In order that we might all raise the level of discourse and expand our language abilities, here is the daily post of "Word for the Day".

I thought it required us to be smarter than the average bear, good-looking and witty, not necessarily in that order. j/k

A mad woman excoriates the President by putting him in Mad Magazine. I wish that bag would take a douche (French for "shower"), things'd smell a lot better in your neck of the woods.

I think Robert excoriated his butt with this stunt.

Real homework, rme.... Hurricane Dennis failed to excoriate the coast of Florida. Thank God.

The drugs have kicked in and I am slightly better. Thank God for American health care. Free meds from the doc besides...... the dang sinus infection is fading.

The class badly needs some decoration today:

First, some alleged forget-me-knockwursts:


Second, a crocus in the grass as it should be instead of being in a flowerbed:


You're welcome.

I used to like seeing the crocuses in Ottawa scattered around the lawns. This was especially done for some reason in a section of town called Rockcliffe.

"yes, as a matter of fact, class IS opening early today : )"

Class will be open tomorrow between 5:00 and 5:15 a.m. Pacific Time. That's my time zone now. I'm bringing my handy dandy handcuffs, so all y'alls better behave, well, sort of behave.

T5, when all of you saw what was going on with that crazed woman, why didn't anyone hogtie her? She's dangerous with a capital D.

Hubby and another neighbor were going to rush her, tie her up and lock her in either our barn or his, but since she had already bitten, clawed and tried to stab both the fiance and her son and now had a knife, the neighbor's wife and I vetoed that idea-people can be incredibly strong and dangerous in manic mode.

The fiance, Charles Manson Eyes is coming over to her house this evening with a deputy to get his belongings she refuses to return-the deputy paid her a visit at her office at noon and informed her that it would be to her benefit not to think of starting any nonsense. My friend with the counseling practice said a bunch of us should get together and invite her to one of our houses, hide any weapons and do an intervention. I hate to do interventions, because sometimes they get very ugly, but it may be the only way as a last resort. I know that if she starts any crap with this deputy this evening, she is on her way to the psych ward-he has thought for awhile that is where whe needs to be-I pray that she starts something...

Why thanks!!! It will get a lot easier once I don't have to have the text enlargement turned on, and the "blobs" which appear to float in my field of vision gone ;-) Fortunately, Engineering has come to the rescue, with made to order, lens implants which are held in place by 2 curved spring wires, simultaneously centering the implant in the lens capsule, and acting as a framework for the body to permanently hold them in place. Supposedly, one's vision comes back to near perfect (I get measured tomorrow for the aforementioned implants). I did, however ask the MD why cataracts at my age, as I consider myself rather young to get them, and his response was "because" LOL...evidently these things can happen at just about any age, and they can go from nothing to bad in a really short time, as happened to me. What is most irritating is the stupid disorientation which comes because of the vast difference in sight between the eyes, and the difference in signals between the eyes and ears, not to mention the problems working with computers, or even reading... Yes I know that they will soon be gone with a couple of 15-20 min procedures, and my sight will be even better than before (kind of a "gimme" from the MD, who knows that for a former Comml pilot and Aeronautical Engineer, one is kind of vain about one's vision [vain, evil grin] and even though this won't give me my FAA medical back, it will allow me to discharge the various examples of extraordinary Design Engineering, tooland die making, machining, heat treating, and metal finishing previously d3monstrated by several Northeast Military Armories, without worry as to any embarrassment as to their accuracy caused by gwmoore ;-). This is good enough for me, and should keep me out of trouble for an indefinite period, as said examples require repairs, unobtrusive modifications ( for accuracy's sake, natchz), and the custom reloading of ammunition to cause to best possible accuracy. Since I have a duplicate of some of these examples, some machine work will be required, and once I can see, it will be time to demonstrate my dormant skills with the lathe, drill press, and Bridgeport Mill, as learned from various skilled tool and die men and modelmakers in aerospace....(who wants just one caliber, eh?)...... besides, I want to build one FINE bench rest example, caliber yet to be determined.....a lot of machining will be required.

Anyhow, my new fine sight will be well used, and since I already have a place which happens to possess the machine tools above, the future looks great ;-).......

Thanks, Rob't for welcoming me back, I will attempt to keep up with this as long as my eyes hold out and the screen mag works.. it's only 2 weeks until eye one (L) so I figure I can put up with the problem that long..

Keep the Faith for Freedom

No problem, will post the result ( I expect great results, and really don't have much choice,) these aren't for either cosmetic or vain reasons, heck, I can just about see at this point, so the implant is a necessity, the natural lenses having become cloudy. From the literature and from word of mouth, I have heard nothing but good about implants, and frankly, anything is better than seeing "blobs" hanging in front of both eyes LOL) When one can't read or post on FR without drastic measures, it's time for extraordinary procedures!!!!!

When one can't read or post on FR

Yes, my opthamologist is always very regular with his assessments year after year..."I've never seen someone so young with such consistent degeneration..."

Somehow FR by brailee will lose alot of nuance...

Wasn't there some kind of relationship between Magnum and Carol Burnett? They both lived in HI at the time of his killer series. I very well could be wrong. I lived in CA at the time of this gossip.

He's still danged gorgeous.
