HEY....it's Billy Bob

Just 'cause I'm "stuck in Georgia" don't mean I have kick the bucket an' don't read blogs an' think bout ya an' wished I was back in Texas an' was catch'n me some big 14 pound bass fish. It's very very hard to make a blog post while you're watch'n some crap on the TV an' sleep'n your life away. My God, I cain't believe how much time I spend in a deep slumber....long daily naps.

Holy crap....it's white outside.I was sit'n here watch'n some crap on the TV last night an' Sadie Mae says...."I gotta go pee". I open the door an' lo an' behold, it was snow'n. Weather guy was right for a change. Temp had dropped down to bout 20 degs as the latest storm passed through. It's right at noon as I type this, an' the temp is still bout 27 degrees...an' the snow is still on the ground.
 Them are Sadie Mae tracks. Poor ol' Leonard took one look outside an' says...."I ain't hav'n none that stuff". But he did go outside this morn'n for no more than 3 minutes.

There has been absolutely nuttin excit'n to write about. But you already knew that. Medical issues can sure mess up a persons life, if'n ya know what I mean. I'm only gonna take a minute of your time as we talk bout what ails me. I been feel'n pretty damn good for the last week or so. Other than this damn back an' hip. I ain't took none my stomach meds in almost 2 weeks. I feel no stomach issues, although I know they are still there. Just not as bad as before. The meds work....but...the side effects suck as bad as a flat tire on a John Deere lawn tractor.

The ol' lower back an' hip is still bout the same. A good dose of aspirin eases it up for a pretty good period of time. The aspirin also eats away at my stomach. So what do you do?

We, me an' Robert, are changing the location of my Mr Heater. Ya see, it sit so close to my recliner that it set the recliner cover thingy slap on fire while I was sleep'n. It weren't no big fire or nuttin like that, but it could have been. The new location will be much much more safer...away from any combustibles that could set "Sally da house" on fire. That's all I need at this time in my life.

It's been very cozy in "da house" with the low temps outside. I keep it right bout 74 degs at sit down level, but damn, my feet sure do get kind of on the cold side. Socks help a little bit.

I still hav'n me water heater problems. I done check an' adjust stuff an' the damn thing still red light on me. The spark igniter don't make as good a spark I think it should, so I'm gonna clean the black stuff off'n the electrodes. But...I reset the water heater 2 days ago an' the damn thing ain't red lighted one time. Go figger. I didn't fix nuttin but the damn thing is work'n....so far. Been 2 maybe 3 days.

I keep ask myself "what ya gonna do now" an' I don't come up with a good answer. Here's the deal. I would love to be in Texas.....but....in Texas I have no one to look after me if needed. I would be alone if'n ya catch my drift. Here in Georgia I have family close an' my needs are took care of right now. Shit like that will put you in a state of depression....although men don't do depression (macho thing).
I fount a piece of property. 2.8 acres with a 112 year old house sit'n on it. In need of remodeling. Not by me, but by Robert. Hmmmm....think of my RV shelter dream. I could always sell "Sally da house" an' move into the house with Robert an' Mandi. Just a thought.

Ok, I'm gonna leave it at that for a while. Will try to post more often.

  2. Glad to hear that you are still kicking to enjoy the snow. It is 50 with bright sun here. Nuttin happening here either. You know south Texas don't function below 60 degrees. This is the first time I have been able to comment on your blog in months. Have fun.

  6. I hear you. We sold our last RV and are sitting here in an apartment in Minnesota and I'm wondering what happened. Old age; that's what happened. How did I go from being a teenager to being old all at once?

  8. Sure glad to know you are still kick'n! Just commented on Barney's blog that I hoped you were OK. Understand very well where you are coming from re somebody to take care of you. You don't seem to be suffering too much what with the companionship, the nice heater, etc. I sure would appreciate more frequent updates. Like lots of other folks, I care.
