MARCH 29 2017

IF MARCH GOES OUT LIKE A LAMB, THIS ONE IS GOING OUT LIKE A SOAKING WET  ONE.. WE HAVE NOT HAD A "GULLY WASHER" LIKE THAT IN  A LONG TIME.

ALONG WITH MY COMMENTS ON DOG KNEES AND LIGAMENTS.... LAST NIGHT MAIL CALL, I TOLD HOW I HAD 2 SORE KNEES-- AND WENT TO "THE KNEE DOCTOR"   WHO SAID I NEEDED SURGERY.. I DID NOT LIKE THE IDEA OF BOTH KNEES DONE AT THE SMAE  TIME,... SO HE DID ONE -- WHICH HURT-  BUT BY THE TIME THAT SURGURY STOPPED HURTING THE SECOND KNEE WAS FINE TOO.  MADE ME WONDER....BACK IN OLDE  YANKEE DAYS OF BUILDING  STONE WALLS AND SHUCKING CORN... WHAT DID THEY DO WHEN THEIR VERY SURVIVAL DEPENDED ON THEIR PHYSICAL WELL BEING??    HOW MANY BRAVE PEOPLE FORGING TO COLONIZE "THE WEST"  HAD TO DEAL WITH SORE KNEES AS THEY WERE THE FIRST TO CROSS THE MISSISSIPPI--- WHILE NOT REALIZING THE HUGE BUNCH OF MOUNTAINS THEY HAD TO GET OVER SO THEY COULD SIT IN TRAFFIC IN LOS ANGELES.

BEFORE YOU THINK I AM  SUSPECT OF THE "MEDICAL MEN" HUMAN, CANINE , OR EQUINE..... I DID DECIDE I DID NOT NEED TO TAKE SOME MEDICINE PRESCRIBED FOR ME BEDAUSE OF SOME SIDE EFFECT...  THAT DID NOT WORK.... BIG TIME.... THE MEDICINE WAS DILANTIN  TO CONTROL SEIZURES, AND AFTER 2 DAYS WITHOUT IT, I ENDED UP STANDING ON MY HEAD IN THE CORNER AND HAD TO GO ANOTHER  BOUT OF NO DRIVING TIL I GOT STABLEIZED AGAIN.. NOW WHEN I TRAVEL, EVERYONE TRAVELING WITH ME CARRIES SOME DILANTIN...

HAVING SAID ALL THAT.......THERE ARE THINGS THAT MAKE ME WONDER....  THE REASON MAY BE THAT THERE ARE BETTER ANTIBIOTICS NOW.... BUT.... WHEN I WAS A KID, HAVEING YOUR APPENDIX OUT WAS  A PRETTY NORMAL THING-- I WAS THE ONLY KID I KNEW THAT DID NOT HAVE AN APPENDIX OPERATION....
AND PEOPLE UNDERGOING ANY OPERATION WITH ANESTHESIA HAD THEIR APPENDIX TAKE OUT  JUST IN CASE...

SO.... MO.. OUR MULE...PROBABLY HAD A CHUNK OF HAY STUCK--WHEN OUR USUAL VET WAS ON VACATION....SO THE "ON CALL"  VET WASHED  IT DOWN WITH A GALLON OF MINERAL OIIL-- IN THE PROCESS OF LOOKING  IN MO'S MOUTH, SHE DISCOVERED WOLF TEETH- AND STARTED TO SUGGEST I SHOULD HAVE THEM REMOVED..  AND MAYVE I SHOULD TALK TO BRYAN ( OUR  USUAL HORSE VET) ABOUT TAKING THEM OUT-  UNLESS I AM MISTAKEN, REMOVAL OF WOLF TEETH IS SOMETIMES DONE WITH  FANCY HORSES LIKE THE ONES WHO RUN IN THE KENTUCKY DERBY.  JUST IN CASE THE TEETH SHOULD INTERFERE WITH THE  FANCY BRIDLE AND BITS/.

SINCE WE HAVE NO INTENTION OF RACNG MO INTHE DERBY, I WOULD HOPE BRYAN-- WHO KNOWS US WELL- WILL OPT NOT TO EVEN SUGGEST IT.-- MY HIGH OPINION OF BRYAN WILL DROP CONSIDERABLY IF HE EVEN MENTIONS IT.
****
THEN THERE IS THE BIT OF TRYING TO BUY A HORSE.... AND  HIRING  AN EQUINE VET TO  "VET" THE HORSE ( IS THAT WHERE TH E POLITITONS GET THE EXPRESSION  VETTED ???)   I HAD QUITE A FEW HORSES VETTED BEFORE I REALIZED THEY WERE ALL GOING TO TELL ME THE HORSE IS "PRE- NAVICULAR" ( SORT OF AN  ARTHRITIS OF THE FOOT KIND OF THING. )-- THEY WOULD NOT STICK THEIR NECK OUT T SAY THE HORSE WAS "SOUND"  -- SO THE NEXT TIME I WAS LOOKING AT A HORSE ( FOR JANINE) I CALLED ON THE "OLD GUY"   DR. CONNIE THIBEAULT  WHO WENT WITH ME- AND WE LOOKED... HIS QUOTE WAS PRICELESS.. "I AM NOT GOING TO TELL YOU THAT HORSE IS SOUND, BUT IF YOU DON'T BUY HIM, I WILL"  - SO I NAMED HIM "THAT HORSE"   AND JANINE RODE HIM FOR YEARS...

ALL HORSES ARE PRE NAVICULAR-- ALL HUMANS ARE PRE- ARTHRITIC-- AS ARE DOGS... SO WHEN SOMEONE OFFERS THAT AS A DIAGNOSIS, I STOP AND WONDER...  MY PRE ARTHRITIC KNEE IS JUST THE SAME AS THE  ONE THEY "FIXED" .   GOD BLESS MEDICARE--  WHICH IS A TOPIC FOR ANOTHER DAY...
****
? OLD = VULNERABLE?

AS FOR THE OUTFIT WHO SENT ME 7 BOTTLES OF STUFF TO MAKE ME LOOK YOUNGER....  AND CHARGED MY CHARGE CARD $199.15----I FINALLY  GOT A NOTICE THEY CREDITED MY ACCOUNT- AFTER I TOLD THEM I HAD NO INTENTION OF PAYING THE E$10 PER BOTTLE  "RESTOCKING  FEE"  ..
As per our phone conversation of today we have issued a credit to you for your purchase of Forskolin Youth Secret.
** 
 AND I DID CALL THE REPAIR COMPANY WHO'S GUY TOLD ME MY $1500 WASHER WAS NOT WORTH REPAIRING AND BUD FOUND A SPLIT IN A HOSE THAT COST $13.10 .  I WOULD BE REALLY ANGRY IF I DID NOT HAVE A USE FOR THE WASHER IN THE LAUNDRY BUILDING -- TEH COMMERCIALL WASCOMATT WASHER IS -NOISY, SMELLY, AND RUSTED THRU.... BUT WE WILL STILL TAKE IT APQAT AND SEE IF IT CAN BE REJUVINATED...  IN THE MEANTIME MY HOUSE WASHER HAS BEEN REPLACED WITH A GENERIC GE-- FOR THE MICE TO FEAST ON... JUST AS SOON AS I FIGURE OUT HOW TIO RUN IT.
****
 ANNE AND I HAVE FINISHED A COUPLE GRANT PROPLSALS--   IF ANY OF YOU KNOW OF A GRANT  FOR WHICH WE MIGHT QUALIFY, GIVE US THE WEB SITE AND WE WILL LOOK...  READING ALL THE POSSIBLE ONES IS VERY TIME CONSUMING...
****
SUNDAY IS SHATTING SUNDAY--- WE ARE DOING VERY WELL--KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK...
****
AND SO IT GOES...
