Howdy, all. Had a great and long chat with Loree and Booper today. Fine folks. The BoopStud had the ablation thing, also, and says it made him feel better. I believe now I can feel the "better" coming on. I do know I can walk across the street to the mailbox and not have to hold onto the box itself for a while before coming back. I did hate that "just flat can't go anymore" feeling. I'd told my spoose if it was going to be that way from now on, I'd be praying for the "easy way out," because I don't see the sense in sitting around just waiting to die. As of today, I really do believe things are going in a better direction, and I am truly thankful to a Merciful Maker for that. I'm hoping to be given clearance to start driving again now so that I can get back to the gym and Kimbu can get back to a job. Things get rough financially with no help, and there are just too many things that need to be done around this place.

Oh, well...'bout time for my "early-to-bed" routine. Hasta manana en la manana.

Six for JoeLimo....So?

I only post on GB because it's something to do rather than sit around the house and stare at the walls. After the wife was killed in the accident life doesn't really mean much anymore and GB takes some time. I also like to follow the antics of some of the characters on this forum. If somebody wants to follow me around and post the same stations, who cares?

I think I'll have to get at least one new knee. This morning it was a real struggle to get to the bathroom. That'll kill some time. Went to the doc this morning but cancelled as soon as I got there because the only thing I heard was a bunch of old women coughing away, almost in unison. I don't neeed to catch something that will only make me cough my guts up. Kill me, I'm OK with that, but something that only makes me feel like ---- isn't for me.

Hello Doc!
I hope is does get better. And better. And I'm jealous of somebody who can go to bed at 9:50PM. 8:50 your time. I'm knot jealous of somebody who wakes up at 3AM. Unless it's to see how far you can pee. But why waste it when you can taste it?

Good afternoon Doc,

Hoping you feel MUCH better today. Hoping you no longer feel like you swallowed a watermelon whole. :>) As far as the point thing goes, the only thing they are good for is for gas cards and you and I and the other high point users have almost zero chance at one. Seems only the newbies get them lately. Yup, certain people have held their position for a long time and are sad to drop to a lower one. I am sure there has to be a way to obtain a cheap used old smart phone that will run the app on a local Wi-Fi connection that will work for those who really want to get all the points they can.

As far as a pissing contest goes,, how far can you pee and STILL spell your name right?

Happy Thursday! 61 degrees this morning. Evidence of rain overnight but pretty clear this morning. Got in a 1+ mile walk in shorts and a long sleeved t-shirt. It sure is nice to not have to bundled up! Spring is arriving!

MadDog - thanks!

I will call the GSU versus KSU softball game this afternoon. With the win over Georgia Tech, their record is now 22-7.

Off to continue the day.

Have a great day all!

I'm with you MadDog, I haven't posted prices since the days when I was Bonehomid, and that has been quite a few years, maybe a decade. I was posting in Detroit when there was only (6) people in the Detroit forum...

*yawn*..*gasp*....New 2019 C/K Silverado and Sierra GM pick-em up trucks are coming your way.

Later folks

Doc...glad you are feeling better buddy! Glad you are still here. You are right that this site is going down the toilet. The new stuff with the GB apps is not good. People are cut throating each other for the local app leadership board. People are posting wrong prices and some are even driving the interstates and posting behind others so they can get points. It's turned into a complete joke!

Grmoore....glad you had a great birthday buddy!

Howdy. Yep, after my 12-hour ordeal at Methodist Hospital yesterday, I do think I feel better. "They" say it'll be better and better for a while.

I do appreciate your concern and hope you're all okay.

Meanwhile, as far as Gas Buddy goes, I'm never again going to think much about points, recording gas prices, or anything else. Fact is, JuniorFan and I were talking about that today: Back in the times of "Going for distance: How far can you pee?" and stuff like that, this place was fun. Now? Overall, the site is pretty crappy. I spend more time now on Facebook, and sometimes I don't put up point one. None of it means anything anymore except the friendships --- and I won't go because of those....of you.

But right now I IS gotta go to bed. Good night.

I finally broke down and created a Twitter account. Only did it so that I could play in the Late Night With Seth Meyers Tournament of Things.

And I am getting ticked off with GasBuddy--I have not missed posting in almost 50 days, and have gotten the maximum of 1225 points each day, but I have fallen from #359 overall to #364 in less than a week. If that is because some people are getting extra points for using some stupid cell phone app, I am probably going to quit posting here.

Happy Wednesday! 55 degrees this morning.

Thanks for the birthday wishes. It was a great day!

Geez - yeah, not this time, lol. (It's all about the placement of the clause in the sentence and the comma) :)

The Panthers' softball team got the win over Georgia Tech 7-6 last night in a pitcher's duel until GSU opened up with 7 runs in the bottom of the 5th inning. GT answered with 4 more runs in the 6th to make the game interesting.

Off to start the day.

Have a great day all!

Wasn't expecting much from the cardio visit. Got lots more than expected: Dr. Jayaram scheduled me for a "TEE" to be done by a Dr. Alvarez at SIX IN THE MORNING at Methodist Hospital. Then, apparently IF the TEE is positively indicative, I am scheduled for the catheter ablation procedure at about two in the afternoon.

Hopefully, all will go well and I will be home in time for supper.

The TEE stands for "Transesophageal Echocardiogram." Which means they'll ram a Louisville Slugger down my throat, then make all sorts of pretty pictures of my heart...without interference from bones, etc.

Sounds like fun, huh? They say maybe two hours for the whole deal, with the procedure itself maybe taking half an hour at most....but that's just the TEE.

Then I get to sit around or lie around and wait 'til afternoon for the ablation --- if it happens. The way I have it figured is that if the TEE looks "bad," then Dr. Jayaram won't even bother with me. Then...again using my pessimistic outlook, even if the TEE looks okay, the run-up to the actual ablation could be so bad he'll decide it'd be a waste of time.

I'll pray it works out, though, and I hope you'll pray right along with me and maybe it will be a wonderful thing and I'll at least stop feeling like warmed-over dogshit most of the time. I have to tell you, though, I'm pretty discouraged, and "Whimpering Jim" --- the guy even I don't like --- is back.

Stick with me, anyway, though, please....I sure do love you...and God bless us every one.

Hi Sid, yes, I was reacting to something doc said about Jehovah's witnesses - also applies to 7th-day adventists. But do scroll down and read what he posted - it was much funnier than mine, and might even be true.
