The List....

My brothers and I were sitting around one day when one of them complained about some minor thing he had going on. So I started remembering all the ailments I've dealt with over the years.  I rather blew them away.  

Not whining or feel sorry for myself (well maybe just a little).  Seems to me I should have gone out decades ago from any one of these.  But I'm one lucky cat, with one or two lives left.  Here's my list:

Parts removed:  1. Tonsils   2. Appendix.   3. Gall Baldder  4. Part of one finger gone, part of another sewn back on.

Parts broken:     1.  Left arm.  2. Multple ribs  3. Nose.  4.  Both ear drums. 

Wierd growths:   1.  Warts (I hate those things)   2. Some "kerotoma" thing on the left thigh.  3.  A cherry angioma.  

Impact damage:   1.  Bullet ricochet.  2.  Stabbed in left leg.  3. Knocked unconcious 7 times that I can remember.  4. Trebble fishing hook burried into right thigh.  5. Snow ski to the head w/sticthes.  6. Nail into left foot.

Parts replaced:  1.  Right knee ACL.  2.  Liver TX.

Near misses:   1.  On fire once.  

ER visits:     Honestly I have no idea.

And now I have a basil cell carcinoma the doc is going to cut out of my neck next week.  

When does this ride stop?

  • Only one way out....just look toward the better (quieter) times.  Sounds like a slow weekend 'round here.
