Topper review....

One night on a memory topper is not enough time for a review....is it?? Well no, it ain't.....but let me tell ya what it's like to sleep pain free for a few hours.

I was sit'n/lay'n on the couch last night....flip'n channels an' stuff. My chin was bounc'n off'n my chest, head bob'n ever direction....I was get'n ready for a late evening nap. The day's events were fading away. Ain't nuttin on TV, it's 10:30 oclock, may as well go to bed an' try out that new topper. Sadie Mae jump up there an' stop dead in her tracks. She was walk'n on water or something like that. Ain't take'n another step. "Git out the way Sadie Mae....move".

While I think of it, Anony suggested if'n I leave the topper outside too long, that damn goat will get on it an' go to sleep. Yeah he did. Just lay there in the middle of it look'n at me, like..."what you want"? 

Hey, this feels pretty good, as I sink into the memory foam. Ajust the air in the Number bed an' rolls over on my left side. I don't sleep on my left side ya know. Makes my right hip feel like a "pain in the ass". But I don't feel nuttin. I rolls over on my back. I don't sleep on my back neither....no pain. Right side....no pain. What the hell, I always have pain when I go to bed. I'm test'n the waters with all this roll from one position to another. This is amazing.

My final roll over, my belly.....poooof, I'm dead asleep. Wakes up at 3:30am with my supper in my throat. "Did ya take yer meds Billy Bob"? Well hell no, I forgot. Gulp....I swallers my meds. Well, let's light up one an' think bout this while the meds do their thing. Back in bed, I'm out like a light.....pain free no matters how I lay. I'm danc'n on clouds an' dream'n of sugar plumbs.

I sleeped till 8:30 oclock this morn'n. Feel refreshed. Right hip a little stiff, less pain than usual. But it's there. "How bouts yer feet Billy Bob"? Well I want you lookie here, they ain't swolled up. Back to normal size, blood vessels stick'n out like they supposed to. Yeeee Haw....that all I can say right now.

Ok, so ya don't think a brand spank'n new can opener is excit'n. Well, it is to me. I been use'n the old one from when I live on the boat. That bout 15 years, it's time for a new one. Cain't wait to try it out....how bout we open a can of Spam for lunch? Well shoot, Spam has a pull thingy....I'll open it with the can opener anyhows.

Speak'n of "healthy foods", the old Billy Bob eat pretty darn healthy if'n ya ask me. I ain't a fruit person, but I eat vegetables. Get 'em fresh an' raw, cook 'em myself. For those what think I don't eat enough, I'll start eat'n vegs with my smothered in mushrooms an' butter medium rare steak an' drenched in butter salt an' pepper bake tater. Sounds like a deal to me. With my hot dogs, I'll put a heap'n spoon full of relish. Relish=vegetable (pickle). Damn, I like my hot dogs.

Ok, since my back don't hurt too much this morn'n, I'm gonna do some housework. Maybe even go to town with a hunnert pound of dirty laundry. Well....maybe not.

  2. Yay! for your pain free sleep! seriously.... I know how that is. you have a topper... I got the mattress and I guess that's why it took so long for that chemical smell to totally be gone! smelled like paint.

    Don't have much use for a can opener but I'm tickled to see you so happy about yours. I like it when old people find simple pleasures to be pleasurable

    pain free sleeping, relish on a hot dog, doing laundry or not, a glass of cold iced tea ... the windows open with a fresh breeze ... in AUGUST! It's 77 degrees! at 1:30pm ... ain't natural. but I tell you... talk about making an old person happy... man

  3. I'm glad your memory topper makes you sleep without pain. Your diet sounds pretty good to me - I'd say you should be as healthy as a horse!

  4. I'm glad you are able to sleep pain free. My back has been hurting and I keep telling it 'BB says you aren't supposed to start this until I turn 70' but it doesn't listen.

  5. Your having a good night's sleep makes me happy too - for you. I been thinking about one of them Memory Foam Toppers for a long time. Maybe now per your satisfaction I'll get one...when I can save the $100 for it.
    I know what excitement is about with a new can opener, mine is Hamilton Beach; after buying three non-electric and another electric, finally one that works like a charm. If electricity goes out, don't know what I'll do though; back to the peanut butter and crackers, I reckon.

    1. Well Sissy, that was only one night of good sleep'n. I'm think'n before I can make a claim that a memory foam topper means sleep, I'm gonna have to test it for bout a month. I hear some people had to put theirs in the dumpster 'cause they made their backs hurt worse. Sorry you have to "save" in order to be comfortable.

      Ha....electric can openers. Had one one time....drop it in the sink water. Never work again. Made bubbles in the water while it was burn'n up.....poooof, blowed a breaker.

    2. Well, doesn't everybody?

      Are you telling me the can opener is NOT electric?
      I can't find a workable hand cranked one...like that 69 cent kind I had bought in 1960. It was a real gooder one.
