My bro is down here visiting. We went out Saturday night ... spur of the moment. He wanted to shoot some pool. So we went to try a new place. Parked in a parking lot behind all these bars and walked in the back door. Instead of going to the place we wanted to go to, we went to a death metal club, with live music, but we didn't realize until after we paid cover.

I was so not dressed for a death metal venue with a gray polo hoodie and a yellow lucky shirt with a German heraldry eagle on it. Everyone ... I mean everyone ... was all goth and wearing black. I stuck out like a sore thumb. It was so funny.

We stayed for a few beers anyway. Music sucked, tho.

Hi, Ang! I've been off-line a few days. I hope you get to go home as planned and that you get some respite from all of this for some time. I can't imagine how exhausted and "over it" you must be feeling right now. Sending hugs and positive thoughts!

Thank you so much.

I just showered (with non sexy assistance) and that helped me feel better.

That's a first step.

Are you allowed any booze at this point? Will you be able to see in the new year with a toast?

My 83 year old father had a knee replacement and has been in a nursing rehab center for the last 3 weeks. The center is having a new years party ( from 6-8,but still), but no booze. Even though it is not an old people's home per se there are a lot of stroke people, and long post surgical people and old people there.... just waiting

We are going to spring him for lunch and let hm have french fried onion rings ( with salt) and a cheeseburger from Hackney's

I am allowed to have booze, but (1) my pain reliever of choice right now is Tylenol (so no booze), and (2) I have zero desire to drink.

Damn meds! Eh, you're not missing much. You've done that all before, I'm sure.

rings?!?! we call it the onion loaf, and leave out the adjective "glistening"... we had fun one time trying to explain it to SIL when my gramma & her sibs took us there. SIL's expression was priceless when she first saw it...

good luck with your adventure tomorrow!

You know what's ironic about that ship trapped in ice in Antarctica? They went there to prove sea ice is disappearing due to global warming.

Thanks, tonka.

Tonight I helped a pug owner friend on FB with a health question about her pug, and thought of you.
