PostYour Friend in Texas

Howdy from Texas, All Y'all!


OK, enough Fake TexSpeek.

This is a Blog like Topic, I will post a few things that I am thinking about. My intention is to have a general Conversation with all of you. I don't intend this to be about Gaming, Modding or Voice Acting, this is for stuff that doesn't fit any where else here in the Saloon.

If you have questions or comments about anything posted here, well that is what this is, a conversation.

If you want to talk about something not mentioned here, well this is the place, I will talk about what ever, so go ahead and jump in.

This Conversation will not be about anything Political, or very controversial, if we want to talk about Politics, there are a lot of very well run Political WebSites run by some very well educated, Political Historians, and Political Scientist, and they do their homework before saying anything. I may mention something, but I don't want to get deep into stuff like that.

I will use the Spoiler function to save space in overly long Post, I get way too long winded a lot, so if you want to read the long version, just click on the Spoiler tag. See below:

Well after that, I will tell you a little about me:

Mr. K for some reason it isn't showing up. Maybe Rag needs to set you up a suite. Ask him. I don't remember how Worm did it for me. Wormhole can be hard to navigate and I am not sure who can see the VIP suites. I don't think it is public. Members only if I recall correctly. Check with Rag.

Hi Nakia;

That is weird, I can see, and read your Suite. I will check to see what I can find out, sometime today.

Thursday, I need to go to Austen to take my Father-in-Law to a Dr.'s appointment, and that will take all day, maybe I can check in on my phone.

Hi Everybody;

I had a good long drive yesterday, and it all went well.

My Father-in-Law is doing pretty good for an 85 year old. He works in his garden everyday, he has harvested a few tons of tomatoes this last season, he had Watermelon at Thanksgiving, and yesterday he planted some onions, and the 2 of us dug up some very nice carrots. My Mother-in-Law has picked up and given away several bucket fulls of Pecans. They have 4 or 5 big Pecan trees around their house. At the Dr. in Austin, my Father-in-Law was very funny, joking around with everybody. After the Dr.'s Visit, we all went to a very nice Tex-Mex Restaurant. I my Mother-in-Law insisted on paying, and my Wife insisted on paying... well my Mother-in-Law won this round, and I just grinned. I almost licked the platter, it was that good.

I drove both ways, and it was a nice drive, except for the traffic in Houston, it was very bad at 7pm, just normal Rush Hour. The 3 fastest growing cities in the US are all in Texas; San Antonio 3, Houston 2, and Austin is the fastest growing city in the US. I drove through 2 of them yesterday. Lots of new construction, and traffic. Lots of promise of a growing economy, even with the millstone of the rest of the country hanging over us. But that is Politics in the US for you.

Anyway, Life is Good.

Hi Mr. K,

I am glad you had a good trip. Your Father-in-Law sounds like fun. Those veggies sound wonderful. Fresh pecans, I wonder what they taste like. I have only had store bought ones.

Of course Texas has the three fastest growing cities. Its economy is good so people are moving there. You may need to succeed from the Union so you can keep people out before Texas turns into one gigantic metropolis and traffic jam. At least you won't need to change your flag.

Hokay, Mr. K,
You did it again. I booked marked the page and just a little while ago wanted to look up a word. Half an hour later I force my self away from the site. Got distracted with a word game. Found a new word though, a good word.

Antipathetic: means opposed, averse, or contrary.

Usage: Nakia is antipathetic to being told what to think or say.

Yes Nakia;

It's good to do your own Thinking. I try to do that, but it often gets me in trouble.

But you know, we got to keep the Trolls down, can't let them get control.
They can mess-up a $2 Pork-Chop, and blame it on the Dishwasher!

Yep, Mr. K,

Sometimes silence is golden and sometimes salience is agreement even when you disagree. The trick is choosing between them I am serious when I say that in Religion 101 I was taught that it can be morally right to break an unjust law if you are willing suffer the consequences.

Did you see Sinder?bones post on Wormhole? Evil or Very Mad We had him going for a bit but it made him really listen to my recordings. That was fun. Can't do that again though we will have to think of something different. Wormhole will never know what hit them. Oh by the way have noticed but I don't think they have serious discussions except about modding. We can relax and enjoy life.
Nakia who is rather tired after a long night.

Thanks Mr K and Nakia for putting my voice up on Wormhole. I'm still pretty poorly and have next to no voice, but feeling a little better than I was.

Wormhole VA looks to be a lot of fun and they come across as a nice to know bunch.

They are a great bunch of people. In the past I have never been as active there as I wanted. Too many distractions. This project of theirs is a real gift. I think we will have a lot of fun and be able to help them while having it.

Hi Nakia and Sue;

Yep, Fun to be had by All.

I got to resist talking Politics, I always get too long winded, and I sound too defensive.

Mr. K,
I think you are safe here to talk politics as long as it is general. Talking politics is not the same as arguing politics. In fact I will give you a quote made by an Italian which is rather apopro to a recent discussion that got us both in trouble. See if you know who the author was.

Hi Nakia;

Benito Mussolini, I think without looking this quote up.

Hi Chris;

I am well, but my Dog is in some trouble, and I need to take him back to he Vet.

OK, Everybody, I may be gone all day, my Dog started having hip trouble a few weeks ago, the Vet says it is Hip dysplasia. And he has been unable to poop, so now he is servilely constipated, and that can kill a Dog. Hopefully the Vet can get things moving and clear this up. I went to physical therapy today, and the Chiropractor told me about a Vet that specializes in helping Horses and Dogs with spine and joint manipulation, just like a Chiropractor can for Humans, I may have to give that Dr. a try, after the Vet clears up the gut trouble, to help the Hip to feel better. I have a lot of questions about how to proceed with taking care of my Dog. It kills me to see him suffer.

Got to go...

The doggy chiropractor may recommend swimming. Sometimes they have a pool especially for dogs.

I hope things improve soon, your poor dog must be uncomfortable.

Hi Everybody, and Thanks;

My Dog Ryelee's trouble turned out to not have anything to do with his hip. He is a very sick Dog, he has a very bad Urinary Bladder infection. The Vet examined him, his Potassium level was morbidly high, and he had a bad infection of some kind, so she sent us ASAP, to a different Vet, and called ahead to get the specialist Vet ready to take care of Ryelee. We went directly to the specialist, and they took him in quickly. Wile I filled out the paper work someone told me they where using ultrasound to make sure his bladder had not burst yet. In examining him, they found that he may have had a very odd Hernia involving the bladder, and his Prostrate was very swollen, blocking urine flow. A few other things sounded bad too, I forget the details. They started IVs with fluids and antibiotics, and where monitoring his hart due to the extreme Potassium level, which can cause hart attacks. After a wile, they took me back to see him and talk about the options, and there findings so far. He was laying on a nice blanket and 2 people where on the floor with him being very nice and watching him, The Dr. told me he was very sick, and that it would be very expensive (I knew that already). She told me about what they knew so far, and that they would try to put a catheter in to drain the bladder. He stayed with them and latter the Vet called me to tell me Ryelee was doing better, the catheter was in and draining the bladder, and his Potassium level was back down to a closer to normal level.

I am going in about 2 hours check on him, and figure out what is next. I sure hope the money holds out, or at least the credit cards. This will cost me at least $3 to 5 thousand, even if everything works out in the next day or so, and that is not likely.

Anyway, I have a lot to do today other than things for Ryelee, and I needed to do some VAing, but there is no time for things like that. Katie's Opera performance is this week and we where going to see her, but I may not get to go, I am sending my Wife for sure, but I probably will need to be here for Ryelee.

Well, I got to go, and do several things that must be done today, other than taking care of my friend and companion Ryelee, so I will talk to Y'all tomorrow.

My heart goes out to Ryelee and you Mr K. It's so hard when animals are ill and concerns about money go out of the window - we just do what we can for them. I also think our pets know when we're trying to help them.

I hope Ryelee is doing well at the vets and is soon back by your side.

Thanks Sue and Nakia;

Ryelee was a lot sicker than I thought, with the IV, his potassium level came down a small amount, (I misunderstood what she had said, it was still extremely high). By the time I got to the Vet hospital, it had gone back up. The Vet said that his Kidneys had failed, and it would take a few days to see if they improved at all, but she said that had a poor chance. He also had a infected prostrate, and it had a large growth on it, the Vet had a test sample sent to be tested but the test was not back yet, she said it may be cancer. she said Ryelee had several problems that individuality where very bad, but with everything together, his chances where not good. And being over 9 years old, it would be unlikely to have a good outcome. So to make a long story short...
I cried a lot, more than when my Mom passed away.

I am OK today, but it is sad. I will miss my Friend, not an On-Line friend, but a Real Life Friend.

Thanks Chris and Sil;

I had lunch with my Wife, today, leftover Chilli. I think she is a little worried about me, but I am fine today.

This afternoon, I have been getting some things done for my Van, so My Wife and I can go to Waco Saturday and come back Sunday. Had the oil changed, got the fuel system cleaned, flushed the power steering pump, and this shop gives you a free car wash and vacuum, so the van is clean. I got new windshield wipers and after I got home from doing all that, I cleaned the cabin air filter. Cleaning the fuel system made a lot of improvement in the power, it will also make it get better gas mileage.

Katie is singing in her 1st Opera, so we are excited to see her, and Kim and Casey are coming too, we may go pick them up on the way. It will be fun, well except for the inevitable questions about Ryelee, we told them about him, but there will be more to talk about when we all see each other.

The trip won't cost all that much, my Wife travels so much for work, that she has a lot of points she can use for the Hotel. 2 to 3 tanks of fuel costs a lot, and we will feed everybody, but it will be well worth it. Besides Waco is a nice little city.

The Dialogues of the Carmelites, is a very sad Opera, Katie says that there will be "not one dry eye in the House".

Here is a Link to a local newspaper article: the Waco Tribune: http://www.wacotrib.com/accesswaco/arts/188169971.html

Here is an old Metropolitan Opera version of the final scene: http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_detailpage&v=GcUXp-fpiD0[i]

Anyway, a fun trip with some crying at one point or another.

Have a wonderful time with your family. A good cry will do you good. Try not to worry about Ryelee, he is in good hands and getting the best of care. See you when you get back.
