: Hi Jo,
: Now I DID warn you people that delegating the morning post to an old fart had its drawbacks. I ain't some spring chicken you know, of any color, green included. (and by the way, to a two foot gnome, a stuffed parrot would be like a 30 lb turkey ya know.)
: But back to the subject (we old people do that a lot too, drift in and out of subject and conversation).
: Uh, what was the subject again?
: OH! yeah, so anyways yes I did sleep in this morning. Nobody knew it cause I was a stoic old fart, but I had looseness of the gooseness for FOUR (count em - yes 4) days beginning last Friday.
: That kinda took the stuffing outta me if you know where I am heading. Spent two days either in bed or on the throne. Am still trying to get my old peppy energy back. Betty is giving me gator-aid intravenously, making me eat yogurt (what IS that crap anyways) and otherwise abusing me with health-conscious foods and programs. Word to the wise to all you old gents out there - forget younger women. they got too dang much energy. Word number two to the wise - nurses are great people - top of the line - but don't let one into your house and for DANG sure, don't
: let one into your LIFE unless you have beforehand a contractual agreement that they will NOT be allowed to change your life toward the healthy one iota from your previous gluttony, caloric, good-tasting previous lifestyle.
: Okay, I drift again. Do that a lot lately.
: So, now, Jo - arent you glad you asked. JO? JO? WAKE UP!!!
: I do that a lot too, put people to sleep.
: Bill R
Be thankful it wasn't tofu straight out of the carton....
who has almost managed to stay awake allll day; although some would question where my mind went to then and again....
even was able to eat lunch without food dribbling down the chin...the curse of being old!
Hope you feel better soon; having a mom who is a nurse; I know exactly what you are saying!
