Well its Superbowl Sunday afternoon and finally it has quit snowing, we are loaded with snow banks, snow drifts and fields of snow. we have up to and over 175 inches of snow so far, Up on Tug Hill roads are narrow and snow banks are 15 to 20 feet tall in places. My "Superbowl Snack Tray" is gatorade, pop-cickles, Hot, Tea, Black Coffee, Water, Don't care who wins as long as its a good game!!

Not going to eat at this Picnic Table yet and tomorrow is "GROUND HOG DAY"

and "YES" there is a "Fire Hydrant" in that snow!!!!

Well it was a quiet weekend, we watched it snow all weekend and the Maintainence men sno-blow and plow all weekend.

I am pleased my Son is flying in from Portland Oregon tomorrow and hope to see him following surgery!!!

I pretty much rested up, took a few naps, and ate a lot of protien and have statred my PREP for surgery Monday, I am taking ducolax and Miralax and nowI will spend the next 4 -5 hours on the throne but this time I am ready as you can tell by the photo. I usually loose about 10 pounds following this procedure but as its water loss I gain it back fast.

I took my Honey to the Spine Center in Syracuse and we have to go back for some more MRI's and consultations to talk about back surgery for her. Why do doctors leave the room while you change?
They're going to see you naked anyway..

Mark in Texas is still going slow and steady!!!

Here are some thoughts to ponder!!!!!

If Jimmy cracks corn and no one cares, why is there a stupid song about him?

What disease did cured ham actually have?

Once you're in heaven, do you get stuck wearing the clothes you were buried in for eternity?

How important does a person have to be before they are considered assassinated instead of just murdered?

Why did Kamikaze pilots wear helmets ?

Did you ever notice that when you blow in a dog's face, he gets mad at you, but when you take him for a car ride, he sticks his head out the window?

Why does Goofy stand erect while Pluto remains on all fours? They're both dogs!

Do the Alphabet song and Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star have the same tune? Why did you just try singing the two songs above?

If electricity comes from electrons, does morality come from morons?

Why do toasters always have a setting that burns the toast to a horrible crisp, which no decent human being would eat?

If corn oil is made from corn, and vegetable oil is made from vegetables, what is baby oil made from?

If Wile E. Coyote had enough money to buy all that ACME crap, why didn't he just buy dinner?

Why do you have to "put your two cents in"... But it's only a "penny for your thoughts"? Where's that extra penny going to? ? Well on a more serious note ......

We have lost 4 more Soldiers from Fort Drum this week, all fine good young men, these men all had families, friends and I am sure plans for the future but it was not to be for they made sure they were there in harms way to follow orders and to give their all.

What a game it was! One of the best I've seen. Wow, at the snow there! Wish we could get a couple of snows before winter's over down this way, but it doesn't happen much.

I hope your surgery goes smoothly.

Well I guess you were happy with the game, it was a good game.
Love your throne, I see you were prepared while getting prepared.

Good entry.
Most of all want you to feel the prayers of all as you enter surgery.
God Bless you, the vet. and the rest of the Vets.
