In case you missed my previous post, I broke/fractured a radial ulnar bone in my elbow less that 24 hours after being in Denmark. Went to the hospital their and the Danish doc said I had actually broken a piece off but it stayed in place so no surgery/pin required, only a sling for 3 weeks. Saw an orthopedic surgeon yesterday and he isn't sure if the piece actually broke off or if it was just a facture, but it's healing quite nicely and I'm out of the sling. Apparently too long in a sling can cause loss of mobility. Have to go back in two weeks for another x-ray to check on the progress of the healing, then probably again two weeks after that. Still have four weeks that I can't do anything weight-bearing with the arm, which is a pain in the gizzard, but at least I'm heading in the right direction.
Jerry, does he have any skin issues like scratching or rashes? This is indicative of food allergies as well. Jesse is allergic to chicken-he breaks out in eczema type rashes. We also didn't notice he was somewhat lethargic and had a "pained" expression on his face quite often. When we changed in to Blue Buffalo Salmon and Sweet Potato, grain free, his rashes stopped and he is the happiest little dog in the world.
Back from my trip to the above WONDERFUL countries. However, typing one-handed so I won't be posting much for a bit. In Denmark less than 24 hrs, fell at hotel, broke piece off radial ulnar (rounded tip at elbow). Piece stayed in place, no surgery, only sling for 3 weeks, will get recheck done here. Will post more about trip when typing is easier but will advise those who say NO WAY to European/Scandanavian travel like I used to-RECONSIDER. Much to experience and learn over there.
I'm willing to bet if you only feed your dog, dog food, the problem will go away. Poof, like magic, no more phffsts..
Oh, he who has obviously NEVER owned a bloodhound I beg to differ! Toby used to set off the carbon monoxide detector and he only ate dry food. One of our Springers should be sited for gas warfare-the other isn't bad-and they only get dry food.
Doug, I'd like to think sis isn't like that, but people do strange things, even those you think you can trust. When we call the alarm company, we will make it clear there should be no one in the house, as well as let our neighbors know.
2nd week of June is good. Bugs aren't bad, weather is usually dry, warm days, cool nights, and crowds haven't started yet. Lots of kids are still in school. Yup, 95 is the easiest way to get into the state-what roads you take from there depend on where you want to go.
So sis emailed today. She wanted to wish is bon voyage on our trip and she apologized for the "drama" from the other day. So I emailed back saying OK, no problem, let's move on. And now the fun part-and this has happened before. The little miracles start. Her landlord isn't going to evict her "just yet". The landlord's wife will help her pay her car payment this month so she doesn't lose it. And this is the norm. EVERY time she's up against the wall these little miracles occur-but she doesn't believe in "miracles" because they come from God and she's an atheist. But I didn't let her play me this time and although I don't feel the need for vindication I got it anyway. Thanks for everyone's support. It helps knowing so many understand.
Not ADHD but OCD as a kid most definitely. As she got older it got much better, but she's lived in CA for the past 30 years and I've only seen her a few times over the years. She had so many aspirations but then when I got pregnant (she's 3 years older) it seems she couldn't handle it, so she had a child out of wedlock and it all went downhill from there.
As far as her taking over my house-she'd have to take a plane from CA to MA (and she doesn't have rent money), pick a lock or figure out the garage door code, THEN figure out the alarm code. Once the police got there (they will have instructions through the alarm company that no one should be in the house) she'd have some major 'splainin to do but what the heck, more power to her. 3 square and a roof over her head because I won't bail her out!
I'm just amazed at how many on here think alike!
IMHO every adult on the trip who is capable of driving a vehicle should be familiar with driving the rig. But that's just me.
Agree 100% for reasons stated such as illness, etc. I'll drive anything-can't back up a trailer for spit, but our next rig will be a truck camper so no issue there. Had no problem with the Endura, either.
Question to you gents who claim your wife won't, is too nervous, etc. What's YOUR attitude when she's behind the wheel? Do you add to it by being a white-knuckle passenger, gasping if you think she's too close to the rail, yelling, criticizing, or otherwise adding to the situation? This is why when hubby and I teach firearm courses he is no longer allowed in the room when I am instructing (but we won't go there). Fortunately he's comfortable when I am driving.
Word of advice-have someone ELSE teach her how to drive the rig. Send her to RV or tractor-trailer driving school if there's one near you and you can afford it. There may be a time when both of your lives depend on it.
OK, so tonight I'm going to RANT. My sister-yes, that sister, the one who borrowed money again and again with promises, and yes never paid back, the one with the PhD and hasn't worked in forever because she comes up with excuses-texted me tonight. It said: no job, no money, no car, no home. Mind you she lost the car months ago, or so she told me. So, after years of her crying on my shoulder but not doing anything about her problems I texted back and said "where are you going to go?". So she called me and started blubbering on the phone and dropping hints. So I stayed calm and said "it's not like you didn't know it was coming". Well, she got mad and said "I can't deal with you know" and hung up. At first I got really upset thinking I'm a horrible person but then I got angry. Angry that she thinks I'm responsible for her (btw, I'm the "baby" sister that our parents said would never achieve much), angry that I'm feeling guilty over something that's not my fault, and angry that it seems every time I try to enjoy life (our trip to Denmark and Iceland is 10 days away) something smacks me upside the head and says "you don't deserve to be happy". Hubby's dad died 2 months before we got married, my mom died a month before my son was born, hubby's aunt died on Thanksgiving, SIL almost lost her baby 2 weeks before we got married-seems some of what should be some of the happiest times have been marred. But we cope, get over, and move on. And I'm going on my vacation dagnabit and I'm going to have fun! I know many people have it far worse than I do and I'm grateful for what I've got, but every once in a while that "what did I do to deserve this?" feeling hits me.
Rant 2: Bought a new glucose meter tonight. Blood sugar is up slightly and need to monitor better but old meter is somewhat clugey. Go to CVS, get new, small meter, lancets, and test strips. Don't have a script for the strips because the meter is new, so I coughed up $71.99 for them. OK, no biggie, hurts a bit financially but we can handle it. Get home, start to read manual and discover I need coding solution! Nothing on the box indicated this and I SWEAR their ad says no solution needed. Do ya think you could put a bottle in the box or at least a note on the outside saying you need it? My old meter had solution with it but it's expired.
OK, feeling much better now! Rant over!
Been there-I feel your pain. We've been very lucky since the end of March. It looks like we'll get a real spring this year. Last year the snow bank at the end of the cul-de-sac didn't go away until almost July. North country (northern New England) is still waiting for ice-out-they had more cold and snow than southern NE this year. But have heart-August IS only 4 months away! :B
Yes, you have recourse if you have paperwork from the dealer that states it's a 300 but the original paperwork says 275. That's called fraud. Bring it to their attention and see what happens. Start nice, then work from there. Do not be afraid to get the Attorney General's office involved. Not defending the dealer, but there are 2 things that possible could have occurred causing the confusion. 1, the people they bought it from lied, or 2, the engine was replaced somewhere along the way. Also do some research on the unit and see if it was ever sold with a 300. As others have stated some of the onus does rest on you but it appears the dealership committed a fraudulent act.
Hubby uses a Canon EOS7D with 100-400mm, 18-200, & 15-85 lenses, all image stabilized. However, it's apples and oranges as his is more of a professional set-up (starting to plan 2nd career) and much more expensive. Lenses are great for what you want to do. He suggested you look at the Canon Rebel. In his many years of experience, he's found that Canon quality and functionality are better value than Nikon. Very reliable and user friendly.
Bar Harbor KOA Oceanside very dog friendly.
Danforth Bay Campground, Freedom, NH very dog friendly, near white mountains, there's a doggie day care not far from the campground-can't remember name and can't vouch for it but I think it's on their website.
Wish he went the same as his brother.
Glad he didn't. We need to get as much info from him as possible to find out if there are others out there. If he died, he's a martyr. If he has to live in prison, in his culture that's a fate worse than death-that's failure. The mind is more important than the physical in this case.
