Offline for a bit

Folks, my day isn't starting out all that great, and as such I'm going to be offline for at least the morning.

Beastly and I moved some heavy shelves around in the shop this weekend and I over did it. Even though I was trying to be careful, I managed to aggravate my shoulder. I was in serious pain yesterday, but today it is much, much worse. I can't feel much in my left hand today and my shoulder and neck are absolutely killing me - and the fact that it is cold and raining today is not helping matters at all.

I have a couple of items that I want to blog about this week, yes, back to religion and politics, but frankly I just can't concentrate at the moment and I can't type worth a good goddamn.

So, until the pain goes away and I get some feeling back into my paws, I'm going to be offline.

In the mean time, go futz around with Vince's new blog or go bait the trolls on the Whateveresque.

Thanks and see you all later.


  1. So is it me, or is the 101st Keyboard Brigade over at the Whatever gone off the deep-end? It's like they're so deep into right field they have forgotten they're even playing baseball.

  2. Feel better, dude.

    Even if I'm somewhere to the right of Attila the Hun, I ain't going' back to the 'E.

    Can't make me.

  3. Rub some beer on it. That always makes me feel better.

  4. Jim, while I have not met Beastly, I have met you - and you do not qualify as a "heavy self". ;)

    That is all.

  5. Go have a good nap. And a hot shower.

    Hot showers always make me feel better.

    Then go see the damned doctor.

  6. Jeri, ah, yes. Got it. Thanks.

    Hands still not working very good, though the pain in my shoulder has gotten a bit better.

  7. Hot shower - yes, ma'am.

    As to the doctor, I've seen them. That's why I get VA disability. And that's about as much as they can do, but hey, I came back with all of my fingers and toes, so who's bitching?

    Perspective, ya gotta have it. That's what I'm saying here. :)

  8. (suspicious look)

    You're not just being one of those guys who refuses to go to the doctor on general principles?

    OK. Have another shower and relax some more!

  9. Hope you feel better. And may I suggest: maybe a decent sipping tequila or, if you're so inclined, scotch?

  10. Jamison's.

    However, booze doesn't go well with the pain pills.

    A little better today, at least I can turn my head. Still have no strength in my left arm, but I do have some feeling back in my fingers. So, it's all good. Should be back in top form, for me, tomorrow I would expect.

    Again, I'm not complaining, it's just the way it is.
