TOPIC: I THINK I'm back for real this time.

I THINK I'm back for real this time. 29 Jul 2019 16:34 #1

Howdy all!

The last year has been a living hell. Last spring I was diagnosed with spinal stenosis. This little gem has effected the use of my left hand and generates about a 5 on the pain scale on a good day. Other maladies crept in and the trip has been "trippy."

Physical Therapy, Occupational Therapy, Athletic Conditioning Therapy and Alcohol Therapy have all been implemented and seem to be doing the trick. I hope.

Anywho... I'm back to offer pithy remarks (not pissy remarks Dave C.) and to dazzle you with my lack of productivity. I will be purchasing a new AB in Chattanooga (my old reliable badger was borrowed and ruarnt (a fine southern word I picked up in South Alabama) with out my knowledge (someone is paying for a new AB, aren't they daughter?) while the stand-by is going to Badger for reconditioning.

Oh, and did I mention that I retire on July 31, 2019? :yipee Thrity-two years of military service, 19 years of teaching, 5 years of federal civil service. :soldier I will not longer be marching along...

As posted elsewhere, I'll be in Chattanooga on Saturday. Anyone wants to meet up, let me know. :dude
