But they only come out once a year so I have to stock up.
The good news is low sodium. (I recently found out my BP is a little high when I went in for a fractured femural condile - but that's another story)

definitelynothumerusactuallyquitepainful

Nothing quite as exciting as saying I skied off a cliff (although I did use that line a few times after the first hundred questions)
We were on our annual Christmas tree hunt / sledding trip combined. (Turned out to be a very expensive tree!) I was sledding down a steep embankment with my younger daughter. We crashed at the bottom, and in an effort not to fall on her and crush her, I kind of threw myself to the side. Unfortunately my right leg was underneath me and went "snap" (I swear it was audible).
That was the end of the sledding portion, although I did still manage to get a tree before I let them take turns pulling me down the mountain in the sled. Went to the clinic on Monday (happened Saturday) and the P.A. took x-rays and "determined" I had strained the MCL. Gave me a brace, crutches, and a few happy pills for pain.
Four weeks later they do an MRI and determine that I fractured the femural condyle. (I wish I knew that before I hobbled around on it for four weeks). They don't think I tore the meniscus.
That was 12-1/2 weeks ago. I can almost walk normal now, but can't stand on it for long periods of time, about 90 minutes max.
Is it normal to take this long to heal? I've never broken anything before.
I'm not a good invalid, I need to be active. Not knowing anything was broken, I continued working using a wheelchair and crutches to get around. Drove with my left foot.
With the weather clearing I keep looking up at Colville Mountain behind work and wanting to get the TY350 out and go for a ride. That's probably not a good idea. Maybe if I get out the old pedal pusher and ride to work that would be good excercise for it?

The little guy is all healed without scars - it's funny you asked, as he just mentioned it tonight at the dinner table when mom got too close to him with a hot dish!

What fun! I read the first post and thought I'd go to the bottom and insert some suitably anarchic post! Got here after the party! Story of my life really.
Anyway, better late than never!!!

I love to go down to Hanks...
And walk to the cool river banks...
One day in the grass..
I stepped on an ass..
And heard a young girl murmer... Thanks!

Marc

Joys of owning an answering service.... D'oh!

Man calling his urologist, his name "Ben Dover" - naturally the operator thinks it's a prank call, but of course it isn't.

New young male operator takes a message for a female company president from her doctors office, "The doctor said your Pabst Beer was fine!"

We get a call from a woman who asks to speak to a lady named "Diona" at a largish vending machine company. We dutifully take the message. Later the client calls in and says "I don't have anyone named Diona working here. Are you sure this call is for my company?" We explain that we just have to make a message without giving the caller cause to be irritated. The client hangs up, calls the lady, then calls us back laughing hysterically! She says, "Well I's gotta tell ya'all I is de Owner of dis company!

A prank call to a bailbondsman is missed by an operator who must have at least three living brain cells. Why? The caller's supposed name was, "Hugh G. Rection"

My partner heard that and ran around for 15 minutes announcing "My dixie wrecked!" and laughing.

Oh it's fun to serve people!

Paula

I went to college with a guy who was the epitome of wayward and self-destructive. Using a pay phone he would dial the international code for Iceland and then a random number. When it was answered he'd scream: "what ****ing time do you call this?! don't you know you should be in bed!!" in a Scandinavian accent. It came as something of a shock when we heard that Special Branch (the UK FBI) were trying to find out who had done it. He'd managed to dial the Icelandic Prime Minister's private number! Lol!

Tow Vehicle Ironies

Some of the most heated arguments on this forum are about tow vehicles. It seems to be the accepted opinion that the biggest is the best and you catch h*** if you should dare to disagree.

Here's something I think is interesting. Almost ALL of the big eighteen wheelers have six cylinder diesel engines. Don't believe me? Ask. The popular logic here is that the tow vehicle should weigh "at least" as much as the trailer it is pulling. Yet 80M is the limit for big rigs, and only 25 or 30M is the TV. The TV weighs only about a third of the weight of the trailer. You think there might be some other things to consider?

Aren't those bluebonnets pretty this year?

You have made my point for me. To safley tow a 16 Bambi you MUST use a Ford F350 dually.
