There's a first time for everything

Mrs. AOW has gotten sick and tired of giving me manicures and pedicures. She's no good at it, anyway.  Hell, she won't even fool around with her own nails - much less mine!

Today, we're off to the nail spa for the first time for either of us. I hope that I can get into that pedicure chair!  I need a pedicure more than I need a manicure.

Mrs. AOW is going to let them experiment on me before she lets them do her nails.   At least the place she has picked has a great reputation.

9/11



I have not forgotten.

Have most Americans forgotten?

I hope that we don't get hit again today.   Or any day.

Man-cave access at last!

The local American Legion, veterans helping veterans, built me a wheelchair ramp so that I can get back into The Little House, which I used as my man cave.

I had my stroke there on September 15, 2009.

At last I can get back inside my man cave!

Mrs. AOW took these photos:

The reality


I hope that it doesn't come to that last one.

Actually, I've already been there but graduated to a mobility scooter.

I love my scooter.

But it has its drawbacks.

Yesterday I went out on my own on a little adventure down the bike trail. I decided to cross the bridge into the park. Damn. There was a dropoff, and I got stuck there. Mrs. AOW had to come to help me out of that rut. She couldn't lift the scooter, but she flagged down some people on the main part of the trail, and they got me up and running again. On my next trip out on the trail, I'll have to me more careful and watch where I'm going!

I got home long before Mrs. AOW did.  She had to hoof it, but I was zooming along back on the bike trail.

Smart cat!

One of Mrs. AOW's Facebook finds:


We once had a white cat a lot like the one in the video. She was the smartest cat ever!

Our scooterway and grill area

Decorate A Vet built this for us last year:


Mrs. AOW took the above photo just as the workers finished the surface area.

I'm enjoying being able to access the grill again!  We're planning to grill again this week, and I do all the grill food on my own.

I like being able to help Mrs. AOW with preparing meals.

Time for humor

With a hat tip to Woodsterman:


I haven't been blogging much lately. Just one of those things. Lots of coin shows to go to, plus Mrs. AOW has plans. We've been visiting the Smithsonian and getting out more for together-time quite a bit this summer.

Big mistake. For them, not us.

Barack Hussein Obama's refusal to go to the border shows him up for the hypocrite that he has been all along:


Maybe it's too far away from the November election for his mistake to matter.

On the other hand, it just might matter!

This border mess has put Obama and the Democratic Party at a disadvantage.

This is another result.

Power crazy politicians overreach every time.
