Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well-preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways - Cabernet in one hand - chocolate in the other - body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming "WOO-HOO, what a ride!!"

Merry Christmas Doc

Wow what a week it’s been,stayed home from work Monday as I was down in my back and just rested.

I had a appointment already Tuesday for my annual physical. I have been taking cholesterol  meds for about two years,so after taking the stress test on the tread mill and about dying on it the doctor didn't like the way it looked. I had told him I had been having a “LITTLE “chest pain and a  “LITTLE “ short of breath when I would exert my self like doing a few flights of stairs. He said he want’s me to go see a   Cardiologists. This coming Tuesday I have a appointment for a all day test, I guess I go in the morning for couple hours and then take a break and come back in the afternoon for some more. Did I mention I was at the doctor’s office from 10 am till 1:30 pm and have had nothing to eat since the night before? This doctor’s office  is like a small hospital and very busy.

When I was doing the tread mill test the doctor notice a small spot on my arm and said he wanted a biopsy of it. So I had to make another appointment  for Wednesday the next day at 2 pm I was taken to my little room to wait for the doctor. After looking at all the magazine’s and sitting in this little room for about a hour I took some pictures with my phone. After a 10 min tops cut and burn I was out at 4 pm . 2 till 4 and I pay him?  

This is the small spot, I’ve had pimples bigger then this. But it is Christmas time and he does have kids to buy gifts for so I guess (I ) my insurance co. get to help pay for it. Merry Christmas doc.

All the tools to do this looks like they were going to take my arm off.

This machine is the one that gave me

The cigarette burn look.

He sent it off to have someone else look at it (More Christmas Money) and will let me know what it is .

Doctors office called with all the info on my blood test. Did I mention it took three people to get blood out of my arm? anyway she said everything look ok “BUT” the doctor wants me to take one more prescription every day for  high Triglycerides and three more fish oil pills a day. Think I will get a carp or two and just suck on them for the oil..

We will see what Tuesday brings.

Saturday Angela and I got the Christmas shopping  done and we (she) is finishing up on the detail’s.

We hope everyone has a good and safe week and a MERRY CHRISTMAS.

Oh Baby It’s Cold Outside

 

As we sit here in Kansas City another winter has arrived and it’s 5 deg. Every year it gets harder to take the cold and dark dreary days .    we are hoping and praying maybe one more winter after this one we can break free of the brick’s and stick’s life.

We love reading the blogs and seeing the pictures of our rving friends that are lucky enough to be staying and traveling  in warmer areas of the US and we are learning a lot from it.

It’s hard to believe it’s been just over a year ago that we started this blog and reading and getting to know other blogger's.

It’s also hard to believe we have 76 people who sign in to follow us. Just think if we had something really interesting to write about how many we would have following.

Anyway we thank all of you for leaving comments and being so nice to us as we get ready to hit the road and meet  up with you. Angela and I hope everyone has a safe and happy holidays.

Does Your Campground Have a BC?

Turn your SPEAKERS ON and click and watch this .

Just click on it  http://llerrah.com/viewcard.php?code=236079  

 

Ten Thoughts to Ponder 

number 10
Life is sexually transmitted.

Number 9
Good health is merely the slowest possible rate at which one can die.

Number 8
Men have two emotions : Hungry
and Horny. If you see him without an erection, make him a sandwich
.

Number 7
Give a person a fish and you feed them for a day. Teach a person to use the Internet and they won't bother you for weeks, months, maybe years.

Number 6
Some people are like a Slinky-not really good for anything, but you still can't help but smile when you shove them down the stairs.

Number 5
Health nuts are going to feel stupid someday, lying in the hospitals, dying of nothing.

Number 4
All of us could take a lesson
from the weather. It pays no attention to criticism.

Number 3
Why does a slight tax increase
cost you $800.00, and a substantial tax cut saves you  $30.00?

Number 2
In the 60's, people took acid to
make the world weird. Now the world is weird and people take Prozac to make it normal.

And The Number 1 Thought
Life is like a jar of Jalapeno
peppers--what you do today, might burn your ass tomorrow.


- - - and as someone recently  said to me :
"Don't worry about old age--it doesn't last that long."

The old man and his off spring Jessica and Blake . They were sitting around planning my funeral and where to spread my ashes. My kids are a little strange.

Jessica is helping me with the marketing of my jewelry  on Face Book http://www.facebook.com/home.php?#!/pages/Kansas-City-MO/Second-Time-Around-Art/161534647213627

Things Are Well In KC

Just a short note to let anyone who cares know that we are a live and well in Kansas City. The time change has really thrown me off bad this year for some reason, not sure what it is. Along with being busy at work, church things get real busy this time of year and will be till Christmas.

I have been spending any free time working on my jewelry and my web store. Have some new ideas on some new styles of jewelry I want to make, also been reading up on how and where to sell at craft shows. I think when we hit the road it well help the $$$$Bottom Line$$$$ if things don’t get better we will need it. 

I still try to make time to read and keep tract of my blog friends but if this work thing keeps getting in the way I may have to make some changes…

Hope everyone has a good week and keep writing about the good life and your travels, that keeps US going .

PRAYER FOR A SOLDIER

Thank you to all Vets for your service…

 

Prayer For A Soldier

 

If ever there was a time for a prayer to be heard.
And now is the time, to hear every word.
Now that our boys called soldiers have gone,
Please march with them and keep them strong.
Stand beside them if they have to fight,
And in the darkness be their light.
Don’t desert them, march in their faith,
So they’ll be here when the morning breaks.
Bring them home safe and sound,
Across the waters to peaceful ground.
Home to loved ones, mother’s wives, daughters, sons,
Bless them all, each and every one.
They stand for freedom and make our flag true,
These boys called soldiers for the red, white and blue.
A prayer for a soldier, please let it be heard,
And please Lord, hear every word.
A prayer for a soldier, with the job to be done,
Please bring them home, these soldiers your sons.
Please bring them home, the soldiers, your sons.

AMEN.

SECOND TIME AROUND ART

 

What a week it has been I have been working on my new web store.

It is on www.etsy.com if you look at my blog on the right side bar  you will see a few pictures or go to http://www.etsy.com/shop/SECONDTIMEAROUNDART

I have been working on making jewelry and putting the web store together and not being a computer wiz it took me a lot longer then most people.

Where was Rick  http://rickpaulettervjournal.blogspot.com/   when I needed him and his skills .

Here I’m racking my brain trying to figure out what to put where and how to get it there and then it was time to put pictures in and there went some more brain cells.

 

001

I finally got it up and running Wednesday I think and we have made 5 sales.

I still have some tweaking to do but so far not to bad I thought.

 

002

Please take a look and tell me what you think and if you have any ideas please let me know. I need all the help I can get.

AROUND THE HOUSE

Not sure how but I think during a windows up date it gave me the new Live Writer and I didn’t even have the old one figured out yet..

Our week went pretty much like every other. The weather here is getting cooler and the leaves getting prettier.

With the weather getting colder it make’s me want to hibernate and just sit in front of the TV and eat. It will be nice to hit the road and follow the sun and hopefully we will get more exercise.

We ( I ) need to get back to painting and fixing the house up even thought we have 1 to 2 years (leaning on the 1 year) to get it done,that time will fly by and as slow as were moving it will take 2 years.

  Angela got her new glasses we ordered for her birthday,she is so happy with them you would have thought I got her a new car.

I spent most of my weekend in my man cave working on jewelry,watching TV and having a few cold ones and yes I do invite Angela to come in as long as she behaves her self and not touch anything.

All the boxes are full and some new ones on top of the pizza oven. I’m working on a web site on http://etsy.com/   but that’s going about as slow as the painting. I think what’s happening is my job is getting in the way again.
