I've graduated!

From this:

To this:

For big jobs, anyway.

This part of my stroke recovery has taken over 4 years.

Mrs. AOW is grateful, and my graduation has arrived in time for her birthday on Monday.

We are both looking forward to the day when our living room once again becomes a living room instead of a hospital room.

More stupid things that people say

From the Page-A-Day Calendar The 365 Stupidest Things Ever Said:
Christina Aguilera singing our National Anthem at the Super Bowl: What so proudly we watched at the twilight’s last reaming . . .

The Weakest Link host Anne Robinson: In U.S. history, during the Great Depression, parts of the Midwest afflicted by drought and high winds became known as the what Bowl?

Contestant: Super.

Does this make sense?

Canadians can’t purchase incandescent bulbs, but they can buy crack pipes out of vending machines.
It's this kind of crap that makes me try to avoid hearing or reading the news.

Unfortunately, Mrs. AOW keeps me informed.  She's a news junkie.

Still alive but in hibernation

Damn cold winter we're having here!

I managed to get out to a coin show last weekend. I made a few good buys, too! One of those good buys was a Walking Liberty Half, a coin that I particularly like.

Yesterday afternoon, Mr. AOW fired up the van and dropped me off at the local VFW. Not much of a crowd there, but still it's better to be out and about than moping around the house all day and all night.

Today I'll watch at least some of the Super Bowl. Mrs. AOW has laid in a supply of chips and salsa in case I want to stay home to watch the game.
