I'm often left to wonder what forces executed all the twists and turns that brought Americans to the sad state we are in today. Certainly it couldn't be the hippies with their disdain for the norm and their message of "Sex, drugs and Rock and Roll". Nor their predecessors the hot rodders or nomad motorcyclists that cast their cares to the wind. Disco queens? Big haired metal fans? The Left Coasters and the Seattle sound? Perhaps the donners of the rainbow flag? Maybe all of them combined. It is not for the lack of money. Even some of the poorest wear the latest styles and carry the latest tech. Maybe it's the materialists drive for more, more, more. Seems we can never have enough. Maybe it's fools like me that ask why instead of living life with blinders on focused in a single direction. ..... He ain't heavy .... He's my brother.... So on we go .....

Sciatica . LOL You mean the pain that runs down both legs emanating from a stiff lower back area. Ben Gay is my friend and a good dose of ibuprofen several times a day. I too need to go to a spinal clinic but I think it will be useless. They will send me for physical therapy for several months to be released to do the exercises on my own. Of course I won't do them and the pain will return. I would prefer a good strong opioid to just mask the pain. Docs don't want to do that anymore. Pressure from the feds. I've been using CBD cream. Might as well just use a placebo. Ben Gay extra strength. Warm and soothing relief for an hour or two.


Working in the yard today. 8 backpacks of a Roundup substitute /water . Getting ready to break out the rider. 2 guys working the yard today with me. See ya .......

Washed the fleet a couple of days ago. Talked myself into driving the 90 around for a bit. Glad I did. So much fun running through the gears listening to some rock and roll at an elevated volume. Not loud enough that I couldn't hear the exhaust bellow as I ran gears 1-5. Only brief stints in 5 as I was running around mostly residential roads. She runs as good as she ever did. My main repair issue I still haven't addressed is the headlamp motors. I don't do much night driving anymore so I haven't really pushed myself to fix it. Have the manual override option so that's another excuse I often use to delay wrenching time. Anyway, all but the 928 are roadworthy.


MIL is improving and not complaining much about pain. She has started walking. Feeding tube has been removed. The doctors have never performed a surgery on someone with as much damage as she had. Most of it was brought to light when they opened her up. They said she was within days of dying. Sue's cousin Josh is the one that got the doctors to consider the surgery so kudos to him for making an effort and placing the calls.


Sunny and hot is the forecast. Sounds about right for August. If only Covid would up and disappear. It would be nice to return to normal. At least a Tommy-T type of normal.

An acquaintance of mine's Corvette. One of the drawbacks of Corvette ownership. Basically you should avoid hitting anything. This is what happened when he ran into a flying bird. (Only kidding) I don't know the details but does it matter?

Trump or Biden ...... I'm gonna go play kick the can. Given the present circumstances I cannot see voting Democrat.


I re-booked my flights and hotel for May of next year. Re-booked the same hotel in Seattle. I had an airline credit for my cancelled flights and when I tried to use it up I found I could fly coach out and fly First Class home. I said heck with it an opted for First Class all the way. It's only money. Right? Non stop Ft Lauderdale to Seattle and back. A little over 6 hours each way. Not bad.

Sue just got a big order for the Naval Station beach in Key West. Also the people who want Sue to work on a park told Sue to get ready. They are one last commission meeting from approval. They had a few things to work out with the city before they get the go ahead. Friggin politics in this town are ridiculous. Everything is so damned complicated. The company wants to develop land in the Homestead Park of Commerce that has been sitting vacant for 30 years. Ready to spend millions developing a disaster related vehicle storage facility. Basically a huge walled parking lot. One parcel they will convert to a park at their expense. That's where Sue's part comes in. She'd get the landscape installation contract. $$$$. Means I'd end up making a lot of deliveries. For the big bucks I'll make time in my busy schedule. Looks like I'll be making a ride to Key West as well.

My first friend's birthday is today. We met when I was 4. 61 years later we still exchange happy birthday wishes. Every time it brings back happy childhood memories.

Gray and gloomy still. The tail of Isiais carries more moisture to us. Most plant life and the lawn seem to approve.

Not watching any sports of late. I'm tired at mid day. I'm really thinking I have only one choice. Restart my day a little later. Went with Sue to a doctors appointment this morning. Thought she was going to need me to drive but she did not. A procedure that was supposed to be done this morning is rescheduled for a later unknown date. She was kind of pissed because she says she could have stayed in Philly a few more days. I mailed a suitcase full of clothes to FIL this morning to his hotel. MIL is supposed to have some tubes pulled today and sent to another room on a different floor. She be out of the ICU. Later ....

Ya, Bob. Life seems to come in spurts. When you get comfortable it's time to watch out. I've learned to ride the waves and try to stay on my feet. I've got something to look forward to. The pendulum swings both ways. I remember saying to myself earlier this year when all was going too well. I wonder what is lurking. It's been going well for too long.

That's creative, Andy. Not my cup of tea but OK on someone else's ride. I'd do both sides with girls dressed in bikinies. The lights being the top. They could make butt cheeks as well. Over Corvette write ** Kiss My **.

Hello.Sue should be at the airport right now. Boarding is in less than an hour. I'll pick her up around 01:30 if she is on time. The weather from Isaias is past me for the most part. We have worse regular days but that is because the storm stayed over the Bahamas. No complaint from me. With all the little stuff going on in my life, later today might be a good time for me to look for something I can break. Hopefully something I won't miss. Should be something not to easy but not to hard as that removes the satisfaction of breakage. And small enough to fit in the trash can.

As luck would have it I'm on the western side of Isiais. Occasional rain and I can actually see the bands run through. I've seen this many times. This morning I looked out the front door and I had the bluest cloudless skies. I went out the back door and it was covered in gray skies. This tells me much about life. It's all about which door you open. Sue should be home tomorrow. MIL is limited to 1 visitor a day for 1 hour. FIL is staying so he gave up his visit to Sue's cousin yesterday. Her cousin flew home today Sue is going in for an hour today. Sue was able to negotiate a suite for a month for FIL. Got it at a better rate than small furnished apartment for a month. I'm feeling like a zoo keeper between the nursery animals and home critters. I have plenty to do but I'm not opening the nursery to sales. Gate is closed till Sue gets back. Years ago I had her change it to appointment only (or if the gate is open). I don't want to work the nursery anymore except for an occasional delivery, pick up, feed the animals or repairs as needed. That still gets me over there more than I care to be. .... End of chapter ...... Have a great day everyone.

Hello everyone. The good news is she survived the surgery. Doctors said it was worse than they anticipated. They got everything done they wanted to do and more. She is responding to simple commands and still on a ventilator. So she is over the first major hurdle but still in a danger zone as they stabilize her with medication and eventually work to taking her off the ventilator. So far so good. Thanks for the well wishes and prayers. She's a lucky lady. Docs said if she didn't have the surgery she would have been lucky o last two weeks. Maybe she'll get to stick around awhile longer now.

Now I'm prepping for Tropical Storm Isaias Pronounced Iz-ah-ee-as. I'm pretty well buttoned up but have to get some things off the floor in the back sheds in case of flooding. Plus place a blocks around the pond coping to keep the fish in the pond. 2020 is definitely up there with a year I will choose to forget. Good thing I'm a fairly healthy senior citizen.

MIL started surgery at 03:30 PM Estimated 8 hour surgery with a team of four doctors. Talked with Sue about an hour ago. She's climbing the walls in the hotel room. FIL and cousin are just sitting in their rooms not doing anything. FIL is probably fiddling with his phone and cousin is probably dealing with family or business matters. Sue went to Betsy Ross' house. She wanted to go to a nearby restaurant but she said the place was packed. She said she doesn't want to just sit and watch TV. I guess she only does that with me at home. Well, I'm waiting for the word. I'll let y'all know when I know something.

YA! What everybody says!

I've been kind of mellow. Now I'm tired and drinking a cup of coffee to recharge my batteries. I must have some off brand batteries because they don't last like they used to. Waiting for word on MIL. Docs said 80% chance she'll survive. Hoping for the best. Send out a prayer blast for her.

I laid down to take a nap. Just dozing off and .... Ring .... Ring..... I usually rent from Hertz but they held back $50 from my Covid rental that I cancelled in April so I reserved from Dollar Rent a Car. The first car had a gouge down the hood. They kept bringing f'd up cars. Sue was looking at the 5th car they brought her. It has a big chip on the driver door. I told he to take pics. I told her if she's not happy get her money back and go to another company. Waiting for the follow up call to see if she took one of theirs. Dollar at PHL Airport. Hertz was about $70 more for the week. I never , ever had a problem with Hertz cars. Well she took one and marked all the things wrong with the body on a paper at the office. Next up. The hotel room. Hopefully that will transition smoothly. She's going to the Sheraton Philadelphia University City Hotel. Seems I can never sneak in a good nap these days. Always too much $#!+ going on. Anger has always been my enemy. It always seems to find me.

G'mornin.

Dropped Sue off at the airport at At 06:30 this morning. Did the round trip to the airport in an hour and a half which is really great time. No traffic to speak of. Coming back the traffic was all going the other way to Miami and was already starting a few back ups. Overall traffic here has been decent with the Covid and the kids being out of school. I get to feed all the critters both at home and at the nursery. I'm batching it til Sunday afternoon. The office is closed unless a big customer comes and Sue calls me to go over. In the olden days I would have opened and stayed there while she was gone but .... I try to be retired when possible. Still I keep busy most days. I have plenty to do.

MIL and FIL met with the doctors yesterday. Wednesday is the target surgery day. They have to open her up. With this surgery that means cutting the sternum and spreading the rib cage for access. My mom had that done when she was 68. After that surgery she said "Do not let them ever do that again."That reflects how much pain she endured in recovering from the surgery. Survived my first week without cigarettes. I think of my mentors telling me how they quit and of course our good friend Brad. Then I feel my lungs breathing and I say to myself "Does that feel good to you? Do you want to breathe when you get older." That and a chew of nicotine gum has been pulling me through. Having quit drinking years ago I know the discipline you MUST apply if you hope to succeed. If I succeed in quitting cigarettes I will then be without sin and apply for sainthood in one God fearing organization or another.

Stopped into the casino last night after dropping off Sue's cousins Tesla. LOL Sue was saying how do you start this thing? How do you turn it off? Where does the charge plug go? Anyway, we dropped a couple of hundred each into the machines over a couple of hours. We were getting ready to leave and Sue and I decided to play the last $40 for the night together. We got down to the last few pulls when, Ding, ding, ding, ding, ding. Thank you. Thank you very much.

I'D SAY THAT IS THE RIGHT CHOICE.




ROMMEL THE DESERT FOX DEFINED A BOLD OPERATION AS ONE YOU MIGHT NOT WIN, BUT FROM WHICH YOU COULD RECOVER.
A GAMBLE WAS AN OPERATION YOU MIGHT NOT WIN AND FROM WHICH YOU COULD NOT RECOVER.

A GAMBLE IS JUSTIFIED IN A NO WIN SITUATION.

The 91 used to scare me sometimes when I booted it doing around 30. That's the supercharged 383 stroker. She is not as fast now as when I first got her. I'm not gonna chase it.

John, the Testarossa was one of my favorites in the 80's. I even priced them at several different times since. Still happy with my 83 911 though.

MIL is resting comfortably with 24 hour nursing. A radiologist is pouring over her scans to see what might be able to be done. Invasive surgery is out of the question. Going up through the groin with a team of surgeons to repair the affected area is whats on the table. (That doesn't sound right.) Uncle and cousin rescheduled flights till tomorrow. That gives me today to pull our home and yard together enough to accept visitors. As you know I'm always running behind. Sue is walking a little now. She does too much and I tell her so. I just ask her "Why?" She doesn't let anything stop her. I told her she was stubborn. I don't know why but she never bounces anything off me. (Probably because I would say no or offer alternate possibilities.) She has some payback coming in the arena. One day I'll just do something without marital consultation. And when she questions me I'll just do this. or this

MIL had another stroke. Her brother is flying in to stay with us. Doctors looking at what they might be able to do but not looking good. I quit smoking on Monday. 2 days in and a mountain of stress. I'm holding out but this is not making it any easier. I'm irritable as hell. Chewing the Nicotine gum as needed Two X's on the calendar. Only 178 left to go. Rigginfriggin sassafrasson shidilbop. Oh ya, the browsers crashed on my home computer. I'm using my ancient laptop.

MIL not going home. Looks like surgery is the best of 2 options. Couple of days to pull everything together the off to the OR. Sue and I each have the Power of Attorney to act in each other's behalf should one be unable to act for themselves. If we have a shot at a survivable outcome we'll take it. If it's a lay and linger situation, out go the lights. Mom has a shot at a beneficial outcome so we're all saying do the surgery. We shall see what we shall see.

Too much to do and back ups occurring. Sunday, my birthday, my MIL and FIL insisted on coming by to wish me Happy Birthday. A friend also stopped by. All practicing mask. social distancing and hand washing as well as no unnecessary outside contact so we felt safe together. MIL has not been feeling well but wanted to come by anyway. As we sat her at the table, she was in the chair. Next thing I know ... BOOM . She's out cold and on the floor. We revive her, get her to a lounge chair and sit her down. She says she has to go to the bathroom so we help her up. Half way to the bathroom her legs go out from under her but three of us around her kept her from going down. Time to call 911. They came and checked her out. Vitals were good. She again said she had to go to the bathroom. Fire rescue started to help her to the bathroom and she starts to go down again. The team the says "Nope, she has to go to the hospital." She is doing better and will be released today. Fluid around her lungs and heart are causing the problem. Have to try and get rid of the fluid build up. Come Monday Sue has an 08:30 Doctors appointment. Doctor shows up at 09:30. Sue has an appointment for 09:30 just up the street from the first doctor and that gets that pushed back. We get to the second appointment around 10:00. Sue gets called in around 11:45 and is under their care till around 01:00. Got back to Homestead around 02:00. We left for Miami around 07:30 so Monday is pretty well toast. (I saw no other option other than to take a nap) Got up around 05:00 PM Today I slept in trying to reboot my strength. Nothing other than whatever I do is on the schedule today. I really need to get a few things done today. Especially get all the insurance and registrations into all the vehicles. That's to priority. I've only been sitting on them for a month. .... Have a great day everyone.

I finally got my father to get some air conditioning for my parent's house by reminding him that AC was one of the reasons the Navy won the war in the Pacific.

Now that is a creative approach. Soon he'll wonder why he didn't think of that earlier.


I remember the days of sleeping in the attic bedroom with the electric fan blowing on high. Battling to fall asleep so I could escape the oppressive heat. I didn't have air conditioning on a regular basis until I went into the service. It was all down hill from there. Now I can be in A/C everywhere but outdoors.

Not sure weather I should post this. The rain in Spain is mainly over South Florida. I understand now why the red, red robin was bob, bob, bobbin along. Did a pick up and then a bank run for the nursery. Sue cut the grass at the nursery even though I just cut it a few days ago. She's got a vacuum pump on her left foot and a battery pack she has to lug around. I let her know I was none too pleased with her cutting grass. She said she kept the foot raised. Cough, cough, (bullshit). I told her no wonder the damned wound won't heal. She can be a real pain in the ass but that's not anything I didn't know 36 years ago. 36th wedding anniversary coming up in a few weeks.

Doing something wrong is still doing something. It's a learning experience. I know. I'm smart like that.

Tom should know. With wood sometimes you can do something wrong. With a little customization you can make it look right.


More to do than I have time for. It's a little drizzly today. So, will I do this or will I do that. We'll see how the day unfolds. Hopefully I won't hear any phones ringing.



I walked out to my back patio as I do every morning. Schatzie and Snoopy walked out with me. Schatz ran over to the patio door and started aggressively barking backed up by Snoopy. Two dogs I've never seen before must have snuck in under the back fence. They ran toward the exit when they heard the barking. Medium sized Bull mixes so I'll take my commando knife out with me when I go inspecting the fence line. Thanks Schatzie.

Looking to the future of this great country I see B'da who? hairy legs, back in the 30's, verses. America was great just a few short months ago. Then came China. China is to blame. And WHO? Yes WHO. We are getting better everyday. Moving forward. Removing funding for WHO. Yes WHO. When? Now.

Over half the year gone which is great news for a South Floridian. Closer to a vaccine which I will welcome. I don't like taking vaccines. I haven't had a flu shot in I don't know how many years. Haven't taken the shingles or pneumonia vaccines. I want to but seem to avoid them. My overall health is OK. I actually look pretty good for my age compared to some. (If I do say so myself.) My main issue is my aching back. Signing up for medicare very soon. Thinking on doing a full court press on my health concerns. Prostate exam, colonoscopy, chest x-ray. It's been over a decade since I had the first two. Over 5 years for the chest x-ray. I like to credit my decent health with my ability to stay out of the doctor's office. Speaking of doctor's office .... I'm taking Sue to an appointment this afternoon where they will torture her with vacuum therapy. They are going to try and gradually clear and suck the tissue in her foot higher to promote new growth behind it. Later, after multiple treatments they will take a skin patch from her stomach and close the wound. And she'll have fun, fun, fun till her daddy takes the T-Bird away. There you have it. An update of this, that and the other thing. Enjoy your day. If you don't someone else will.
