  1. Yup. Not fun. 99% blockage of LAD. Went by ambulance to Marquette hospital straight to Cath Lab. Went through the wrist instead of the groin. I hear that's a much better way to do it. Rest of my heart looks good. Just that one blockage. So ya, I'll be here til Wednesday.

  3. Been with this company in various forms since 2009. Just got called in to discuss pay and other compensation. Walked out with the biggest single pay raise I have ever received in my life. Shocked to say the least. Completely unexpected and greatly appreciated.

  4. G man turns 16 today. Hard for me to really grasp that he's that old. We had been working on the Toyota pickup. It was running and driving really well. But then an oil leak, and a coolant leak. Just too much stuff to track down. He loves the Jeep XJ's. So Thursday he said we should sell the Yota and get an XJ. Well the Yota sold in 8 hours. And for more than I thought it would. We found him the perfect XJ. He doesn't even know yet. We're giving it to him tonight.

  6. She was working on a full size blanket for each of the twins when she died. I saw she was struggling with it and encourage her to finish it the size it is. She said no I want to add one more section or it won’t look right. She wasn’t able to finish it. I didn’t know what to do with it and my daughter in law said “I’ll finish it for you dad, Esther taught me how to crochet”. They are packing to drive back to Georgia right now. She finished the blanket this morning.

  8. She hasn’t wanted to eat for two weeks. I made some chicken noodle soup for her last week because it’s one of her favorites. I got her to eat three spoonfuls and she said she didn’t want anymore. I just threw out the rest of it today. One day I got her to eat four spoonfuls of oatmeal with blueberries and honey. Most days she won’t eat anything at all. Today I made some banana pudding and drizzled Hershey syrup on it. I got her to eat what I brought her, probably a dozen bites.

  10. I know most people get tired of these pics, but I just couldn't help myself. My son just sent this to me. This pic was taken right after she was told that her grandfather is a Road Runner. She seems to be doing a good job of hiding her disappointment.

  14. This little elderly lady has been very sick. My husband said she is this soft spoken little lady. When she saw him in her room, she said "You are the best nurse. You have taken such great care of me. I want to buy you lunch. There is this local place that has great food. I want to buy you their spicy cheeseburger. " Then she goes on to explain how it is prepared and how she wants to buy it for him. She says her friend is coming to visit and will pick up the lunch and bring it to him, cause he has helped her so much in the hospital. My husband tried to tell her no and then s

  16. “For every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction.” Where there is death there is also life. Where there is heartache, there is also joy. This is the great dichotomy of life. This week, I welcomed my fourth grandchild into the world: And this one is my namesake. 😊 My heart is truly overwhelmed. And though life takes from us, it also gives. And I am truly blessed with my children and the beauty they’ve created in this world. Peace

  19. Wo46 and I had a good sidecar race but could only get 2nd place. We did shave 9 seconds off of last years fastest lap time. Our son finished 2nd in his race with a drag race to the finish and lost by .046 of a second. But out of all the losers we are the best losers.

  22. Today was the first time I used the live update on my shiny new garmin computer. Left at around 5:30 put in a 30 mile out n back. Asked my wife if she got the email (she's on the notification) and she said sure. I was kinda excited interested and followed up with how'd it look. She said it was kinda boring. The dot was moving so slow. That hurt honey, that hurt.

  24. LMAO! Mr. Hip was out there doing fence work today. The Foreman was shocked at how much he got done today. He has also seen him work driving the backhoe, and other assorted construction things that was specified as owner responsibility. The Foreman said " WOW! You got all that barbed wire out already? If you ever want a job..." My husband just laughed and replied "Not bad for a nurse, eh?"

  29. She is 10 years old, and we have had her since early November. Took her a while to adjust, but she has finally decided this is home. She thinks I am OK, since I share my blankets with her. Of course, she is partial to my wife.

  31. Yesterday she was pretty good. This morning she was kind of out of it as we were giving her bath. Just as Jocelyn was starting down the steps to leave my wife started to gag. Jocelyn stopped and came back upstairs and asked her if she was ok. She said go ahead and go, I’ll be ok. She is not ok. She hasn’t wanted a thing to eat since I gave her breakfast at 8am. We have been looking forward To having the grandkids over tomorrow. I haven’t called it off yet. If Esther is as bad tomorrow as she is today it won’t be much fun for anyone. I just watched our Christmas Eve service online. One of my gr

  32. I installed our cabinets but my crown at the top looked like dogshit. So our house project stalled out so close to the finished. I watched the youtubes but there is a reason that I am not a finish carpenter. My buddy that lives a street over was telling me about the new guy that just moved in. He's super cool, he's a carpenter and he just got laid off due to Covid bullshit. He was looking for side jobs. Gave him a call. He made quick work of the molding on my new cabinets. He even adjusted the hinges. He is also coming back tonight to put some matching molding up on our ex

  33. So this happened on Friday. I was informed on Friday that I have been nominated and accepted to receive The BSA Silver Beaver. Was not expecting this at all and was floored by the phone call from an old friend to let me know of the honor. The Silver Beaver Award is the council-level distinguished service award of the Boy Scouts of America. Upon nomination by their local Scout council and with the approval of the National Court of Honor, recipients of this award are registered adult leaders who have made an impact on the lives of youth through service given to the council.[1]

  35. mr. and I celebrated 28 years together this past Saturday. But, I almost took out a lease on an apartment last week Monday, I was so done with being called mentally ill in various ways. But, that argument faded and then passed. It’s complicated. We’re going forward with kitchen remodel plans. Living year 29 together.

  36. Mom's health has been going down hill for a while now. She's been feeling better since she started dialysis but she is having a hard time getting in and out of her chair so on a last minute decision I bought her a new recliner. I was driving past the little mom and pop furniture store in town and bought her a new power lift recliner. Wo46 and I delivered it to her this afternoon and she started tearing up.

  38. Dermatologist #2 called. The dark shadow between my eye and bridge of my nose is squamous cell carcinoma. Mohs surgery is scheduled for 8/19. Here’s hoping we get it all. I think he recommended that I should seek shelter from the sun in an Irish pub. Doctor’s orders and all that.

  39. To tell me he did his Good Turn for the day. He was at the gas station and a guy walked up with a gas can. Asked Wade if he would fill it up. Told him we was out of gas and his family was stuck in the car. Wade asked him where he lived and he said South Dallas, to which Wade replied "That is not enough gas, go get your car started and bring it here, and I will fill it up" Guy came back a bit later with his wife, two kids and grandfather in the car and Wade filled their tank for them. They shook hands and went their separate ways, and I hope each of them truly appreciate the enor

Used to ride at 110 pounds in the 23 tires, today I rode at about 90, could have gone to 85, maybe even 80. Makes a big difference. Can't believe how nice the bike handles. Very short wheelbase, need to be super careful when clipped and going slow as there is significant toe overlap. Riding in the drops, the thing felt glued to the road. Not really anywhere to go too fast, hit about 30 again, felt rock soli

  42. But at least I am in my own home with power and water. I am blessed to have some awesome friends, both real and imaginary. I thank you all for your well wishes and laughter inducing posts during what has been a crazy week. Tomorrow I will shower and go back to my office I hope. Letting the hot water heater play catch up tonight. That and I have a 7 pm Scout call, during which call my coffee mug may contain rum, but I will still pretend to blow on it like it was full of hot coffee.

  44. I just beat my yearly mileage record of 6,510 miles (from 2018), to 6,520 miles as of todayand with month to go Going into this year I had no idea what riding was going to be like, and had no goal other than to just ride. I still can't believe the amount of riding I've done, and yet its all true. And (knock on wood) I feel great, and back to my old form IMO. Just wanted share.

  45. ....or more accurately Bear Creek Road. A long, long, long, long time ago, when I was a kid, for two weeks each summer, my parents would ship my sister and I off to my grandparents’ house, on Bear Creek Road. This was the house my grandmother grew up in, and when my grandfather retired, they moved back there, from Brooklyn. Being the middle of nowhere, it was the perfect place for kids to....just be kids. (It’s only recently that I’ve realized that I probably also remember it fondly because it was the only time I was out from under my mother’s thumb....🤨) So yesterday, I rode from ca
