    :D
    Lax is exactly where I am in the PT. I’d rather take a nap. I definitely need the regimented follow through with a Personal Terrorist to keep me going:D.

    As for the ex, I’m fine as long as he doesn’t know where I live... otherwise he’d be over here bugging me all the time. He’s mad at my daughter for moving (hello...the Navy said “move” so you move) and he blames her for the divorce. All the same, much like the multitude of items that caused the divorce (which I will not mention), he refuses to accept responsibility for his role in the marital breakdown and his lack of any relationship with his children or grandchildren. He exists in a very angry and lonely world that I can’t be part of. I got out and am alive and happier being alone than I ever was being depressed with him and wanting to end it all. That’s not to say I won’t be civil if we are at a family function or something. I do take that high road, I just never want him getting the impression I’d come back to him. Never happen.

    Good afternoon Pops and Popsadoodles. We don't play today which I had forgotten, so I could watch games and root for embarrassing losses on other teams, but Montanalo said karma of which I want none. Before that, Jan said ex. Now ex is in a dictionary all by it's self and I've pasted pictures over the dictionary's picture. I could hold a massive powwow but I won't. That danged karma word keeps floating by.

    I think today is painting day as I'm equipped with many brushes and two new cans. I only plan to do one room though, my expansive bathroom. This could take an hour or two, maybe three or possibly four. I just want to do it right.

    I got my selections in, Dabz. The subtle urges to pick the underdogs was contained for the most part. The 49er's loss last week was almost more delightful than our win. Karma, karma, karma. I'd better shut up now.

    Have a good game day everyone!

    Jan, all you really have to do to winterize your mower and your tiller, assuming they're both gasoline powered, is run them until the run fully out of gas. You don't want any fuel in the lines, because they could gunk up your lines and carburetor. It's also a good time to change the oil, but not necessarily needed.

    Thanks Runny. Figured I’d put new oil in and either run it out of gas or put some Stabil in the tank. Been years since I had to do any of this so trying to figure it all out again... and yes they are both straight gas, not 2-cycle.

    Morning Pops and peeps. My wife has cataract surgery on her left eye this morning. Everyone I know who has had the surgery, including me, was thrilled with the results. I hope she will be too.

    I expected we would lose to the Cards, so I wasn't surprised, but I hoped we wouldn't look so bad.
    Have a good day and stay safe.

    A friend of mine had his right eye done last Tuesday and is getting his left eye done today as well. He’s quite happy about it, although he’s not happy about getting it done at his age. He’s 53 but has a few self-inflicted health issues to go along with it like diabetes and blood pressure issues. So the same, he’s happy with the results so far.

    Morning Pops and Popsadoodles. The bathroom saga continues. I found spots needing more spackle before painting, so no painting yet. I live an exciting life.

    Wishing your wife a successful surgery and speedy recovery, Leon.

    Have a good Tuesday everyone.

    Morning Pops and everyone.

    Daughter and the grands flew in last night. Some things change while some things stay the same. They’ve grown so much in the last year but thankfully they all have the same sweet hearts.

    Gotta go grab a shower before the inevitable chaos sets in. I’m thinking from-scratch blueberry pancakes are on the menu this morning with sausage and eggs. As for me, I need coffee. Best get it moving.

    Have a great day

    Morning, Pops and pen pals. Thanks for the well wishes for my wife. She is doing well and the results are good so far.

    My eyesight is pretty bad today. Fortunately, I get the shots in my eyes tomorrow and it will be improved for the next four weeks.

    Afternoon Pops and Popsadoodles. I might as well make a confession, it finally happened to me. We've all seen it in movies and hoped it would never happen to us. Yesterday it happened and I didn't have a table to crawl under. Yep, right there in front of the back half of Sam's. Do you know how many people can congregate around the pastries?

    Ok, there I was innocently shopping like Coach and I know how to do. I saw some cute tumblers in assorted colors. Some people didn't like the combinations and swapped tumblers around, so there were opened boxes. I pulled out next to the last tumbler set three rows down. That's right, those were almost Dallas blue. Nothing fell, but I wanted to move something down there to keep things from falling. You can guess what happens next and Steve Martin wasn't there to greet all the startled faces. My arms were around the tumblers still standing and I didn't know what would happen when I backed up. My life didn't have time to flash before my eyes, but you could hear my butt hole pucker. Yep, that's what you heard yesterday afternoon. I chased tumblers around that had fallen forward but couldn't do anything with those that fell behind. It's going to take a while before I have the courage to shop in that quadrant of the store again. If you can avoid this situation, I highly encourage you to do so.

    Today was supposed to be a beautiful day. I caught a green light right off the bat which rarely happens. I am guilty of taking the gas station just to by pass that light. Then the roads opened up and I had to stop myself from going 100 which was getting good to me. I had to have blood work done, so I pulled into the parking lot and the primo spot was waiting for me. I couldn't believe it! I walked in and admitting was empty except for me. I walked straight up and remembered that I'd left my blood orders at home. That was when the day backed up and started hissing at me. When I saw my doctor, I'd failed everyone of my tests. I'm glad she wasn't checking for more stuff. I will bang the gong now and admit to nothing else. That wasn't me. Nope, that wasn't me either.

    Have a good Wednesday y'all.

    There's something I'd never expect to read: "Fortunately, I get the shots in my eyes....". I didn't realize you had to do that every month. Is that a permanent situation, or do you just have to get them every month for a specified duration, then you're all fixed up?

    Oh, that sucks, X! Can you do extra credit to get your test scores up?

    I was going to post a "Wanna get away?" meme, but the bad news about your tests kinda took me out of the mood for that. Seriously though, is there something you can do to improve your results?

    Thank you, Runny. It was a perfect "want to get away" time. As for the test, there are things I can do and things medicine is going to have to give me a hand on.

    As long as you do better on your next test, you can keep your allowance. ;)

    I was laughing up until the failed tests and do not like the sound of that. When we start getting up there, can't fail tests like we could in first year Algebra.

    I do, however, willingly fail my docs tests about "is he reducing sin in his life in order to have a less fun but longer life"? I can't do all the sins now so smoking cigars and drinking whiskey is about it unless you count listening to music with questionable lyrics filled with wrong life choices.

    I get the meds part of that X girl as that's my response to my doc every time. "Hey, you cats have produced meds to fix all of this". Hell, I have a special section in my medicine cabinet labeled "Bad Behavior Pills".

    Every new prescription that they add to my growing list, and getting my photo on the pharm companies love boards in the coffee break rooms, increases my depression and that's the only thing I don't take meds for.

    X girl, you listen to me and you listen well, do as I say, not as I do. Ahhhh, my life's work.

    You WILL pass the next tests with flying colors or we're going to grab one of those paint cans in your bathroom and we'll paint you. And you know how I hate those jobs around the house.
