Land Crabs….


Must be that time of the Year…I had gone to the VAMC today for some PT and a Walk in App. with the Pulmonary Doc’s….This is one of those Apps. that you make because you Canceled last months meeting…which in turn was a make-up meeting for the one the month before. That one was to go over my CT Scan….I figure if they don’t come looking for me, then there is NO problem…

So I get home, and it’s all quite, and I’m doing some Paper work @ the Man Cave Desk/Workbench/Dinning Table. And I hear a noise like something is Moving things around by the Cable and power Connectors…
A little bit later I hear a sound in the Kitchen, I looked around just in time to see my walker move ever so slightly…

I see a NEW Room Mate….

This Guy put up a Good Fight, But with my Superior Intellect, I was able to over power him. Waterboard him and send him on to Washington….

Maybe it is my EGO


Maybe it is my EGO, but I have been getting P*ssed Off Lately. I know that there is Nothing I can do about it alone. Except maybe Rant and Rage or Howel in the Wilderness.

But it’s more or less about the younger Generation Lack of concern about other People and their Lives. It seems that they Care Nothing about their Fellow Man. Just what they can get for themselves with little on No Labor…the Quick chuckle at someone’s expense, And the Hell with the Consequence…

Case in Point the Trevor Martin Case, and these Fools Setting Up a Phone Call from an Expert giving Testimony in Court. Making a joke out of our Court System of Justice….

Wether you Believe him or Not, Things like this just sets up an Appeal for him if he louses…and Cost the Taxpayer more Money…and It seems as if the Media, just keeps this Sh*t Up in Peoples Faeces….I am Open Minded to Funny things or should I say, I am more Liberal Minded then a lot of my Friends…but that is Stupid.    End of Rant….

Glub, glub…


That’s Miamiease, for can it ‘get’ any Wetter…We are entering into our Monsoon Season. And it can get worse for Me…the Sky is Falling or better yet the Bathroom Ceiling I have Black Mold Showing.

When I First moved in I Noticed some black spots on the ceiling, I thought it looked like someone had cleaned their Paint brush and they would cover it at a later time…Jan 13 Cieling
Of course the direction of my Vision has been downward as of late, so I don’t Trip or Tangle up in my Air Hose…But I should have been paying Attention to the other signs. My lack of Sleep and lack of Energy, but springing right back when out side.

What gave it away was seeing a Drop of Water on the Toilet Bowl Seat Cover. it could not have come from the Sink, I had not used it for a day. So now we look up…a Utility Box Cover Plate with a Drop of Water getting ready to disconnect and Drop.

So I Cast my Eye upon the Spot that I thought was Paint, and low, and Behold I had a Bumper Crop of Black Mold. One of the Worst Types I could run into with my COPD.

I got in touch with the Mangement Office, and they sent out the Maintainance Guys. They were able to Chop out what was Visible and put Fans up in the Crawl space…To Dry it out, and they will be back in the Morning.

Decorating the Man Cave…


As some of you may remember I moved the Man Cave Back in Jan. down to Ground Level. Getting  Too ‘Old’, and tough to drag the young one’s up. But I had to give up a lot of things…

Man cave

Some thing just can Not be Replaced…Ahh the Memories….Along with cretin Household Items. Had to go out and Purchas new Stuff…Like I don’t have enough stuff…And now living in a Ground level, we have Windows to contend with. These Windows were Designed to be removable if need be. Anyway the Apt. comes with Standard White Pull Down Shades. Cut by a 1st Grader with Round Nose scissors…Well I use to let the old Cave Woman worry about that Stuff…now I have too. I don’t know from Cafe Curtains, and Drapes w/ Valance…If it’s not in the Bluejacket Manuel, I don’t need to know it.

So being the Smart Guy I am, I just want to cover the Windows but still let Light In. And Not Spend a Lot of Money. The Owners Manual for this Place said I could not hang Sheets or blankets…

What I wanted was a Curtain…A Shower Curtain, But Not one of the Fancy Prints or the Heavy Duty VINYL Jobs. Somewhere in the Depths of my memory, I remember owning one such Item…opaque, That’s it. That’s what I Want and Need, but where to Find one of them. I did not remember where I got it. One of the Wenches must have bought it, and I installed it.
I bought one of the Heavy Vinly ones put it up on the Rod in the Window Casing, and fell asleep in the Man’s Chair. The AC was on Hi and as the Cave cooled down the casing shrunk down, causing the opening that supported the Rod to become Larger. Wich slipped and Fell on my Head. So now we knew that we must track down the Illusive Opaque Shower Curtain. But to my Surprise my Home Health Aid found them in the $ Dollar Store 2/$5…004
From the Outside you can see only Lights and Shadows..

From the Inside you can distinguish Colors, and the Brightness of the Sun.

Plus it keeps me from seeing the Storm Shields.

And as you can see it is Opaque that you can see something trying to sneak in…
