please send my retainer to my numbered acct you know where. :)

This is interesting as well.

Walking barefoot helps pump blood back to the heart which is beneficial for those who suffer from varicose veins.

How strange!
You must be just next door !
Same thing happened here. I hobbled out and had a look (well, I was going to check on a plant that needed irrigation, actually). It's fine now. The plant. And have no fear, it's quite a long way from the house. But it's getting close to another pain zapper tablet, around here.

It's swollen, red, warm, paining like anything.
And that's just my foot !

Have a bunch of music cued up and ready to post on the laptop.
Unfortunately, I'm spending the evening out on the deck watching the young Great Horned hunt. If I open the laptop out there tonight, even with the rain, the skeeters will carry me away and you guys would have to mount another "rescue the Captain" mission. With so many out on sick leave, I'd rather not risk that.

Back later. Enjoy the night.

Ahh, it is good to be above ground I must say, yes, it is I snakeymon, Ranger Sp....Rick I mean, reporting in again, I am home, leg wrapped like a Mummy. It seems that Dr. Frankenstein, yes, I am now calling them all Dr. Frakenstein you see, thought it would be better in the long run to go ahead and remove all of the varicose veins in the left leg at one time rather than spread it out to three procedures, so I was not only Ablated but sliced and diced from the hip to the ankle area and all points in between those areas. This guy was much better than the first bozo I went to. This guy gave me a wonderful happy pill first, then numbed the entire outside of the leg and then the entire inside of the leg. Wise man he was. Of course I did tell him how I almost strangled the other bozo so this Dr. was not taking any chances! :)

Also sent me home with bottles of happy pills to ensure that I stayed happy and content until next week when he will remove the stitches. Very wise man he was. :)

Pottery my good man, didn't you tell us some time back that you were injured walking around outside without shoes? And now you have again been injured walking around outside without shoes? There seems to be some sort of pattern there I think. I shall think about that for a few hours and see if I can come up with a solution for you to insure that this type of thing doesn't happen for a THIRD TIME. If I were not under the influence of some potent medicinal potions I could probably give you an answer right away but I seem to have forgotten what the original problem was now and shall have to concentrate for a few hours and see if I can remember where this started and see if I can track it backwards to its completion. I finally found the little dot that is supposed to end this coversation.

Don't wait up for me, it took me a long time just to find this blog. No telling how long it will be before I can find it again. :)

Medical Report # 588.....

Well, this is rather Embarrassing, to me....

Seems that the Impact with the Stump only exacerbated the condition that was hovering around.

"The onset of GOUT is usually fast and can be extremely painful. It will most likely affect the joint where the toe meets the foot"

So. There you have it.
Reduce the Intake of foods with certain oils. - check
Keep well hydrated. - check
Avoid alcohol - DAMM

Oh well.

Yeah, Pottery. Been watching stuff on Sat almost reach you but not.

All that stuff over and south of Cuba might collide with the frontal boundary right about...here. Could be interesting, hopefully not too much so.

You were supposed to get some grout, not gout. Okay an easy mistake to make but hurry up and get rid of that!
It's no fun from what I understand. Hope you feel better soon!

Getting quite blustery outside, although we are only getting the first traces of rain today.

No sign of rain today, and the stuff to the east seems rather Hesitant to come visiting.

SOG:  0.7-2.2  as we ride over the trails.  One horse power.  Jerry like the middle of the road. 60s clear skies.  Nice view from the verandah but better from  Deck Five.  NavX on phone ok as long as signal strength.  Loaded chart  for Mackinack St. Works better than giggle or fugagui.  At least here on an island surrounded entirely by water.

Happy noontime, Rob!

This weekend's dismal weather, in our area, finally ended on a bit of a high note by late last night, when hubby and I finally caught a clear view of the nearly full "Harvest Moon". I wish our local street lamps illuminated as brightly for one could clearly see up and down the streets for a change. LOL! While driving up to nearby Derry, NH, in the afternoon, the autumnal colors seemed in or near peak. Usually, we don't see as much colorful foliage until, at least, the first full week of October has passed. We just hope this doesn't mean a jump into those frigidly cold winter months as well. At least, this week, we're expecting a pleasant reprieve from recent chillier than normal weather, as our daytime highs are expected to reach the lower to mid 70's! Sure would be nice returning to lighter clothes and lower home heating costs even for a week.

Hope your work week is as pleasant as your seemingly relaxing weekend!
