Yes, they took x-rays then gave him some pain killers and muscle relaxers so he could sleep. He is calling his regular doctor today. He needs to get back into physical therapy until this flareup blows over.

The other day my daughter had a friend come over. The front door was left open a crack and my daughter's cat slipped out. This cat had solely been an indoor cat. It's been two days now and there's been no sign of the cat. I am upset. My daughter left food at the front door and her garage door open a bit so the cat can slip inside if it should come back. Not a single sign. I'm afraid the cat is gone and the unknown is terrible. There is a big corn field across the street but it is plowed flat right now. I don't know if a coyote got the cat or some idiot in the neighborhood. I'm sad.

Hopefully the pain killers will help.

Thats sad. Have you checked the trees in the area? Cats also like to hide under stuff if they get scared. I hope it comes back.

One of our cats went missing for 3 months once. He came back skinny but healthy. He was an indoor/outdoor cat though. I hope your cat has claws. Not much good without them.

So I took off yesterday afternoon on the harley to try out some new goodies . Hitting the rev limiter before changing gears , i got it wide open , slow down , I had my fun so I head back to the shop where pops is waiting .
DAD- Did you put new pipes on that ?
ME- no, why ? I heard you all the way into town .... One of these days your gonna get into a high speed wobble , and its going to be the most terrifying ride of your life ...
ME- Yea I know
DAD -Well , how did it do ? lol

Black and White
(Under age 40? You won't understand.)
You could hardly see for all the snow,
Spread the rabbit ears as far as they go..
Pull a chair up to the TV set,
'Good Night, David.
Good Night, Chet.'
My Mom used to cut chicken,
chop eggs and spread mayo
on the same cutting board
with the same knife and no bleach,
but we didn't seem to get food poisoning.
My Mom used to defrost hamburger
on the counter and I used to eat it raw
sometimes, too. Our school sandwiches
were wrapped in wax paper in a brown paper bag,
not in ice pack coolers,
but I can't remember getting e.coli.
Almost all of us would have rather
gone swimming in the lake
instead of a pristine pool (talk about boring),
no beach closures then.
The term cell phone would have conjured up
a phone in a jail cell, and a pager
was the school PA system.
We all took gym, not PE...
and risked permanent injury
with a pair of high top Ked's (only worn in gym)
instead of having cross-training athletic shoes
with air cushion soles and built in light reflectors.
I can't recall any injuries but they must have happened
because they tell us how much safer we are now.
Flunking gym was not an option...
even for stupid kids!
I guess PE must be much harder than gym.
Speaking of school, we all said prayers,
and staying in detention after school
caught all sorts of negative attention.
We must have had horribly damaged psyches.
What an archaic health system we had then.
Remember school nurses?
Ours wore a hat and everything.
I thought that I was supposed to accomplish
something before I was allowed
to be proud of myself.
I just can't recall how bored we were
without computers, Play Station, Nintendo,
X-box or 270 digital TV cable stations..
Oh yeah... and where was the Benadryl
and sterilization kit when I got that bee sting?
I could have been killed!
We played 'king of the hill' on piles of gravel
left on vacant construction sites,
and when we got hurt,
Mom pulled out the 48-cent bottle
of mercurochrome (kids liked it better
because it didn't sting like iodine did)
and then we got our butt spanked.
Now it's a trip to the emergency room,
followed by a 10-day dose
of a $49 bottle of antibiotics,
and then Mom calls the attorney
to sue the contractor for leaving
a horribly vicious pile of gravel
where it was such a threat.
We didn't act up at the neighbor's house either,
because if we did we got our butt spanked there
and then we got our butt spanked again
when we got home.
I recall Donny Reynolds from next door
coming over and doing his tricks
on the front stoop, just before he fell off.
Little did his Mom know that she
could have owned our house.
Instead, she picked him up and swatted him
for being such a goof.
It was a neighborhood run amuck.
To top it off, not a single person I knew
had ever been told that they were from
a dysfunctional family.
How could we possibly have known that?
We needed to get into group therapy
and anger management classes.
We were obviously so duped
by so many societal ills,
that we didn't even notice
that the entire country
wasn't taking Prozac!
How did we ever survive?
LOVE TO ALL OF US WHO SHARED THIS ERA.
AND TO ALL WHO DIDN'T,
SORRY FOR WHAT YOU MISSED.
