JOE! What the heck are you doing with a new avatar? I wondered where you went! Don't do that to me! Us old guys gotta stick together and not contribute to confusion. ( the second bad thing that happens with age)
Hey Buddy, thanks for realizing I was gone. first, I have been AWOL for two reasons, minimum. My Mom, who turns 80 tomorrow had a double mastectomy plus removal of most of her right upper side where some lymph gland or something is) a couple of months ago and has been undergoing chemo therapy (ugh, how horrible.) I am the youngest of three and the only one in the area where my folks live. I also have been not doing well with my back which seems to just get worse every month/year so I am pretty much an indoor dog now so haven't been shooting nearly what I'd LIKE TO DO. THE DRUGS KEEP ME ASLEEP ALMOST 24/7 SO i HAVE NO LIFE. next MONTH i SEE AN ACTUAL PAIN THERAPY DOCTOR TO SEE IF i CAN'T GET SOMETHING THAT WILL BOTH WORK AND STIL GIVE ME A LIFE.
aS FOR THE AVATAR, i DID LIKE MY THREE STOOGES ONE, BUT WHEN i SAW THIS ONE, i HAD A CHOICE, ASK belmond IF HE .........
Sorry. damn key cap thing. I thought I removed it but it's back somehow and I will have to hack it again. too long a post to redo, so sorry for yelling.
Anyway, when I saw the avatar, it looked just like I felt all winter. I also thought about asking Belmondo if he wanted it. Seems like he like he might like it, not sure why, but it struck me it might be one he'd like to put the hex on us with. All said with my heart Belmondo!!! But would you agree that if you say it you might have chosen it? Just ask, and I'll go back to the three stooges or something. Speaking of avatars, I thought by now I'd have one of those sayang below my name. Post count is up and I have been a good boy lately! Lol.
I better quit while I am behind. thanks for thinking of me Don. It's nice to know that my absence was noticed.
Oh, unless the back improves some Belmondo, I wont be down anytime son. Seems like prices are still dropping on homes, so that is god. My daughter has also been accepted to law schools at UC Davis and Pepperdine, among others, but those are looking like she may choose between these for law school next year. If she picks UC Davis, about 40 miles from us, we would try to buy her a small home in a nearby city, as Davis is overpriced also. If it is Pepperdine, which includes a $23K scholarship per year, forget homes in that area... (Malibu...... I couldn't afford to rent a Port-A-Potty there!) WAY to expensive! If we get her a starter home, good bye Joe's winter condo, more than likely, as the well wold be pretty much dry! I am rooting for UC Davis even at the extra costs for us, since we are footing the bill 100%.
Oh, to keep within the rules, I have sent my M3 back yet. Will contact them this week to see if my return sticker is still good. Sorry all for disjointed post, meds sometimes has this effect if I don't eat beforehand.
Nap time again.
