Well went to see the surgeon today and he seemed a bit ticked at the insurance company.

He said they must have been upset because he did not use the exact wording they need on some form. He said any orthopedic doctor in the world would agree I needed the surgery.

Guess it's like if I said I was painting my house beige and someone else insisted it was light tan!

This may be trivial, but for crying out loud, it’s only May in SouthCentral Pennsylvania......

Well it's not much better up here near Syracuse NY! We hit a record, think it was 92 or maybe a touch more. I was just saying to my wife it was only a few weeks back I was running the snow blower on the driveway!

Well never know around here! I probably should fire that one at least to stir up the Stabile in the fuel tank after topping it off again. See I had them all set for storage and had to dig one back out for that last time!

So sorry about those.

One thing that really bothers me is the constant variation in how I can feel and what part of my body is effected.

Kind of like spending a day trying to figure out why scooter won't start then taking the night off and go back in the morning and it starts just fine but the front tire is flat! Then once you have the leaking valve stem replaced you find the battery is dead! Once that is replaced it starts raining for three days!

Wife sometimes gets upset when I complain about one problem one day and later that day or the next day it is something seemingly totally unrelated. Like playing whack-a-mole with your health!

Gah! Why do people with young kids choose the messiest food (or any food) to bring with them to an appointment?

Patient today brings her 1 1/2 y.o. along, didn't seem all that restless. Breaks off a piece of Pop Tart, and within 5 minutes there are crumbs on chairs and spread over 10 square feet of floor. I know, not easy getting through the day with kids.... and after my own I'm more understanding of the challenges, but sheesh, one could plan ahead for the inevitable with, I don't know, fruit leather or something?

Gee I was going to ask you for an appointment soon and bring a nice PB&J sandwich to eat while I waited! With an extra spoonful of the J!

I woke myself up at 4:00 this morning to view and photograph the lunar eclipse. Last evening I prepared the camera and mounted it on its tripod. I was all ready to go.

Only to be foiled by "May gray", the precursor to "June gloom", the annual weather pattern that yields the famous Los Angeles weather forecast, "Night and early morning low clouds burning off to sunny skies in the afternoon; highs in the mid-seventies".

We need to start a support group. Every time I actually remember an astronomical event, it's either cloudy or downright raining. If I'm going to do this, I need to move to Arizona...

They're renovating the restrooms at work (making them more handicap accessible), which means that I now have to go up one (or two) flights of stairs to use it when needed, instead of walking across the hall.

The only reason this pisses me off (no pun intended) is that I'm severely out of shape, and am winded by the time I get back to my desk.

I know, I need to exercise more and eat better. Working on it.

OH, I've got a good one...

When your best tech does not explicitly follow direction on how to install and update to the CORRECT build accounting/time keeping software things can go very badly. Add to that it is a law firm and the DATABASE was updated and no one can connect plus now there seem to be 5 of them?

It's going to be a long night methinks...

Well survived the ordeal and we still have a law firm all set to save the world. Mind you I have to get in the shower now and be there at 7:30 am to finish up things...

On the bright side my guy was getting a little cocky and this has brought him back down to ground level. He needed a reminder as to why I am not just the owner but actually pretty good at what I do. So FULLY reading my instructions is a good thing to do. By not doing so we had to use hours of our labour and him fully stressed out that he killed their server's DB and there might be data loss (there wasn't).

Yay Friday.

The internet at work, specifically wifi, but also the ethernet connection, keeps dropping out. When it comes back up, my chat window refreshes to where it was this morning, and has a hard time reloading the most recent messages.

Aarrgh!!! Trader Joes has discontinued their Seville orange Marmalade. It was as good as the best I used to know in the UK. As far as I know there's nothing else like it on the regular supermarket shelves. Together with the Marmite disappearing this is disastrous!

I am given to understand that marmalade can be made at home quite easily. I haven't done it, but Patrick has. Might be worth developing a new skill.

The necessary oranges are only available in February - so eight months to go.

I, too, had a favorite marmalade that disappeared - King Kelly Light. I liked the light version because it had more orange and less sugar. I finally found a replacement, Smucker's Natural.

So I'm feeling for you, Jim.

The doctor who's been most helpful so far with my current issues is suggesting a diagnostic/treatment that I am 99% sure will prove pointless, and it's simply because my body has to be whack-a-doo and not respond properly to the elements used for it. I guess the ultimate decision in this case is really just a yes or no. I'd like my records to show that I'm open and willing for treatment, but I know damn well it's going to screw me up really badly for at least a week.

For the moment, I am just trying to figure out if it's possible for me to roll my eyes, shake my head, and sigh hard enough to do the whole mess justice. I don't think adding facepalming would be a good idea, but I have considered it.

Witch,

Hope you have some luck with what they are going to try. Guess as long as it doesn't make thing a lot worse any results even negative ones can help point the direction to go next.

I did get my shoulder repair work done yesterday. They tossed in nerve block to numb the shoulder right down to finger tips. Made whole right feel like a dead piece of meat just hanging it the sling. Try to even open or close hand and there was no reaction. Finally late this afternoon that has worn off and now things move but with that comes a bit of soreness and pain in the site of the surgery.

Next week I start PT so that should help, at least it did when I had the same work done 10 years back!

What's pissing me off?

Ordered a couple ball bearings to rebuild a spindle on mower deck on May 26th. Got tracking number from sender and notice that they were at Postal facility in Miami, Fl on the 27th. Next tracking report said they were in Memphis, Tenn on 28th. One day I even got a notice they were deliver but nothing in mail box!

Then this morning get a tracking notice saying they were at postal facility in Roanoke, Va. Can only wonder how long it will take to get to Syracuse NY! Glad these are only to rebuild a spare spindle and I'm watching the grass grow waiting to fix mower deck!

I mean these bearings are smaller than a Double stuffed Oreo cookie not something the size of a Cat D10 dozer!

If you find this brand buy it, there is also the orange flavor and also the lemon flavor.

I mean these bearings are smaller than a Double stuffed Oreo cookie not something the size of a Cat D10 dozer!

I am kind of pissed that I didn't buy 50 2x4s back when they were $3 a piece before the pandemic hit.

Not today but last Saturday I had a flat tire going 70 miles an hour on the highway. Luckily it was a slow leak and I survived. Bummer I had to and the changing the tire away from home. I had a spare in my shed.

See my post - "People who knock over scooters"

I think I will be pissed off for many days over that. That dude is messing with my child's scooter.

Thank you and I made another mechanic friend. It was so nice of him to let me use his shop on a Saturday afternoon. In the shade under the carport. It was one of those bad situations that turn into a good experience in the end. He is from El Salvador and then we had a nice chat while I worked. He told me that the hamburger in El Salvador is called puposas. I can't wait to try we have a few restaurants in the area that serve it. Anyone ever tried it?

Hi Max,

Glad you're OK!

I have had pupusas. They are savory, fried, stuffed, pastry things. They are usually made on a griddle, but I have had them deep fried as well.

Wikipedia: A pupusa is a thick griddle cake or flatbread from El Salvador and Honduras made with cornmeal or rice flour, similar to the Venezuelan and Colombian arepa. In El Salvador, it has been declared the national dish and has a specific day to celebrate it. It is usually stuffed with one or more ingredients which may include cheese (such as quesillo or cheese with loroco buds), chicharrón, squash, or refried beans. It is typically accompanied by curtido (a spicy cabbage slaw) and tomato salsa, and is traditionally eaten by hand.

Max, found a Salvadoran restaurant and bakery not too far away in Madison, had vegetarian pupusas that were pretty awesome. We've been back a couple of times. Interesting and tasty.
