aaacchh chooo! hey everyone; back home from our night out in Clearwater but I was miserable with this cold - but the 6 bloody mary's seemed to control the cold long enough for me to enjoy the bands. dance a little ...then I slept like a rock in a nice comfy hotel room; got up very late; went and did some work in Lakeland and back home in time to get some Baked Ziti in the oven to munch on while watching the Nascar race - except I am just going to eat the Ziti and go back to bed....

Mehawk - hope you get through the anniverary okay...

Dina- looks like you are having fun -- and does that friend want to go on the cruise in February.

Darlene: that clock is getting shorter - wooo hooooo....

BObby G - yep bartering is always a good thing!

Rescue: you are like me - you don't know when to say NO!....

JamesRT - trying to find a recipe - it is for a rasperry roll - think it is a german receipe - but I don't know the name of the dessert - any ideas.

Fantastic news Michael... I wouldn't mind seeing you in your uniform. I've always been a sucker for a man in uniform. hehehe
Thanks, Carolin. Go to the Personal Cruise Pictures and look for the one of me in uniform with President and Barbara Bush. It is titled... Politicians.

Thanks for all of your cares and wishes my friends. I suffered through a restless morning and had dreams of death all morning. Not feeling very well right now but, it will pass.

Joe, I wanted to start the evening with some cocktails but couldn't bring myself to do it. I felt bad all day yesterday. probably the anxiety of the day.

Good morning, Michael! Hope today will find you feeling a little better than yesterday.

C'mon boys and girls! Rise and Shine!

Don't know what today will hold for me, but I'm sure I'll find some kind of trouble to get into. Today is my dear son's 29'th birthday. I just don't see how he can be that old -- I'm not much older than that!

good morning everyone & hope everyone has a great day

mehawk - who are the eastern friends (would that be Bobby G, Dina & Walter)

Darlene - the other day on the radio I heard something that made me feel really old - on the rock album Nirvana there is a little nakID baby swimming on the album; that baby is now 17 years old.... - that album came out when I was YOUNG

Well, we know Walter certainly WON'T be thinking about us! Does anyone remember what ship he is on and what port he may be in today? We can all imagine we are there. That's almost as good, huh? Yeah, right. I'm sure you all believe that!

Martha, how is the cold? Did it go away just in time for you Monday madness?

Wow what a weekend I had. To start off I gained back all the weight I lost playing all that tennis thanks to all the help from my friend bud weiser! So I decided I needed to get back into shape again cause another pound or 2 and I wasn't going to fit into my uniform. I refused to do that so I started doing some road biking, about 5-10 miles a day and eating better also swithched to non alcoholic beer. Lost 8 1/2lbs since last tuesday! Well back to the bad weekend. guess what happened cause of all the biking? well lets say I went through a lot of monkey butt cream, I think I now own the company! coupled with that, since all my wifes relatives are coming down the backyard shrubs around the pool needed some well overdue pruning and weeding! let's see, it was like 100 degrees, can't drink beer, feel like a bowling ball is clamped to my butt and I was knee deep in the brush! as a matter of fact for some reason behind this one area there was tons of weeds and thorny branches, no one but me around and I was back there so long I felt like I was in an episode of man vs wild! I actually started seeing some bugs and wondered if they were edible! wondered if I needed to could I build a fire! I was in so much pain that if I passed out from it no one would know I was back there! it was like the never ending weed and prune-a-thon. After I got done I hobbled in the house and passed out in bed but first got on the net and was looking up surgeons who do house calls and actually googled info to see if it was safe to just lance it open (I'm serious, I was that desperate!) well woke up this morning and unbelievably it resolved, well 90% at least. So now I am stuck doing all the things I siad I was going to do when I prayed to god to either resolve it or let me die in my sleep! (again not kidding) well it's back on the bike for another 10K tonight!

Rescue, that sounds way too painful to imagine! Do you have biking shorts, with the extra padding? I sure hope so!

You really need to get on the computer and look up what it means to know your limitations! You could seriously hurt yourself! (other that this weekend).

I actually did buy them because I was worried about my condition. Also bought a gel seat cover! next I think I am just going to throw a lazyboy on top of the seat HAHAHAHA. Also because I bought real biking pants and told all my buddies I did, because the tour de France was on this week, they are all busting my chops. Everyone is calling me Lance now and asking me if I bought one of those yellow jerseys to ride in. But as usual my competitive rage will persevere! I will show them! They have thrown down the gauntlet and I as usual will come out victorious!


Could seriously hurt myself???? yes I agree! I pulled to many weeds.

Rescue, I'm sure James has an extra tractor seat he can give you. I believe it will bolt right on your bicycle! Problem solved!
