Well, I hope you all did your civic duty and voted today.
I am very disappointed that that Constitution-hating bastard was re-elected. But, it was pretty much expected, given this is a blue state. Oh, Grandpa M, why didn't you move to Texas?!

Anyway, I saw this sign outside our voting place, the senior high school. I thought it was clever.

I'm sure you are all wondering if my lips fell off, or what, with regards to the poison eft (see previous post).
Well, the numbness finally faded last week. The lips are still slightly sensitive, and it almost feels like there is a slight blister under the skin. Which may be the case, as I bet the toxin killed some of the cells. I figure (hope) everything will be back to normal in a couple weeks.
I had googled info on the toxins, and came across a quote, which I will paraphrase - 'Keep them away from children and drunk people who may eat them.'

Finally got my bike trailer registered and inspected. My bro re-wired the whole thing when he was visiting, and we painted it and got new tires. It looks great.

We're keeping it at ma's during the winter because Larry tends to break the snow blower frequently, and repairs will be quicker if we can take it to the tractor shop instead of waiting for them to come pick it up.
I need to practice backing it up - I have never tried. And, I really don't want to but you can't park in a pull-thru every time!

Speaking of my bro - took this when we went to the Corn Festival. I thought it was funny.

Ah, let's see...what else. Took Harley to the doggy doctor last week for a general check-up. My poor, old doggie. Look at all that white. He used to be an all black dog!

I had it in my head he was 12 or 13yo. I must have been in denial, because the vet's record stated he was 13yrs 9mo old. Wowie. That is OLD for a big dog. Buck, our previous Lab, only lasted for 7yrs, but he developed kidney problems.
This age thing made me quite sad. Not only because I don't want to lose him, but his ageing tells me that I have aged, too. I was thinking (if a dog's life averages 10yrs), that I'm probably only good for one more dog in my life before I won't be able to take care of them properly. Am I even going to be able to take care of myself? What if I end up demented like my mother? Who's gonna - to be crass - wipe my ass?
I don't wanna think about it, it just makes me depressed.
And, speaking of depressed, my sister still can't see properly. I am spending an average of 10 hours a day over there doing the heavy work with ma. I am so very tired and sick of everything. Barb's going to the doctor next week, so I hope the bubble in her eye goes away by then. I don't know how much longer I can take this stress.

And, one last thing before I go to bed.
My odometer hit 100k in August and I had to pull over and take a pic because I did the same thing with my old 1976 Nova.

I was with my sis at the time and she yelled at me. What a killjoy. I told her it was better than me taking a pic while driving.
Sometimes I wonder if either one of us is adopted.

Good Night!

That sucks about your sister's eyes still not being better. Bleh! I hope the doctor's visit goes well so you can get some help with your ma.

Bike trailer looks awesome!

*hugs* back atcha.

Not just help with ma, but I don't have time to do anything at my house. I'm totally not ready for winter. Guess we'll see.

thanks, I am very happy with it. Pulling it with my truck makes me feel quite macho. ;)
