QUIET DAYS IN THE OLD CORRAL
The pain had me awake at 4 a.m. so it was a quick scramble to get a couple pills down. Twenty minutes later I was OK…..for awhile. Can’t imagine how awful it must have been for people years ago before all the pain killing meds were invented and available.
Twinkling stars from horizon to horizon last night and oh how I love to see that.
THERE WAS A LOT OF DONKEY DOG SMOOCHING GOING ON TODAY AGAIN
Leonard Knight was recently hospitalized and diagnosed as incapable of managing his life. Leonard will be spending his remaining days at a nursing home in El Cajon, California. And, just who is Leonard Knight. Anyone who has ever been to Slab City has seen SALVATION MOUNTAIN. Kelly and I toured through Leonard’s creation back on December 18th of 2007. Leonard had gone into town that morning so we did not get to meet him. Fortunately, another old timer and friend of his showed us all around. You can see my photos of that day here at, SALVATION MOUNTAIN AND SLAB CITY. My post for that day can be found here at, SLAB CITY...WHAT ELSE CAN I SAY.
MOTOR DIDN’T COME FOR A WALK WITH PHEEBS AND I BUT DID KEEP AN EYE ON US FROM ATOP HER LITTLE PERCH
Looks like some low life scumball has hacked my Facebook account. For anyone who has me on their Facebook, do not confirm any ‘Friends’ requests from me. I suggest you block my hacked account. It is not me sending out those phony money schemes. I may dump my Facebook account anyway because I don’t use it for anything other than posting my daily blogs. Somebody said something about changing the Password but we’ll see. I’m not big on those social media sites to begin with whether it be Facebook, Twitter, Google+, Dinosaur Dung, or Floppy Jaws a Flappin!! Update…. Kelly has changed my Facebook password so we’ll see if that has fixed the problem. Despite all the Gobblygook stuff on Facebook I guess it is still best to have at least one alternate communication site at one’s disposal.
Sure don’t know how I would get along without Kelly. She spent hours on the computer this morning researching this Kidney Stone thing. The general consensus among many kidney stone sufferers is that there are alternate ways to try and get rid of the stone oneself. I have nothing to lose by trying some methods that many have had success with. It basically involves lots of lemon juice and olive oil. Right now as I type this at 11:30 a.m. Kelly is off to a favorite health food store in Douglas to acquire ingredients. I also started on Milk of Magnesia this morning because those pain killing pills have a miserable little side effect. Let’s just say my eyes are just about bulging out of my head right about now.
Nice sunny day with milder temps but the wind sure has begun to kick up. Bad weather west of here has caused Jeanie and Ray to delay their departure time until Monday. They have one mountain pass to go through and don’t want to be doing that in bad weather.
<<< THESE TWO WILL JUST NOT GIVE IT UP
Want to say thanks to everyone for your thoughts, ideas and willingness to help in any way shape or form. We sure have a lot of best friends out here in the RVing community who we have never met. We do have another RV Blogging couple rolling in Saturday to say Hello and meet Jeanie and Ray plus ourselves as well. They are the folks who will be looking after things here at the Ranch when we roll out heading further west next month.
By the way, I have no intentions whatsoever of returning to Ontario to have this Kidney Stone problem dealt with. Don’t know what is going to happen but I will fight that option every inch of the way. I know the insurance company is only looking out for their bottom line and not my health condition so we may have a nasty bit of business coming up!! As in the words of RETIRED ROD, “As far as returning to Canada for the procedure, that's just nuts! What did you buy US insurance for?” Well Rod, those are our feelings exactly!!
Sun is going down so gonna wrap this day up early. Just not feeling the best and I suspect it’s those pain pills. Pheebs and I did manage to slip out around the Ranch to snap us a few pics for tonight’s post. Kelly returned with a whole pile of Kidney Stone busting stuff plus a bag of fresh lemons. Maybe tomorrow I will explain what kind of a treatment plan she has me on. Sure got a lot of ingredients here that would not be my first choice for yumminess in the old taste test department……. Not one of my better days, but we always have tomorrow, eh:))
GROANER’S CORNER:(( With the help of a fertility specialist, a 65 year old woman has a baby. All her relatives come to visit and meet the newest member of their family. When they ask to see the baby, the 65 year old mother says "not yet."
Finally they say, "When can we see the baby?" And the mother says, "When the baby cries." They all ask, "Why do we have to wait until the baby cries?"
The new mother says, "because I forgot where I put it."
