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. ;)

Returned from CES on Saturday night with a vicious cold, which I've been fighting ever since. Currently pedal to the medal to get the presentation on CES that I do every year done in time.

tee, what was your final decision on Medicare? Parts A & B along with your private health care insurance? Marcus? GRIS what was the final outcome of the Medicare debacle you went through?

Morning guys....Cool this morning and headed to the upper 40s to low 50s.

Bob, you are correct, class 0f 73. Tommy, I don't have to do anything yet as I am covered under Rosies' insurance until she retires. Our Medicare guy is supposed to come by this month and we will get things squared away. But he has a plan that we qualify for that make the premiums set for life. Apparently not all qualify for the policy.

I have a massage scheduled for noon today... a reward for my work this past weekend.

I hope all of you have a great day.

wow.....a massage....... that sounds nice.......

Even though you are on a private insurance you still must sign up with Medicare at 65....you get 3 months before your birthday and 3 months after your birthday month. I did not do that because I did not know that and was and still am on my wife's health insurance plan.

At 66 I took Social Security and they automatically enroll you at that time if you are not already signed up. That is what I did not know is that it was automatic...... I'm more of a stick shift guy........

So the next question is when you going to take SS?

I'm having a great day today and I hope you will also Guru's.....

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.

I see the way they do retirees/older peeps as very unfair. My cousin in the nursing home is on medicaid and STILL has to shell out 187/mo for a 'supplement policy'. Medicaid supposedly pays all her room and board but she only gets $40/mo of her own money no matter what she has coming in. I write monthly checks to the home for just over a thousand. Ripoff from hell.
Just make sure whatever you get y'all get the policy that covers places like nursing homes and such.
Foggy again this morning but that cleared and gave way to just dreary. Warm though, 68 which has all of us afraid a tornado will drop out any moment.
My boss' kid is a Freshman at Harvard. He just emailed me to do a project for him. Seriously? I think I'll investigate gettin myself into there if they can do that crap and get by with it.

Well, the massage was good....not what Tommy was thinking, but good. Not much else got done. I straightened out the storage room in the basement and cleaned out a cabinet in the shop. Watching Barrett Jackson this evening.
