  1. I do understand the concerns and steps taken to make it less hard for your family. 

    Yet I truly believe you will come out of this healthier and stronger. And since you may be laid up a bit, more time to post in the Saloon!

  2. Heard word my sister and bil evacuated. Their house still standing. Good news.


    Not sure which chem plant is burning, would NOT want to be near any of them. Place was declared a superfund site. Toxic stuff. 


    And they closed the I10 bridge. Good, it should have been closed years ago. Never liked driving over it. Built in the 20's in a sub tropical climate. Been unsafe for years.

  3. Love the dogos.


    My Buster was dumped with siblings on a hunting lease. The hunters managed to catch them and all were rehomed. We got this little guy, vet said he was a full blooded chihuahua. No diseases, but was skin and bones. Very malnourished.  Took a while to get some weight on him, and had to have some bad toofies pulled. Drugs from that put him down for the night. Had to carry him down the stairs to go.  Best dog ever, helped me through the worst time of my life. Here he is enjoying a chilly sunny fall day.

    A few years ago here in Reno, I bought an AR15, 1,000 rounds of ammo, and several 30 round magazines.  It took me about 45 minutes from the time I walked in and browsed to the time I was putting my purchase in my pick up truck to go home.


    How long did the ammo last? Not long I'm guessing.

    We know a couple who leaves tree tree up year year round. Looked kinda dusty when we last saw it. 


    Yuck. Sounds like a fire hazard.

    There are some houses that leave their lights up all year round here. They don't turn them on till December, yet you can see them all year.

    I, for one, will take a Glock over any other handgun, any day, and definitely over any 1911.

    Well Whiskey,   sure hate to hear of this health situation but getting into the hospital for the weekend

    could very well be a very good thing.    I feel your pain.


    I been dealing with a calcified heart valve the past few years and FINALLY, I think the doctors are gonna fix it.

    So, 2 weeks back, I had to get an Echocardiogram.   No big deal.

    Then, last week, the doctor gave me the results on Tuesday.   Early Wednesday morning, I was getting a heart cath to

    determine a bunch of stuff they need to know before doing the valve replacement, including the valve size.

    This was my 7th heart cath.


    I also got to come home on Wednesday, just to visit my dentist with a bad tooth.   Thursday, the bad tooth started

    acting up and I was in tear jerking pain thru Friday night when HE gave me some pain meds.

    They worked.


    BUT, Yesterday (Wednesday) I had to have a root canal for that bad tooth   ( I don't have dental insurance... :o


    Can I join your 'Stuck, Prodded and IV'd posse?


    I wish you well.

    P.S. - I got me a good nurse also.   Actually, she was a Nurse Practitioner till she retire.

    Now she is MY nurse, chef, moral supporter, etc..........






    You are welcome to join the posse. Don't think you will like it much.

    Hope for a speedy recovery for you


  9. I had an iv in each arm and was bedridden. And one of the nurses yelled me. She was mean about it. At least the food was decent.

    Plan on getting soon. Got me a nurse to yell at

  10. So last week had blood drawn. Hemoglobin was low. 6.3. Potassium, very low.

    I asked the doc if I had to spend the night in the hospital. At least he said. Friday till Monday. I can't drive and friends and family have to walk the doggo.

    Hope to feel better soon. One good thing is my excellent support system.
