Friend will be calling me at 10:30 p.m. "Ha! Darlene is foaming at the mouth over what you said to her! My mom loves what you posted!"
I love it!

I am FB friends with a friend's brother. We haven't met IRL, but I have spoken with him on the phone a few times (he is one of my poll clerks). He is a smartass and likes to talk smack about my football teams. I have gotten in some rather heated (for me) discussions with him and his friends, both on his wall and mine. My husband and father think it is the strangest thing that a virtual stranger gets me so riled up during football games.

He tolerates you guys :) when I am away from here too long, my husband asks me to get back on Topix to sort things out in my head so I stop bugging him.

I don't usually laugh or yell out loud when I am on Topix. This guy knows how to push my buttons. You'd like him, though. He's a very conservative Giants fan.

Not that I think Race is normal for walking around his house carrying, but what does elderly/not elderly have to do with anything? Bullets is bullets. No age discrimination.

I get offers to join AARP. But what does that have to do with anything? It was a crime committed on a person in their own home (and even NY stipulated that a person on their porch is in their home)

I'm home (I wrenched my back Tuesday night, was home all day yesterday to rest and ice it, which made a huge difference, and I worked only half a day today).

and I'm watching the awesome classic Jumpin' Jack Flash with Whoopie Golderg!

No sense of humor around here. The title of the article, "Elderly man shot and robbed at home".

And now that I think about it, the elderly are targetted for crime such as mugging and burglary.

Sorry, did not get the humorous implication.
Yes the elderly are targeted for crimes, so are the not so elderly, women, children, banks and gas stations.

Thats my point, crime happens everywhere, "Even" in your own home.

No fun involved with my back, sorry to say.

But being vigilant about icing it every 60-90 minutes yesterday, starting at 4:30 a.m., has paid off and while I'm store and moving slowly, it's MUCH better. I am thrilled with the progress. I'm at least 50% better, was last night. nick called me before bed, and I got up to answer the phone and realized I'd gotten up without having to use my h ands/arms to help get me up.

Is anyone else loving these Geico ads with Mtumbo? Nick told me he had a rep for being something of a dick on the court, which makes me like the commercials more.

That seems pretty normal. Once in the morning. Once when you get home. Once before bed.

We have a dog door, so I don't always keep track of when she goes in and out. Peeing that often I can see. The other... The clean-up seemed to take forever.
