OK up date on things, Thursday I met with the neurosurgeon and we went over MRI's as I knew already I still have a small pocket of something down around where the sciatic nerve comes out, maybe infection, maybe some sort of damage caused a build up.   He sent me to get x-rays standing, bending over and bending backward to see if they were still properly attached.  Went to his office and we looked them over, good shape on that.  OK the plan is to go in and remove any infection and debris and free up the nerve, simple scope work, actually out patient if no surprises.  If things things go good my back should feel better than it has in over 20 years.  We do have to run the plan by heart Dr next week but we see no problems there. 

First date available was Oct 4 second Oct 23, I took the 23rd because on the 4th either Gopher Grease or Wymore Wrangle will pick me up or maybe on the 3rd, if the 3rd I will sleep on GG's coach, headed early morning on the 4th to cook for a home school group at RCS.  My buddy Norton may bring his wagon from OK< still up in the air.  If he comes they'll get me on the 4th if not then the 3rd and I will sit on a chair and point at what we need and it will be loaded.  IV people have said if still on picc line on the 3rd they will remove pump and cap the bag and hook back up on the 5th.  Neurosurgeon who has been on this since that day they carried me out in May and infectous disease people agree the extra 2 weeks will not be a big deal since I am no longer in danger of dieing from it, a mental health day like that before the winter sets in pretty much trapping me inside is worth waiting the extra 2 weeks if I'm willing.  I had to cancel my gathering last weekend due to myself and someone else's health problems and the price of gas.


Am working on taking a big step that could make me money but if it don't work will only cost me a few dollars.  Been doing a little research and if I post my cooking documents as a forward from that goup of mine I can count the people that opened them and read them.   Very interesting because the simpler ones get the most hits sometimes but not always.  The one that surprised me is the one I posted on 3 groups Thursdqay a little bit before noon, baked mac and cheese in a dutch oven, at noon yesterday it had 1100 opened it up and read it or at least looked at the picture. m Doing some proof reading and hope by next weekend to have several up, not going to saturate at first.   Cost it only 20 cents to put it up for down load, one time fee on each .  They take only 5% and pay when they sell each one, can use bank account, Pay Pal or reloadable Visa, the way I'm going to go, wife said I can have a $25 dollars to see if it works, I'll just skip the cashews and I have plenty of coffee yet so will not have to dig in to other stuff.  Maybe I'll play sick and let her go to Costco by herself. ;D   We will see, I'm planning on $5 one each recipe document less than a lot of recipe stuff but sometimes it's best to sell more for less money because the bottom line looks better.  we will see.

Looking good Major! Well, shot decently yesterday, temps were in the upper 80s and we had a breeze, so not too bad. Today, well, that's another story. We will start at 2pm and it is supposed to hit 97-98 today. Taking along a cooler with Gatorades in it! Picked up a little Rossi 92 yesterday, been looking for one for a while for my g'nieces and g'nephew to learn on.

My wife and I received the third Covid booster shot this past Monday. She tested positive on Tuesday. I tested positive this morning. So far, the effects are relatively mild, sort of like a head cold. From what I've read getting a Booster shot is not supposed to make you test positive. We live in a 55+ community and received the shots at our theater. We were one of the few wearing masks?

 I talked to John yesterday, "his wife is feeling better",
We didn't talk long because
 he is getting along with raspy cough and sore throat; he still has his taste & sense of smell though.
