No water an' a leak'n seal

How do I say this and not offend anyone?
I appreciate all the comments on a cure for my leg cramps......BUT!!! I do not like water. I do not like Gatorade. I ain't drink'n nuttin I don't like....period, simple as that. So don't even mention water again, unless you are talk'n bout wash'n the car or tak'ng a shower.

Let me tell ya a little bout these painful leg cramps I get. If'n ya been read'n my blog long enough, you most certainly know I have back issues....nerves get'n pinched an' shit like that. You also know that most ever time I play a round of golf, I get leg cramps that night. That should tell you that my leg cramps ain't regular leg cramps. These suckers is what I call backwards leg cramps....not the regular kind what makes your toes bend down and calf muscles scream for relief. My toes go UP, tendons from my buttock cheeks to my feet get tighter than a fiddle string. Hurt like hell. I've got me a pinched nerve. Twisting my lower back into different positions relieves these "abnormal" leg cramps. But ya got to get it just right.

I was rather amused when Anony got hisself all piss off 'cause I don't like Garorade. Never did like the stuff an' probly never will, but that ain't no reason to get all pissed off. His comments are always welcomed at Billy Bob's Place.

Speak'n of anonymous commenters, do ya think you could put a name with your comments? Like at the end of your comment? That would be cool. 

Bianca. I like that name. "Sally & Bianca". Reminds me of Thelma an' Louise. Problem is I would misspell bianca 9 out of 10 times. An' the old Billy Bob ain't one for misspell'n words.
BJ. Since Trouble named the "billy bike", I considered her suggestion for the name of the new Jeep. I think I'll pass on this shortened version of "billy jeep". Reminds me of Billy Clinton when he was president a few years back.

I rekon I could put all the suggested names in my golf'n hat an' draw out a winner for a free trip to the Caribbean, or something like that. Well, maybe not a trip to the Carribbean, but maybe a fish'n trip....something like that. Of course, the winner would do the cook'n, wash'n dishes, have fresh coffee brewed before I get up, take Sadie Mae for her morning walks.....you know what I'm talk'n bout...a dream vacation. You think I'm kid'n don't ya? Well I ain't....applications accepted from 8am till 4pm. Ha ha...that was cool.

Oh my god, Joseph got the "billy jeep" all tore slap apart. Cost'n me all that pocket change I thought I saved. Ya see, he took it out for a test drive. Come back an' say there's a noise. Pull the back wheel off, the brake pads get'n low an' the axle seal is leak'n. Ok....how much that gonna cost? I done give the boy $300 for parts an' stuff an' I ain't got back no change. He pulled the axle last night an' is in Corpus Christi this morn'n get'n the new seal and bearing pressed on. He done did all the stuff I was talk'n bout yesterday, so there ain't much left to do. Well, we still have a tow bracket to order and install ($400 plus). * still think'n I can use the bracket off'n the "that jeep" * Modified of course.

A couple pics of the modification to fit "that jeep". Modified from a Ford Bronco II, "little red bronco"


Now that's what I'm talk'n bout...Billy Bob can modify anything.   

Now, bout this freak'n weather. I'm tell'n ya right now....don't never trust a weather forecast. I had frozed up water again this morn'n. Not even a drop come out my coffee water faucet. And it's freak'n cold outside, 34 degs. Expected to top out at 37 by afternoon. But then, do ya really trust a weather forecast?
I just look at the weather in Decatur, Alabama. Poor Barney gonna freeze slap to death. It's 22.5 degs there right now.
Grrrrrrrrr to the winter gods.

That's probly bout all I have to say this morn'n. Oh yeah, no leg cramps last night. But I did feel one com'n on. Twisted around in the bed an' cured that sucker up right now.

    1. Hi Dave.....thanks for the tip on pickle juice. I love the stuff. But....go back and read my self-diagnosis and solution to my backward leg cramps. No amount of pickle juice will cure a bad back. But it sure do tastes good.

  3. I get some anonymous comments that add a name to them, but I don't know why anyone, anony or not, would read a blog they really don't like just to make nasty comments. I'll never understand why some people need to ridicule others and hide behind a no-name comment. If ya can't say something nice, then don't say anything at all. How hard it that?

    1. I don't get many anony comments that are negative or nasty. When I do, I just delete them....but I don't like to delete comments.
      I do think it would be soooo freak'n cool to have a name to personalize an anony comment.

  5. My husband has bad leg cramps and he uses a product we order on line, its called Hyland's Leg Cramps with quinine. Works almost instantly, just put one tiny pill under your tongue and it melts quickly with no water. For really severe cramp you might take two.

  8. I get these dadblasted leg cramps, I read this in our local newspapter put a bar of soap under the sheets and put your feet up on them, it worked for me, of course I tossed and turned but it still worked for me, I drank so much dadblasted water I nearly stayed in the bathroom all night, I won't be doing that anymores..the soap worked good, maybe it is just the thought of the soap working, at least it was not the water and some pills the doctor tried to give to me..I read your blog and get a hoot out of your writings, hope the jeep is repaired and works great, from ms in the pacific northwest we are in a big drought and it looks like it won't be going anywhere, no precipitation, no water this summer, no snow no skiiers many are losing their incomes and work for the entire year, the weather is plum crazy, their are fires at the beach, oh, my goodness when it should be drizziling rain and snow too..what a world we live in nowadays, ciao!!!!!!:):):)
