I've been sitting here thinking about the tornado that hit Mpls. yesterday.
It dropped about 200 yds from my previous house which my best friend now owns. Then it went through a park and continued to north Minneapolis. That is a very poor predominately black part of town. So far one death and 30+ injuries have been reported. The houses in that area are old and full of asbestos. One time I was on a job in that area and the po-po stormed the house. I laid in the bathtub to avoid being caught in crossfire. Another time I was in a house that had 60+ cats. I condemned the equipment there and thought the woman was going to try and clean my clock. There were reports of looting and gunfire yesterday within an hour of the touchdown. It's hard or impossible to save us from ourselves.

LW you know there aren't any guarantees, but you sure have beaten some serious odds. A few times. Please take strength from that thought.

A nice quiet pain free, hajji free day and the sleep of the just tonight Sweetheart. Miss SG, I hope your former house and your friend were both unhurt by the tornado.

Wow, good deal! Got room in your luggage going to Hawaii? You'll have to send me more pics from this trip when you have time.

You'll be happy to know that my shrink started back asking me to do that writing assignment. I was hoping he'd forget all about it.

Brats and beer. Don't forget the beer. Thank you for putting me on the prayer board. I got your PM and read it, I'll write back, I promise. I'm so far behind I'll bet some GT'ers want to lynch me.

I laid in the bathtub to avoid being caught in crossfire.Smart move!
Another time I was in a house that had 60+ cats. I love cats, but that's about 55 to 57 cats too many! I condemned the equipment there and thought the woman was going to try and clean my clock. I had no idea you could condemn equipment. There were reports of looting and gunfire yesterday within an hour of the touchdown. Stay safe over there! Do I need to stay here to be safe? It's hard or impossible to save us from ourselves.

LW you know there aren't any guarantees, but you sure have beaten some serious odds. A few times. Please take strength from that thought.
Wow, that's scary about your friend and old house! Glad they're all OK!

Yeah, I have. I don't know that I take strength from knowing that or if it just is, but I did and here I am.

It was a hajji-free day, so one out of 3 aint bad, right? Definitely not pain-free, and sleep wasn't near that good yet.

^^^ I sent you another pic tonight.

I hope you can get to Hawaii some day. You'd enjoy it.

We saw an ad today for Lone Wolf Harley-Davidson. Did you open your own store? I bet you'd love THAT!

You better start writing then.

Nobody wants to lynch, everyone is just chiming in to show support for you. Think of it as your own support team.

She would hate not being able to ride. Besides I think Idaho is too cold for her in the winter.

I've start by buying a vowel.

You better start writing then.
I'll start tomorrow, my doc and terrorist abused me to the point I went in and got some serious extra pain meds again tonight. I'm surprised they didn't keep me there. Kinda wish they had, I'd be asleep by now instead of looking around for a hand to squeeze.

She's right, seeing those bikes every day and not being able to ride one would just piss me off.

Are you writing yet?: impatient:
Not yet. I'll try tomorrow if I don't have to spent all day fighting with the server or being abused myself. My doc did range of motion tests, but he took X-rays at the same time. Ouch!

For me, just breathing the cold air would hurt enough to keep me from even going out in the ice and snow.

Yeah, I saw the lack of the e. Mrs Bob is the one who saw it first. I just thought it was funny considering your love of motorcycles.

You are welcome in August or anytime.

You forget how I make my $. I LOVE HEAT, SNOW, ICE and SUB-ZERO temps.
I call all of it dollars from heaven. Having grown up in the southeast, and learning which clothes to wear here I adapt pretty well to changing conditions. It isn't uncommon to have 90 plus days in MN with humidity.
I like humidity too. Latent heat and sensible heat pay the same.

The rattlesnake stories I've heard about Bob's area are something else all together. NO THANKS.

LW I hope the meds help and that you can sleep.

Thank you my friend...I would never be bored of listening to you. I have broad shoulders and good ears!

Anyone know what could be causing bruising, weakness, breathing difficulties, falling, poor appetite and memory problems that wouldn't show up on a basic blood test, urine test and xrays? I can't get any further tests done due to lack of insurance, and the ER says take her to her primary care...and just treats the symptoms without any diagnoses.

Lady Glock have they checked her for Lyme Disease?

Bob where is that place that they catch the rattlesnakes? I thought my Uncle was teasing but it sounds like it's for real.

They took 3 vials of blood, one cup of urine and 2 chest xrays. They said the blood counts were normal, diabetes rules out, same with anemia. That's all they would tell me. They are a free clinic and said anything else would have to be done at my expense, and I am unemployed...so that is not an option at this time. Waiting to move...I know I can get them medical when we get back up north. Not to mention...I'm looking forward to finding a job and getting back to work!!!!!!!

Howdy folks! I got an email from Miss Lone and she's in the hospital; it appears GT is blocked and she can't get on. She wanted me to let y'all know she's OK. I have visions of her sneaking down the hall with Mandy acting as lookout in order to fire off an elicit email.
