I'm still on Workmen's comp for my knee injury. It will be two years in February.That blows my mind. It was supposed to be a simple arthroscopic surgery then back to work in a few weeks. I'm not going to go over the whole sequence of events as it is covered in other post. But in this two year period, I've gone to the Emergency Room because I had the tip of my nose bitten off by our dog Carmel,and two stints in the looney bin after a couple deep depressions. So I'm not laid off, But I believe that soon Workmen's comp will want to settle and I will need to go back to work. I can't return to Truck driving which is somewhat of a disappointment as I made pretty good money doing that. So as I look at the economy tanking is does give me some pause as to my blight. I know others have it far worse that me, at least Cindy has a decent job. My self worth is tied into my not working though. When you've done something for almost 30 years it's kind of hard to wake up every day and not go to work.(Aren't those some awesome looking legs).
There are a couple of pieces of good news for those of us that live in the fine state of New York. First of all. Ding Dong the witch is dead, ding dong the witch is dead... Billary Clinton has left the building. She will no longer clog up a Senate seat. She was a do nothing Senator. We can only hope she will take those same skills to the state department. The second piece of good news is that Carolyn(I'll use my Kennedy name) will not becoming to further waste the seat. I'm sick and tired of all the games they play in politics. I think I'll buy an Island somewhere and start my own country. Is anybody with me? No. I didn't think so. Oh well.
