My patience is running thin. Bird is screaming. Have to run errands for Sue and do some of my own stuff. Leaving tomorrow for the Keys.

Up at 04:00. Surgery went well. Sue's still numb from the block. I'm numb from getting up at 04:00.

Tommy..... the pig story....... made me laugh....... just saying....



But wait .... There's more ...... This morning I was working out in the yard. Next thing I know the big pig had head butted her way out of the fence gate and resumed the chasing and biting the groggy pig. I was working on making a mud pit so they could roll around to protect their sensitive skin as it was recommended by the vet. I had an occasionally muddy area in the yard so I did it there. I had a soft rake nearby so I chased the big one away with the rake. It did it a couple more times then went back into the pen area. I had been working on the gate already so I locked her back in.



Like I don't have enough to do already.


I'm not getting any SS money. I never bothered to qualify because I have a government pension and they offset your pension when you qualify for SS. I'll keep my private insurance and sign up for A & B . I have prescription drug coverage through them. Sue is younger than I so I have to keep it so we are both covered but supposedly they will give me a partial rebate because I will be on Medicare. We'll see.

Another crazy day in the life of Tommy-T-Bone. One of the pigs had a bad wound on her neck so we called in a vet. Vet was supposed to come around 11:00 AM but did get there at 03:00 in the afternoon. Tough to find a vet that will come to the house AND work on a pig. Knocked the pig out. (Catching them is always fun so they can give them the anesthetic.) Had to give her a second shot because she wasn't completely out. He then inspected the wound and declared it a tumor. Not much to do to treat her as it would involve procedures that would involve human like surgery at an uninsured expense. $$$$. The pig was out for a couple hours then started to come to. She was kicking and flailing all over the pen but couldn't get on her feet. This went on and off for about an hour. She finally rolled onto her belly but couldn't stand up. Awhile later she got up but walked like a drunken sailor. Around this time the second pig started pounding on the pen gate trying to get in. After a little while we thought we would let the second pig in. Thought it just wanted to go to her shelter and go to sleep. Nope. It starts slamming and head butting the pig that was still half whitted. Pig screaming ensued as she tried to get away from the aggressor and she injured her nose on the chain link fence trying to get away. After a couple minutes we got them separated again.This time the big girl was in the pen and the other pig was in the back yard. She wobbled to a tree they normally lay under in the yard and plopped down. We monitored her over the next couple of hours before we went to bed. This morning she is lying against the house still obviously groggy from the anesthetic. Today she can get some food and water and I'll try to get things to return to normal. This is yet another typical example of why I am never bored. ;)

Thanks for sharing your experiences on dental hygiene guys. I think we were all born before flossing became the norm. I floss occasionally with them pic things. Especially the week before I go to the hygienist.

Tom, you are an inspiration. Keep busting your ass. Makes me feel guilty for underachieving and I get more done. Being raised a Catholic, I can't stand guilt. Paid the bills for the month. Now I have to make a new list of chores as I've done many of them I set out to do last year. This year leaves me plenty to do with stuff that gets carried over to the new list year after year. How do you eat an elephant? One bite at a time.

Yard day. Supposed to be a hot one for Florida winter. Mid 80's. Of course, it's a shorts and t-shirt day. It's been a mild winter to date. No snow but then, we rarely have snow. A few flakes every 40 or 50 years.

Well I never got the fuel gauge to work right on the boat. I filled up the tank most of the way so I know I have enough for several short trips. Temp gauge is not working either. All i have to do is monitor the outflow. If it starts steaming , I'm overheating. The bow light is also out of action but I have an emergency battery operated back up. I won't be night fishing anyway. Engine works , steering works, radio's work. I'm going to have to call a boat mechanic and replace my gauges and fix whatever ails it. Shouldn't be a bank breaker since most of the key systems work. LOL Now. I have to see how much fishing Sue wants to do two days out of major foot surgery. I was going to leave the boat home ... but NooOooooooo. We have to bring the boat. "What sense is it to have a boat if you're not gonna use it." she says. My friend has a boat in the water there as well and always wants us to go fishing with him. Keys vacation in one week. Only four things to do in the Keys. Fishing, eating, f@(%ing and drinking ... and I don't drink.

Gurus are always welcome. I only let people drive the cars that can afford to replace them . ;) Party? Bring whatever you wish to eat and drink. I'll fire up the fire pit.



Brad methinks would be highly proud of his Vikings accomplishment this year. BillH would have thought it a waste of time. Thinking of Andy Minnich as well. Andy owned the red and white Corvette in the C5 pic above in the Guru welcome page . Of course that is BillH's 67 in the olden days when it ran.

Windy, partly cloudy. My get up and go got up and went yesterday. Stayed inside most of the day. Did get most of the bills paid though and made dinner. I'll try to nudge a little energy into forward motion on the boat today. Sue wants me to join her later today to go stake a tree in Miami. Not too labor intensive but not finding a lot of joy in it either.
Sue went to get a haircut in one of her usual places last night. Her regular stylist had left early. They recommended a young lady there do it. Sue sat in the chair and told the girl take about 1/2" off the side. She no speaky da Engleesh so one of the other stylists told her what Sue wanted. First cut was too deep. Sue: "Whoa. What are you doing?" She looks to the mirror for this cutters license. "Where is this girls certificate?" "She doesn't have one." came the response. "Why would you have someone who is not licensed cutting hair here?". It's a Hair Cuttery shop. Sue gets up and out of the chair. Most of the hair shops are now closed because it's after 07:00PM. She goes to Walmart where there is a shop still open. The young lady there rescued Sue's haircut and brought into something that looked pretty good. .... It only goes to show. It's always sumthin.

Andy, with unemployment being at a low and high demand for workers I hope you are able to find a position that satisfies your wants, needs and income requirements. Your background and employment history can only be an asset.


Worked on the boat all day yesterday. Lots of electrical stuff didn't work so I troubleshot a number of them and many of them working again. The bow light, temp gauge and fuel gauge need further attention. Siphoned off the water and bad fuel from the bottom of the tank. Changed the water separator/filter. Battery didn't seem to have enough oomph so I went and bought a new one. The old battery tested OK but drew down too quickly. It was 3 years old. Went to start the boat and the starter was hanging up. Hit the pinion with some penetrating oil and lubricant. It improved but still sticking a little. Got the boat started and the engine sounded pretty good. Steering was stiff so I attacked the critical with more penetrating oil and lubricant. Oiled up all the locks, cables, cable, rollers and hitch. If I could get the temp and fuel gauges working and starter pinion moving freely I'b be happy. It's almost a running boat again

Nice site. We have local shops that provide product. I just haven't gone in yet. they also have recommended doctors I believe. Obviously I haven't pursued it. My neighbor has had his card for months. I don't believe I would have any problems qualifying. I could have applied for VA disability but never did. Pride I guess. I figure other people earned it more than me. I suffered a back injury when I was in the service and it was service connected. Fought my way through everything all my life without relying on anyone else. Like I said. It was pride. LOL. Now I could kick myself in the ass. I'm going to be 65 so with medicare and private insurance all my medical needs will be met. I can still apply to the VA.

Matt, that's all I want is something to ease the pain. Right now staying busy helps but then comes the end of the day and the cycle repeats. Work till I hurt. Relax and sleep. Work stiff till I don't hurt then quit when I hurt. Sometimes I have to work while I I hurt. Believe me. Nobody cares. Like Sue says, "If I stay busy I don't hurt as much. Keeps your mind off the pain." Vicious cycle.

If I wasn't so busy I would try the cannabis sativa therapy recommendations. Too much to do all the time so it's not really an option. I know it works well in promoting naps and stimulating the desire to eat healthier foods like ice cream and Oreo cookies. Also the driving bass from music selections acts as a gentle massage. LOL A friend gave me a couple of joints. That's about a years supply for me.

Hi guys. I got to sleep the the crack of 08:00. I like when that happens. Of course I had to shut the bedroom door to keep the waking crew from getting a hold of me. (dogs) Yesterday I did some yard stuff. Cut down a couple of small trees. Trimmed some bushes. Today is vehicle day and I'm going to try and start the boat. To do that I have to draw whatever water has accumulated in the gas tank before I can do anything. It should start. It has in the past. We shall see. I want to make the cars pretty again so that means I probably need 2 days to do everything right. I'd like to do an engine bay detail on the on the 2 Vettes. We'll see what my good friend Arthur Rightus has to say about that. All the bending and stretching usually has me looking like a guy from a Doan's Pills advertisment.

it's a wonderful day in the neighborhood.


There banging away on the roof of the new house being built closest to me. The noise level will be suppressed some when this one is done. Then they'll have only 3 more left to build and the project will be complete with 19 new homes. Most of the people moving in are middle aged (35-55) with a couple of children and a dog. I'm not complaining too much. It could be so much worse for my taste. I could live in th city or an apartment complex, God forbid.

Slow start but falling back into my routine .... until .... Sis called and is coming down with BIL and great nephew for a surprise visit (for Susan). What I had planned is now put on the back burner. Move the stuff from the back burner to the will call shelf. Looking forward to my Alaska cruise in May . Sis and BIL are joining us and perhaps our neighbors. We shall see. The trip costs around $3200 for 2. Not too bad. I have a hundred different free cruises we could take right now including several in Europe, some Panama Canal and a host of others. I need to hit the lottery so I would have enough money to gamble. Life is good.

Short cruise has ended. Left on Monday. Back on Friday. Got off the ship by 08:30 and was home by 09:30. Sue was back to work by 10:30. I'm putting the luggage away and doing laundry plus associated return tasks. New Years Eve was great on the cruise. The whole casino shut down around 10 till and we all watched the countdown on TV. Afterward we went back to the poker table and continued in the revelry. Knew some of the casino staff from previous cruises. We did alright the first couple of days then went into a slide spiraling downward. Stayed within budget so all is good. pain in the ass going through Customs with cigarettes. They always make a big deal about it. If you declare it they are supposed to charge a tax of $10 per carton for anything over one carton. It's a bother for most of them so they usually just let you pass and usually go on about you are only allowed one carton per person. Ya, one carton and pay the tax for any additional. I feel like throwing the cartons overboard as sort of a tax rebellion but that would only be hurting my wallet. On the ship they want to sell you duty free stuff. On land they want to bitch about you buying it because they're supposed to collect the duty on any over some minimal amount they allow. Vulcan bullspit. All these laws pushed through by corporate America to protect their profits and of course the government can't help but collect a nice sin tax. We now return you to your regularly scheduled program. Hah. The new year has hardly begun and I've got my briefs in a twist already.

The wife of a friend that recently passed away invited Sue over to see if she would the like the pool table in the garage. It was a regulation pocket table custom built. The sons had no interest in any of their father's belongings. One of the sons that Sue has known since childhood does not care much for Susan. While Sue was at the house the table was disassembled. The one son said don't expect any help from us loading it. It weighed quite a bit. In spite that son took a sledgehammer to the slate shattering it making the table virtually useless. He went around breaking other stuff as well insuring no one would take anything. This supposedly religious Jew dumped his father's yarmulkes on the floor walking over them. The woman that invited Sue over sat there crying feeling bad that she had asked Sue over only to experience this foolishness. Sue calmed her and told her that it's alright and not to worry. Sue left soon after to meet us for a scheduled family brunch.

If anybody found a loose bolt lying around it appears we have found the nut.

I reminded Sue that this potential acquisition exceeded the recently repeated request that she bring nothing home over 30 lbs or bigger than a medium box. I told her if we really want a pool table we'll get one. We've already turned several down. ;) The beat goes on .......

Beautiful family pic, GRIS. I'm not currently drinking but a beverage of that caliber would certainly garner my attention. Just my attention. I'm still not drinking. LOL

It seemed as Christmas came early this year so it only seemed right that I take everything down early this year. Everything has been taken down, boxed and stacked neatly in the shed for whomever may have the pleasure of dragging it out and putting it out again next year. I have 2 Hanukkah displays out front. They will come down tomorrow since Hanukkah isn't over yet. Took me two days to put it up and one to take down. I was on a mission. It took everything I had energy wise to get it all done but it's history now. Today I break out the suitcases and pack, plus get all the needed documents together. Sue has foot surgery coming up on the January 16th. Her eye has not even fully healed yet. On the 18th of Jan. we are slated to go to the Keys for a week. Not looking forward to more nursing duties but it's not exactly like I have a choice. That is also 2+ hours from Miami if I have to make a trip to her doctors. I'm sure we will because they will have to remove the dressing. Near the end of the Keys week Sue has another Garden Club show in Marathon Florida. Sue will go home Thursday and have the guys load the truck. Stay home overnight. Drive down and set up the show Friday morning. Come back to the resort for the rest of Friday. Saturday morning she will go to the show and I will drive home and unpack everything we brought. After all that I think I will look for a place to sit a spell.

Tee, I will continue to work also just on my own stuff for the most part. ( I'm a realist, hence the disclaimer. )

Indeed Marcus. Each day is a blessing. How does one get old? One day at a time. It won't be till I'm dead and gone that I will figure out how meaningful or meaningless a life I have had. I have filled it with fluff to mask the realities of this world. I live in a fantasy. I don't want to know too much about what surrounds me. Instead let me slip into my world surrounded but material things I have deemed important. I live in comfort. My soul will stand in judgement. It's a good thing that Jesus has washed away my sins because methinks I would be in a serious world of hurt.

G'mornin.

Went out to a family breakfast at Havana Harry's yesterday. Around 18 of us. Set a bunch of tables together. Good eats. My nephew (brother's son) stopped in with his mom and step dad. We spent the day together. He offered me my brother's 87 Corvette to restore. Alas, I reluctantly turned him down. I paused but explained I have many cars that I can barely keep up with and don't have the time or the funds to dedicate to a new project. Sue was rather surprised at my decision. I told Brendan he pretty much had three choices. One, do nothing and just leave it in the garage. Two, sell it for short money because of it's condition. Or three, spend a few thousand bucks on it and get it road worthy and drive it around in the summertime. I've been telling everybody I'm slowing down. Not taking on any new projects. Just finishing up what I have and and going into a maintenance mode. Sue has been leaving me alone pretty well with fewer requests. (Except for the occasional bomb she drops on me.) She even repeated my saying to her no new purchases except for small stuff, and we don't even need them. 65 gets closer and closer and I'm making a transition. That's not to say that I won't be busy. "I have something to do everyday for the rest of my life." "Never bored." That being said. I'm going out and taking down all the Christmas stuff. Have to pack and get ready to cruise on Monday. .......... "Never bored".


One day I want to be like GRIS.

John. My sincere sympathy to you and your family for the loss of your brother.


Christmas party went as planned, sort of. The first family came around 01:00. People trickled in to a peak around 03:00 to 04:30. People trickled out till around after 08:00 PM. So much for the 12:00 to 05:00 party. The food selection was not as large as years past but the quality surpassed every year that we've held it. Chicken, kosher turkey, pork loin, beef brisket pork shoulder and salmon were the meat selections, salad, sweet potato, green bean casserole, a yellow pepper and squash dish, coconut rice, corn bread with corn kernels and more. Desserts assorted pies, and cookies. Probably around 50 showed up. All went well. Minimal left overs.

Well we had 83 but a few have dropped out and some won't show. Then again, some extras may come. I have seating outside for 69 set up. More places to sit inside and several benches that I'm not counting. Coolers are already filled and icing down. My outside work is almost done. Tomorrow set up some games The cars are dirty I have some topiary animals that need to be trimmed. If I don't get to it, Oh well. Have to vacuum and mop the floors. Sue was at the hospital and is on her way home. Her aunt had a stroke. Not too good. Lower paralysis and her right side. Roasts are slow cooking in the oven. There should be plenty of food. Some of our regular guests passed this year. They will be missed at the festivities. Have a wonderful Christmas Eve and Christmas Day. God bless. Stop in if you're in the neighborhood.
