Good afternoon, my beauty ... sorry been so long getting back to YOU! Seems we've all been too busy ... Hope R's back has been on the mend ... seems once we've been injured it's so easy to get injured again ... AGE HAPPENS and it bytes doesn't it ... we're not as young as we once were and therefore, age happens! >>big sigh<< getting ready for my trip tomorrow and be back next Saturday so will be thinking of yall ... I'll be checking in on my laptop now and again ... Yall have a nice afternoon and pace yourselves ... Take care of yourself and of each other ... Lovely photo of your day on his birthday ... Love you,mean it! FC <3 ...
Well you have a fun and safe trip, please! I saw it said recently not to complain about aging, as it is a privilege denied to many...and I heartily agree.
Ya, my dad is becoming the cutest little old man! He can be very delightful. He had a great b-day, went to a Notre Dame game Sat. with a SIL and his grandsons, and my brother took him to the PGA here at Crooked Stick on Sunday. Hubby and I took them out to dinner last night. And his party is next weekend, lol.
Have a day as lovely as you are! <3

Yoohoo. I'm here. Still got the toe but the metalwork's gone along with the screws. Bandages are coming off on Friday morning, but I must say it feels quite a bit better than it did.
Did anyone manage to watch any of the Paralympics here in London?
It was great. It seems that hop,skip and jump isn't called that any more. And I was going to put my name down for that.
Ricky and I could have gone in for the three legged race though.
Hope you're all in good order anyway.
Hello friend! >>MUAH<<
So, they took the rod out of Rod? Huh??? hee hee

I am very glad to hear it looks promising so far, and that Tolio lives! What were you gonna do with it if they took it?
I did hear about the paralympics over there, some interesting stuff! I don't think that really fast guy who can compete with world class fully legged runners should be allowed to also compete in the paralympics, what do you think?

Hiya Paise, I think he should have been allowed. It gave him no advantage and in any case he lost big style to a Brit in the 200 metres. But right or wrong they're a fantastic invention. My dad had only one leg, and he had to hump about a wooden 'peg' leg that was quite heavy and only practical in that it stopped him from leaning over too far to the left. He hadn't the knee joint though, and it's only with the invention of new, lighter and stronger materials that people with just the one leg can enjoy much more of a normal life. This carbon steel is brilliant.
What would I have done with the big digit if they'd removed it?
Easy..........there's a garage just down the road that's always on the lookout for someone who needs a tow.

Wonder why this thread appears and disappears from my tracker? Ever since it went underground then public again, it's done that.
'needs a tow' LOL!
Hope you're having a beautiful Autumn and that you're enjoying it. Love ya!

good evening all
one more ten hour shift and then four days off!

It is cooling down here and our two months with no rain has come to an end, I guess that is inevitable...but I do tire of the gray skies and incessant rain.
