  1. Tomorrow is the granddudes birthday. My wife hasn’t seen any grandkids for three weeks. I’m hoping she feels up to a short visit tomorrow with them. It’s not likely she will but it would do her a world of good if she could. Moving around at all really makes her dizzy. The granddudes will be two years old tomorrow and they are so much fun. They ask about her every time I see them. They made a video for her on Sunday. She was watching it again tonight and crying.

    You could dance, the hillbilly band was playing down on the lower level where the dance floor is. I sat at the bar and could only see a couple of the band members from where I was sitting and couldn’t see if anyone was dancing but I’m sure they were.

    credit card limits

    I don’t use credit cards. I always have a couple with no annual fee just in case. My bank talked me into a 12% card with cash back and $100 bonus for signing up. I had to spend $1,000 to get the $100. I bought gas and groceries until I spent the $1000, I would transfer the money the same day from my phone to make sure there was never an interest charge. I don’t enjoy playing those games so once I got my $100 I stopped using the card. I still have it. I also have a card a really cute girl suckered me into. I was buying something at old navy and paid with my debit card. She asked me if I had their rewards card. I said I didn’t. She said if I signed up for one today I would get 20% off today’s purchase. I gave her my information but my purchase never appeared on my bank account. A month later I got a credit card bill for the purchase minus the 20%. And two shiny new credit cards which I have never used. It was a dirty trick but she was so cute I let her get away with it. I don’t carry that card but I might still have it in a desk drawer.

    Young parent(s) then & now

    My eldest boy’s birth mom was twelve when she got pregnant, thirteen by the time he was born. Our middle son’s mom was 29 but she had already had two kids before him. Our youngest son’s mom was in college, probably 19, or twenty when she had him.

    Broadband is out.

    Broadband sounds like an all girl band. I like all girl bands. I have barely broadband at home, it sucks. The problem with living in the boonies.

    Four hrs and counting in the ER

    I was expecting to go to Pittsburgh arriving at 1:00 pm. The time the website said was the start of visiting hours. I had my wife double check because the hours were confusing and she told me in the Snyder Cancer Center there were no restrictions I could come anytime. I left in a hurry and was on the interstate by the time I realized I forgot my glasses. Not a big deal in the daylight but driving home was tough. That sounds delightful except you over estimate this redneck bar. They have beer, burgers, and wings. I think they have tacos on Tuesday. If you want a desert have another beer. I almost made a video of the place but figured I better not.

    Remember that time you drank beer?

    When I was a long hair I hung out at a place called “The Freakout”. They had great bands and the chicks were super hot but all they served was Stroh’s. I have memories of getting so sick on stroh’s.

    It’s smothered in jalapeños and pepper cheese, it’s pretty good.

    It just arrived, it doesn’t look very good, I should have just gone home.

    Pretty much, I told them I was going to give up and just go. They said my order is almost ready.

    So far so good. They told me to go home during rush hour. I would look for another job before I would deal with that every day. I still haven’t made it home. I haven’t had anything to eat since 7am so I stopped for a beer and a burger. Still waiting on the burger, this redneck bar has a hillbilly band playing tonight and it’s packed out.

    They explained all about the mask for the gamma knife they were going to use yesterday. Today they called us down for a consultation and said the gamma knife might be three weeks before it’s ready. They think they can get it with high dose radiation so that’s why the radiation mask. The room service is great. My wife also has a nurse camped right outside her door. This room she is in has a lot of stuff I don’t know what they use it for. They have three sinks and a place with a hook up similar to what you use for a washing machine. This hospital is huge. I tried to pay attention when the escort was wheeling WOLJ down for the consultation, no way would I be able to find my way back out of there.

    Whelp it looks like they are going to keep my wife overnight again. She still needs another mri so I guess I have to do this again tomorrow. They made her mask today.

    How Often Do You Bake?

    I baked every Saturday for many years. Muffins, coffee cake, biscottis, nut bread, cup cakes. When we started going to another campus of our church I stopped baking. I was just thinking about all my cake pans, muffin pans, cookie sheets, Rubbermaid containers, etc. I should probably get rid of them. I have most of that stuff stored in totes downstairs but I’m not going to use them again.
