Like marks on a bedpost

By the way, the pic isn’t of my ankle. Look… I thought I would be able to get through the year relatively scot-free where it comes to surgeries… but luck wasn’t in my favor. Well I guess it would depend on if I go through with it or not. So I go to the foot and ankle specialist this morning. My right ankle/foot needed a bit more looking into since the prp session. Granted the…

This was a first

Originally posted 2019-06-07 13:35:08. Want to hear something funny? Ok… so after we left Saoirse’s veterinary appointment yesterday I stopped by one of my local grocery stores. I ran in the store to grab a few things like me some Cheerios and Dusty bread, burritos, poptarts and good Lord this kid can eat. I was checking out and needed to grab a bigger cart so I could fit all those last minute items in a…

Luke Gage CTE Diagnosis – Marvel Comics

Originally posted 2018-08-16 09:16:38. “Luke Cage is an amazing character, and I’m honored to create an original story that takes him in a completely different direction. He’s almost impossible to defeat physically, so it took me a while to realize that perhaps the biggest challenge he could have to overcome would be something internal. And after doing research and talking to specialists about CTE incidents amongst football players and soldiers, it seemed natural that it…

Boot Feet Suck

Originally posted 2018-08-07 11:23:06. Ever since my husband’s active duty days in the Marine Corps he has had what we like to call as “boot feet”.  – Docs ( or medics ) repeatedly tell them to change their socks. That is why alot of times one of the most requested items in care packages would be socks.  My husband has tinea pedis better known as athlete’s foot but nothing seems to work on them at…

Saoirse’s Update

Originally posted 2019-06-06 12:00:51. As of June 6 2019 They estimate her birth was 12-18-2018. Remember I said Saoirse had been hit by a car at some point in her young life? Well…. her injuries are a bit more extensive. Her left hind knee/joint was completely shattered. Her left hind leg is shorter than the right. She can’t straighten that leg assuming at this point because of her knee/joint. Forgive the terrible image. We scheduled…

She’s so picky

Originally posted 2022-03-11 15:54:50. Saoirse is such a picky eater, much less a picky dog in general. Must be from her being hit by a car in her young development. Or maybe it’s just Saoirse. There are times when she sniffs her food and walks away then the next day she’s eating some of it. Maybe she’s in pain and not hungry. Maybe she doesn’t particularly like the food we purchased. I don’t know but…

This is hilarious!

Originally posted 2018-01-06 15:12:35. WARNING FOR ALL MALES Last weekend I saw something at The Gun Show that sparked my interest. I was looking for a little something different for my wife Dana. What I came across was a 100,000-volt, pocket/purse-sized Tazer. The effects of the Tazer were supposed to be short lived, with no long term adverse affect on your assailant, allowing her adequate time to retreat to safety…?? WAY TOO COOL! Long story…

Most Annoying?

Originally posted 2019-06-04 20:28:13. Did ya’ll hear about this? What’s your opinion on it? Mine, depends on the situation but I mean if done as a joke and depending on what other kids may have gotten too. We don’t necessarily shield Dusty from life where he doesn’t experience it like other kids. We wanted him to have a semi-normal childhood. His classmates and schoolmates knew he had special needs and they joked with him but…
