What's on your Mind?

Recommended Posts

My 8 month old pup Luca Brasi had an allergic reaction to meds the doc gave him and had to be rushed to the hospital yesterday.....

 

he is fine, we have him resting back home...........very relieved......

 

and

 

reading Alex's build thread and wishing I could drive my car today.............only 13 more days to wait.......

 

 

and then on to terlingua as the cherry on top! :dance:

 

Wicked- I don't like hearing stories about our 'best friends' that are concerning. Thank goodness the little guy will be ok! I know it tears me up when Cozmo is under the weather for any reason!!!

Why do some people will hang out with you when you have access to events and then decide that when they have access, do not make contact with you? Sounds like a one way issue on their part.

What would you do if you found out that someone has added three years to their age, just to sound older than they are. To me, it just a LIE.

Bikeboy.........rushing him to the hospital and stuck in traffic yesterday morning as he got worse and worse in the backseat is not an experience I

would wish on anyone.........then they kept me waiting for 90 minutes in a side room as they worked on him......

 

very tense and stressful day for me yesterday......

 

but it all worked out.....Luca is a strong boy and pulled thru it.................

 

Dale stayed home to take care of him today and I cant wait to see him in 30 minutes when I get home. :happy feet: :salute:

Well, the whats on your mind status updates appear to no longer be a part of the website, but that doesnt mean we cant have it anyway!

 

Different from the no topic thread, think of this as your thread to release that thought you would have used the staus update for.

 

 

So, What's on your mind?

 

When I access TS with my Sprint EVO, I see the "What's On Your Mind" area. Yet with IE8, it does not appear. Robert, do you any idea?

I got a Call yesterday afternoon from a Female, she sounded like she was a heavy Smoker with a raspy voice between the ages of mid 40's to mid 50's. She wanted to talk with me about the Advertising Sales Job I have open for my Magazine. She was saying all the right things, she did Ad Sales for a local Car Finders Magazine and had all the needed contacts so I decided to go ahead meet with her today. All I can say is WOW....... :drool: In person, she is late 20's early 30's with a SEXY raspy voice and is a major HOTTIE. Think Young Bo Derek :drool:

I listen to the Radio at work and I wander if the Businesses realize what they are doing when it comes to Commercials. Our Radio Station are owned by maybe there different Companies and that sucks. One of the companies ownes like 9 different Stations and that REALLY sucks. Their Advertising Sales Person/People needs to be educated a bit more when it comes to Advertising. They seem to talk local Businesses into buying Blocks of Air Time where they run their Commercials every 15 to 20 Minutes, the SAME Commercial, the SAME Irritating Commercial..............then to top it off, they will say the Phone Number 3 to 4 Times in a row. Why is that, it's not like we wont have another chance to write down the Phone Number from the :censored: IRRITATING :censored: COMMERCIAL in another :censored: 15 :censored: MINUTES :censored: I have stoped visiting a lot of Businesses because of their :censored: IRRITATING :censored: COMMERCIALs.

 

OK, thats what was on my Mind.

Since you asked... I have begun to take writing seriously, now. I love to write about cars. I always wanted to start a website like HubGarage. Just had way too many irons in the blaze!

 

Now that the Bikestore is history, I have found the passion in writing. I have written a few things this week. Mostly short stories...commentary'ish, if you will. Don't know if it will make me any dough? Don't really care. Started a blog on blogger.com. Don't have a clue what that means!! Haha! I am mostly a computer putz! My wife says I need an agent. I am not convinced. I want my writings to have an automotive slant, or flair. It's the only thing in my life outside of my wife that I love...CARS! The other day I wrote a story about todays car buying experience. I showed it to some family members and neighbors. They seemed to think it was amusing. What better thing to write about, considering I have had just shy of 100 cars in my lifetime!

 

Anyway, you asked. Thanks

 

BIKEBOY, or CDH as my writing sig will be. :)

agreed on this...there are tons of products that I won't buy or businesses that I won't visit...just because of their irritating commercials.

tes---OK, now the dopey part of my personality shines through... Dave Barry?? I should know, right? Remember, writing is just a passion...I know nothing of any writers. The only person I have really followed over the long haul is Jean Jennings Lindamood. She writes about cars, with a sarcastic flare.

Here is Dave Barry's Style.......................

 

Dave Barry on his Colonoscopy ... This is from news hound Dave Barry's colonoscopy journal:

 

... I called my friend Andy Sable, a gastroenterologist, to make an appointment for a colonoscopy. A few days later, in his office, Andy showed me a color diagram of the colon, a lengthy organ that appears to go all over the place, at one point passing briefly through Minneapolis .

 

Then Andy explained the colonoscopy procedure to me in a thorough, reassuring and patient manner. I nodded thoughtfully, but I didn't really hear anything he said, because my brain was shrieking, quote, 'HE'S GOING TO STICK A TUBE 17,000 FEET UP YOUR BEHIND!'

 

I left Andy's office with some written instructions, and a prescription for a product called 'MoviPrep,' which comes in a box large enough to hold a microwave oven. I will discuss MoviPrep in detail later; for now suffice it to say that we must never allow it t fall into the hands of America 's enemies.

 

I spent the next several days productively sitting around being nervous. Then, on the day before my colonoscopy, I began my preparation. In accordance with my instructions, I didn't eat any solid food that day; all I had was chicken broth, which is basically water, only with less flavor. Then, in the evening, I took the MoviPrep. You mix two packets of powder together in a one-liter plastic jug, then you fill it with lukewarm water. (For those unfamiliar with the metric system, a liter is about 32 gallons.) Then you have to drink the whole jug. This takes about an hour, because MoviPrep tastes - and here I am being kind - like a mixture of goat spit and urinal cleanser, with just a hint of lemon.

 

The instructions for MoviPrep, clearly written by somebody with a great sense of humor, state that after you drink it, 'a loose watery bowel movement may result.' This is kind of like saying that after you jump off your roof, you may experience contact with the ground.

 

MoviPrep is a nuclear laxative. I don't want to be too graphic, here, but: Have you ever seen a space-shuttle launch? This is pretty much the MoviPrep experience, with you as the shuttle. There are times when you wish the commode had a seat belt. You spend several hours pretty much confined to the bathroom, spurting violently. You eliminate everything.

 

And then, when you figure you must be totally empty, you have to drink another liter of MoviPrep, at which point, as far as I can tell, your bowels travel into the future and start eliminating food that you have not even eaten yet.

 

After an action-packed evening, I finally got to sleep. The next morning my wife drove me to the clinic. I was very nervous. Not only was I worried about the procedure, but I had been experiencing occasional return bouts of MoviPrep spurtage. I was thinking, 'What if I spurt on Andy?' How do you apologize to a friend for something like that? Flowers would not be enough.

 

At the clinic I had to sign many forms acknowledging that I understood and totally agreed with whatever the heck the forms said. Then they led me to a room full of other colonoscopy people, where I went inside a little curtained space and took off my clothes and put on one of those hospital garments designed by sadist perverts, the kind that, when you put it on, makes you feel even more naked than when you are actually naked.

 

Then a nurse named Eddie put a little needle in a vein in my left hand. Ordinarily I would have fainted, but Eddie was very good, and I was already lying down. Eddie also told me that some people put vodka in their MoviPrep. At first I was ticked off that I hadn't thought of this is, but then I pondered what would happen if you got yourself too tipsy to make it to the bathroom, so you were staggering around in full Fire Hose Mode. You would have no choice but to burn your house.

 

When everything was ready, Eddie wheeled me into the procedure room, where Andy was waiting with a nurse and an anesthesiologist. I did not see the 17,000-foot tube, but I knew Andy had it hidden around there somewhere. I was seriously nervous at this point. Andy had me roll over on my left side, and the anesthesiologist began hooking something up to the needle in my hand. There was music playing in the room, and I realized that the song was 'Dancing Queen' by ABBA I remarked to Andy that, of all the songs that could be playing during this particular procedure, 'Dancing Queen' has to be the least appropriate. 'You want me to turn it up?' said Andy, from somewhere behind me. 'Ha ha,' I said. And then it was time, the moment I had been dreading for more than a decade. If you are squeamish, prepare yourself, because I am going to tell you, in explicit detail, exactly what it was like.

 

I have no idea. Really. I slept through it. One moment, ABBA was yelling 'Dancing Queen, Feel the beat of the tambourine,' and the next moment, I was back in the other room, waking up in a very mellow mood. Andy was looking down at me and asking me how I felt. I felt excellent. I felt even more excellent when Andy told me that It was all over, and that my colon had passed with flying colors. I have never been prouder of an internal organ.
