What really pisses me off here is that homosexuals are being thrown out of the services right and left. My brother had no choice. He served under the draft for Vietnam.

Now that he has Hodgkins (care of Mayo Cinic) they're dragging their feet.

Hard, isn't it, when you choose to send men or women to war?

UPDATE: Now that's better. 18 approved visits to a local rehab center. Only two weeks lost here.

Hell, yes, I'm cranky. We loaned Charles $10,000 for the nursing home because no one else was forthcoming. Time is a factor here, y'all. And my back hurts, right buttock and thigh.

Trouble here.

I don't know whether it's depression or something medical, but I'm getting no cooperation out of my brother.

This won't do.

Ye gads.

I was at the desk at the nursing home receiving instructions from Charles' nurse when the buzzer started buzzing and a man started screaming for a nurse.

After another nurse went to his room, I suppose, he started to yell.

"What have I done to deserve this?"

Charles said he hoped it wasn't the new admit who had a leg amputated from complications of diabetes.

Fat chance it wasn't, I think.

Charles has the crud, feels lousy. He has a low temperature. Pneumonia wouldn't be welcome about now, but a possibility.

UPDATE: Nah, nah. He had a pneumonia shot.

Charles went to the hospital in Jackson on March 21.

He's coming here from the nursing home tomorrow. He's up to using a walker now.

Radio XM40 notes:

Allman Brothers, Back Where It All Begins

I wanted to throw back the sunroof on the G35 and ride the road.

I could use a much cheaper car, but I'm not so sure I want to do without satellite radio anymore.

The son says to wait until XM and Sirius merge, as they are almost sure to do.
Lucy is making a honking noise sometimes during her mating ritual which sounds like she's playing a kazoo.

I have a question.

On I-20, in Vicksburg, and approaching the center of Jackson, MS, the A designated exits (such as 40A) go south and the Bs go north. Is that true all along I-20? All along east-west interstates?

Lucy laid an egg during her bath today.

This guy must search for Lucy in the sky with diamonds.
So is Al Gore totally out of the question as VP? Would it be such a step back for him? It couldn't be sweetened in any way with him in mind?
Al Gore was vice-president for eight years before, narrowly missed becoming president in 2000, and is now making money hand over fist doing things he believes in and loves.

Why would anyone think he'd volunteer to run as Obama's VP?

That is crazy talk.

Charles Gore is saying "Oak" today. That's part of his address.

Decrepit old men be dragging me down.

Cataract surgery for a left, and only working, eye today for Lyman -- successful so far

Dr. in Vicksburg working at getting Charles into VA at level required -- so, so

Charlie says "Charles Gore" thirty-five times.

This one is good, too.

I added two cans of Rotel tomatoes, and used chicken broth rather than water to cover the pork. Only 1 tablespoon of chipotle in adobo.

I doubt that it's particularly authentic, but it was tasty and easy to cook.
