    Bob,
    I searched and there's not one to be had! I believe they stopped putting them back up because they were always being hiested. Someone probably has a small collection of them, but to find that person may be impossible!

    I'll keep trying, but short of "fabbing" one up for you, you may be out of luck!

    Oh Shari, you mentioned pool boy, there's a story there from BG about 4years ago, when 3 of our best Michigan GS boys, stayed in the same room at the Fairfield Inn, and we called them every morning for Raoul, the pool boy and got a different one every day, what fun!
    Annie wasn't around for that, we'll have do have a redo, someday!

    Home!

    Got 'released' this afternoon. Everything went well, technically, and I am not in a ton of pain (perhaps I have just become accustomed?)

    I am on a 5 LB weight restriction with this arm. Seriously?????? Geez, my jeans weigh 5 lbs!!!

    Not really sure how all the pool/stable/yard/cabana boy stuff will work out. Right now, the grass is so high that I can barely see the truck. My local support (the older couple down the road who adopted me) are gone on vacation until next week.

    Oh well. Worst part was they gave me a nerve block beforehand. Supposedly to limit the amount of anesthesia and keep the pain away. That did work - but I freaked as they were administering the nerve block, while I was completely awake, and the guy was threading stuff into my neck and detailing the procedure to the intern in training. :shock: :ball:

    Then we went into the O/R. My entire right side is completely numb. They put the mask on me and I immediately can't breathe, talk, etc. :eek2: I freak again. Then it all goes black.

    That was all pretty harrowing. Otherwise, it went well.

    Thanks for all the thoughts and prayers. They really helped!! :TU:

    Not really sure about your androgynous comment.........:confused: :confused:

    Thanks for the kitten....but I have enough animals here now. 2 dogs, 2 horses and a mule on it's way (yes, an actual long-eared mule). And I'll bet there may be some barn kittens up in the hayloft if I went looking for them. But I won't......

    I also have a set of twin fawns running about and a rooster pheasant who believes he owns the place. It's a regular menagerie around here.....but none of these ungrateful animals will mow the lawn!!!!!!!!!!!!

    :Dou: Now you want me to be responsible for the things that come OUT of my mouth!! One way discretion is difficult enough. Remember, right now I only have one hand to place over my mouth as a block.....

    ANDROGYNOUS peeps aren't allowed to be lumberjacks.

    nonsense. noone can resist teh kittay
    Ok, send the dang thing. But when I have to SHOOT IT OUT OF A TREE after the dog trees it, I don't want to hear no :ball: :ball: :ball:


    actually the reason for all the freaking is due to the fact that if they kill me......I haven't gotten my will in order.........and I keep procrastinating it. I want to make sure you get custody of all the aminals, Bob. :TU:

    but transvestites are just fine? i'll let Truzi know....

    Remember, right now I only have one hand to place over my mouth as a block.....

    hold that pose, i'll be right up....

    I haven't gotten my will in order.........and I keep procrastinating it.

    i get it ... they're not allowed to kill you because you don't yet have your 'affairs' in order. elegant logic, that. :idea2:

    I want to make sure you get custody of all the aminals, Bob.

    i like aminals. they're mighty tasty bar-b-qued over some mesquite.

    after the dog trees it

    never fear, i send you a badass kittay, he take care of himself:

    Glad you're oky-doky Annie. :TU:
    They were gonna sedate you for the 'block? when I went in a few years ago for the block, 1: I was totaly awake. :( 2: The "doctor" tried to insist that I watch the procedure on TV :Dou: 3: ONLY the general anathesia (sp?) (local injection)numbed my back. That is until that 8 in needle hit my spinal nerve. :ball: Boy I would've jumped through the ceiling if I thought that needle wouldn't break! 3 hours later it all came back. Never again :TU:


    "I am on a 5 LB weight restriction with this arm. Seriously?????? Geez, my jeans weigh 5 lbs!!!"

    Then now my dear is the Puuuurfect time to go "anatural":TU:
    You may get you a stable boy yet:shock: :laugh:
