    Not much to tell (yeah right), I restarted my life about 9 years ago, after spending almost 5 months in the hospital with a fungus that started in my lung that spread to the INSIDE of my brain. The largest of the masses inside my brain was the size of a golf ball, and 10 more of gradually smaller sizes. The Doctors didn't think I would make it, BUT I have a GREAT wife who stood (and slept) by my side. And With GOD in control ALL things were/are possible!
    I play mainly the "games" because they are easy to type. When I type it's ALWAYS like playing Boggle, the way I see the keys, they are always moving around the keypad, dyslexic now I guess (among OTHER problems of the mind). BUT AT LEAST I CAN TYPE AGAIN, even if it's only with one finger. Only on a VERY good day can I do much more.

    PS for a much more detailed account of my (first AND my latest) illness, it can be found in the arena of CHIT CHAT, under the heading of INJURIES, ACCIDENTS AND ILLNESS at Post # 52 and Post # 57 !

    PPS, I go into it A LITTLE more detail about me (like I haven't said enough) in "The Getting To Know You" thread, Post # 70.

    PPSS, even more personal stuff in "Have You Ever?" post # 1097

    PPPSS If you want to see a SHORT story I did, then check out "Have You Got Any Pets" post # 29.

    PPPSSS I've been asked in a couple of PM's about my new (to this site) picture, so I figured I'd answer the questions here once and for all.
    1) Yes, that is a real live Burro.
    2) No, my wife does NOT consider this cheating !
    3) No it was not trained to do that. I was actually warned against doing it at all (I've never been a great listener).
    4)No, it was not in ANY way Photo shopped. It happened as you see it.
    5) yes, there was a trick to it. If you look in my left hand, you will see a small bag. In that bag is Burro Treats. I put a LONG treat in my mouth. And even if it looks like my eyes were closed, let me assure you my left eye was WIDE open.
    6) No, no Burros were hurt while taking this picture.
    Any further questions, feel free to ask away !

    As many of you know, I've been on vacation visiting a couple of hospitals (including tours in ICU's) for 2+/- months.
    I wasn't in any condition to go into great details, but let me assure you, I am now closer to healthy then to dead (which for a while was a very real possibly).
    I CAN say that my condition involved a simple (simple..ME?), gall stone removal, a MASSIVE infection, medically induced coma, and other ugly stuff.
    Which, I've said, can be now be found in The CHIT-CHAT Arena under the thread INJURIES ACCIDENTS AND ILLNESS Post # 57.

    My "newest" health issue, as of May Forth (May The Forth Be With You) is a hernia at the operation site of my gallbladder site.
    I have an appointment with the surgeon tomorrow.
    As most of you know, Any surgery is (for me) inherently very risky
    with unknown side effects each time.
    I'll keep you posted as I learn anything.

    I've been in & out of surgery again for said hernia and again had some side effects and posted them in a brief note on INJURIES, ACCIDENTS, AND ILLNESSES Post # 75.

    I have been hospital/ER free for over three years and counting ! As of about July 2018 "they" rethought some of my medicines and my OCD and some other issues of the mind are getting better.

    Thanks to all of you for your thoughts, prayers, PM's, etc.

    I can still hardly move, and ELOISE is still in a lot of pain but can move around a bit more. I win.

    Neither ELOISE nor I are in great shape. She can't sit without a heating pad and I can't stand/or sit. What a pair we are (LOL). Bit I still win.

    LADY, I feel your pain. Our granddaughters develop allergies when they stay around things, like animals, for too long. Our oldest one bought a pair of rats but now have become allergic and wanted to know if we wanted them because she knew we used to raise rats (one was even in a movie), I would love to have ONE but PLAYDOH is a hunter from the stray mouse to the free range cows and wild deer and ANYTHING in between, so it just wouldn't be fair to at least one of them to be at peace. I win.

    Some day we will probably have to get a fake tree, but a real tree is something that ELOISE really, really loves so for as long as we can it's a real tree for us. At least we no longer have a 20' vaulted ceiling and we wound go out to find 20'by almost the same wide trees (we used a block and tackle system along with nails in the wall). So now with a 7' tree I call that a win.

    We limped around and finished our CHRISTmas shopping today so now we have plenty of time to rest up. I win.

    I voted for him. FINALLY I'm back ! ELOISE got hurt fairy bad at school by one of her kids and will be out of work for a while. In the meantime she wanted her live CHRISTmas tree to be found (80 miles away LOL) and put up. So I got selected to put it up by myself, including keeping it straight at the same time tightning the base. To make a long story short (I know, Too late) I pinched a nerve in my back and now I can barely move or even sit up. I know we are both not as bad as LADY has been so I win.

    Sorry about that, I SHOULD get better with practice. This was the first time of posting pictures anywhere without ANY help. There are a lot more pictures of cows being showoffs but I want to get better at posting first. I win.

    I don't know what started to happen, the more I tried to fix the problems, the more dogs and cows started to appear !

    Top picture was taken about 2 years ago. PLAYDOH on left and G.G. (short for GOOD GIRL) on right. Bottom picture was taken today by the side of our garage. This is how we do weed abatement out here in The Middle Of, The Middle Of Nowhere Nevada.

    Made it back home safe just in time, we were in between 2 snow storms and hardly saw a snowflake. As we got home our hose was surrounded by cows ! ELOISE took some great pictures and if we can figure out how to get them here you will see some really cute and funny pics. including how we do weed abatement in The Middle Of The Middle Of Nowhere. These cows were really hams today. I win. Yes KAREN, I would call that a win, just not the LAST win.

    Our 1 1/2 mile dirt road has turned into a muddy cow trail only able to drive if you have a 4X4 (we don't). Luckily there is another way out but it's longer and more out of the the way, but at least we are not totally stuck. And just as ELOISE was ready to go out it's starting to snow. ELOISE was going to go to town, but now I get to drive her. It's times like this I'm glad we lived high in the mountains for 15 years and I have the training of driving the mountain curvy roads. This will be a walk in the park (I Pray). And all this after going shopping yesterday while not getting back until 1 AM. I WIN.
