Enjoy your weekend. I'm going to.













This photo was taken after one of Stephany's walks. Koda sent it to Indy via  email attachment. That walking really looks like it is helping your legs Stephany.














Hey Comrade Oblah-blah, how are you liking the "change". It isn't so easy when you have the media finally question something you do is it?  Just wait until they get the taste of the Kool Aid out of their mouths. They will find out what the rest of us already knew. You just ain't got a clue. Heck even Momma on her blog is beating up the Messiah. She doesn't get to political as a rule so you must really be making her mad.

My Yankees are on a roll. They just won their 5th game in a row. They won it tonight with a hit in the bottom of the 9th with bases loaded. {Sweet}

Momma's going to till her garden Sunday. We have some friends of her's coming over for a little cook out and Her and Barb are going to till the garden. It's only going to be about a 12 by 12. That will be nice getting fresh tomato's just by going outside. She's also going to have Zucchini, summer squash, pumpkin, sunflower and some snap peas. Heck if we can get a couple of pigs and some moo cows we'll be all set.

Ah I forgot. Besides our Saturday morning breakfast with Shawn and Pat we're going to Cindy's brother Tom's house for a cook out to help send Tom's daughter Gretchen on her way into the Navy. I think she leaves Monday. She's going to be in for a culture shock. It will be good for her though.

I'm justa wondering?

Farmer Joe decided his injuries from his recent accident were serious enough to take the trucking company responsible for the accident to court.

In court, the trucking company’s fancy lawyer was questioning farmer Joe.
“Didn’t you say, at the scene of the accident, that you were fine?”

“Well, I’ll tell you what happened. I had just loaded my favorite mule Bessie into the–”

“I didn’t ask for any details,” the lawyer interrupted. “Just answer the question. Did you not say, at the scene of the accident, that you were fine?”

“Well I had just got Bessie into the trailer and was driving down the road–”

“Judge, I am trying to establish the fact that, at the scene of the accident, this man told the Highway Patrolman on the scene that he was just fine.

Now several weeks after the accident he is trying to sue my client. I believe he is a fraud. Please tell him to simply answer the question.”

By this time the Judge was fairly interested in Farmer Joe’s answer and told the lawyer so.

“Well,” said the farmer, “as I was saying, I had just loaded Bessie, my favorite mule, into the trailer and was driving her down the highway when this huge semi-truck and trailer ran the stop sign and smacked my truck right in the side.

I was thrown into one ditch and Bessie was thrown into the other. I was hurting real bad and didn’t want to move.

However, I could hear ol’ Bessie moaning and groaning. I knew she was in terrible shape just by her groans.

Shortly after the accident a Highway Patrolman came on the scene. He could hear Bessie moaning and groaning so he went over to her. After he looked at her he took out his gun and shot her between the eyes.

Then the Patrolman came across the road with his gun in his hand and looked at me.

He said, “Your mule was in such bad shape I had to shoot her. How are you feeling?”


So Stephany,Precious, Ladyjane, and Ana. How are you feeling?

Justa nother normal day in paradise!!

image This is a picture of some guy delivering gas to a gas station. It's not me. But it's exactly what I used to do when I got hurt two years ago. Hauling those hoses around to hook and unhook them is a lot of work. It was a good workout and I had lost about 50lbs when I worked there. One hose is for venting and the other one unloads the gas. Picture having four hoses hooked up that's what we used on a lot of the stops we did. I really wish I could still do this as I was getting in pretty good shape after only four months and the money was great. But..........

I've called a Workman's Compensation counselor that my social worker suggested, he suggested I contact Vesid.  He said he would mail me an application packet. I'm waiting for that to get here. Hopefully they can give me an aptitude test and direct me into a field of study that would fit me. I'm a cranky ole obstinate bastard but I don't think that transfers into today's job market.{Well maybe it does. I could do a early evening show on MSNBC}

Momma. Aka Cindy is quite the trouble maker. Check out her blog post from today here. It's kind of ridiculous but whatever... This publisher had nothing better to do than to pick on Cindy. Cindy responded much kinder than I would have. I would have words like "ass and "hole" in my response.

As you can see I just ain't got much going on in my life right now do I? Ok I did take Momma's car to Ziebart today to get an estimate on some scratch repairs and undercoating. While switching cars where she works we went to lunch. I made out pretty good. Cindy bought and I got to keep the change. Sweeet. I've got some pretty bad oxidizing going on with the paint job on my car so I may see if they can rub that out too. My car is a 1997 Dodge Intrepid with about 130,000 miles on it so I don't want to spend any money on a paint job but if Ziebart can get the oxidation out that would be good.

No news on what sex Josh and Adrianne's baby is yet. That info should come in a couple of weeks. I'll post it when I find out. Cindy had a cousin out in Michigan just give birth to twins. Just what Michigan needs a couple more people that will be looking for work. Steve {of Steve and Donna fame} is doing great after his colon surgery. Much better than they expected of him.

Tomorrow I hope to mow the lawn after dropping Cindy's car off at Ziebart. It really grows fast this time of year. I'm going to close with a whine. The Yankees are stinking up the joint. They lost again tonight.

Happy Mothers Day!!!

It's your special day Moms. Enjoy. It's 05:45 as I start this post. I've already called my mom. She's an early riser and I wanted to get her before she goes out gallivanting. She's 74 years old and is more active than I am. Little aches and pains are creeping up on her but she still manages to get out and walk a little every day.

Momma's still in bed sleeping. We went to bed last night at 10:00 pm. Cindy had a rough day at work this week and we closed it out with a trip to the zoo with the Lime Green Drama Queen yesterday. Here's a few pics from our foray.

100_2807 This is a couple wild Penguins that were wandering around the park loose. They look pretty friendly and an awful lot like Cindy and Courtney.

100_2865Here's Courtney chasing other kids away from the Monkey bars.

100_2860 And a final picture of The Lime Green Drama Queen carrying the weight of the world on her shoulders. As you can tell she's pretty camera shy. Not!!

100_2793 Ok,you wanted proof that I was there. Here's a picture of me resting a bit after we had walked all the way around the whole zoo. It had to be at least 1/2 mile around that whole thing. Let's just say I used a lot of the benches to get around it.
