Snow removal team came around blew snow and ice into a flock of trucks and carted it away.

Did it just in time; the banks were too high to see over and we were down to one lane and it was tight!!

Just read some e-mails from friends in Amritsar, India and Dacre, Senegal, complaining about the heat and wishing me well with the radiation treatments.

(Only 9 more scheduled)

May just have to deal with them.

Now get the heck off my snow covered lawn.

We dont have any snow but we do have a landslide blocking one side of I 24 north of Nashville. The word this morning is that it may take a month to clear it, it is still moving, on one of the busiest corridors into the city. Gonna be a major mess. So, lawn, get off of us.

OK, I'm GRUMPY, but grateful.

Had to show up for radiation at 7:30 this AM. OK that's doable; up at 5:00 coffee and breakfast, shaved, showered and.... whatever.

Get the the hospital after swilling down a lot of water. (They want your bladder full and your bowel empty) - OK so far.

8:00 AM and I find out the unit I receive treatment in has their machine down and the treatment list is backed up. - OH-OH! Full bladder!!

Sit with legs crossed practicing Kegel exercises until it's nearly too late, but make it to the facility. Ahh! Sweet Relief!

But now bladder is empty. Have to start over with water to refill prior to treatment

OK, start drinking..

Finally get to radiation machine at 8:45 for the treatment, then rush to the facility for sweet relief. Three sweet reliefs before attempting to drive home.

Then two stops along the way.

BUT the treatment got done.

So I'm grumpy but grateful.

Got an Old Stove-up Cowboy stopping by to check da place as he sees fit ,,, Drink any Coffee he makes at your own Risk .... He's half blind so he Will wait till any Sneaky Younkers get real close before he Captures them an make them drink his Coffee an Listen to his Stories till dawn .... bout then he nods of and they can make a run for it ... ID showing Grump Status will allow you to avoid his Coffee....

Do Not spread yer bedroll out on da bottom bunk next to da Window if ya needs an place fer da night ,,,, He will make you understand a New level of Grumpyness  if Ya Does .... Might I suggest the bunk on da west side, placing any Newbe's on da bunk on the North wall so they can feed da Stove fer heat ....Da wood is under that bunk ... If Ya  runs short of wood it's out behind the Nessary all Cut an Split ...

Avoid the South deck on da Main house Wolfee regards that as his He's all grown up now and bout 140 pounds of Grumpyness except fer with Lil Kids ...

 

Well keep da Grump thread on top ,,,, Where we belong ..... And Stay Grumpy !!!!

Have a good, safe trip Jabez.

We'll keep the fire going while you're away.

 

Starting to feel a little better, after a rough week, following the completion of my radiation treatments. 

Continuing sweats and ...........other "potential problems" I was warned about.

Let's say I was glad I followed advice and did a lot of Kegel exercises before and during my treatments.

Staying close to home while getting ready for the radioactive seed implants.

 

They're telling me I'll have to stay at least 10 feet away from children and pregnant women, so my neighbour Phat's kids are going to have to be told why they can't hang around old "uncle" Terry for a while.  Good thing they're now old enough to understand. 

Apparently, I'll have to have a card explaining why all the bells and whistles go off if I try to cross the US/Canada border.

I'll have to find out how long I'll be dangerous

 

Getting ready for my St. Patrick's Day; Irish Tea Cake and Corned Beef & Cabbage dinner with Rooster, Red Storm and Clangity Jane joining us.

CLK we hope you dont glow when all this done.  Jabez Yes Widder comes to Wartrace 3-4 times a year. I have shot in East tenn some with him. I often time the side matches at the Tenn State match, he has a furious competition going with Red Knee. We hope to see Red Knee this fall at TN State again.

So how zackly does one officially become a Pistolero> I have only been at it for a couple of months. Is it like Jedi Gunfighters and have to do it for a year? Does an established Pistolero have to nominate you or is it self proclaimed? I nominated myself a Josey Wales shooter.

 

Imis looking at mowing soon , the weeds are starting up, get off the lawn

Actually, I had been hoping my pee would glow in the dark, when I make one of my many nightly forays to the throne room, but no such luck.

Oh well.

Waiting for April 27 and the first match of the year for The Ottawa Valley Marauders.

I figure (hope?) I'll be a lot better by then.

Been loading up some .45's for the event and, hopefully, some practice before hand. 

Haven't shot since last August, do I'll have read up on which end goes BANG! and which way the cartridges go in.

Hey, no laughing at the old timer.

Now get off the snow covered lawn!

It is St Paddy's day. I think I will put on green drawers and show everybody today. Jabez is in Uganda, Jersey Bratt is in Florida and i am in a state of confusion. But that is nothing new for a Grumpy Old Man With Guns.

If'n Jabez saw where this thread had dropped to, he would be disappointed and even GRUMPIER than normal.

I'll start with MY grump!

Caught a bug on St. Patrick's Day that got progressively worse.

Not too big a deal, Rooster, Red Storm and Clangity Jane (All, like me, of Irish Descent) were here and got all the left-overs put away, while I went to bed.

Fast forward a couple of days and the plague has dropped into my lungs; I'm wheezing away and scheduled for radioactive seed implants on the coming Monday, so it's off to the Doctor for antibiotics and an inhaler.

Still not totally better, so now my procedure is delayed for a few days, while my lungs clear and allow them to knock me out for the implant ceremony.

Oh well. At least #1 Son, AKA BIG RED is taking the day off so he can drive his old man to and from the Cancer clinic.

Now get off the lawn.
