End of Summer

I grew up in Southern California. Of course, I had a lot of albums and singles from the Beach Boys:

Time For Humor

Steve, my good friend who takes me to the VFW, told me the following joke:

A little girl was saying her prayers night one night and said, "God, please send clothes for the women on Daddy's computer.

The miracle of modern medicine!

The Bioness System:

I have made excellent progress with the cuff below the knee -- the best of anyone else they've ever tried that cuff on this many years after a stroke.

In a few weeks, the PT therapist will try the thigh cuff.

Wish me luck!  If I become the bionic man, my life and Mrs. AOW's life will be so much better!

Democraps are idiots!

Former Secretary of State says, "Blame Bush forever!"

How do they think up this CRAP?

This is going to be one helluva ride to Election Day 2012.

I Want to See this Movie!

Mrs. AOW has found out where the movie is playing near us, so we'll go this coming weekend or next week.

We are planning a Crown Vic scooter outing now that Mrs. AOW has had her scooter lesson:

Road trip! But a short one.

A Day Out With Family

Yeah, I'm up early this morning. Here's why.

Mrs. AOW's cousin has a backyard swimming pool something like the one below.  Except that there is a built-in table with umbrella on on side.

This afternoon, Mrs. AOW is hauling me out there for an afternoon in the pool.  It's a heated pool.   

Mrs. AOW rolls my wheelchair up to the edge and dumps me in. It's sink or swim!  Getting me out is hell, but Mrs. AOW's cousin is a Marine and strong enough to lift me if I'm stuck.

Back to Stroke Therapy

These days, I barely have any time for blogging.

As of August 8, I am getting PT and OT again after over two years of no therapy.

At least twice a week, I go to an outpatient therapy center at one of the hospitals here. This particular center is relatively new and trying to make a name for itself.

I'm working hard and hoping for some real progress so that we can get rid of the potty chair in the living room.

True dat!

With thanks to Big Bubba:

Tale Of Two Doctors

Two patients limp into two different medical clinics with the same complaint. Both have trouble walking and appear to require hip surgery. The FIRST patient is examined within the hour, is x-rayed the same day and has a time booked for surgery the following week.

The SECOND sees his family doctor after waiting 3 weeks for an appointment, then waits 8 weeks to see a specialist, then gets an x-ray, which isn't reviewed for another week and finally has his surgery scheduled for 6 months from then pending the review boards decision on his age and remaining value to society.

Why the different treatment for the two patients?

The FIRST is a Golden Retriever taken to a vet. The SECOND is a Senior Citizen on ObamaCare...

In November if Obama and his Czars get another term we'll all have to find a good vet.

More Humor

With thanks to Big Bubba, who emailed this joke to Mrs. AOW:

The Gold Urinal

Before Obama was elected President he went to see Bill and Hillary for some campaign advice, at their spacious home.

After drinking several glasses of kool-aid, he asked Bill Clinton if he could use his personal bathroom.

When he entered Clinton 's private toilet, he was astonished to see that Clinton had a solid gold urinal! Wow!

That afternoon, Obama told his wife, Michelle, about the urinal. "Just think,' he said, 'when I am President, I too could have a gold urinal. But I wouldn't have something so self-indulgent!"

Later, when Michelle had lunch with Hillary, she told Hillary how impressed Obama had been at his discovery of the fact that, in his private bathroom, Bill had a gold urinal.

That evening, when Bill and Hillary were getting ready for bed, Hillary smiled and said to Bill:

"I found out who peed in your saxophone."

Off To A Car Show!

Mrs. AOW here.

For the first time since Mr. AOW had that terrible brain hemorrhage in 2009, he's going to a car show with the Mustang!

Make My Day!

Clint Eastwood, a California patriot, has endorsed Mitt Romney for President:
The Oscar-winning director and longtime movie star says he's endorsing the Republican presidential candidate.

Eastwood tells The Associated Press that he's backing Romney because, in Eastwood's words, "I think the country needs a boost."
"Boost" is an understatement!

Clint Eastwood's political views are a mixed bag, but he knows that America needs to get Obama out!

Make America's OUR day by voting Hussein out!

Another Day at the Coin Show

Tomorrow I am going to the local coin show again.   I'll be spending about 5 hours at the show.

My last trip to the coin show was in May.

I'm looking for specific coins this time:

1. 1942P proof war nickel

2. 1995 double-die penny

3.  7 -over-8TF (tail feather) Morgan silver dollar

4. 1931S cent

I may not find all of those coins in the grades I'm looking for. Also, Mrs. AOW doesn't let me take a credit card or the check book.

I'm not looking for any Christmas presents this time around.

Time for Humor

A trooper pulled a car over on a quiet country road. As he walked up to the driver, he said, “Excuse me, ma’am, but why were you driving erratically? You were weaving all over the road.”

“Thank goodness you’re here, officer!” she gasped. “I almost had an accident. I looked up, and there was a tree right in front of me. I swerved to avoid it but there was another tree. I swerved to avoid that one and there was another. It was terrifying!”

Calmly, the officer reached through the window to the rearview mirror and said, “Ma’am, there was no tree. It was your air freshener.”

(from Page-A-Day Calendars)

I hate those pine-tree air fresheners for cars.
