shaking my head...

always a day late....

I saw a 41ft Chris-Craft Commander Motor yacht sold at auction for 36,900.00.
The new owners put in 2 - 4D batteries and motored away.

Within the next 90 days, she sunk at her slip due to an leaking thru hull (broken off due to ham-fisted morons).

She's now for sale for the nominal sum of 84,900.00

sheesh. I need a nap.

So they spent $37 grand, sunk the boat, and now want a $50,000 profit for their salvaged boat?

Ain't it grand, free enterprise. (sigh.)

Giulietta,

it was sarcasm.

I'm about as good as I'm going to get.
I go to cardiac rehab 3 times a week to sweat with the old folks. It doesn't suck, but it just ticks me off to see a 70 year old woman thats had open heart surgery out run me on the treadmill.
At the end of January, they're thinking they want to put in a pacemaker/defibrilator...
To quote the cardiologist: "just to prevent that sudden death thing"...
well, what am I suppose to do until then, eh Dr. Welby? Stick an extention cord up my butt and hope for the best? Hmmm?

hey, its all good, New Years Eve, The Cuban and I are rafting up with a gaggle of sailboaters... What fun we'll have... boys, boats, broads,booze and...fireworks, what more could a man ask for?

"Stick an extention cord up my butt " ROFL, points for spirit!

Or as we say, "It's October, time to change the clocks, and the batteries in Dad and the smoke detectors!"

Next time you see the doc, tuck a long extension cord up your shorts and when you walk into the room, quickly plug it in. Tell him your insurance offered you a faster cheaper option.

And get me the picture of his face, wouldya?

paul..dayum..one day it is a 180' ice crunching beauty..the next, 41' of Chris...ya need to focus dude..i can't figure out if it's the cuban that is diverting your attention from the task at hand (or sneaking sammiches from WPB)..or the 13 y/o that still needs the 'dumb' knocked out of her (i love tying threads together for giggles...)..oh..and don't drink cheap wine...

By three methods we may learn wisdom: first, by reflection, which is noblest,second is by imitation, which is easiest,third is by experience, which is the bitterest.

No rehab today, I've got a MUGA test in an hour... That where the lesbian nazi nurses strap you up to a squirrel cage o'death treadmill hooked to monitors... Then they turn the juice on just to see how long it takes for me to fall over.

Last time they did this, I had another heart attack within 24 hours.
I think the Cardiologist needs more cash for his down payment on the 52 ft Valiant he's been talking to me about.

bastards.
(but its better than the alternative) being permanently horizonal sucks, so I've been told

So, If I'm not back on the board by late this afternoon, the obituary will be posted.

I'm radioactive...

It just keeps getting better...

after getting shot up with nuke juice and laying on a table for 10 minutes, the staff tells me not to make many plans next week, 'cuz I'll be scheduled for the pacemaker/defib.

My ejection fraction is 21%.. not good. Normal bodied adults average above 55%.

"just to prevent that sudden death thing"

I'm going to get a box of cheap "whine" and a smoke, then, I need a nap.

as such, my warm wishes, hopes and prayers will be with you heading into your surgery.
