Mount Rainier is our tallest at 14417.  
We have 24 peaks taller than your tallest.

Oh, I didn't claim to be a mountainous state, I just told him we had one or two.  If our climate and terrain was more appealing, we'd have more idiots moving here than we do now.  I wish we would close our state borders to the influx of California refugees escaping their suffocating governments and regulations.  Go away biatches.  They've already phucked up our Capital city of Austin with their quasi silicon valley tech centers

See what I mean UDub.  We'd take a few conservatives from Cali but they'd bring their libtard in-laws with them.  We'd end up with a Dui here and there with their widget distribution centers, phuck that

Not to mention that Rainier is way overdue for an eruption that may be one of the biggest on the mountain.  If that happens hot molten lava will mix with ice, mud, rocks to create a lahar flow that is wicked fast, maybe 100 mph and may bury a major population under 100 foot of mud killing them dead.   So may not be all it is cracked up to be.

As Bill Burr says, we need a thinning of the herd anyway.

This seems positive. 



"While Team Trump is divided over Iran policy — some say negotiate, others advocate pressure aimed at regime change — defiant Iranians taking to the streets of the capital are resolving that dispute decisively in favor of the latter.

Tehran’s grand bazaar was shut down Monday as merchants joined street protests and thousands defied thuggish regime riot police trying to quell the rebellion. Other big cities joined Tehran as well.

Protesters carried signs like “Leave Syria alone, think of us.” Hezbollah, Islamic Jihad and the Houthis — all proxy arms of the Islamic Republic’s strategy of spreading its version of the “Islamic revolution” across the region — weren’t spared protesters’ ire either.

In a modification of the regime’s “death to Israel” staple, some merchants raised “death to Palestine” signs on Monday. And worse, from the regime’s point of view: “Death to the dictator.”

I get down on my knees and pray that Trump does not botch this like Obama did.  Those people deserve their chance at joining the civil world and leaving those nasty Aytollah's behind.

Let the internal revolution happen.  Sometimes the best policy is to do nothing.

Agreed. Unfortunately, The Cheetoh does not seem good at doing Nothing.

Just a little venting.  This past week and today, I have had a lot of things to do to get ready for my upcoming hip surgery.  In doing this, I have met with a bunch of people in that time span and have gotten to every one of my meetings 15 minutes early.  I go by the saying, "if you are 5 minutes early, you are 10 minutes late."  Anyway, I am amazed that not one person was on timeNOT ONE!  A couple of these were favors for the people I was meeting.  In one where I was taking them some of my tools, I had to wait almost 30 minutes.   NEVER LOAN OUT YOUR TOOLS!  Why wouldn't a person call or text if they are running that late? Today, I had to do my pre surgery check up at the hospital.  I didn't even know that was a thing.  So, I was given a time and I showed up my typical 15 minutes early.  The lady at the check in tells me I am early and that my appointment was not until 1:00.  I told her I know.  She basically said that it doesn't matter showing up early that I won't get in early.  That hacked me off some.  I didn't think it would.  Anyway, I'm not used to this stuff.  IMO, it is inconsiderate to be late and I understand that sometimes it can't be helped.  To go an entire week with that happening tells me a lot about our times.  Oh, as I left the hospital, they told me not to show up early for my surgery.  Can you believe that?

I had my hip replaced Thursday morning at 7:30 a.m. and walked with a walker at 2.  I was released out of the hospital yesterday after walking a lot more and the Doctor doing a through evaluation.  Today, I am walking with a walker on the hour.  Some things I wanted to comment on:

  • Wow, I was amazed that I could get up and walk so fast.
  • I could only walk that quickly after surgery due to the drugs that I was given.  I didn't feel any pain.  No wonder those drugs are so addictive.  I asked the Doctor to get me off of them right away.
  • The Doctor told me that by the time I got home, I would be in great pain due to coming off of the opiate medication.  He was right.  
  • If you need rest, the hospital is not the place to be.  I got so many shots and do understand why.  However, it seemed that I could never sleep more than 30 minutes without getting stuck again.  
  • The therapy people at the hospital were really good as were the nurses.  
  • I have a cut that is right at 5 inches long and runs vertically along my right thigh.  They glued it together instead of stitches.  I was surprised by that.  
  • My Doctor wants a precise journal turned in when I return for my checkup.  He outlined everything in it from when I take my blood thinner to, Tylenol, to ...  I am to walk up and down the hall these first two days at home.  Then, I am to get outside and walk on the sidewalk about a half block and back. I even have to note showers.  I like having a Doctor who has outlined all of this.
  • Last night at 4:30 I busted out in a major sweat.  I could not stop sweating.  I don't know what caused that but it was not fun.  My wife helped me get to my lounge chair and I fell back to sleep. 
  • My brother had major constipation after his shoulder replacement surgery and so I was afraid of that.  The pain medication causes that.  I don't have to worry.  
I wanted to mention that on the day of my surgery, I was down 56 lbs.  I have lost more weight now.  I can't weigh myself since I can not bend down at all.  The Doctor said that I did so well that in 3 months, I can have my right knee done.  I think I will need to do it around Christmas but intend to go in and talk to my Principal as soon as I can drive to pick a time that will work for both of us.

Thanks for the update Coach, you are strong willed and a non-addictive type, what a blessing.  Stay strong and stay active, it's easy to get lazy after sugeries. I had 3 surgeries over the last 4 years and bounced back quick after all of them, neck fusion C5-6, bicep tear in forearm and a follow-up shoulder surgery

I went outside to sit for a while today.  I was not supposed to do so but then again, I can't stand being inside so, I won't stay inside.  This last couple of days have been something.  I bet I have had at least 5 people volunteer to mow my grass.  My neighbor said he would do it when he mows his.  One of the offers came from former player of mine in baseball and basketball.  He played for me in 1988.  He said that he and his boys would come over to mow.  I am so blessed.  While sitting outside, a local mowing firm was mowing one of the new house properties that have just been built and is up for sale.  The guy walks over and asked me if I wanted him to mow the grass.  I told him thanks but it is taken care of.  He said to let him know if it doesn't get taken care of since I taught his children, he could pay me back some and take care of the yard.  While in that conversation, a truck pulls up and a colleague gets out carrying my lunch.  Last year, the local deli had a special on their meatball sandwich.  It is awesome.  He remembered that and ordered one for me. 

Some people on this site put down Small Town USA calling the people rubes, hicks, ...  The reality is that they represent great American values and take care of their own.
